Op/Ed: AI Simplifies Maritime’s Digital Transformation

op/ed: ai simplifies maritime’s digital transformation

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already being applied in both ship and yacht building by a number of maritime companies that are currently using it successfully. AI technology makes a completely new way of working possible. It helps companies to operate competitively in a highly competitive maritime world.I believe in this way of working, and we have adjusted our software accordingly. I’m convinced that any software which cannot deal with AI has no future. So don’t lose track, and work toward knowledge-driven operations with the help of AI. I’ll show you how AI is applied in the maritime world, explain its benefits and also alleviate your fears.Transition from document-driven operations to knowledge-driven operationsI know from experience that maritime knowledge is hidden in tens of thousands of documents. A lot of companies want to implement knowledge-driven operations by introducing a digital system, but they dread the amount of manpower required to clean up and enter the data. How can this be done better? This is a question I’m asked frequently. Fortunately, a lot is possible nowadays. Let me take you to the new way of working where you benefit from Artificial Intelligence.AI removes the barriers to digital …

Over the past decade, cloud computing grew from a tool used primarily by large scientific collaborations to one of the core technologies beneath the hood of the internet and other critical systems. That evolution continues today, as the Internet of Things (IoT), more powerful mobile applications, and serverless computing drive new scientific and commercial uses of cloud computing.

Since it launched in 2015, Chameleon has enabled these innovations by providing thousands of computer scientists with the bare metal access they need to assemble and test new cloud computing approaches. Under a new four-year, $10 million grant from the National Science Foundation, the cloud computing testbed led by the University of Chicago will further broaden its scope, adding new features for reproducibility, IoT and networking experimentation, and GPU computation to its core mission.
“Chameleon is a scientific instrument for computer science systems research,” said Kate Keahey, Consortium for Advanced Science and Engineering (CASE) Senior Scientist affiliated with the University of Chicago Department of Computer Science, Senior Computer Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, and principal investigator of the Chameleon project. “Astronomers have telescopes, biologists have microscopes, and computer scientists have Chameleon.”
In its first five years, Chameleon …

Assistant Professor Andrea Zaph (right) works with students Haley Merrill (foreground) and Samantha Garvin (background) on analyzing samples in the Medical Laboratory Technology program at Shawnee State University. The program has 100 percent placement of its graduates seeking employment in the field.








Student James Parsons in Shawnee State University’s Medical Laboratory Technology program takes notes on a sample he is analyzing in one of SSU’s labs. The work is often considered “behind the scenes” in medical care but fills the critical process of giving potentially life-saving information to medical care providers.











Shawnee State University’s Medical Laboratory Technology program is helping place graduates in southern Ohio’s regional medical facilities with laboratory testing under great pressure from COVID-19.
“Medical laboratory technicians are in a hidden profession that saves lives,” Program Director Jean McGlone explained. “The pandemic has shed some light on this, but it’s still largely misunderstood.”
Medical laboratory technicians (MLTs) work “behind the scenes” testing and analyzing samples to determine critical information about patients’ conditions. For anyone who enjoys science and could be passionate about medicine but not necessarily hands-on patient care, the field is an excellent choice.
Shawnee’s program awards students an associate degree in …

COVID-19 Presents an Opportunity for Digital Transformation in the Caribbean – Caribbean News

covid-19 presents an opportunity for digital transformation in the caribbean – caribbean news

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

In keeping with CARICOM’s 2014 decision to establish the CARICOM region as a Single Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Space, in February 2017 the Heads of Government approved the Vision and Roadmap for the CARICOM Single ICT space to guide its implementation. The overarching objective of the Single ICT Space is to provide the digital layer to underpin the Caribbean Single Market Economy.

The most significant outcomes resulting from a CARICOM Single ICT Space are ubiquity and consistency of ICT services across the region at affordable prices to citizens. Other outcomes include:

Equitable, affordable access to broadband information and communication technologies, which are secure, ubiquitous and reliable; and facilitate the rapid acquisition, processing and dissemination of information.The use of ICTs to gather information and knowledge, analyze and disseminate it effectively for citizens’ social and economic progress.Enhancement of regional trade, innovation, competitiveness and citizen welfare; and Practical support for the realization of the CARICOM digital economy.

Unfortunately, these outcomes haven’t been realized because the required human and financial resources for the implementation of the CARICOM Single ICT Space initiative wasn’t allocated. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced some very fundamental changes in social interactions and business dealings.

The Digital Transformation of Compliance & Reporting in Business

the digital transformation of compliance & reporting in business

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Digital transformation has been a trend in the news for a while now, and recently it got me thinking: about how we work, what this means for businesses, and where technologies like AI, machine learning, and cloud software can ease the burden on employees
and finance organisations, allowing them more time to work on meaningful things.
These types of considerations are all part of what I call the
Fourth Industrial Revolution, during which corporate compliance and reporting needs to transform in order to face unforeseen circumstances, most notably COVID-19 and its impact on global markets. There is a lot of pressure on government agencies and regulatory
authorities to reduce the high costs of compliance and to create better economic conditions for business growth and also capital allocation, for the reduction of operating expenses that are typically funded by treasury departments who ideally, need to do more
with less.
Not long ago, people would have never imagined a future in banking, finance or accounting that operated on cloud-based frameworks, open data standards, applications for automation to reduce lags and latencies in business reporting, and compliance processes.
Today, and particularly since the onset of remote working, the way businesses operate has shifted, …
