As we accelerate into a digital-first future, there are some jobs that can never be replaced.

Ambulance workers, firefighters, police officers; all these workers are needed in extraordinary times. And they are people, the same as the ones they’re saving. So who is helping them?
Artificial Intelligence is becoming a mainstream concept in the tech scene.
We are seeing it applied through at home assistants to allow us to operate our house through voice control, enabling our cars to drive themselves, or even to help diagnose diseases faster.
Digital transformation has brought important changes to public safety. Emerging technologies like Internet of Things (IoT) or big data proved that the sector can prosper in the age of disruption but what about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)? With more and more sectors leveraging AI on a mass scale, one thing is guaranteed: many of us are pondering the pros and cons of this technology. Can AI help to save more lives? How can it strengthen the emergency response field? Let’s find out.
