Everybody comes to Hollywood — AI as well

“The possibilities for artificial intelligence in business are almost endless” — Hopkins, 2020

And we can see the demonstration of that in almost every industry.

Already in 2017, 83% of businesses believed that AI is a focus priority for their business strategy.

Today, the number of industries that are not only testing, but already successfully implementing AI systems is rapidly growing. By automating various repetitive tasks and quickly analysing large amounts of data, AI has provided multiple benefits in many industries.

In the visual entertainment sector, AI is widely used to analyze the user’s interests and activity on the platform…


and providing people with some time to prepare

When I was 8 years old, I remember my older sister has taught me that if at night the sky is clear and you can see stars, the next day will be sunny. I was following this simple weather forecasting technique since then. Sometimes successful, sometimes not. But yes, I’ve noticed the pattern.

This is one of the ways sailors used to predict the weather. This particular prediction works on observations and finding certain distinctive characteristics of the same event.

When it comes to professional meteorological research, the collected data is much wider than 1 variable (clear night sky). Experts…

Artificial Intelligence

can AI guide us through our lives?

In 2021, Mental health is one of the trending subjects. The pandemic has brought us many undesirable consequences not only to our daily routine but also to our mindset. Different people experience different psychological after-effects they have never had before.

Some habits that we acquired during the last year like washing hands or give away banknotes forever — bring no harm. …


let’s imagine you’re researching penguins…

Situation: You are researching penguins in Antarctica for a WWF project.

The aim of your research is to understand the habitat, the features, the food web and the overall ‘lifestyle’ of Antarctic penguins. This information will help you to understand how climate change could affect the Antarctic penguins and how WWF and AI can potentially help them.

Your research requires not only facts about penguins and their ecosystem but also some numbers. While some research data you can collect manually from the drone videos, satellites, cruise ships and camera traps, some data is very hard to collect and to analyse.

The example?

One of the hard data that you need is…


Let’s save them all!

In 2019, out of 105,000 species, Red List identified that 28,338 are at the risk of extinction because of human activity. Today, the list has grown to 32,000 of species on the brink of extinction, including 14% of all birds and 26% of all mammals.

Of course, some damage was caused by the natural climate cycles. But the greatest damage is human-made.

The human activities such as poaching, land development and regular harmful environment emissions have already brought biological diversity to the alarming state.

Here I would like to cover how AI can help us do the best we can…


Spatial computing, quantum sensing, virtual patients

During the last 20 years, the World has faced such pace of a technological growth the society has never experienced before. In 2020, the World Economic Forum identified technologies that not only will emerge but also have the greatest potential to positively transform our society on a global scale. One of the industries that are getting a lot of interest and attention at the current moment is the medical technology industry.

According to Statista (2020), the total global MedTech industry size approximately is worth half a trillion U.S. dollars. Robot-assisted surgeries and Medical AI are already considered as crucial industry…

Including AI Passports & Robot Taxes

What was nothing more than science fiction yesterday quickly becomes today’s reality. With 77% of the devices, we use every day have one or another form of AI, Artificial Intelligence is clearly not a futuristic concept anymore. Over the last two decades, the number of AI startups grew 14 times and the investment in AI startups grew 6 times.

With such a rise in the interest and continuous developments of AI have brought the industry to an absolutely new level. According to TechJury (2020), AI will cause the growth of the global GDP by $15.7 trillion by 2030.

With such…
