Set your Chatbot up for Success with the Right Budget


I think it's safe to say that we all love to get a good deal – or at least feel like we are! – and save a little money whenever we can. I think we can also all agree that are certain times when going with the cheapest option or skimping on a line in the budget doesn't pay off in the end. You get what you pay for, right? A conversational AI solution is one of those projects that your organisation should be careful not to underfund. Without the proper level of financial support and ongoing funding, you will never achieve success with a conversational AI project.

Using People Analytics to Build an Equitable Workplace


People analytics, the application of scientific and statistical methods to behavioral data, traces its origins to Frederick Winslow Taylor's classic The Principles of Scientific Management in 1911, which sought to apply engineering methods to the management of people. But it wasn't until a century later -- after advances in computer power, statistical methods, and especially artificial intelligence (AI) -- that the field truly exploded in power, depth, and widespread application, especially, but not only, in Human Resources (HR) management. By automating the collection and analysis of large datasets, AI and other analytics tools offer the promise of improving every phase of the HR pipeline, from recruitment and compensation to promotion, training, and evaluation. Now, algorithms are being used to help managers measure productivity and make important decisions in hiring, compensation, promotion, and training opportunities -- all of which may be life-changing for employees. Firms are using this technology to identify and close pay gaps across gender, race, or other important demographic categories.

Artificial intelligence and other tech trends to follow in 2022


Google CEO Sundar Pichai said, "Artificial Intelligence is more profound than fire, electricity, or the internet." His words certainly make sense owing to AI's contributions to the world, climate change, space exploration, or developing cancer treatments. The way AI enables machines to make decisions faster with more accuracy than a human mind is truly extraordinary. It indicates the power of AI and how it can unlock unimaginable possibilities in life. With this backdrop in mind, here's a list of top tech trends that businesses must focus on and invest in: AI has been game-changing across various industries.

US defence chief orders military to better protect civilians

Al Jazeera

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has issued a directive ordering the United States military to do more to protect civilians from harm in drone attacks and other combat operations. In a two-page memo to top Pentagon civilian and military officials, Austin on Thursday ordered a comprehensive overhaul of the US Defense Department's posture towards protecting civilians in conflict zones. "The protection of innocent civilians in the conduct of our operations remains vital to the ultimate success of our operations and as a significant strategic and moral imperative," the memo reads. The defence secretary asked for an action plan from the Joint Chiefs of Staff to prevent harm to civilians and improve US responses when such incidents occur. That plan is due within 90 days.

GoLang – Consuming Oracle REST API from an Oracle Cloud Database)


Does anyone write code to access data in a database anymore, and by code I mean SQL? The answer to this question is'It Depends', just like everything in IT. Using REST APIs is very common for accessing processing data with a Database. From using an API to retrieve data, to using a slightly different API to insert data, and using other typical REST functions to perform your typical CRUD operations. Using REST APIs allows developers to focus on write efficient applications in a particular application, instead of having to swap between their programming language and SQL.

The danger of AI micro-targeting in the metaverse


Did you miss a session from the Future of Work Summit? If you ask most people to name the key technologies of the metaverse, they'll usually focus on the eyewear and graphics engines. If they're sophisticated, they'll also bring up 5G and blockchain. But those are the nuts and bolts of our immersive future. The technology that will pull the strings, creating and manipulating our experience, is AI.

Atlassian acquires Percept.AI – TechCrunch


Atlassian today announced that it has acquired Percept.AI, an AI company from Y Combinator's summer 2017 batch, that offers an automated virtual agent support solution -- a chatbot, basically -- based on a proprietary AI engine for natural language understanding. Atlassian plans to integrate this virtual agent technology into Jira Service Management, its tool for helping IT teams provide better service to employees and customers. Ahead of today's acquisition, Percept had raised a seed round for an undisclosed amount from the likes of Hike Ventures, Builders VC, Cherubic Ventures, Amino Captial, Tribe Capital and Y Combinator, according to Crunchbase. The two companies did not disclose the financial details of today's acquisition. There can be little doubt that Atlassian is investing heavily in Jira Service Management.

What is Geometric Deep Learning?


Follow my Twitter and join the Geometric Deep Learning subreddit for latest updates in the space. The vast majority of deep learning is performed on Euclidean data. This includes datatypes in the 1-dimensional and 2-dimensional domain. But we don't exist in a 1D or 2D world. All that we can observe exists in 3D, and our data should reflect that.

What Should Kids Study For A Robotic And AI Future?


My wife, who rounds in the hospital and teaches, often tells me that if more people really understood what the medical professionals see and what they must do, this just might alter their perspective on how they lead their lives. With real experience often comes better understanding. And yet, when you can't fully experience something, perhaps the best alternative is to learn from someone who is able to clearly and compellingly teach. Arriving Today, by distinguished science writer and Wall Street Journal technology columnist Christopher Mims, is one of those books that is able to tell the incredible story of what happens when you order a new USB charger, from the point of origin to the point of delivery, on that UPS truck. Imagine watching a movie where you follow this USB, and as you journey to each new location Christopher teaches you chapter by chapter about the history of technology, the origins of the ideas behind what he sees, the numbers that back them all up, and the stories of the people who are impacted greatly by all of this.
