Watch this video (15 mins) to experience what I experienced. In an age of automation, algorithms and AI, many begin to seek the answer to the question, "What do I do when machines do everything?" It was very interesting to hear different speakers' points of view and witness how they occasionally disagreed with one another on stage.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is neither friend nor foe – It's both! This was the feedback received following a high level panel discussion held during the Science Forum South Africa (#SFSA2017) in Tshwane, were youth members from various African states exchanged their views and ideals as to how best they, business and government need to approach the digital age. "There is a paralysing fear that jobs will be taken away and humans will become redundant and lazy", said Barbara Glover of NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency. Glover added that these fears need to be allayed by understanding how best AI can unlock enhanced potential for humans to deploy their skills in new ways. Ama Duncan of Corporate Training Solutions in Ghana agreed.

Ranking Popular Deep Learning Libraries for Data Science

@machinelearnbot

Much of our curriculum is based on feedback from corporate and government partners about the technologies they are using and learning. In addition to their feedback we wanted to develop a data-driven approach for determining what we should be teaching in our data science corporate training and our free fellowship for masters and PhDs looking to enter data science careers in industry. Below is a ranking of 23 open-source deep learning libraries that are useful for Data Science, based on Github and Stack Overflow activity, as well as Google search results. The table shows standardized scores, where a value of 1 means one standard deviation above average (average score of 0). For example, Caffe is one standard deviation above average in Github activity, while deeplearning4j is close to average.


The Rise of the Machines

#artificialintelligence

Imagine a scenario where every employee in the world has access to personalized learning and that learning helps them build knowledge and skills they need throughout their careers. But now with machine learning a personalized learning experience is possible. In corporate education, machine learning can personalize an employee's learning experience by: Machine learning organizes and recommends learning content based on who you are and what it understands you are interested in. "I get a lot of feedback from people thinking that machine learning is about building better recommendation systems when in fact the ultimate goal is to understand why we are recommending a given piece of content," he said.

Lastly, corporate benefits of augmented reality training aren't dependent on the next generation of hardware. The new ARKit from Apple turns today's hardware into powerful AR training tools. Just as the smartphone was adopted by employees long before corporate training apps were created, millions of workers are engaging with augmented reality on their phones and tablets today. Properly configured, today's digital reality and machine learning tools have the power to improve safety, productivity, and reduce cost.

#artificialintelligence

Mondal describes the HR solution as a "classic machine learning/deep learning application." Krista Jones, managing director, Work and Learning, Venture Services at MaRS, says that "a significant number of startups in our Work and Learning group are using machine learning to innovate, whether it's talent management, analytics for decision making, assessing cultural fit, or corporate training programs." Another hot area for HR solution providers is people analytics, which allows employers to understand what skills are missing and understand internal risk. "Rather than setting goals for the year, you can respond to short-term goals and provide better incentives that align with that person's behaviour, based on sales data, product information, profitability and outcomes, as well as on what that representative is selling when and where, and market segments.
