Machine Learning – the new way to learn

Machine learning is one of the biggest recent developments in technology. No longer needing to be programmed, computers are being taught to learn on their own, identifying patterns and trends and even making predictions in a way that humans would be incapable of doing on their own. But, how can this new area of computer science be applied and used in HR?

François Pellerin's curator insight, January 8, 1:22 AM

Cet article nous rappelle quelques principes de base:

  • People are the real driver of the success of your business, not machines or software.
  • Recognize the true cost of any technology you install as well as the benefits.
  • Process improvement through Lean will often deliver equal or better business performance improvements than automation, without the massive investment.
  • Make sure that your technology investment will not be “stranded” if your products or customers change.
  • Recognize that competitive advantage comes from know-how you develop yourself, not know-how you buy. Your competitor can (and often will) buy the same automated technology and match what you can offer.
