A new multi-year contract to use Vizru's no-code platform enables ZF to implement a series of artificial intelligence-driven systems for next-gen process automation.

Vizru says that ZF Group has signed a multi-year contract to enable a digital transformation across ZF’s global enterprise. ZF will use Vizru’s no-code Autonomous Application Development and Digital Decisioning Platform to implement a series of artificial intelligence (AI) driven systems for next-gen process automation. ZF selected Vizru for this ambitious multi-year initiative to help them drastically cut operational costs through AI-bot- driven automation and transform its customer experience without ripping and replacing any existing systems.
 
Vizru’s no-code application development platform will enable ZF to assemble AI-bots over existing systems. Each bot is a self-sufficient environment consisting of an omni-channel communication layer, AI Workflows and a Data Access Hub which delivers end-to-end process automation, compliance, and an immersive customer experience. Vizru bots can seamlessly communicate over multiple channels including chat, web, SMS, email, etc., which was one of the essential criteria for the project.
 
“At the end of this initiative, we expect to put in place a framework to quickly deploy a network of bots and various technologies that can intelligently communicate with each other, hand off tasks, collectively resolve complex problems, and evolve through continuous feedback loop,” said Andreas Bauer, IT Manager at ZF. “Using’s Vizru no-code Digital Decisioning Platform, we will develop AI-driven business applications that can think, act and complete processes, autonomously without human intervention.”
 
“Unlike traditional robotic process automation vendors that simply screen the recording, Vizru offers a no-code, all run time environment that allows business professionals to expose and synchronize data to create extensible apps and achieve faster time to value while eliminating the need for IT involvement,” said Ramesh Mahalingam, CEO of Vizru. “We are thrilled to be selected by ZF and to provide them with a self-service, autonomous digital framework consisting of bots-driven intelligent infrastructure which will result in a 35-50 percent reduction of manual tasks across key processes over the next three years.”



A terrifying look into where AI is going and how the singularity is near

Ray Kurzweil, the prize-winning author, and scientist says that artificial circuits replicating themselves at a molecular level will merge with the biological circuits that constitute our nervous systems, giving rise an "enhanced" human super-intelligence. Once this starts happening, what we now call the Internet will in effect become telepathic, giving these enhanced humans instantaneous access to all available knowledge and information as they fashion their brave new world.

475 Tax Deductions for Businesses and Self-Employed Individuals

Are you paying more taxes than you have to as a developer or freelancer? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, “If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it.
