  • 3D geolocation is about to transform gaming, service delivery, and more May 26 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    VentureBeat x NextNav
    The location technology commonly used in mobile apps and games has been restricted to a flat, 2D world – until now. New geolocation technologies enable accurate vertical location at scale for the first time – and so accurately that it can pinpoint what floor you’re on in a skyscraper.

    The technology is unlocking a tremendous number of opportunities. Food delivery services like UberEats and DoorDash can improve user experience with pinpoint-accurate delivery. Car services can find your exact location in an airport. And the technology can unlock urban areas for AR games by making vertical space accessible – i.e. fixing the position of a player in vertical environments, such as skyscrapers, apartment buildings, or malls.

    To learn more about the transformative impact of 3D location on mobile apps, gaming, AR, and more join the discussion with the industry leaders who are driving the next generation of location technology in this VB Live event!

    Attendess will learn:
    • How 3D geolocation is disrupting the world of location technology, delivering new user experiences and improved operational efficiency
    • How leaders in the mobile app, gaming, and AR space will use vertical location in the next generation of location-based services
    • How the vertical dimension will impact the wider location ecosystem, including mapping, visualizations, and UI/UX

    Speakers:
    - Timoni West, Vice President of Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Reality Tools, Unity Technologies

  • The promise of open clouds: Faster innovation, faster delivery Recorded: Apr 28 2021 63 mins
    VentureBeat x Supermicro and Intel®
    As cloud computing continues to accelerate worldwide, organizations are now deciding which model best serves their needs. Yes, the major public clouds can offer almost unlimited scalability, but users are limited to the hardware and software choices the cloud provider has made.

    This is where open clouds come in. Consisting of "open" components, these are tailored to an enterprise's specific needs in compute, storage, networking, and the software stack. A wide range of "instances" can be installed in an open data center, whether made available to internal or external customers, tailored to the needs of the enterprise.

    As a result, open clouds can reduce latencies to client device – improving customer and device (IoT) interactions. The latest innovations from the edge to the data center can be quickly brought on-line, and tuned to the exact requirements needed to maintain SLAs. But in making the best decision, you need to ensure three main components for success: the right hardware (the primary instruction set and binary compatibility); the best software stack; and the appropriate network choice.

    Join this VB Live event to learn more about the benefits of open clouds – and what’s needed to produce the best outcome.

    Attendees will learn:

    • Why an eco-system based on open standards can reduce costs and increase innovation
    • How to evaluate workloads
    • How a cloud based on open standards can easily be constructed
    • How open standards apply to hardware and software choices

    - Keith Tanski, Chief Technology Officer, Optum

  • In pursuit of parity: A guide to the responsible use of AI in health care Recorded: Mar 31 2021 61 mins
    VentureBeat x Optum
    Leaders from all sectors of health care are increasingly integrating artificial intelligence (AI) into their organizations to achieve strategic goals, and confidence in the technology's promise is growing. A 2020 Optum survey on AI in health care found that 59% of respondents expect a full return on their AI investments in under three years, nearly double the 31% who answered similarly in 2018.

    Health care’s Quadruple Aim is to simultaneously improve health outcomes, enhance and simplify the experiences of both patients and providers, and reduce overall costs — and AI is seen as an integral tool to help achieve it. The risk is that predictive models may unintentionally perpetuate harmful racial and gender biases that directly impact a patient's health or access to care. In order to overcome these challenges, health care organizations need to acknowledge their existence — and take proactive steps to promote equity by examining both the data these models interpret and how the models are being applied.

    In this VB Live event, you'll learn more about how AI can help health care experts do their jobs more efficiently and effectively, and how stakeholders throughout health care can use AI responsibly, ethically, and equitably. Plus, you'll get an in-depth perspective on the strengths and limitations of data, AI methodology, the application of AI results, and more.

    You'll learn:
    - What it means to use advanced analytics "responsibly"
    - Why responsible use is so important in health care as compared to other fields
    - The steps that researchers and organizations are taking today to ensure AI is used responsibly
    - What the AI-enabled health system of the future looks like and its advantages for consumers, organizations, and clinicians

    Speakers:

  • Evolve: Ensuring Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in AI (VB Live) Recorded: Dec 8 2020 77 mins
    VentureBeat
    Evolve is a 90-minute event focused on best practices on how to ensure racial fairness and equity while building products, teams, and companies with AI, ML, and large data.

    Evolve bridges two of the most significant trends in the corporate world in 2020.

    First, the events of the past few months have reawakened the world to continued racial injustice. The corporate sector, in particular the technology industry, has historically been perceived as slow in efforts to promote equality and affirmative action in the workforce. But recent events have spurred them into action, and there are signs that real change could come about.

    At the same time, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are arguably the most powerful enterprise technologies today, and hundreds of large companies are pushing AI/ML product development to get an edge on their competitors. But they are doing so at a time when many, if not most, of the decision-makers do not reflect the diversity of the general population. And many companies have been careless in making sure their data used in AI decision-making is not reflecting prejudice and bias that can perpetuate inequality for years to come.

  • COVID and mental health: What employers and HR need to know Recorded: Nov 17 2020 61 mins
    VentureBeat x TriNet
    As the COVID pandemic continues to evolve, employees are struggling under the weight of the unknown. From the stress of working from home or returning to an office environment when regulations are in flux, to the intense pressure on employees with school-age children who are trying to juggle work and impromptu teaching, workers are wrestling with hard choices and difficult issues. The scale of employee mental health support that HR and business leaders must provide is unprecedented.

    In this webinar presented by TriNet and FEI, the Workforce Resilience Experts, you'll learn about the impact that COVID is having on employees' mental health and productivity — and, in turn, how employees’ mental health impacts the health of a company. You’ll learn about the internal strategies organizations need now to support employees, from adapting communication policies, to creating buddy systems for co-workers, flexible work schedules, and more.

    Registration is free!

    You'll learn:

    - What employers need to know about COVID’s impact on the mental health of their employees
    - How the mental strain of COVID may negatively impact the health of a company and employee productivity
    - Best steps and practices companies are taking to help their employees get through this difficult time

    - Christy Yaccarino, Executive Director, Benefit Strategy and Wellness, TriNet
