Artificial Intelligence Shows Promise As Clinical Development Tool [60966]
By Srinivas Karri, February 22nd, 2017

Srinivas writes in Forbes, "During a typical day, we use a variety of applications that, by virtue of their artificial intelligence, automatically understand our speech and provide near-real-time feedback to support decision-making. Think Siri. But is machine learning, one of a number of AI techniques, ready for clinical applications, specifically to accelerate drug development and/or reduce development costs?

First, some context. Machine learning encompasses a variety of algorithmic techniques that clinical drug developers can use to identify and infer patterns to support enhanced/automated decision-making. One such technique is Natural Language Processing, which can be used to 'read' scientific text and infer its semantic context in order to search and find information more easily..."

New ORACLE TEAM USA Boat An Engineering Marvel, Data Machine [60729]
By Rob Preston

ORACLE TEAM USA has unveiled the sailing machine it will take into its defense of the America's Cup this coming June: a sleek, aerodynamically sculpted foiling catamaran that is both a work of modern art and an engineering marvel.

Adhering to the new specs of this year's competition, the new and improved yacht, unveiled Tuesday evening at ORACLE TEAM USA's base here, is 15 meters (49.21 feet) long and weighs 2,400 kilograms (5,291 pounds). Those dimensions make it considerably shorter and lighter than the 72-foot colossus ORACLE TEAM USA sailed to a historic come-from-behind 9-8 victory over Emirates Team New Zealand in the last America's Cup competition, on San Francisco Bay in September 2013.

GE Digital: Beyond A 'Cartoonish Version' Of The Internet Of Things [60730]
By Rob Preston

Rob writes, "No blue chip company has embraced the Internet of Things more aggressively than industrial giant GE. The company's software-endowed wind turbines, medical imaging systems, lighting fixtures, appliances, jet engines, locomotives, and other internet-connected 'things' now generate reams of data, which GE and its customers analyze to improve system uptime, cut costs, and deliver a variety of other business outcomes.

For example, by using software developed on GE's Predix operating system to collect and analyze the terabytes of data generated by a jet engine every flight, the maintenance crews of GE's airline customers can determine when to replace a component before it malfunctions, avoiding costly unscheduled downtime. To put that opportunity into context, GE estimates that 41% of flight cancellations or delays are caused by mechanical failure. How much would it be worth to an airline to eliminate such failures?..."

G&J Pepsi-Cola Bottlers Uses Modern HR To Compete For Top Talent [60731]
By Rick O'Herron

Rick writes, "When Christina Walker joined G&J Pepsi-Cola Bottlers as executive vice president of HR in 2015, the CEO wanted Walker to completely transform HR. He wanted the company to attract qualified candidates, prepare the next set of leaders, and have a succession strategy in place. The CEO also wanted the workforce to be competitive for top talent in their region for years to come.

What Walker discovered was that the HR department of the largest family-owned and operated Pepsi franchise bottler had become focused on tactical tasks, such as mastering the mysteries of pivot tables in Excel, rather than on strategic activities..."
