Evolution of Speech Recognition Technology

Communication plays an essential role in our lives. Humans started with signs, symbols, and then made progress to a stage, where they began communicating with languages. Later computing and communication technologies came. Machines began communicating with humans and in some cases, with themselves also. The communication created the world of the internet, or as we…

AI boosts clarity of laser-based imaging tech

Artificial intelligence can improve the quality of optoacoustic imaging, researchers report. This relatively young medical imaging technique can be used for applications such as visualizing blood vessels, studying brain activity, characterizing skin lesions, and diagnosing breast cancer. However, quality of the rendered images is very dependent on the number and distribution of sensors used by…

USAA’s Latest AI-Powered Customer Experience/Insurtech Innovation Is A Collaboration With Google Cloud

my Forbes article here and in my upcoming book, Ignore Your Customers (And They’ll Go Away), which HarperCollins Leadership is on the cusp of releasing. USAA’s leadership in innovation related to customer service and customer experience is unparalleled. It has over 900 patents based on innovations suggested by employees, most often, incredibly, by […]

Bio-circuitry mimics synapses and neurons in a step toward sensory computing

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the University of Tennessee and Texas A&M University demonstrated bio-inspired devices that accelerate routes to neuromorphic, or brain-like, computing. Results published in Nature Communications report the first example of a lipid-based “memcapacitor,” a charge storage component with memory that processes information much like synapses do…

The head of IBM’s Watson walks us through the exact model tech leaders can use to build excitement around any AI project

Chief technology, data, and innovation officers are often managing enterprise-wide digital upgrade efforts.To succeed, the leaders need tech chiefs within respective business units — like logistics or human resources — to implement the overall digital strategy, argues IBM’s Rob Thomas, a model he refers to as “hub-and-spoke.” But overcoming cultural barriers within organizations remains a challenge…
