Robotic process information (RPA) has tremendous potential to help fintech. Here is how.
Since proteins are the molecular machines that are responsible for most life processes, studying them gives insight into how diseases develop at the microscopic level.
Folding@Home, winner of VentureBeat’s 2021 AI for Good award, simulates protein behavior with massive distributed computing power. It uses AI to strategically map each protein that it evaluates, to allocate computing resources, and to identify structural...
Guests want seamless, immersive experiences—and executives need to deliver those experiences while increasing revenue. 5G can help both parties and raise expectations at businesses that specialize in hospitality—hotels, stadiums and cruise ships, among them.
The introduction of 5G technology is a complex operation involving a new way of looking at systems architecture that can help expand the use of cloud models such as mobile edge computing (MEC), massive machine-type communications and other low-latency applications. Artificial intelligence (AI) and networking will need to play a crucial role in leveraging the many benefits of 5G at scale to successfully accommodate many moving parts.
Artificial intelligence can help disaster recovery and management. Here's how one company in the construction industry uses AI.
The growth of eHealth presents a number of challenges, including how to actually make remote monitoring of medical devices work securely and without interference. I wrote this column about how electronics engineers will have to work with these factors in medtech.
Winner of VentureBeat's 2021 Innovation in Edge award, SambaNova has shifted focus from AI chip development to machine learning services.
Many startups fail due to cash flow challenges. Keeping an eye on financials is important, but bookkeeping and back office tasks might not be every startup’s strength. Especially when operating under tight seed money and capital, employing an entire back office might not make sound business sense. This is where Pilot, winner of VentureBeat’s 2021 AI Business Application Innovation award, comes in.
The appetite for online shopping spiked dramatically during the Covid-19 pandemic. Sales in the e-grocery sector alone increased by an impressive $60 billion last year, according to Mercatus. That growth spurt, coupled with consumer demand for rapid delivery, meant retailers had to reconfigure their fulfillment operations in a hurry. Automated micro-fulfillment centers, or MFCs, with sizes usually ranging between 10,000 and 20,000 square feet, are emerging as a solution to these challenges.
There’s Netflix for movies. Stitch Fix for clothes. Hungryroot, an AI-powered delivery service, hopes to occupy a similar niche for online groceries in the United States. The recommender system uses a collaborative filtering, supervised learning model to match consumer preferences to foods.
Airport revenues depend on passenger volume. So when the number of air passengers globally declined by 65% in 2020, airports took a hit, according to Airports Council International-North America, the trade association representing commercial service airports in the United States and Canada. To help, the Federal Aviation Administration will award $8 billion in grants and has formed the Airport Rescue Grants program to oversee distribution of these funds.
Of the nearly 1.7 million prime-age (25-54) engineering workers in the United States in 2019, only 14% were either Black or Latinx (a gender-neutral term for the Latino community) despite making up almost one-third of the U.S. adult population. And only 3% of engineers in 2019 were Black or Latinx women.
