Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to radically change the financial world. Companies spend billions of dollars on a technology that they hope will help them make smarter decisions, improve customer service, reduce fraud, and - they hope - save a lot of money.

There have been rumors for quite some time - now, according to Google, it is said to have been a success: For the first time, a quantum computer has completed a task that conventional computers would fail to do. Competitor IBM doubts that.

One thing is certain: no piecework can tolerate digital transformation. Despite rapid changes, the building blocks of connectivity, infrastructure and security must not neglect one. Find out what a holistic digitalization approach looks like.

Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed the technology that produces liquid fuels from sunlight and air. For the first time worldwide, they demonstrate the entire thermochemical process chain under real conditions. The new solar mini refinery is located on the roof of the machine laboratory at ETH Zurich.

While the United States currently has an edge in the race to develop artificial intelligence, China is rapidly gaining ground as Europe falls behind, according to a report released by the Center for Data Innovation. The study arrives amid a wide-ranging debate about which region has gained AI leadership, and the implications that hold for dominating cutting-edge technologies such as autonomous vehicles and other forms of automation. The winners of an AI arms race could hold a significant economic advantage in the decades to come.

Gartner's Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies 2019 focuses on the interaction of man and machine and the integration of artificial intelligence. US market researchers investigated more than 2,000 emerging technologies and derived 5 megatrends for the next ten years.

Who actually makes the rules of digitalization? Does artificial intelligence need ethics? And where does Switzerland stand in the race for technological leadership? These questions were the focus of the National Conference Digital Switzerland in Basel.

The International Federation of Robotics has published figures on the global robotics market. While installations are stagnating in China, Europe and the USA are stepping on the gas in automation. But Switzerland is catching up only slowly.

A doctor in India has performed a series of five percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures on patients who were 20 miles away from him. The feat was pulled off using a precision vascular robot developed by Corindus. The results of the surgeries, which were successful, were published in EClinicalMedicine, a spin-off of the medical journal The Lancet.

Are computers wiser than a team of medical specialists for cancer diagnoses? Doctors doubt this and use computers so far mostly only as supporting assistants. But will it stay that way?
