IBM Watson and AI Are Changing the Way Businesses Operate by Paul from TG Daily

Whether you believe it or not, the future is here with Artificial Intelligence (AI). We may not be the Jetsons, but we are getting there quickly! Businesses are reaping the benefits of the AI and all that it can offer them. AI works alongside human support to help businesses operate at a higher and more effective level. Static software is unable to learn and adapt from situations like AI is able to do; this ability gives AI a wider range of options it can make for various decisions.

Here are 3 big industries that are reaping the benefits of AI like IBM Watson:

  • Healthcare: The healthcare industry is using AI to help analyze patient data, offer treatment options, and also help diagnose possible issues.
  • Agriculture: Deep learning has enabled farmers to monitor livestock, pinpoint harmful weeds, and manage large crops with higher efficiency.
  • Sports: AI can help coaches make strategic decisions and improve game predictions and opponent preparation.

Mayo Clinic Finds IBM Watson Increases Enrollment of Clinic Trials by Laura Lovett

Recently the Mayo Clinic released the results of their newest study that showed a huge 80% increase in enrollment of clinic trials for breast cancer. These enrollments were done using IBM's Watson for clinical trials matching system, a system that helps match patients with clinical trials that could help them deal with their diagnosis.

CIO of the Mayo Clinic, Christopher Ross, was quoted as saying, “Watson is able to give us faster, better matching of patients to potential clinical trials that our oncologists wouldn’t have otherwise been able to see — and I sit with our oncologists who work on this kind of thing. “[The oncologist's] day, every day, is to sit with stage four breast cancer patients who have no hope and I don’t know how she does it. But she’s excited about that work because of the true potential to get better results from those patients every day.”

See what else Ross has to say about the amazing things that IBM Watson is doing for the Mayo Clinic.
