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.

“There is a digital skills gap, and we hope to be apart of decreasing that digital skills gap,” says Parisa Zagat, policy programs manager at Facebook, in an interview with EdSurge.

Facebook this month announced broad plans to train one million people and small businesses in digital skills by 2020. The social media giant has since been rolling out announcements around partnerships with community colleges and local workforce training programs in about 50 different cities, including, most recently, Chicago.

The Adjunct’s Lifestyle: The Need for Essential Moments of Unproductivity | Online Teaching Guest Blog | Blog

The Adjunct’s Lifestyle: The Need for Essential Moments of Unproductivity | Online Teaching Guest Blog | Blog | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
I work an average of 60 hours a week for my normal job (that’s being kind to myself) plus an additional 20 plus hours when I am teaching, and another 20 plus hours a week working on things like my side hustles, writing, researching, and yes looking for my next “opportunity”. Opportunities that are part of the adjunct’s lifestyle include looking or applying for more online teaching gigs, entrepreneurship/passive income ideas, conferences to submit papers to, and anything in general that theoretically will enhance my life. All these opportunities mainly for monetary and/or career enhancement in the hopes of achieving a more “free” and independent lifestyle.

Here's timely advice for those of you striving to make the adjunct lifestyle work.  Mindful moments really can recharge the batteries.
