The business imperative behind inclusion and diversity

#artificialintelligence

Dr. Tucker (PhD in journalism and mass communication) is founder of Do What Matters, a consultancy dedicated to promoting diversity in the marketing services industry, with a special focus on agencies -- but her insights have application across all kinds of business teams. Improving cultural and social wellness within a business like an agency is an ethical imperative. Right now, employers need to pay attention to mental wellness too. "Agencies are feeling a lot of pressure," said Dr Tucker. "Their feeling squeezed margins by the growing in-house movement, increased competition from consultancies, more demanding clients. I mean, it has gotten even worse since COVID --- everybody just feels like they need access all the time and they can get it through Zoom or Teams or cell phones or what have you. And then rising employee and customer activism means that there's a lot of consciousness that has been raised. Clearly, some employees are bearing the brunt of burnout, workplace harassment, discrimination, and blocked opportunities more than others. "When you look at the entire industry, it is no wonder that people of color, women, and other disadvantaged groups are feeling the pain.


Best Podcasts for Machine Learning - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Podcasts are a great way to learn about novel fields and tools, as well as keeping yourself updated with the fields that you care about. I also believe that podcasts, which are mainly centered around interviews, are a great way to learn about the rock stars and superheroes of the AI world. You get a glimpse of how they think, what they are working on, and how they solved a particular problem. I would also argue that the content you get access to by listening to podcasts is unique, and you cannot access them somewhere else. In this post, I am not going into the details of why I think podcasts are great and Machine Learning learners and practitioners should listen to them. Here are the podcasts that I highly recommend for ML learners and professionals.


No Longer Sci-Fi: Laser Guns Are Coming to the U.S. Military

#artificialintelligence

Enemy drone attack threats are a key part of the inspiration for newer kinds of laser weapons because they can incinerate drones without generating large amounts of explosive fragmentation. Moreover, newer lasers can scale attacks to align with the target and desired combat effect and, perhaps most of all, travel at the speed of light to destroy drones quickly, ideally before they are able to strike. Attacking drone swarms may be approaching for attack so quickly that kinetic responses such as interceptor missile fire control systems may be challenged in certain respects, depending upon the extent of artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled target recognition technology and computer automation. The question of scaling lasers to optimize power input for counter-drone strikes is addressed in a recent essay from May of last year called "Testing the Efficiency of Laser Technology to Destroy Rogue Drones," in the Security & Defense Quarterly from War Studies University. The essay describes innovative experimental methods of "incorporating a laser module and groups of optical lenses to focus the power in one point to carbonize any target."

Omnichannel Commerce: An Interview with John Bruno, VP Commerce Strategy, PROS [Sponsored Post]

#artificialintelligence

Thinkers360: Firstly, what is omnichannel commerce? Since the topic has been around for a while, what is unique about PROS' perspective on this topic and why now? Well, the topic's been around for a while now, largely thanks to patterns in the consumer world. The first thing that kind of comes to mind is what happens in a typical business to consumer or retail experience where you might purchase online but pick up in-store. And thanks to COVID right now, we've seen the rising popularity of curbside pickup.


Facial Recognition Technology and AI are the Game Changers in the HR Department

#artificialintelligence

As technology advances, machines are becoming more and more sophisticated, the tools we utilize increasingly intricate, and the currently exceptionally debated and discussed "AI" is being brought into each aspect of our lives. Artificial Intelligence has a vast number of uses in the present society. It is being utilized in aviation, training, computer science, finances, ecology, medical care, heavy industry, marketing, e-commerce business, customer service, and transportation. One could continue for quite a long time this way, only listing the industries in which AI is prominent. Being so widely used to upgrade the professional existences of so many, it is no big surprise that Artificial Intelligence has infiltrated the pursuit of employment and recruitment markets.


Billionaire founder of Nidec hands reins to ex-Nissan star

The Japan Times

Almost half a century after founding his pioneering motor-maker on the family farm, Japanese billionaire Shigenobu Nagamori is handing over leadership of Nidec Corp. to a former Nissan Motor Co. executive to lead an ambitious pivot into the electric-vehicle space. Jun Seki will take over from Nagamori as chief executive officer, the Kyoto-based company said last week as it announced better-than-projected annual results. The leadership change, which comes a little over a year after Seki's move from Nissan, will be finalized when Nidec's board meets June 22. Nagamori, who founded Nidec in a shack in 1973, will remain chairman. Seki, 59, was appointed president of Nidec after leaving Nissan, where he was vice chief operating officer and an unsuccessful contender for CEO after Hiroto Saikawa resigned amid a compensation scandal, following the shock arrest of former chairman Carlos Ghosn.

Here's how Breeze, 'Valorant's' newest map, was built

Washington Post - Technology News

On Friday, influencers and press crowded into an exclusive Discord server to organize groups of ten for custom matches on "Valorant's" upcoming map, Breeze. Amid hushed conversations about soon-to-be-leaked roster changes and complaints about worsening sleep schedules, there was a general sensation of optimism, one that had been noticeably absent the last time Riot Games released a "Valorant" map. Maybe it was just the sunshine talking. Breeze, inspired in part by creative director David Nottingham's time living in Trinidad, unleashes "Valorant's" agents upon a tropical playground. Look up; aren't those seagulls hovering overhead?

#artificialintelligence

Imagine the first day of your next job. You've never visited the office before or sat down with anyone from the company in person. In fact, the first person you meet face-to-face is the security guard, who hands you your building pass at reception. However, even though you've never been here before, you make your way to your desk, and see familiar faces and spaces. You wave hello to your manager, sit down at your desk, and begin work like you've been with the company for years.
