Voice Recognition Software Finally Beats Humans At Typing, Study Finds

Voice Recognition Software Finally Beats Humans At Typing, Study Finds | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

"Computers have already beaten us at chess, Jeopardy and Go, the ancient board game from Asia. And now, in the raging war with machines, human beings have lost yet another battle — over typing.

Turns out voice recognition software has improved to the point where it is significantly faster and more accurate at producing text on a mobile device than we are at typing on its keyboard. That's according to a new study by Stanford University, the University of Washington and Baidu, the Chinese Internet giant. The study ran tests in English and Mandarin Chinese."

The Hidden Curriculum of Work

The Hidden Curriculum of Work | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

What do you do for work? Not, what is your job title, or what’s written in your official job description? But what do you actually do?

 

It’s potentially the most important question you can ask yourself if you care about standing out, staying ahead of the change curve, and continuously elevating your performance to gain access to choice assignments and opportunities to advance.

 

This is because the value you deliver, the results you produce, and the impact you have on others come more often from the execution of unspoken intangibles that are not reflected in your title, job description, or the daily tasks and activities you’re responsible for. This severe mismatch is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the true demands of work.

The hidden curriculum of work, is about what goes beyond your job profile. When you apply for a perticular post, you are accepting two jobs, one is the what you applied for, and the other is the interpersonal work, the hidden curriulum that goes with the post. The post of teaching includes your knowledge of the subject, pedagogical skills and most immportant of all are your inter-personal skills, your life skills, your attitude towards the learners, approachablility...etc.

How To Get A Job In A Field You Didn't Major In

How To Get A Job In A Field You Didn't Major In | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

To graduate on time, you probably needed to declare your major by your sophomore year. But by the time graduation rolls around, it wouldn’t be surprising if your career ambitions have shifted to something outside of your major. Perhaps an internship didn’t turn out how you expected, or certain courses dampened your passion for the occupation you thought you wanted to pursue. So, now you’re in a tough spot, where your degree doesn’t quite line up with what it is you want to do.

 

The upshot? There’s no need to panic. "It’s natural for college students to change their career direction," says Donald Asher, author of How to Get Any Job with Any Major. Furthermore, employers aren’t as hung up on your major as you might think. "Once you step off campus, hiring managers care a lot less about what your major was," says Asher. "They care more about the fact that you have a college degree."

 

After you’ve secured a diploma, it’s time to convince a potential employer to hire you, regardless of what your degree is in. These five steps can help you start off on the right foot.

Strangely enough, being tech savvy has not translated into effective communication skills. E-Mails are just another form of letters thus like all effective formal letters, E-Mails too need to have an effective subject line. It is not surprising that in today's hectic times, people scarcely move beyond the statement of the subject. The subject line is perhaps the most important part of the E-Mail because it is a window into the letter/ e-mail.
