Our world is changing at an ever-increasing pace, new technologies are impacting our lives, and the competition never sleeps. Consequently, a company’s research and development department plays a central role in ensuring the continued viability of the business. That’s where most development and innovation is rooted – be it in the development of innovative components for an aircraft or car manufacturer, the quest for new drugs, or in accelerating the approval process for a pharmaceutical company.
In any conversation about the use of chatbots, digital assistants, and similar tools for business, there is one aspect that should never be overlooked – the issue of data. In this blog post, find out what really counts when it comes to handling data in combination with AI.
The interaction between man and machine has not always been as straightforward as it is today. It wasn’t until the development of the graphical user interface (GUI) some 40 years ago that the general public was offered a simple way to communicate with computers. Of course, quite a lot has happened over the last four decades. A great many tools and processes have proven their worth, while others have become obsolete and been replaced by more innovative and intuitive solutions. Developments in the field of speech recognition, voice control, and artificial intelligence (AI) have made and continue to make it more convenient for users to communicate with end devices. These advances, coupled with the resulting proliferation of voice and chat wizards, have also led to standardized technological approaches that make it simpler for companies to use conversational applications – and easier for developers to create them.
Can you still remember how things were before we had access to digital aids like computers, tablets, and smartphones? As a matter of fact, this wasn’t even that long ago, yet life as we know it already seems virtually inconceivable without them. Today, we use these devices every day – intuitively and without being particularly tech-savvy – as if it were the most natural thing in the world.
Where do you stand on the issue of AI? Do you still associate artificial intelligence with science fiction? Or are robots and digital assistants beginning to take on a more pivotal role in your daily life? In this blog post, we seek to provide a brief overview of how developments in the field of artificial intelligence are impacting businesses and their commercial success.
A picture-perfect beginning to an exciting internship if ever there was one. If this piqued your curiosity and you’re interested in finding out what your first day at Mindbreeze might be like too, then just submit your application at:
... How can I help you?” These words probably seem oddly familiar – after all, they are popping up on websites with increasing frequency. They come from a chatbot, prompting the user to interact. Most of the time though, the brief conversation ends in frustration – the chatbot just doesn’t seem to understand the question. More like a hasslebot than a chatbot.
Artificial intelligence, in the form of computer systems and robots, is gaining ground in our lives at an ever increasing pace. And not just for performing simple tasks. Quite the contrary, in the future these new technologies will be able to handle tasks that are far more creative and innovative.
How companies can get the most out of expertise generated from existing data – from food and drug research and development to regulatory approval.
Imagine for a moment that you are going to an unfamiliar supermarket for the first time. If you are someone who isn’t visually impaired, you just have to look around to get your bearings and recognize the various objects and obstacles. People with visual impairment, however, have to make use of other senses to navigate their way through the new space. But what would happen if the objects in that space could communicate with them and serve as a kind of navigation aid?
Are you sensing increasing competitive pressure in your company because of the rise of digitalization in business?

However, most companies also see it as an opportunity for further growth and are gradually adapting their products and services. Yet, according to Bitkom, only 33 percent are pursuing a company-wide digital strategy.
