‘Consumers around the world are ready to embrace AI and robotics for their healthcare needs’ says Dennis Brown from PwC.

According to PwC research more than half of customers (54%) are willing to engage with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics for their healthcare needs. Easier and quicker accessibility (34%) as well as faster and more accuracy (31%) are seen as the main advantages of using new technology in the healthcare, while ‘human touch’ (47%) and trust (38%) are the biggest challenges.  

As the healthcare industry is experiencing its most rapid pace of change and innovation, it comes as no surprise that people are finally ready to embrace emerging technologies, which, undoubtedly, have the potential to transform the healthcare, and make it faster, better, more accurate and accessible than ever.

Artificial Intelligence in the Banking Sector

Posted by Anna Mielczarek on 18-Oct-2018 07:30:00

The pace at which companies are investing in artificial intelligence (AI) continues to gain momentum and the financial sector is no exception. In fact, according to Business Insider report ‘AI is one of the most commonly referenced terms by financial institutions (FIs) and payments firms when describing their vision for the future banking sector as it can be applied to almost every area of financial services.’

But that’s not all! As stated by global management consultancy Accenture, banks that invest in AI and human-machine collaboration tools could boost their revenue by over a third (34%) by 2022.

Moreover, AI is considered one of the most important disruptive technologies for today’s banks, as a recent PwC survey revealed that 72% of senior management see AI and machine learning (ML) as key sources of competitive advantage. The same survey also highlighted that 52% of firms in the financial services sector are already making substantial commitments to AI, with 66% projecting significant investments by 2020.

So, it seems that these numbers speak for themselves – when it comes to financial services AI is a must!

But how exactly AI can help banks improve their operations and bring them closer to their customers?

Can Technology Transform Education?

Posted by Fran Geddes on 23-Jan-2018 11:45:18

In the first 10 months of 2017, $8.15 billion was invested in edtech companies. And according to Global Report, EdTech spending is expected to rise to $252bn by 2020.
