artificial intelligence
1/5 Choose a reliable cloud service provider: Choosing a reputable cloud service provider is the first step toward securing data. The provider should offer secure data storage, encryption, and access controls.    (Microsoft )

2/5 Understand your security responsibilities: While customers maintain end-to-end responsibility of maintaining the environment on-premises, as they move to cloud services, more and more responsibilities are taken over by the cloud provider. However, maintaining and securing data, devices, and identities should always be the customer’s responsibility.  (Microsoft )

3/5 Use strong authentication: You should use strong authentication which can significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized access to data. However, the best defense is provided by passwordless technologies like facial recognition, fingerprints, or mobile apps. (Microsoft)

4/5 Implement encryption: Encryption is a critical component of cloud security. It involves encoding data in such a way that only authorized users can access it. Implementing encryption for data in transit and data at rest can help protect sensitive data from unauthorized access and data breaches. In the Microsoft Cloud, data is always encrypted at rest, in transit, and in use.  (Pexels)

5/5 Protect data wherever it lives or travels: The biggest problem faced by businesses today is discovering where their sensitive data is. Organizations need to be aware of the risk associated with this data and protect the data by applying things such as encryption, access restrictions, and visual markings.   (Pexels)

According to a TechCircle report, the chatbot can now answer queries in English, Hindi, and Hinglish, offering personalised responses and on-demand support. The move aims to empower customers with better self-service capabilities and enhance performance across domains, said Abonty Banerjee, Chief Digital Officer of Tata Capital.

Aurangabad police are utilising AI-based fast messaging software to improve their response time. The software allows officers at crime scenes to record voice messages, which are instantly relayed as phone calls to other personnel, eliminating the need to go through the control room. According to a PTI report, this technology significantly reduces response time, as concerned policemen receive the message within two minutes.

3. Wendy's latest fast-food chain to adopt AI amid staffing shortages

Wendy's is partnering with Google to bring AI to a drive-thru at one of its restaurants in Columbus, Ohio. If successful, the AI technology may expand to other drive-thrus across the country. Wendy's aims to create a faster and frictionless experience for customers while allowing employees to focus on food preparation and customer service. This move represents Wendy's commitment to staying at the forefront of fast-food innovation.

5. Workers fear uncertain future as AI anxiety grows

AI anxiety is rising among workers as they fear losing their jobs to the rapid advancements in artificial intelligence.
