The Digital HUB is dedicated to the digital transformation of industries, providing curated insights in practical applications of AI and Machine Learning, Crypto Assets and Blockchain. I hope that you enjoy the letter and please provide feedback and feel free to connect with me here.

The Takeaway: Going by the headlines and robust venture funding, despite the downturn, we are seeing the breakout for AI and data science technologies. Generative AI techniques are creating artwork, essays, research reports, images, and videos. As an AI technology and industry specialist for more than a decade, I’d say, we are just getting started. Why? Although AI technologies have matured, deployment in industries – the digital transformation – at scale is the main challenge. In a recent article, I offer a formula for digital transformation consisting of three main pillars: 1) ability to execute, 2) digital DNA capabilities, and 3) skills development program. These pillars are key for successful AI deployment and ROI. In this issue, we focus on new AI trends with our expert panel, so read on…

Quantum Physics: From Philosophy to Quantum Computing

Article by Mehrzad Mahdavi. AI Image by DALL-E

The 2022 Nobel Prize for Physics – awarded to three experimental physicists: Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger – evoked a lot of thoughts and emotions.  As a grad student, I studied quantum mechanics – the laws for particle interactions at the nuclear level.  Now, I marvel at the philosophy of what rules the sub-atomic world VS the “real” world.   Well, in the form of quantum computing, the two are coming together by harnessing the “entanglement” theory of quantum mechanics!  Implications are huge – massive AI based applications in drug discovery to future of energy to general artificial intelligence to name a few.  Stay tuned, I will publish some more in this area...
