How big companies are going to tackle issues with help of AI, machine learning, and IoT (Internet of Things). Autonomous vehicles have huge potential to increase safety on the road and improve mobility. Robin Raskin, founder, Living in Digital Times, who explains says users get frustrated when each device requires an app of its own. She reveals that there are already more devices than humans on the planet.

1 AI Transforms Industries
Peggy Smedley says there is a lot happening in the world of AI (artificial intelligence) and machine learning. She’s a big fan of making technology available to more people, saying more companies are using resources and taking a look at sustainability. She is also looking forward to how big companies are going to tackle issues with help of AI, machine learning, and IoT (Internet of Things). The IoT has the potential to change the world and help humanity solve some of its most pressing challenges in the years to come. Machine learning, in particular, is going to transform industries such as healthcare. She points to an example of a boy who is leveraging AI to improve pancreatic cancer.

2 On the Road to Autonomous
Peggy chats with Heikki Laine, VP of product & strategy, Cognata, who says the company was founded two years ago, offering technology for autonomous vehicle testing. Autonomous vehicles have huge potential to increase safety on the road and improve mobility, but in order to keep that momentum and maintain public support, there is a lot that needs to go on beyond just technology, he explains. We need a structured approach that delivers technology and public confidence in parallel and we do see driverless cars on the road today in some limited situations, he says. The regulations need to be around how the vehicle delivers driving functions—that is one shift that is necessary. Another perspective is the jurisdiction issue. Right now, regulation is at a state level for testing, and that varies, he adds.

3 Future of Smart Devices
Peggy wraps up the show by talking with Robin Raskin, founder, Living in Digital Times, who explains says users get frustrated when each device requires an app of its own. She reveals that there are already more devices than humans on the planet. As an example, a thermostat can be set, or it can learn behaviors about you and can save you money and time. The new generation of IoT devices will have some analytics and machine learning behind it to predict what you want. She also explains that some great things have happened in the IoT space for seniors and accessibility.
