This is the perfect moment to start learning something new, and why not start with AI?

I know the pandemic is keeping everyone at home, home working is becoming the new normal for many of us, and it is hard to find good presential training these days, but it does not mean that you need to stop learning!

I would say that this is the perfect moment to start learning something new, and why not start with Data Science?

The Future of Jobs Reports 2020 edition shows industry-wide parallels while looking at increasingly strategic and increasingly redundant jobs.

Roles, including Data Analysts and Data Scientists, AI and Machine Learning Specialists, Robotics Engineers, and Digital Transformation Specialists, are the leaders in the growing demand for the next future. …

Artificial Intelligence, Opinion

Before you start worrying about AI, you should consider analyzing the relationships between human intelligence and AI.

I recently started to follow an exciting and mind-bending philosophy online course at MIT called Minds and Machines.

The course is a thorough, rigorous 12 Weeks Learning Path introduction to contemporary philosophy of mind, exploring consciousness, reality, artificial intelligence (AI), and more. It is definitively one of the most in-depth philosophy courses available online that I ever frequented.

The first effect of starting study philosophy at Massachusetts Institute of Technology is that I’m asking more challenging questions… the second effect is that I’m writing more about those questions.

I‘m in this moment, exploring the relationship between the mind and the body, the capacity of computers to think, the way we perceive reality, and the perspective of the existence of a science of consciousness. …

Google has just announced the launch of MediaPipe Objectron, its mobile technology for real-time detection of 3D objects, enabling the smartphone to recognize the size and orientation of objects.

If there one thing that I love in Google’s research is image analysis. The automatic suggestions of Google Photos or the capabilities of Google Lens are good examples, and the recent news that the company already has its new layer of analysis-ready to understand what is present in each photo.

If we go a little further, to object detection as such, Google also has a few tricks up its sleeve.

Google has just announced the launch of MediaPipe Objectron, its mobile technology for detecting 3D objects in real-time, allowing the smartphone to recognize an object’s size and orientation, opening several application doors. …

Virtual recruiters and advanced analytics tools come with a proposal for a safer and more transparent hiring process.

Artificial intelligence (AI), the use of human-like intelligence through software and mechanisms, enables the disruption of the most diverse segments. After all, this is an industry that has grown an average of 20% per year for the past 5 years, according to a survey by BBC Research.

Many organizations have already joined the “future” and gained space by efficiently applying AI in everyday activities. For example, some banks started to perform financial services without the help of a human; farms use drones capable of identifying points in a crop that need more irrigation and automatically trigger sprinklers.

AI is not set to replace the recruiter’s work, the importance of the interview, the empathy, and the sparkle in the eye that we sometimes feel when interviewing a candidate. This area deals with human relations, and this will hardly be replaced. …

Honda will be first to mass-produce level 3 autonomous cars by the end of March 2021

Honda claims it will be the world’s first automaker to mass-produce sensor-packed level 3 autonomous cars that will allow drivers to let their vehicles navigate congested expressway traffic, meeting the SAE Level 3 standards.

The automaker has plans to produce and sell a version of its Honda Legend luxury sedan with fully approved automated driving equipment in Japan from next March.

They announced the news via press release (via Reuters), and this follows the approval by the Japanese government of the company’s “Traffic Jam Pilot” autonomous tech, which for the first time, will allow drivers to take their eyes off the road while it’s engaged. …

Artificial Intelligence means for the digital transformation what electricity has meant to humanity in the past. Are you ready?

Digital Transformation is one of the most critical drivers on how companies will continue to deliver value to their customers in a highly competitive and ever-changing business environment.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been recognized as one of the central enablers of digital transformation in several industries.

The transformation process seeks to leverage digital technologies to create or modify customer experiences and culture and business processes, thus meeting customers’ changing needs and the market.

And this is where AI comes into play. It can help companies become more innovative, more flexible, and more adaptive than ever.

The promise of speed, ease, and cost optimization, while simplifying complex processes and systems, places artificial intelligence as one of the most significant digital transformation drivers. …

Global Job marketing is changing at an unheard pace and is changing from “Work from home” to “Work from anywhere.”

Since the beginning of the pandemic, teleworking systems have changed the calculation of professionals, corporations, and countries regarding new global mobility opportunities.

The health threat and the closing of borders also promoted foreign technicians and executives’ repatriation to their countries of origin. They continued to work with the former teams, now at a distance.

From “Work from home” to “work from anywhere.”

As a result, the proliferation of the home office, unlikely on such a scale before Covid-19, accelerated aspirations designed for the distant future called “work from anywhere,” without this leap being accompanied by the milestones corresponding regulations, raising migration, labor, tax, and even criminal issues.

Among the new trends are two models in which contractors and contractors are in different countries: the so-called “virtual assignments” (virtual hiring of someone in another country) and digital nomadism, remote work performed by travelers who work remotely anywhere in the world by Internet. …

Data is the new oil, and to transform it into rocket fuel, you will need to teach your people how to use it.

With the evolution of Artificial Intelligence and other technological innovations, many companies neglect what remains the main asset of any business: its human capital. Humans generate data; data is the new oil; it is the new currency.

If you have the impression that you hear it before… The phrase “data is the new oil” is not mine.. but it was said — and has been repeated since it was coined by the British mathematician, Clive Humby, in 2006 — to denote this value and power in the data in our business lives.

Data is not just numbers; they are texts, videos, images, audios, and all kinds of information encoded. Data are even people. The combination of millions, billions, trillions of information make up what we call Big Data. …

A framework to balance between protecting citizens and fostering technological development.

The EU has released recommendations on artificial intelligence regulation to balance protecting customers and to promote technological growth. These include an agreement on IP problems, a development ethics policy, and liability rules setting penalties of up to € 2 million and a 30-year limitation period for such claims.

In this article i propose a summary of key proposals.

These are amongst the first detailed legislative proposals to be published internationally, so make for interesting reading for stakeholders worldwide. The recommendations cover three areas:

  • an ethics framework for AI
  • liability for AI causing damage
  • intellectual property rights

For AI product producers, these ideas merit careful consideration. Specifically, those running “high-risk” AI face the possibility of a rigorous new regulatory regime. Next year, the European Commission said it would issue draft regulations on AI. …
