If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
As we begin 2020 with new excitement and vigor, it's also the time to plan ahead and look at what the year has in store for us for corporate Learning and Development (L&D). With workplace learning trends embracing technology on a larger scale, one thing we can say for certain is that emerging technologies are transforming the world of work, and businesses need to rethink their approach toward L&D and employee training. One of the key shifts observed in 2019 and going into 2020 is learning in-the-flow of work, which only makes more and more sense as we live our connected lives in this connected world. Meanwhile, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is reshaping how organizations do business, engage with clients and customers, and manage their operations. As a result, an increasing number of organizations are now depending on emerging technologies to gain the desired competitive advantage.
In December 2019, I began work on my eBook and this article on eLearning trends in 2020. This is the ninth in a series of articles and eBooks on eLearning trends since 2017. Here is my list of eLearning trends in 2020. I believe all of these will be an integral part of workplace learning in the near future. Given the large number of trends, I have logically grouped them into 3 sections.
There is no shortage of training content for employees. However, quick access to the right information is the challenge. Traditionally, the L&D departments spend significant time on instructor-led training and aggregating and buying third-party training content. Other learning avenues, like on-the-job training, personalized training, micro-learning, and data or event-driven training programs are equally important. Employees today learn from content spread across internal and external systems including intranets, MooC platforms, LMS, social media platforms, external training content providers, document management systems, collaboration platforms, and even forums, Q&A portals, email and messenger/ chat platforms.
This week I'm in conversation with Henrietta Palmer, a strategic L and D professional and learning solutions manager at toury, a leading and innovative travel brand in the UK and an industry defined by the digital age and which companies have adapted to it. Henrietta is also passionate about the constraints corporate learning and development specialists is exist within. Sophie Bailey: 18:13 Unlike the wild budget utopia our state system education folk might think of when we think about learning and the corporate world. She also talks about going beyond Google searches and getting into the world of learning at work. Sophie Bailey: 18:57 Yeah, absolutely delighted to have Henrietta Palmer, a strategic L and D professional and learning solutions manager on the line, so welcome Henrietta. Hello, so for those who don't know Tui, formerly Thompson, is the UK is leading travel brand with 6 million holiday makers in the UK alone and with many more internationally and in the UK too. He has around 12 and a half thousand employees ranging from travel agents to cabin crew engineers and back office staff. Henrietta is responsible for ensuring Tui has the innovative development opportunities to drive the success of the Tui business. She has won numerous awards on behalf of her team, including the bronze awards in both learning technologies, team of the year and best learning technologies projects and in Henrietta's his own words. I'm a creative problem solver with 20 years experience in the field of digital learning. No year is the same.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to transform our lives from the way we work to the way we live. It has already found its way into many domains and will continue to permeate every aspect of life, society, and work. Microsoft believes every business will rely on AI in five years. If you ask employees, however, they are concerned about job security. In a recent Docebo report, three in five people expressed concerns that AI technology will impact how they perform their job or daily tasks in the future.
CHIBA – Corporate Japan's growing need to rely on new technologies to cope with a shrinking workforce was on show at the recently held CEATEC technology exhibition in the city of Chiba, with service industry companies turning out in greater numbers this year. As more and more skilled workers reach retirement across various industries in rapidly graying Japan, businesses are turning to new technologies to hand down field experience and knowledge to younger workers. East Nippon Expressway Co., operator of expressways and toll roads in Japan, is one of the companies adopting "mixed reality" technology as it seeks to boost training of inspection and maintenance personnel. "We are increasingly required by the government to conduct checks on roads but our skilled workers are aging and cannot work at their fullest anymore. So we needed to rely on high tech to share and pass on their know-how to the younger employees," said Masaki Ishiguro, official in charge of maintenance at the firm, also known as Nexco East.

Interest in data science has risen remarkably in the last five years. And while there are many programming languages suited for data science and machine learning, Python is the most popular. Scikit-Learn is a Python module for machine learning built on top of SciPy and NumPy. David Cournapeau started it as a Google Summer of Code project.
In the age of blockchains, 3D printing, CRISPR-Cas9 -- and the inevitable new technologies that are yet to emerge -- today's workforce is struggling to keep up with the latest developments. For large companies and executives, finding resources for workers to learn from that are current, reputable, and unbiased can be challenging. To address this unmet need, MIT has assembled a team of writers, educators, and subject matter experts from both academia and industry to power the Institute's newest online learning offering -- a digital content library designed to help organizations keep their workforces apprised of the latest developments in technology and science. Known as MIT Horizon, the platform contains bite-sized articles, videos, and podcasts on emerging technologies, with early topics including additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, and robotics. "Technologies are advancing very rapidly, and we feel a responsibility at MIT to provide learning opportunities that can help today's workforce keep up with this pace of innovation," says Sanjay Sarma, MIT vice president for open learning.
