Artificial Intelligence: The Robots Are Now Hiring

Artificial Intelligence: The Robots Are Now Hiring | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The practice is part of a general trend of some hiring companies to move away from assessing candidates based on their resumes and skills, towards making hiring decisions based on people’s personalities.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

What could an AI glean about your personality by analysing your social media presence?  How would you feel about an employer scanning your video interview to feed an artificial intelligence algorithm as it compares your micro-gestures to those of proven producers?   It's a brave new world of work out there.

Technology changes at such a rapid rate that it is tough to look ahead and envision where it will be in five years let alone fifty years...but that is what this infographic does. This timeline focuses on digital and mobile as well as big data, and references are provided for the information. 
Check it out and see if you agree or disagree.

Very interesting. Product development is possible, but the human brain has capabilities that a computer sill not surpass in that time. I doubt we understand the human brain sufficiently at this time to speculate about a computer's comparitive ability. Good ideas for science fiction writers, though.

Each year, IBM releases a list of five innovations that it believes have the potential to change the way people work, live, and interact during the next five years. This year, the IBM researchers working on the “5 in 5” listing focus on the notion that in the future, everything will learn. 


According to IBM: “Driven by a new era of cognitive systems where machines will learn, reason, and engage with us in a more natural and personalized way. These innovations are beginning to emerge enabled by cloud computing, big data analytics, and learning technologies all coming together.” 


The number 1 item for 2014: The Classroom Will Learn You

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Ray Kurzweil predicted a computer based personal teacher for each student back in the nineties. (I was in the audience and the concept fascinated me.)  


Here's IBM's take on what to expect in the near future. We live in interesting times!
