How to Build Bots with SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation


If your primary interest in taking this course is getting a technical overview about bot building with SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation for the enterprise, you do not need access to any system. However, we realize that many of you will be interested in developing your own bots, based on the instructions in the course. We'll therefore provide the necessary instructions and installation procedures in the respective course weeks.

It's Time for a C-Level Role Dedicated to Reskilling Workers


Although corporate leaders have talked about skills gaps for years, the spread of automation and artificial intelligence is prompting some of the biggest companies -- including Amazon, JPMorgan Chase, SAP, Walmart, and AT&T, to name just a few -- to take action, not with small pilots but with comprehensive plans to retrain large segments of their workforces. These programs signal that the "future of work" is no longer an event on the distant horizon. Our latest research finds that the occupational mix of the economy is already shifting in ways that will accelerate over the next decade. Although we estimate that only 5% of all occupations can be fully automated, the activities in nearly all jobs will evolve. As intelligent machines take over many physical, repetitive, or basic cognitive tasks, the work that remains will involve both more technical and digital skills and more personal interaction, creativity, and judgment.

Researchers improve robot-assisted surgery with AI


Robot-assisted surgery promises nothing short of a paradigm shift in medicine. In subfields from urology and gynecology to cardiothoracic and pediatric surgery, it's enabling surgeons to perform complex procedures without having to resort to laparotomy (surgical incisions into the abdomen). Better still, surgical robots contain cameras that capture every knife and needle movement and suture stitch, contributing to a video library that could be used to train gesture recognition systems for skills assessments, step-by-step instruction, and automation of pre- and post-operative tasks. The trouble is, state-of-the-art methods for action recognition require samples like videos to be manually labeled, which tends to be both time-consuming and error-prone. By way of background, neural networks consist of neurons that are arranged in layers and transmit signals to other neurons.

Raspberry Pi Robotics Projects, Second Edition - Programmer Books


This book starts with the essentials of turning on the basic hardware. It provides the capability to interpret your commands and have your robot initiate actions. In this second edition, you will learn more specifics on how to use the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins to communicate with and control a wide range of additional hardware. Teaching you to use the Raspberry Pi from scratch, this book will discuss a wide range of capabilities that can be achieved with it. These capabilities include voice recognition, human-like speech simulation, computer vision, motor control, GPS location, and wireless control.

Machine Learning Coursera


Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself.

RMIT partners with NAB and Palo Alto Networks for new cybersecurity course


The smartest companies now approach cybersecurity with a risk management strategy. Learn how to make policies to protect your most important digital assets. The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) has announced a new online course on cybersecurity in a bid to address Australia's cybersecurity skills shortage. As part of the course, RMIT Online has partnered with the National Australia Bank (NAB) and Palo Alto Networks, with both organisations to provide mentors for the course. The course, called Cyber Security Risk and Strategy, will cover topics such as the fundamentals of cybersecurity and how to apply cybersecurity risk mitigation strategies to an organisation.

5 cheap online courses that could help you land a job in AI


These days, pundits galore are proselytizing about the Future of Work. Depending on who you ask, the robots may or may not be taking over, leaving us mere humans pondering how work fits into our lives and whether we're going to be eventually rendered obsolete. Just look at the stark contrast in tone between these two headlines: the Wall Street Journal's White-Collar Robots Are Coming For Jobs versus Wired's Chill: Robots Won't Take All Our Jobs. Who should we *really* believe?! The truth is there isn't one easy answer.
