TOP INSIGHTS

While the United States currently has an edge in the race to develop artificial intelligence, China is rapidly gaining ground as Europe falls behind, according to a report released by the Center for Data Innovation. The study arrives amid a wide-ranging debate about which region has gained AI leadership, and the implications that hold for dominating cutting-edge technologies such as autonomous vehicles and other forms of automation. The winners of an AI arms race could hold a significant economic advantage in the decades to come.

Gartner's Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies 2019 focuses on the interaction of man and machine and the integration of artificial intelligence. US market researchers investigated more than 2,000 emerging technologies and derived 5 megatrends for the next ten years.

Who actually makes the rules of digitalization? Does artificial intelligence need ethics? And where does Switzerland stand in the race for technological leadership? These questions were the focus of the National Conference Digital Switzerland in Basel.

The International Federation of Robotics has published figures on the global robotics market. While installations are stagnating in China, Europe and the USA are stepping on the gas in automation. But Switzerland is catching up only slowly.

A doctor in India has performed a series of five percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures on patients who were 20 miles away from him. The feat was pulled off using a precision vascular robot developed by Corindus. The results of the surgeries, which were successful, were published in EClinicalMedicine, a spin-off of the medical journal The Lancet.

Are computers wiser than a team of medical specialists for cancer diagnoses? Doctors doubt this and use computers so far mostly only as supporting assistants. But will it stay that way?

Digitalization is changing markets and businesses to an unprecedented extent. By 2030, the pace of change will increase dramatically. But how can one profit from this and become a winner of this digital change? In his guest article, Jens-Uwe Meyer (expert on Innovation and Digitalization) shows how disruptive thinking succeeds and how it helps you, the team and the whole company.

In the past, a good idea was enough to be successful for years, but in the age of digitalization and globalization, the pressure to innovate is many times greater. Innovation cycles are becoming shorter, disruptions more profound and framework conditions more volatile. One answer is the Collaborative Company Building.

Since 2011, global indirect spending has risen by about 7 percent annually. Nevertheless, companies still do not pay the attention they deserve to indirect purchasing categories. In contrast, leading purchasing organizations are increasingly adopting a radically new understanding of the contribution that indirect procurement can make.

In a blog entry, Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced the "largest purchase of renewable energies in history" on the international action day of the Fridays for Future movement. The Internet group will purchase a package from a total of 1,600 megawatts in the USA, Chile and Europe. "Taken together, these transactions will increase our global portfolio of wind and solar energy contracts by more than 40 percent to 5,500 MW," writes Pichai. This corresponds to the capacity of one million solar roofs.
