In the age of disruption, businesses and their leaders will rise or fall based on their ability to spot and creatively respond to rapid technological change. Some companies notice an emerging technology and take a "wait and see" attitude. Others see a new technology and take action. They begin experimenting, making small bets, and learning.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 18, 2018 -- Once feared as making the role of the recruiter impersonal and robotic, Artificial Intelligence (AI) today gives recruiters the information they need to source and hire higher-quality professionals. Those are the findings of a global Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY) survey of nearly 800 talent acquisition professionals. Nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of respondents say AI has changed the way recruiting is done in their organization, with 69 percent saying using AI as a sourcing tool garners higher-quality candidates. When asked to compare the quality of candidates today to 5 years ago, when AI was still in its infancy, 59 percent said candidates are more qualified today, and 51 percent said roles are filled in a more timely manner. According to the survey, talent acquisition professionals are welcoming AI as a tool.

I'm expanding my horizons from games to tech next week as I head off to Las Vegas for CES 2018, the big tech trade show that begins for the media on Sunday. I hope to find some interesting stories, like the one that Arnold Donald, the CEO of the world's largest cruise company, told last year as Carnival Cruises launched its Ocean Medallion wearable. That was interesting because it was an example of how technology was infiltrating a non-tech business.
To solve the problems, from 1991 to 1993, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and Daewoo jointly conducted the Daewoo Shipbuilding Scheduling (das) Project. To integrate the scheduling expert systems for shipbuilding, we used a hierarchical scheduling architecture. To automate the dynamic spatial layout of objects in various areas of the shipyard, we developed spatial scheduling expert systems. For reliable estimation of person-hour requirements, we implemented the neural network-based person-hour estimator. In addition, we developed the paneledblock assembly shop scheduler and the longrange production planner.
Wave forecasting can reduce risk and increase cost savings for the marine industry, but IBM's new tech can be applied to a variety of industries and companies. Supply chains must always factor known and unknown risk into their supply chain plans. Many companies even create their own calendars outlining events such as the Chinese New Year and contract negotiating season to ensure they're shipping at the right time to save money. Weather is the true unknown, however, as evidenced by the fact that extreme weather has caused 29% more disruptions since 2012. To be truly prepared includes assessing suppliers' level of risk, especially those located along the usual paths of hurricanes, tornadoes or other major natural disasters.
Hurtigruten cruise line introduces a new way to see what lurks beneath the world's most remote polar waters. On its expedition ships, the company is introducing an underwater drone that streams real-time video of orcas, leopard sharks, penguins and other creatures beneath the water. Or passengers can wear masks with digital displays that may make them feel like they're on a dive deep in the ocean Hurtigruten plans to start by outfitting two hybrid-powered ships -- the Roald Amundsen and the Fridtjof Nansen -- with the new underwater drone. "[W]ith underwater drones on our ships we can take our guests to areas less explored than the surface of Mars," company Chief Executive Daniel Skjeldam said in a statement.
