There is a constant stream of innovation happening in storage technology, and the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) market is leading the way. According to this report, the HCI market is expected to be worth $17.1 billion by 2023. This projected growth could be put down to the myriad of advantages that HCI offers, including single-pane-of-glass management, reduced rackspace and power which means greener data centres, and improved disaster recovery capabilities to list a few.
As of 2017, only 20 per cent of organisations were using artificial intelligence (AI) in their daily operations. While AI algorithms are still being developed and optimised, this technology already helps companies significantly improve the way they perform routine business tasks. And by allowing mundane tasks to be done more consistently and accurately, AI can provide employees with more time and mental space to perform cognitively sophisticated tasks.
Among the 20 per cent of organisations using AI, many have developed useful methods for deploying it in their operations. Here are some intriguing cases of AI deployment to encourage you to delegate your own repetitive tasks to the technology.
More than a fifth of Britons would trust artificial intelligence (AI) to better handle political negotiations – including Brexit – over human politicians, new research suggests. The survey of 2,000 people in the UK also found that nearly a third would follow financial advice given to them by AI.
The European Union has unveiled proposals to regulate artificial intelligence that call for strict rules and safeguards on risky applications of the rapidly developing technology.
The report is part of the bloc’s wider digital strategy aimed at maintaining its position as the global pacesetter on technological standards.
Like many other companies seeking to orchestrate the raft of technologies entering the market, the British Heart Foundation recently appointed its debut CTO. Ursula Dolton, who has had a wide-ranging career, working for likes of Jaguar & Land Rover, Citi Group and in a variety of sectors, was chosen to steer the ship.
The charity, which provides support to the millions of people living with heart and circulatory disease and conducts invaluable medical research, has an ambitious goal of creating a “world free from the fear of heart and circulatory disease” by 2030. Ursula’s role is to ensure that technology – including data, AI, cloud computing – serves this objective.
