  • Enterprises are deploying AI more broadly
  • This is bringing in a positive change in their working
  • Companies are investing huge amount in AI technology

Enterprises are moving beyond the experimentation phase with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and are now deploying AI technologies more broadly, said an Infosys survey on Tuesday.

There is a fundamental shift in how enterprises operate as AI takes hold, according to the “Leadership in the Age of AI” survey.

“AI, as the research shows, is becoming core to business strategy, and is compelling business leaders to alter the way they hire, train and inspire teams, and the way they compete and foster innovation. Industry disruption from AI is no longer imminent, it is here,” Mohit Joshi, President, Infosys, said in a statement.

“The organisations that embrace AI with a clearly-defined strategy and use AI to amplify their workforce rather than replace it, will take the lead, and those that don’t will fall behind or find themselves irrelevant,” Joshi added.

Seventy three per cent respondents strongly agreed that their AI deployments have already transformed the way they do business, and 90 per cent C-level executives reported measurable benefits from AI within their organisation.

Organisations are taking steps to prepare employees and business leaders for the future of work, with 53 per cent respondents indicating that their organisation has increased training in the job functions most affected by AI deployments.

More than 1,000 business and IT leaders with decision-making power over AI solutions or purchases at big organisations across seven countries were included in the survey. IANS

US researchers used an artificial intelligence algorithm to identify a powerful new antibiotic compound, which could kill many of the world’s most problematic disease-causing bacteria in lab tests.

The study published on Thursday in the journal Cell showed that it could kill some strains that are resistant to all known antibiotics and also clear infections in two different mouse models, the Xinhua news agency reported.

Scientists with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) created a machine-learning computer model looking for chemical features that make molecules effective at killing E. coli.

They trained the model on about 2,500 molecules, including about 1,700 FDA-approved drugs and a set of 800 natural products with diverse structures and a wide range of bioactivities.

After training, the algorithm was tested on a library of about 6,000 compounds, finally helping identify a molecule that was predicted to have strong antibacterial activity and had a chemical structure different from any existing antibiotics.

The molecule called halicin, previously investigated as possible diabetes drug, was tested against dozens of bacterial strains isolated from patients and grown in lab dishes. It was able to kill many that are resistant to treatment like Mycobacterium tuberculosis, according to the study.

In a mice test, halicin-containing ointment completely cleared the infections of A. baumannii, which is resistant to all known antibiotics, within 24 hours.

In another study, the researchers found that E. coli did not develop any resistance to halicin during a 30-day treatment period.
