Jack Butland eyeing England starting berth – ‘I don’t want to be here to just make up the numbers’

first_img Jack Butland 1 Jack Butland is determined to put pressure on incumbent England goalkeeper Joe Hart.The Stoke stopper made his Three Lions debut against Italy in August 2012 and is back in Roy Hodgson’s plans ahead of a Euro 2016 qualifying double-header against San Marino and Switzerland.Hart has collected 52 caps and his recent performances for Manchester City suggest he will get the nod against Switzerland next Tuesday, but there may be an opportunity for Butland before then.The 22-year-old is not prepared to be Hart’s understudy forever and will state his case for the gloves if he is picked against San Marino on Saturday evening.He told a press conference broadcast on Sky Sports News: “I feel in great form and am really happy to be back in the squad and I don’t want to be here to just make up the numbers.“Joe’s an incredible keeper who’s established himself for a long time now. He’s reached his 50 caps, which is brilliant, but for me I want to put pressure on him and hopefully get some game time.“I’m going to enjoy the week but ultimately put some pressure on and show people what I’m about.”last_img read more

RW Webinar: Rising demand for connectivity drives IoT advances in healthcare

first_imgWhat about HIPAA?A key component that must be integrated into any technology is data security that meets HIPAA requirements.Tom Rose, Director of Business Development, IoT Solutions, at KORE, believes the Internet of Things (IoT) brings smarter technology to bear on the unique challenges facing 21st Century healthcare. “IoT solutions support a customer-centric approach that cuts costs and scales according to need. Whether managing Help Desk inquiries or retrieving peripherals (such as insulin monitoring devices), solutions like KORE support smarter healthcare regardless of vertical.”The rising demand for connectivity cannot function effectively in the old siloed system. An integrated smart-tech approach to the problem brings healthcare into the homes of those who need it. Furthermore, any technology must guarantee data security that meets HIPAA requirements.“The future of healthcare is connected, integrated, and secure,” says Rose. “Whether putting tablets in the hands of patients, or improving health outcomes in the field, or tracking patient follow-through on post-operative instructions, IoT meets the increasing demand for connectivity.”To find out how to leverage IoT technology to power healthcare connectivity, join ReadWrite and KORE for a free webinar.During this free webinar, experts in the field of health IoT will discuss:The benefits of IoT in healthcareExample use cases demonstrating this innovationHow to implement connected solutions to power innovationHow data flow between devices, to the cloud, and to enterprise systems can be achievedSign up for this 60-minute webinar today and gain valuable insights into building an effective IoT strategy within healthcare:Our panelists:Tom Rose, Director of Business Development, IoT Solutions, KOREMarie Finnegan, Principal Portfolio Marketing Specialist, AllscriptsRachael Brownell, Webinar Manager, ReadWrite Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Tags:#HIPAA#Internet of Things#IoT#KORE#webianr Trevor Curwin Related Posts The U.S. Census projects that between 2012 and 2050 the aging population will almost double. Baby boomers account for the majority of this growth and present a unique challenge to healthcare providers. Unlike their predecessors, Boomers want to “age in place” and expect to manage acute and chronic illness, accessing their healthcare providers virtually as well as via traditional in-person appointments.By 2050, the population age 65 and older is projected to be 84 million, two times greater than 2012 estimates, says the U.S. CensusIt’s not just Boomers who expect to address illness from the comfort of their living rooms. Increasingly, consumer expectations of 24/7 access to care necessitate technological advances in healthcare. And monitoring and diagnostics technology are more than up to the challenge.Healthcare regulations are changing to accommodate treatment outside of the four walls of the hospital and clinic. With access to the right technology, data, and expertise, field service workers can provide care at a lower cost than their on-site colleagues.

Transformation or Threat: What Does AI Holds for Us?

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#AI#Understanding AI’s Impact China and America want the AI Prize Title: Who … Charu Mitra Dubey is a freelance writer specializing in marketing, startups, and entrepreneurship. She writes for several publications and at the same time work with startups on their content marketing strategies. She is the founder of CharuDubey.com, where she blogs about marketing and freelancing. Recently, Niti Aayog released a report called, “A Nation Strategy for Artificial Intelligence- #AIForAll.” The report was about the different pain points and challenges that exist on the implementation of AI in India. Moreover, it also included specific recommendations regarding the role of our governments and how the corporates are working on the development of AI. But the question remain the same — Does AI has only a bright side or something dark also exists. Well, in order to dig a little deeper and understand what the experts in the AI industry think, I spoke to some industry related people regarding the aspects of AI.AI will Still Need the Human TouchMany people think that AI is capable enough to do things on itself, it won’t need any human interferences, but this doesn’t seem to be true. Humans are the inventors of AI-based applications and will remain that even in the future.That’s what Nitin Babel, the co-founder of Niki.ai says. According to Babel, “AI can help in growing job opportunities. These opportunities will include creating, training and supervising the bots.” Babel continues, “We believe that AI-human augmentation is the future of work. While AI can perform mundane tasks at lightning speed, it only mimics human behavior by processing vast amounts of data. Humans, on the other hand, have high-level decision-making potential and can handle special and chaotic situations better. “So while we do believe that AI might take away jobs that are repetitive in nature (Example: Speech Recognition can reduce the number of human translators/transcribers needed), we’re positive that in due time it will create more jobs that will leverage AI assistance.“In the context of our team at Niki.ai, we eliminated the need of human chat agents, but there are certain jobs like that of a Bot Trainer, ML/NLP engineers and more which wouldn’t exist if we were not working on an AI-powered solution,” says Babel.Any Scope for Employment?Now the biggest question comes to the scenario. Is AI going to take the jobs from humans or is it going to create more job opportunities? Well, the issues might seem a bit difficult to answer, yet many assumptions are already floating around.Here is what Layak Singh, the founder of Artivatic.ai believes. According to Layak Singh, AI is going to occupy just lower-skilled jobs and will create a lot more job opportunities in the upcoming years. “Artificial Intelligence will take only low skilled or repetitive jobs, for example, BPO, Banking Agent, Manufacturing, Insurance Agent, Data Entry, Translation, etc. because these kind of jobs are repetitive and low skilled. The reason is that currently available systems or technologies are capable of understanding these processes and able to learn from previous actions, data effectively and so will be overtaken by systems. “This is called Machine learning where it learns from the past. AI only works if it is informed and programmed with data, actions, and has the processes available. In this case, it is required to re-skill yourself to a new category or skills job which is being created due to the AI era. “Like, data science, design, humanities, art, annotation, training software, data collection, algorithms writing, coding, interface development, hardware, electric design, survey design and more. This means that AI will also add more than 10 Million of jobs in the next three years while it will reduce 30-40 percent of jobs from the current,” believes Singh.Also, Read- A Quick Guide To Understanding AI’s Impact On The Future Of WorkTo Wrap UpThough there are plenty of rumors and assumptions related to AI today, yet anything specific can’t be predicted.
