AI is the future of what exactly?
New era
One often hears that AI is the future, and that it is poised to change the world in the coming years. However, such grandiose statements often lack clarity and are not helpful in trying to decipher which specific areas are advancing thanks to AI, which are lagging behind in the implementation of AI, and which are simply not living up to the hype.

Multimodal AI for Healthcare
Game-changers
Multimodal artificial intelligence is the new kid on the AI block. It uses several data types, such as image, text, speech, and numerical data, and combines them with multiple intelligence processing algorithms to achieve higher performance. Data scientist and astrophysicist Dr Kirk Borne applies some context to multimodal AI’s ability to sense, understand, assimilate, synergize, and learn from multiple diverse inputs.

AI in the Long Tail
Domain knowledge
This cogent article by Kirk Borne employs mathematical reasoning to explore how smaller companies’ collective investments - the ‘long tail’ - drive the advance of artificial intelligence even more than outlays by bigger players, particularly in healthcare.
