The one-day event brought senior IT executives together to discuss key technologies, including IoT, AI, blockchain, Big Data, DevOps, cloud computing, and cybersecurity.

The program included four workshops, Computational Personality Recognition (Shared Task) (WS-13-01), Social Computing for Workforce 2.0 (WS-13-02), Social Media Visualization 2 (WS-13-03), and When the City Meets the Citizen (WS-13-04). The Workshop on Computational Personality Recognition allowed participants to compare the results of their systems on a common benchmark. Unlike competitive shared tasks, the workshop did not focus just on performance, but rather on discovering which feature sets, resources, and learning techniques are useful in the extraction of personality from text. Organizers provided two gold-standard labeled data sets (released 1 February 2013): essays.zip, Participants were required to use at least one of the data sets provided by the organizers for their experiments; provide the files used for the experiments; and submit a short paper reporting all the information about features, resources, and techniques used in the experiments, and discussing results.

As artificial intelligence (AI) takes hold in the workplace, both employers and employees believe it will benefit the enterprise and help workers to be more productive. In fact, 93% of employees would be willing to take instructions from a robot, according to a new study Oracle conducted together with Future Workplace. That's not surprising, when you consider that employees encounter AI all the time as consumers. Most people today have no problem following the route our navigation app chooses or asking Siri or Alexa to put together a music playlist. Employees are ready for that kind of experience to appear in the workplace.
