Why AI might be the most effective weapon we have to fight COVID-19

Article | March 22, 2020

If not the most deadly, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is one of the most contagious diseases to have hit our green planet in the past decades. In little over three months since the virus was first spotted in mainland China, it has spread to more than 90 countries, infected more than 185,000 people, and taken more than 3,500 lives. As governments and health organizations scramble to contain the spread of coronavirus, they need all the help they can get, including from artificial intelligence. Though current AI technologies are far from replicating human intelligence, they are proving to be very helpful in tracking the outbreak, diagnosing patients, disinfecting areas, and speeding up the process of finding a cure for COVID-19.

Make Microlearning More Effective By Using Chatbots

Article | March 22, 2020

If I ask you, "What is the most popular format for microlearning?" your response would most likely be "videos." For most of us, videos have become synonymous with microlearning. Interesting videos with the right storyline, engaging graphics, and optimal speed can be a great microlearning aid. But even when they come with a lot of benefits, videos are hard to maintain and update frequently. Considering this challenge, can you think of an easier approach that can be considered for developing microlearning? Personally, I learn well through Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Short questions and precise answers can make learning really effective. Owing to technology advancement, we can now create chatbots to consume nuggets of information in a question-and-answer format. A learner can ask a question and get a quick short answer at the point of need. These bots can be updated easily for frequently changing content and changes can be displayed to learners immediately.

With fraud losses accounting for about 3% of the nation’s overall health care spending each year, pharmacy benefit management firms would be wise to seize the opportunity to battle endemic fraud, waste, and abuse (FWA). The upside can be significant, according to the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association, which estimates annual losses at $68 billion nationally. While the savings are potentially huge, identifying instances of FWA hiding in the massive data volumes generated by prescribing, dispensing, and covering medicines is no easy feat.

How Enterprise Companies Are Changing Recruitment With AI

Article | March 22, 2020

The writing is on the wall, boldly: Artificial intelligence is here to stay, and it is transforming every aspect of life and business. Over the years, the adoption of AI in recruiting has increased, and that has subsequently improved the hiring processes of enterprises that take advantage of it. Initially, its introduction wasn’t so welcomed, not just because experts believed that it would take the jobs of HR personnel, but particularly because of the possibility that it would make the recruitment process overly robotic and remove the sacred "human" factor in HR.
