When you hear technology in pharmaceutical industry, what’s your first thoughts? Probably chemicals, labs and large machines.
That’s no longer the case. Some time back, Amazon and two other companies started off a healthcare startup Haven. Technology is strongly helping the pharma industry. Read more about the 5 ways pharmaceutical industry is using technology:
The use of
artificial intelligence in sports isn’t a major surprise, given the advancement
in technology. Rise in computing power, availability of massive amount of data
and an increased willingness of stakeholders to leverage such tools are the
three principal reasons why the role of artificial intelligence in sports has
gained a lot more importance recently.
To some, innovation in farming in India has already arrived
in form of Artificial Intelligence (AI). To others, AI applications in the
agricultural industry in India appear superfluous and primitive, and likely
carry limited potential at best.
In India, modern technology in agriculture, often written as
Agtech or Agritech, represents hope. That’s because traditional farming
practices often fall sadly short when facing challenges like changing climate
conditions and global warming.
China has been putting Artificial Intelligence (AI) to use for a number of reasons, like using AI for a social credit score. However, a Chinese company, Squirrel AI learning, is taking AI into a different sphere: education.

Ask any expert about where Europe stands in the race to dominate Artificial Intelligence (AI) globally. Chances are, they’ll tell you the real competition is between China and the US; Europe isn’t even close to winning the bronze medal, as Kai-fu Lee said in an interview.
Lee isn’t alone. Many observers and experts, both inside Europe and beyond, believe Europe has missed the AI bus. There’s nothing to suggest Europe is a serious contender for the winner’s throne in AI.
