Augmented Reality In The Operating Room: AR-Enabled Headsets For Intraoperative Use
Patient safety during and following surgery has improved in recent decades as a result of several factors. These include the widespread use of checklists, the implementation of quality improvement and team-based care models, and the introduction of measurement tools for monitoring performance and outcomes. More recently, the ability to leverage patient-level data has informed observational analyses, predictive modeling and artificial intelligence. The insights from these have elucidated, for example, which surgical approaches and techniques are most effective depending on patient characteristics and risk factors.
The Top 5 Metaverse Trends In 2023
Anyone who has been paying attention, however, will have realized that these visions often differ greatly. While Meta focuses on creating virtual reality environments, companies like Microsoft and Nvidia are developing metaverse environments for collaborating and working on digital projects. At the same time, those who believe the future of the internet is decentralized and built on blockchain are experimenting with non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to enable ownership of digital assets and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) designed to bring digital democracy to the virtual worlds we inhabit.
Here’s what regulators will want boards to know about cybersecurity
New United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rulemaking makes cyber risk reporting and business resilience planning a key component of effective board governance. Earlier this year, the SEC released a proposed cybersecurity disclosure rule to advance risk management and governance towards the treatment of cyber risk.
Four AI Trends To Watch
AI adoption is rapidly moving from an experiment to an essential part of business practices and planning. Across every industry, more use cases are being developed for AI to drive business efficiencies, optimize data, improve the customer experience and support business goals and initiatives. Companies looking to mature their AI programs should keep an eye out for these important conversations around the adoption of AI tools and technology.
Is it the lyrics? Is it the energy? Big data tries to predict what makes a song popular
Music is part of our lives in different ways. We listen to it on our commutes and it resounds through shopping centres. Some of us seek live music at concerts, festivals and shows or rely on music to set the tone and mood of our days.
Digital transformation: Why emotion matters
In this era of technology-fueled disruption, CIOs and IT leaders play a decisive role in make-or-break business transformations. Success depends not only on traditional factors such as which architecture they develop or the system they deploy but also on how they marshal the most timeless business resource: human talent.
Virtual reality could include smells with new gaming technology
STOCKHOLM, Sweden – A new gaming console could not only transform your eyes into virtual reality but also your nose.
Developers between Stockholm University and Malmö University said they have come up with an odor machine, or “olfactometer,” that makes it possible to smell in virtual reality environments.
The research was recently published in the International Journal of Human – Computer Studies.
A Big Threat for SMBs: Why Cybersecurity is Everyone’s Responsibility
It’s hard to go a week without learning about a new cyberattack. And while it is often the Fortune 500 companies that draw the most media attention (Marriott International, Morgan Stanley, T-Mobile, Target, and more), small businesses are under more frequent threat and have much more to lose…such as their entire business.
How to evolve artificial intelligence models alongside societal needs
As society becomes more open to and reliant on these tools, it is the responsibility of technology companies, especially those tasked with assisting people’s mental health, to build and maintain artificial intelligence and machine learning models that adapt alongside societal needs.
70% of tech infrastructure will be cloud-based within three years
Cloud is quickly becoming the corporate norm, and is being used by companies to drive dramatic improvements beyond cost and scalability, including increased innovation, faster time to market and insights, and enhanced cybersecurity.
This is according to a global cloud services study recently completed by The Hackett Group.
4 essential steps to IoT device development
There was a time when you could simply build a smart device and then sell it and forget it. Connectivity changed everything. Now, there are more options to develop, manage and sell an IoT device. Device developers are driving innovation, accelerating IoT evolution, delivering new use cases and continuously improving product quality. All of this taps into a major opportunity as the IoT market continues to rapidly grow.
Low code emerging as the core technology for digital transformation
Low code software has over the past years grown from an emerging into a core technology for any organisation embarking on digital transformation. This is according to new research by Mendix.
The study, which assessed the state of low code in five countries (France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and the United States), found that the technology’s rise has been so swift that low code is set to overtake traditional software coding in 2023.
EU announces hosts for Europe's largest quantum computers
The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) has selected six sites across the European Union (EU) to host and operate the first EuroHPC quantum computers: Czechia, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, and Poland.
These new systems will be available primarily for research to a wide range of European users, no matter where in Europe they are located, to the scientific communities, as well as to industry and the public sector. The selected proposals also ensure diversity in quantum technologies.
The present and future role of nurses in the new digital health era
In a recent review published in JMIR Nursing, researchers reviewed nursing practices and additional skills required to be mastered by nurses in the digital health revolution, with the use of digital technologies exponentially increasing during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
How Long Until Virtual Reality Reaches The Metaverse?
As we all already know, the metaverse has always had strong connections to virtual (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technology; they’re what’s essential for ‘immersivity’ to be pushed to its absolute limits.
Despite none of the leading metaverse platforms currently being centered around such tech (as Decentraland influencer Tangpoko pointed out when discussing the platform’s hardware necessities), it seems inevitable that the metaverse will continue to evolve not only through its interoperable and decentralized features, but also through experiences transitioning from 2D, third-person perspectives, to 3D, first-person ones.
