My Writing Samples

Lyft, IBM, & Others Discuss the Convergence of AI and Marketing

What do artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other innovations have in store for the future of marketing? That was a key question addressed by a panel that included the chief marketing officers from Lyft, IBM Watson, and CVS Health.


Car Wars: Mary Barra Talks GM’s Future, Nvidia Takes the Wheel at CES

Make way for autonomous cars on the highways ahead. That was a common theme from the auto industry at the CES technology trade show this week in Las Vegas. In years prior, carmakers tried almost too hard at CES to make their vehicles seem more hip by talking up connectivity and putting apps in cars as the so-called “ultimate mobile device.”


Taking a Peek Inside Facebook New York and Its Virtual Reality Future

Is there more to Facebook than status updates and likes? The short answer is yes, and not just because of acquisitions such as Oculus VR (though that does factor into its plans).


Tailored Care: The Future of Cancer Treatment

At a time when incidents of cancer seem to be on the rise, some solace and hope can be found in the technology and treatment efforts available from New Jersey hospitals. Institutions such as Cooper University Health Care, Hackensack Meridian Health, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, RWJBarnabas Health, Virtua Health System, and CentraState Healthcare System have been adopting new methods to tackle this constantly-changing disease. With a focused approach, these hospital systems aim to deliver efficient care that may offer patients better outcomes and improved quality of life.
