Watson Health 致力於利用人工智能應付重大醫療挑戰


筆者希望借助本文來介紹 Watson Health 的最近發展並消除一些誤解。如果您只是閱讀了近期的某些報導,那麼,您對 Watson Health 的看法,尤其是針對我們的 Watson 腫瘤解決方案 (Watson for Oncology) 產品,可能既不全面也不準確。

三年前,IBM 成立了 Watson Health,目標非常明確:找到人工智能與其他技術的最佳整合方式,協助醫療及健康領域的專業人士應付全球最嚴峻的醫療挑戰。在 Watson Health 所涉及的每一個領域, 我們的努力均已開始產生影響,例如:

  • 幫助糖尿病患者更好地控制血糖
  • 透過一系列腫瘤學產品為醫生提供訊息,協助其對癌症進行臨床診療
  • 支持重要的新發現,以加速研發治療肌萎縮性脊髓側索硬化症(Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, ALS)及帕金遜症(Parkinson)等疾病的新療法

IBM FlashSystem 9100: 數據驅動、多雲端環境企業的核心


IBM 認為,唯有數據驅動 (Data-driven)、多雲端 (Multi-cloud) 環境的企業,方能在現今競爭激烈的環境中脫穎而出。[1]

我們可以觀察到在最近推動企業數據儲存發展趨勢中,數據型業務需求扮演了關鍵要素:NVMe 非揮發性記憶體儲存裝置、人工智能、多雲端、容器應用程式等等。[2]

問題變成:「現今有沒有一種儲存解決方案,建基於成熟且經過實證的技術平台,只要單一平台就能應付當今儲存、數據中心與雲端趨勢;並提供同時支援傳統與現代數據中心的多元 AI 與雲端型軟件產品服務?」

您唯一的選擇:IBM FlashSystem 9100

自動售賣機 AI推廣更貼心

(文章於2017年9月16日在 iMoney刊登)


不論是大品牌或小商戶,要在香港開店,租金都是一大問題,因此近年有售賣各種貨品的自動售賣機出現,「其實我不太鍾意自動售賣機這個名字,因為立即聯想汽水機,其實我是想創造Automatic Retail(全自動零售)的新方向。」SmartRetail創辦人蘇俊豐在2009年創立公司,一改自動售賣機只賣汽水、零食的形象,變成賣健康零食,並配合機上屏幕做不同宣傳活動。貫徹健康的主題,最近他與IBM合作,採用對方開發的人工智能技術,售賣Fitbit產品。客人走近售賣機,機上的前置鏡頭能自動偵測其性別及年齡範圍,介紹相應的商品,客人可即時以信用卡、八達通等電子貨幣付款。配合不同商戶的市場推廣需要,屏幕可有相應的用途,例如客人可選擇觀看廣告以獲取折扣等。

The Next Generation of Infrastructure Services

Image 03_01

Danske Bank is testing the IBM Watson-based services platform that uses cognitive technologies to help IT service providers improve operations.

With rapidly changing business needs and accelerating business cycles, organizations need consistent and reliable service delivery across a “supply chain” of services from multiple vendors. There is no compromising choice for reliability. Both play an equally important role in a business’s success and they need the services they are using to continuously evolve.

For the IT services industry, it means a shift from system integration to services integration, and from a people-led and technology-assisted approach to one that is technology-led and people-assisted. In other words, most standard tasks and processes will be executed by increasingly autonomic systems that are data-driven, cognitive and automated.

This approach also means the evolution of automation and advanced analytics to cognitive delivery. Like many in the industry, we believe cognitive delivery is the next stage of the delivery lifecycle transformation.

Companies are already taking better advantage of the wealth of operational data and experience to gain insights that trigger automated actions for better business outcomes from IT or advise human experts to make better decisions.

Cognitive Computing Comes to the Help Desk


In many organizations, support for IT problems can be somewhat haphazard. The result of a user request often depends on the IT worker responding to it, who needs to ask the correct series of questions to get the answers they need. This may not be a straightforward process, however; what workers think they need to know may not actually be correct. A breakdown in support functions may even lead to the rise of shadow IT, as workers become frustrated and revert to using the tools they understand instead of those approved by the organization.

IBM Security: Perspective on the Recent “Petya” Cyberattacks


What is the Petya Ransomware campaign? A calculated ransomware campaign with a heavy footprint in Ukraine was detected on June 27, 2017. The source of the attack is currently unknown. To date, the attack has affected global organizations in the banking, pharmaceutical and transportation industries.

Most reports, and the ransom demand itself, refer to the activity as Petya, a well- known malware that has existed for quite some time, but at least one security company believes it is not a true Petya variant. IBM can confirm the ransomware tool is spreading via the National Security Agency (NSA) exploit ETERNALBLUE, similar to the WannaCry events last month.
