Skills Every Ambitious Tech Professional Will Need in 2020

#artificialintelligence

Tech industry employment is a seller's market firmly on the side of top talent, but competition for the best jobs remains fierce. Candidates cannot skate by on common skillsets and expect to secure the lucrative salaries, prestige, and perks for which the tech sector has become known. Companies today use advanced tools and tests to weed out the pretenders and identify the people who bring truly valuable skills to the table. Unfortunately, many tech workers -- even some of the best -- don't know exactly where they stand. To combat that knowledge gap, workers are turning to the same types of advanced tools that employers use on them.


Japanese companies hiking pay and holding classes in race to get tooled up on AI

The Japan Times

OSAKA – There's a sense of panic within Japan Inc. and the government -- the world's No. 3 economy, doesn't have enough experts in artificial intelligence, and it's time to do something about it. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in June unveiled a plan to train 250,000 people in AI skills annually by 2025, albeit one criticized as unrealistic due to a shortage of teachers. Tech heavyweights like Sony Corp. are hiking pay for the right hires and boosting recruitment of foreign engineers. But Daikin Industries Ltd., the world's biggest maker of air conditioners with a market value of $37 billion, is taking a more unusual route to AI expertise. At a disadvantage to bigger tech firms in attracting top talent, it has created an in-house program that takes new graduates and current employees -- almost all with no AI background -- and trains them up.

Detect discrimination with help of artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Washington D.C. [USA], July 14 (ANI): Researchers developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) tool for detecting unfair discrimination such as race or gender. Preventing unfair treatment of individuals on the basis of race, gender or ethnicity, for example, been a long-standing concern of civilized societies. However, detecting such discrimination resulting from decisions, whether by human decision-makers or automated AI systems, can be extremely challenging. This challenge is further exacerbated by the wide adoption of AI systems to automate decisions in many domains including policing, consumer finance, higher education, and business. "Artificial intelligence systems such as those involved in selecting candidates for a job or for admission to a university are trained on large amounts of data. But if these data are biased, they can affect the recommendations of AI systems," said Vasant Honavar, one of the researchers of the study presented at the meeting of The Web Conference.

"We analysed an adult income data set containing salary, demographic and employment-related information for close to 50,000 individuals. We found evidence of gender-based discrimination in salary. Specifically, we found that the odds of a woman having a salary greater than $50,000 per year is only one-third that for a man. This would suggest that employers should look for and correct, when appropriate, gender bias in salaries," said Honavar.
