Will Technology Replace The Physician to Diagnose and Treat Diseases?

Will Technology Replace The Physician to Diagnose and Treat Diseases? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
IBM’s Watson supercomputer has been furiously studying all the medical literature that is out there. Combining its cognitive computing capabilities with a capacity to read 65 Million pages of text per second, Watson is now a qualified doctor and is capable of diagnosing diseases based on symptoms and even recommending a treatment.

With the help of natural language processing (NLP), the computer not only pulls out relevant terms to match the search terms in a clinician's query, but it also understands idioms and some sentences with incorrect English. Experts at IBM are quick to point out that Watson is not just a "search engine on steroids" or even a massive database. In fact, Watson relies on parallel probabilistic algorithms to analyze millions of pages of unstructured text in patient records and the medical literature to locate the most relevant answers to diagnostic and treatment-related questions.

What Human Emotions Do We Really Want Of Artificial Intelligence?

What Human Emotions Do We Really Want Of Artificial Intelligence? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Forget the Turing and Lovelace tests on artificial intelligence: I want to see a robot pass the Frampton Test. Let me explain why rock legend Peter Frampton enters the debate on AI. For many centuries, much thought was given to what distinguishes humans from animals. These days thoughts turn to what distinguishes humans from machines.

¿Qué es lo que hacen las empresas más exitosas, en términos de innovación? Para determinarlo, IBM aplicó en 2014 una encuesta a 1,000 directivos y sus reportes directos, incluyendo 108 participantes japoneses. A partir de los resultados de esta encuesta, IBM recomienda a las empresas japonesas que implementen estrategias similares a las que emplean las empresas más exitosas. Estas empresas innovan a partir de una diversidad de estrategias relacionadas con su estructura organizacional, cultura y procesos.

Se crea en un laboratorio el primer agujero gusano magnético que conecta dos regiones del espacio

Se crea en un laboratorio el primer agujero gusano magnético que conecta dos regiones del espacio | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Películas como «Stargate», «Star Trek» o «Interstellar» han popularizado el término «agujero de gusano», que es una hipotética característica topológica de un espacio-tiempo que, en esencia, consiste en un atajo a través del espacio y el tiempo. Lo ideal para llegar a un planeta remoto en un instante.
Ahora, científicos de la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB), ha logrado crear el equivalente magnético a un agujero de gusano. Este túnel invisible, pues, conecta magnéticamente dos regiones del espacio, según publican en la revista en Scientific Reports."

The Most Effective Way to Protect an Aging Brain

The Most Effective Way to Protect an Aging Brain | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Researchers have known for some time that exercise is good for aging brains. The latest studies, though, are adding some finer points to that message: While exercise appears to work best before memory fades, it also benefits people who've already gotten dementia. And it seems to help not just with Alzheimer's disease, but also with vascular dementia, a kind of memory loss that’s caused by "silent" strokes in the brain.

Robots Will Steal Our Jobs, But They’ll Give Us New Ones

Robots Will Steal Our Jobs, But They’ll Give Us New Ones | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Humans must build these machines and program them and repair them. But they must also train them. This is true of “deep learning” AI, and it’s true of robots like Baxter. Baxter must be programmed to perform certain tasks, and that involves physically moving his limbs back and forth.

IBM is touting the arrival of Watson, a broad collection of online tools that use artificial intelligence to help diagnose disease, among other things, and so many others are exploring similar work. But whatever the message from IBM, such tools operate alongside humans, not in lieu of them. “Watson is like a robotic colleague,” says Gownder. “It’s job transformation, not job replacement.”
