IBM Launches an AI-Driven Civil Infrastructure Initiative

IBM’s tool will allow users to streamline maintenance decisions and move towards data-driven insights.

Aging infrastructure is an expensive problem, but ignoring it costs cities heavily. IBM is taking on the issue of preserving civil infrastructure by using artificial intelligence (AI) and big data to prolong the life of highways, bridges, and other civil structures.

Trillions of dollars remained unfunded in civil infrastructure repairs, an alarming number considering how vital infrastructure is to industry. Infrastructure requires proper maintenance or citizens will experience disruptions. IBM is hoping to transform the way infrastructure decisions happen, providing AI-based, data-driven analysis for better results.

The Impact Of IBM’s Move To Split On Its AI Initiatives

In one of the biggest news of the year, IBM recently announced that it is splitting its IT services business into a new company, temporarily named NewCo. The move headed by its CEO, Arvind Krishna, will lead to diversification of the world’s first big computing firm away from its legacy businesses to focus on high-margin cloud computing and AI business. The company believes that with this move, both the companies will be on an improved growth trajectory with more remarkable ability to partner and capture new opportunities.

With this, IBM becomes the big first computing firm to split up from its legacy business to focus on the new tech. The brand new IBM will accelerate and focus on the $1 trillion hybrid-cloud opportunity, whereas the NewCo. will focus on its services business with a revenue of around $19 billion. The NewCo will provide technical support to 4,600 clients in 115 countries, and is expected to record an expense of nearly $5 billion to be incurred in the separation and operational changes.

Krishna believes that this move will help the company revive growth after almost a decade of shrinking revenue, with a strategic focus on each of the businesses. “Now is the right time to create two market-leading companies focused on what they do best”, the company stated.

Amsterdam And Helsinki Launch Open AI Registers

Amsterdam and Helsinki both launched an Open AI Register at the Next Generation Internet Summit. According to sources, these two cities are the first in the world that are aiming to be open and transparent about the use of algorithms and AI in the cities.

Currently, in the beta version, Algorithm Register is an overview of the artificial intelligence systems and algorithms used by the City of Amsterdam. The register is an effort to show where the cities are currently making use of AI and how the algorithms work.

Jan Vapaavuori, Mayor of Helsinki stated, “Helsinki aims to be the city in the world that best capitalises on digitalisation. Digitalisation is strongly associated with the utilisation of artificial intelligence. With the help of artificial intelligence, we can give people in the city better services available anywhere and at any time. In the front rank with the City of Amsterdam, we are proud to tell everyone openly what we use Artificial Intelligence for.”
