The last time I felt so much power in my hands was when I was driving the Maserati Quattroporte. A beast on the road with the sound to boot. The CLS however is plain sexy, aggressive and not too loud. Put simply it’s the executives dream car. This demon on wheels has a 210kW six-cylinder diesel engine which makes the sedan sprint from zero to 100km/h in a swift 5.7 seconds. Though I didn’t quite get to those stats I must say I have no doubts about that aspect.
Is artificial intelligence reinventing insurance? This was the question posed by Bill Hoggarth, national sales manager, Digital Business Solutions at high performing and secure ICT solutions provider, Datacentrix. He was speaking at the recent Robotics, Drones and AI in Insurance Conference, held in Rosebank, Johannesburg. In answer to the question, Hoggarth clarified that no, he did not believe artificial intelligence (AI) was changing the nature of insurance–at least, not on its own. “My view is that AI is not reinventing insurance, but that it is part of the mix of technologies that is causing a shift in insurance today,” he said.

It is a sign of the times that this is getting the attention of the World Economic Forum and we really need to sit up and take notice.

Mine Closures in South Africa
The world is going through a relatively radical shift, which has put special emphasis on the concept of Sustainable Development across multiple industries. This has significantly affected the way we do business and the legislations we are governed by, requiring us to change our attitudes. Mining can be viewed as diametrically opposed to the tenet of sustainable development, however, it’s no exception to this new reality which is why mine closures and mine rehabilitations need to be conducted well.

User privacy in a technological age
Arguably the most pervasive technology conspiracy is that your smartphone is listening to your private conversations. We have all felt some discomfort with the types of advertisements that pop up on our phones. Have you ever had a conversation or searched for a certain product on your browser, only to start seeing ads that correspond exactly with that conversation or browser search? Do you ever get the distinct impression that your phone is tailoring pop-up and SMS ads for you and your specific interests, without you knowing how it got that information? And it is an “open secret” that your mobile device uses your personal information in order to tailor your user experience. But to what extent? And with whose permission?
