This week, we highlight how Lityx works with agency partners to allow them to offer advanced analytics to their clients. We share best practices of data governance in multi-cloud environments and explore the ways artificial intelligence (AI) will transform marketing in 2020. We learn how machine learning (ML) is being used to estimate the risk of cardiovascular death. And finally, we examine how AI is being used within the retail space.

AI is hoping to change the game of customer data, with newfound concepts of ML to anticipate the next move to enhance a customer’s journey–and positively impact your organization’s bottom line. This is done by fostering relevant and compelling interactions with customers, boosting ROI, and impacting revenue. In fact, brands who have recently adopted AI for marketing strategy, predict a 37 percent reduction in costs along with a 39 percent increase in revenue on average by the end of 2020 alone. 


Using Machine Learning to Estimate Risk of Cardiovascular Death

by Rachel Gordon, contributing writer for

A team from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) came up with a new system for better-predicting health outcomes: an ML model called “RiskCardio” that can estimate, from the electrical activity of their heart, a patient’s risk of cardiovascular death. Using just the first 15 minutes of a patient’s raw electrocardiogram (ECG) signal, the tool produces a score that places patients into different risk categories. Learn more about how it works and how it was developed.

Unsurprisingly, the study also found that AI is still undeveloped within this space, with only one percent of AI projects reaching full-scale deployment. View the full infographic and findings.
