Will Brexit destroy UK tech ambition?

The 2010s were certainly eventful, to say the least. With four general elections and the momentous EU Referendum (not to mention numerous extensions to the Brexit deadline), it hardly comes as a surprise that this period brought great uncertainty for business leaders and consumers alike.


AI is Making Farming More Productive

Agriculture and farming are among the oldest yet one of the most important professions in the world. How we farm has come a long way and has advanced over time with the increase in population. The changes in farming have also been occasioned by the advancement in technology. As population continues to rise, land has become more valuable. People must, as a result, find new creative ways of improving how they get their food by embracing modern methods that require less land to produce high yields. Currently, agriculture is the backbone of many countries and is also a source of income for a lot of people and a significant contributor to GDP.


Smart Cities Are Still Not Prepared For the Impact of AI

AI has shaped many technologies and economies and is slowly being integrated into almost every aspect of our lives. Artificial intelligence AI refers to the ability of machines to mimic human behaviors like speaking, learning and doing tasks that were before thought could only be done by humans. This technology is now taking over many industries, and cities are among areas that will be highly affected by this technology in the future. While we expect AI to improve many aspects of our everyday lives, it will also disrupt many things including how we live and how our cities operate.


AI is Checking out the Old Masters

For years now, we have seen crazy things that Artificial intelligence (AI) can do like creating people who do not actually exist, creating virtual landscape and analyzing thousands or even millions of files and linking them together. Better yet, researchers at IBM have now come up with a new AI-driven technology that can convert a portrait photo into an amazing classical art painting. None of these applications could have been thought to be possible a few decades ago.


China Wants to Win AI Race to Top

China does not want to fall behind in the development of artificial intelligence, reports Scientific American. 

China not only has the world’s largest population and looks set to become the largest economy — it also wants to lead the world when it comes to artificial intelligence (AI).


Manage Smart Factories at Any Time, From Any Location with Lightapp Analytics

Manufacturing facilities are complex operations. By manufacturing standards, some of the “newer” plants are over 25 years old. It is also quite common that a plant built for one specific purpose years ago is used today by a different manufacturer making different products. Adding to the complexity, no two manufacturing plants in the world are identical. They are all different shapes, sizes, and in different locations. Heating and cooling systems at a plant in the California desert will react differently compared to a plant in Calgary, Canada.  


Artificial Intelligence Being Used in Gaming

Artificial intelligence is entering more and more industries and is changing fortunes at an unprecedented pace. The latest beneficiary of this technology is the gaming industry. Due to artificial intelligence algorithms, video games are now more interesting due to the environment and characters which are capable of adapting to the changing situations. These algorithms help to generate behaviors which are not only intelligent but also responsive and make your interactions as a player more interesting. AI is used to make non-player characters (NPC’s) easy to interact with than ever.


AI in the legal sector

While the working practices of many in the legal industry can be difficult to change given its established traditions and processes, recent trends suggest that lawyers are beginning to embrace the new. Indeed, forward thinking legal firms are increasingly integrating AI in order to streamline their processes and reduce the time spent on administrative tasks.


2 Key Administrative Functions Better Left To AI

The use of artificial intelligence for key administrative functions evens the playing field for those who can’t afford an extra employee. Also, it expands the role for traditional admins.


Let’s Talk Ethics: Big Data’s Bigger Issues

Thanks to Big Data, today’s information is constantly streaming; whether it’s news, sports, entertainment, or business, there is always something churning on the web. While having all this data at our virtual fingertips represents the latest technological breakthroughs, it is worth considering the ethical ramifications of this instant consumption.
