Want To Drive The Future Of Your Business? Consider A Role In People Analytics

What makes People Analytics such an important emerging career?

Historically, we tend to put people in professional boxes based on their natural skill sets. If a recent graduate loves numbers and analytics, they’re told to pursue a role in finance or join a business analytics team.

If a candidate loves understanding what makes people tick, they may find themselves drawn toward HR and People Strategy. But in today’s people-forward and data-driven workforce, these old rules are antiquated—and these two seemingly opposite skill sets can be incredibly powerful when brought together.

I recently spoke with Patty Smith, People Analytics Partner at Cruise, who is proof that there are a lot of choices on the People side of business for individuals who are drawn to data sets as much as they are to solving human-centric challenges. 



If data is the new oil, synthetic data is an ethical and renewable alternative.

The challenge for AI developers is where to source this data.


    Deep Dive: How AI content generators work

    Developing an AI tool that can completely replace a person while matching human authors will take time.


    Artificial intelligence (AI) has been steadily influencing business processes, automating repetitive and mundane tasks even for complex industries like construction and medicine.

    While AI applications often work beneath the surface, AI-based content generators are front and center as businesses try to keep up with the increased demand for original content. However, creating content takes time, and producing high-quality material regularly can be difficult. For that reason, AI continues to find its way into creative business processes like content marketing to alleviate such problems.

    AI can effectively personalize content marketing to the audience it is aimed at, according to David Schubmehl, research vice president for conversational AI and intelligent knowledge discovery at IDC. 

    Partnerships are the way forward, Diveplane says.

    Black box” artificial intelligence (AI) systems are designed to automate decision-making, mapping a user’s features into a class predicting individual behavioral traits such as credit risk, health status, and so on, without revealing why. This is problematic, not only because of the lack of transparency, but also because of potential biases inherited by algorithms from human prejudices or any hidden elements in the training data that may result in unfair or incorrect decisions. 

    As AI continues to proliferate, there is an increasing need for technology companies to demonstrate the ability to trace back through the decision-making process, a functionality called explainable AI. This would essentially help them understand why a certain prediction or decision was made, what the important factors were in making that prediction or decision, and how confident the model is in that prediction or decision.

    Three Trusted CEO digital Strategies To Face The New World

    Article by @VentureBeat

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) everywhere has the potential to transform every business and improve the life of every person on the planet. In fact, every day we hear about AI breaking new ground, from detecting cancer and playing Minecraft, to creating “sentient” chatbots and generating compelling art. The goal of AI is simple: To accelerate “data to insights.” We have seen tremendous progress in the basic AI ingredients — the exponential growth of “data, compute and algorithms.”

    Data, as measured by the total number of bytes, is in zettabytes. Compute, as measured by hardware execution capacity of operations per second, is in petaflops to exaflops, and algorithms, as measured by the number of parameters in a neural network, have exceeded a trillion.
