Window-shopping, buying a coffee, searching for a restroom—all of these activities are traced, timed and tracked in a smart city like Quayside, Toronto. And the concept of a data trust doesn’t address the thorny question of who owns the data that’s gathered and whether people can opt out in a meaningful way.
When 5G technology goes mainstream, will media outlets be able to draw readers and viewers into a more immersive experience, one that’s unimaginable today with the current bandwidth limitations? This advanced technology offers massive opportunity to deliver content in AR and VR formats.
When patients have technology implanted in their brains, what happens to the line between human and machine? I AM HUMAN focuses on the industry innovators who are developing experimental devices and treatments to help patients like Anne, who is fighting Parkinson’s disease and Stephen, who has lost his vision.
Artificial intelligence and machines’ ability to reason to has come a long way since French philosopher René Descartes pontificated this concept nearly 400 years ago. Learn how significant amounts of research, government funding and increasing computational power has advanced human-machine partnerships to where they are today, and where they are headed next.
Miku Jha, Founder and CEO of AgShift, started thinking about “closing the gap between food and technology” in 2016 when California was facing a drought. Her solution to the food waste problem, particularly in the supply chain, is a digitized inspector called Hydra F100 BQ. This analyzer uses artificial intelligence to assess fruits’ quality, which provides an “unbiased pair of eyes,” speeds the inspection process and reduces food wastage.
Brainwave technology, AI and VR are changing the future of consumer insights, using brain data to drive product development, market research and a more personalized shopping experience. Headsets and software plus AI is creating a case of human and machine instead of human vs. machine.
