Basics needed to swerve security apocalypse

| July 27, 2017

When we last spoke towards the end of 2015, Sophos’ Global Head of Security Research James Lyne predicted a bumpy 2016 and beyond: chiefly that ransomware would continue to grow in popularity, and that the Internet of Things producers would be in for a ‘big wake-up call’ if they didn’t address the security basics they were failing to implement in their devices. Since then, we’ve seen Dyn buckle under the weight of a DDoS attack powered thousands of IoT-enable CCTVs, and thousands of companies brought to a standstill thanks to the WannaCry ransomware.

How Artificial Intelligence Helps in Health Care

Article | April 14, 2020

Artificial intelligence has disrupted different spheres of our lives and a number of industries. It has already become commonplace to such an extent that we sometimes aren’t even aware that we’re using the benefits of this advanced technology. For example, every time Amazon recommends a product you might be interested in, or you ask Alexa to order some food online, it’s AI at work. But apart from these very practical use cases that make our lives easier, AI has also revolutionized health care, and together with its subsets machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP), and others, it will continue to evolve and establish itself as a critical component of this industry.

The advances of AI in healthcare

With the Government investing £250 million into the project, the Lab will consider how to use AI for the benefit of patients – whether this be the deployment of existing AI methods, the development of new technologies or the testing of their safety. Amongst other things, the initiative will aim to deliver earlier diagnoses of cancer. It is estimated that in excess of 50,000 extra patients could see their cancer being detected at an early stage, thus boosting survival rates. More specifically, a study has shown that AI is quicker in identifying brain tumour tissue than a pathologist.This would have a positive knock-on effect in other areas, such as enabling money to be saved (that otherwise would have been spent on further treatment) and reducing the workload of staff (at a time when there is a crisis in NHS workforce numbers).

Artificial intelligence can help some businesses but may not work for others

Article | April 14, 2020

AI should not be applied to every business in the same manner, according to Chris Meyer, professor of practice and the director of undergraduate education at the Lally School of Management at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He details his research on the subject in a new conceptual paper published today in a special issue of the Journal of Service Management on "AI and Machine Learning in Service Management." "AI has the potential to upend our ideas about what tasks are uniquely suited to humans, but poorly implemented or strategically inappropriate service automation can alienate customers, and that will hurt businesses in the long term," Meyer said.
