The perfect match: artificial intelligence and the internet of things

AI in healthcare: friend or foe?

There’s one industry that artificial intelligence can greatly enhance, however, it is also the one that can suffer the most from any misuse of the technology. It’s been a while since researchers have started to weigh the pros and cons of using AI in healthcare and the case is still controversial.

On the one hand, the introduction of robots and artificial intelligence in the medical system can speed up the processes, free the doctors of dull and repetitive duties so they can focus their entire attention on patients and, most importantly, can help people stay healthy. Read in full

How AI can reinvent retail

Artificial intelligence adoption across industries is skyrocketing.

These findings prove that artificial intelligence is currently the most used and, sadly, the most misused concept in technology. Read in full

Adding automatic tests to an ASP.NET MVC application (part 1)

I. Introduction

Soon after software development has emerged, it became obvious that any application beyond a homework needs testing. Testing evolved naturally along with frameworks, both on client side and server side and now we are talking about Test-driven development and Behavior-driven development(e.g. Cucumber). Of course, most efficient tests are automatic ones.

A couple of years ago, we had the opportunity to start a project from scratch (MDW Automatic Testing along with Claudiu) and I said to my self: why not develop a small framework to easily add automatic tests?
