Companies around the world are working hard to achieve their objectives in this ever-changing scenario, most of them heavily investing in automation, digitalization, and artificial intelligence. Due to this trend, opportunities are opening, but unfortunately, the skilled workforce supply is low in several Information Technology areas.
To help you to stay focus on the right trends that the market demands when it comes to skills, SkillSoft, a Learning company that has been in the field for over 20 years, detailed an interesting report called “Lean Into Tech: 2020 Tech Skills Trends and 2021 Predictions.” …
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?
Data Science is an incredible area to develop your skills today. It combines statistics, Mathematics, Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning), and data.
You will analyze data, find patterns, make predictions, and help companies solve business problems.
Data Science is a multidisciplinary area focused on data analysis and Machine Learning. This work can feed a web application, for example, but the Data Scientist’s job is the analysis and predictive modeling. …
Many leaders are too focused on getting many responses — and not in a healthy search of potential and asking the right questions. It is time to recalibrate.
Although what you might think, voicing weakness and asking for support, clarity, or feedback does not recognize the strength of the trust and yet another sign of strength. The right questions tell you trust is being reciprocated, which shows trust is being given.
Giving trust generates more trust. It is often not about you talking more, but about your team members talking less and coordinating their efforts with you.
For example, rather than asking your team about an opportunity, you have found, ask them what they see as the opportunity and what they think they should bring to it. …

Recently I started to analyze a trend taking AI towards a more “creative” space with the integration with human creativity.
As content generation capabilities of AI increase, it starts to be applied more often in the more diverse areas, raising concerns about how its content can be protected as intellectual property.
Let’s consider for a moment all the industries and sectors that rely on intellectual property to generate and capture value. This set includes software, electronics, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, video games, film and television, journalism and news media, and music. …
AI is advancing rapidly and continues to grow. Fitting it all in has put us into a new reality that is being built and though at times, though.
AI and Machine Learning capacity will increase exponentially in the coming years, executing more complex tasks that today are exclusive to human beings.
Still, there is a frontier that, in addition to not being overcome until now, must take a long time to be broken by the machines: creative and innovative tasks.
But a new path may be possible to accelerate this evolution: the integration between AI and human creativity that can generate even more extraordinary results. …
The United States Patent and Trademark Office determined last year that it was legal for businesses to not list an Artificial Intelligence (AI) device as an inventor for a patent application and that the patent process is limited to humans only, considering that the Title 35 of the United States Code refers to inventors as “natural people,” using the words “whoever” (suggesting a natural person) and “himself” and “herself” (again suggesting that the invention is limited to the natural person).
It means that interpreting patent statutes broadly to cover machines, as well as individuals, would be contrary to the text of the law. …
As I’ve written in one of my previous articles, in the next years, driverless trucks will be routinely transporting freight on public roads — and not just in constrained environments like mines and ports as it’s happening already.
McKinsey considers that the cost savings for the trucking industry, it is estimated that the reduction in labor costs from driverless trucks will be more than $24 billion, as the number of autonomous trucks will increase, allowing shipping companies to operate 24 hours a day, in addition to growth in e-commerce.
There are tremendous opportunities in the global market (the $800B trucking industry transports 65% of the nation’s consumable goods in the US, for instance). Several startups are already competing to disrupt the transportation industry. …
In the next years, driverless trucks will be routinely transporting freight on public roads — and not just in constrained environments like mines and ports as it’s happening already.
Of course, it may not happen today — may be up to 2023 or 2025, even if currently, 35% of all trucks sold are already expected to have some level of advanced driving assistance (e.g., automatic braking), already there are some concerns on how much less influence lower-level autonomous driving trucks can have on society.
2020 brought to light a reality that many organizations ignored: no company survives without innovation and innovation speed.
Just look at how many of them have started rethinking their unforeseen business speed due to the covid-19 pandemic.
The new coronavirus pandemic has changed behaviors — and we’re not just talking about consumers.
Now, we are in 2021 and, keeping an eye on technological trends is more important than ever to devise strategies that will take you to the next level.
But I also know that the web is already full of articles about the top trends for the new year, etc.. …
Last year was tough, we all know… but it’s over… and in my first article of the new one, I want to thank all readers who have dedicated a considerable amount of their precious time reading my articles along 2020 and share with you some stats that make me hope for a beautiful 2021.
Last year, I pursued a simple goal: to share as much knowledge as I can. …
