Your customers rely on your service, so when it goes down, every second is crucial. Natural disasters, security breaches, physical link failures, and even hardware/software crashes can cause widespread business disruption. In fact, as with most companies - regardless of industry - that rely heavily on telecom or mobile connectivity, a service outage can shutter many businesses.
While we have been in an era of rapid technological development for quite some time, we have seen significant maturation of the specific field of artificial intelligence over the last five years. As our access to larger data sets, more advanced hardware, and sophisticated algorithms progress, so too do our robotics capabilities. Defense and disaster response are key areas that will be transformed by artificial intelligence, and those who are able to adopt relevant technologies early - and optimize their use of them - will have major advantages.
Intro to GIS and UAVs
Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) are an indispensable tool for many modern industries. With applications in construction, real estate, agriculture, city planning, public health and safety, and more, the diverse capabilities of GIS systems enable them to meet a wide range of business needs. However, GIS relies heavily on the underlying data that supports it, and gathering that data can be burdensome.
