Drones in Human Health: Transforming Life Sciences in the Wilds of the Healthcare Jungle (Part 2)

In Part 1 of this series, I discussed Dian Fossey’s approach to gaining groundbreaking insights on primate behavior by directly observing and documenting the daily activities of gorillas in their natural environment. I described how applying and combining digital technologies such as drones and artificial intelligence (AI) could enable Fossey-style research at scale to improve […]

How Platforms Can Automate Business Workflows and Deliver New Value

At the same time that technology has improved our lives, it has also increased our expectations proportionately. In healthcare, for instance, patients who have historically been responsible for their medical reports and prescriptions now expect hospitals to have all their data available at the click of a button. Customers across industries today expect the businesses with […]

Drones in Animal Health: Transforming Life Sciences in the Wilds of the Healthcare Jungle (Part 1)

In the 20th century, the world gained industry-changing insights on primate behavior when researcher Dian Fossey went to the remote forests of Rwanda to study the daily activities of gorillas in their natural environment. How can we reimagine this model of observation and understanding of the animal world with the digital tools we now have […]

There’s Nothing Small About the Rise of Microservices

Sometimes, big things come in small packages, and that’s certainly the case when it comes to developing with microservices. Microservices architecture is a distinctive approach to software development that – according to IDC, at least – will account for 80% of application development on cloud platforms by the year 2021. In another recent survey, more […]

Transforming Pharmacovigilance with Intelligent Automation

In today’s world of empowered patients and increased attention to drug safety, the role of pharmacovigilance has never been more crucial. Healthcare organizations need to instill robust practices to detect, assess, report on and prevent adverse effects, both to ensure regulatory compliance and reduce risk for patients. Pharmacovigilance processes, however, are traditionally highly manual and […]

Quality Engineering: How Bots Predict and Prevent Failure of Massively Complex, Interconnected Systems

Whether it’s a blowout at an oil rig or the crash of an e-commerce site, the failure of big, complex systems is usually caused not by one catastrophic component failure or human error but a series of small breakdowns in equipment and processes that combine in unpredictable ways. The 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon […]

Automated Testing Bots: A Requirement for High-Quality Intelligent Devices

As consumers increasingly rely on intelligent devices – home security systems, connected cars, fitness bands, patient monitoring systems and more – businesses must ensure the robustness of their digital solutions, both on a standalone basis as well as how these solutions interact with other devices, apps and systems. Traditional testing methods aren’t up to these […]
