Evernote CEO Chris O'Neill says the Gig Economy is changing technology

Evernote CEO Chris O'Neill says the Gig Economy is changing technology | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Evernote CEO Chris O'Neill believes technology should be multipurpose – not strictly for business or personal use. He also believes you shouldn't dictate how users interact with technology. How people use it will vary based on their needs now, and there's nothing wrong with that. It's those two philosophies that have led to his company's success.

Unlike other organizational tools on the market, Evernote makes it particularly easy for users to maintain their personal and professional lives side by side, according to O'Neill. He said 70 percent of Evernote users like the organizational aspect of the service, and 50 percent use the program for lightweight task management or storage.

‘Cobot’, o no tener miedo a los robots

‘Cobot’, o no tener miedo a los robots | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Los humanos no debemos temer a los robots. De un modo muy general, harán nuestra vida más fácil en muchas dimensiones. Los robots pueden ayudar, o sustituir, en tareas que resultaban muy arduas para los humanos, por ejemplo, en algunos tipos de minas o en algunos aspectos militares, o que requieran mayor destreza, como en la cirugía o en la microtecnología, para cuidar a mayores y enfermos, para tareas en el hogar y otras que requieran mayor rapidez o mayor lentitud y precisión, a lo que hay que añadir los vehículos autoconducidos que cambiarán el paisaje urbano, o su papel en la apasionante exploración espacial, entre otros. La lista de las posibilidades tiene principio -estas es una invención relativamente reciente, aunque sea un sueño antiguo- pero no tiene fin. El proceso, la robotrevolución, acaba de empezar. Nos permitirá llegar a donde no llegamos.

How can Retail Industries benefit from Mobile Learning? | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

With the question of who exactly is interested in mobile learning, in the back of our mind, Float decided to get down to the bottom of things. By monitoring the companies who have been frequent visitors to our website, downloading our content, and reaching out to our personnel, we determined which vertical markets are most interested in mobile, microlearning and mobile apps for performance support.

After studying the key metrics including industries, website visits, documents which were downloaded by the individual industries, we produced a dataset of the Top 10 Industries interested in mobile learning. Want to see the rest of the list, check this out here.

Here are 5 ways for workers to win in the Robot Age

Here are 5 ways for workers to win in the Robot Age | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Machines and algorithms will do more current tasks than humans by 2025, according to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report 2018, which covers 20 economies and 12 industries. But this robot revolution will still create 58 million net new jobs in the next five years, the same research has found. Based on the operational realities of those at the frontlines of deciding on how to develop technological and human capital at the largest global companies in the world, the report aims to provide a nuanced, realistic view of the near future of work. Unlike long-term predictions and scenarios, a focus on the near term forces us to consider what we must do today to create the future we want.

How to stop humans becoming redundant in the workplace

How to stop humans becoming redundant in the workplace | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

I am likely stating the obvious but it needs to be stated as often as possible – the world is changing and it is changing fast. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is blurring the lines between the real and the technological world and challenging what it means to be human.

Yet people are clearly at the heart of all organizational transformations generated by this phenomenon. We see this, both in the transformation we are driving within Unilever but also when we look outside, across and beyond our industry.

All of this is affects how people will experience work, whether it’s new operating models that challenge hierarchy, new career models that allow for different experiences, a borderless workplace that allows for flexible resourcing, hyper-personalization in the workplace or the need to close a growing skills gap through a culture of lifelong learning.

7 ways AI will shape the future of Education and Work | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Artificial intelligence, or AI, is set to have a broad impact on future jobs, and the effects will trickle down to higher ed. While artificial intelligence (AI) hasn’t yet had a wide-reaching impact on the workforce, AI skills are predicted to remain in increasingly high demand. With so many industries seeing the potential for AI applications come to fruition, the economy will need highly-trained workers to fill what is likely to be a rising demand for such skills.

Social Learning – A transformational shift in Workplace Learning | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

How do I make my team work better by letting them learn the skills they need?

This is the primary question that L&D managers seek to address when embarking upon workplace learning programs in their organization. Time and again we have stressed, why organizations that have a strong culture of learning are more likely to achieve their organizational goals and remain profitable. The challenges of the modern workplace are many. The distractions on offer from one’s mobile devices, the Internet, and one’s colleagues are just a few. The past decade has steadily shown the changing dynamics of work culture. As a younger generation of employees enters the workforce; recruitment professionals are grappling with the reality that most of the youngsters have no qualms about leaving their jobs and opting for a new career at the bat of an eyelid. In this blog post, we look at how ‘social learning’ is gaining traction and being deployed in organizations to foster workplace learning.

Responding to Automation in the developing world

Responding to Automation in the developing world | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

The impact of automated technologies on the workplace has been a topic that I’ve covered numerous times, not least via a recent study led by MIT’s Eric Brynjolfsson, which argued that the ‘machines are taking our jobs’ narrative at the moment is excessively simplistic and the reality is that some tasks will be automated, but it will be incredibly rare for entire jobs to be taken by machines.

This more nuanced perspective is something I’ve advocated in all of my articles on this topic, with a general theme that education is a priority, both in terms of developing new skills to work effectively alongside machines, and to help people adapt if their profession is impacted by new autonomous technologies.

It’s on this general topic that a new report from the Center for Global Development think tank focuses. As their name suggests however, rather than focusing on how society should respond to automation in the developed world, it instead explores the situation in the developing world.

Are employees being prepared aor Automation?

Are employees being prepared aor Automation? | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

I’ve written numerous times about the possible impact automation will have on the workplace, and on the need for education to take center stage, both in the workplace and across society as a whole.

Whilst most of the narrative on this topic has been around how to retrain those whose jobs have been automated, there is also likely to be significant retraining required to ensure humans have the skills to work alongside machines.

Alas, a recent study from workplace company ADP suggests that this kind of training isn’t likely to be offered by many workplaces. Around half of the workers surveyed for the report said that their employer wasn’t providing any opportunities for them to reskill, either to work more effectively alongside AI or to retrain into new areas entirely.

Ask anyone which professional skill is most in demand right now, and they’ll likely say coding. But ask LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner, and he’ll give you a different answer.

As head of the world’s largest professional-networking site, Weiner presumably has access to more, and more detailed, employment information than any government. He knows what jobs people post, what jobs people have, and what jobs people want. And the biggest skills gap he says he sees in the United States is soft skills.

There is a need for a new model of Workplace Learning

There is a need for a new model of Workplace Learning | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

What can we learn from the problems associated with the current workplace learning model as well as what we know about how people prefer to learn at work?

It’s pretty clear it’s time for innovative thinking on how to solve organisational performance problems and help people grow and develop in the modern workplace. It’s no longer about applying old training practices and templates to new problems.

So, whilst there is a lot that can be done to improve the appeal of classroom training or e-learning to bring it in line with the way people learn on the Web, it is far more important to ensure that training is the most appropriate solution to a problem in the first place, and then, and only then, ensure it is offered to the individuals concerned in a format that is relevant and meaningful for them.

[PDF] How Millennials want to work and live

[PDF] How Millennials want to work and live | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
PEOPLE OFTEN ASK GALLUP, “Are millennials really that different?” The answer is yes — profoundly so. Millennials will change the world decisively more than any other generation. As this report shows, millennials will continue to disrupt how the world communicates — how we read and write and relate. Millennials are disrupting retail, hospitality, real estate and housing, transportation, entertainment and travel, and they will soon radically change higher education. Millennials are altering the very social fabric of America and the world.
 
They’re waiting longer to get married and have children, and they’re less likely than other generations to identify with specific religions or political parties. Defined by their lack of attachment to institutions and traditions, millennials change jobs more often than other generations — more than half say they’re currently looking for a new job. Millennials are changing the very will of the world. So we, too, must change. Gallup is recommending that our client partners change their organizational cultures this year from
old will to new will. There are six functional changes that we call the “Big Six.”

Por qué la arquitectura verde será fuente de millones de empleos (y cuáles son las profesiones con mayor demanda)

Por qué la arquitectura verde será fuente de millones de empleos (y cuáles son las profesiones con mayor demanda) | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Según los pronósticos de la Organización Internacional del Trabajo, se espera que la construcción de nuevos edificios amigables con el medio ambiente genere más de 6,5 millones de empleos para el 2030. Junto a la energía, este será el segundo sector de mayor crecimiento para empleos "verdes" en las próximas décadas.

La razón reside en una creciente necesidad de edificios que puedan hacer frente a múltiples desafíos aparejados al cambio climático, entre ellos el aumento de los costos de la energía, la escasez de agua y un mayor riesgo de condiciones climáticas extremas.

Why the Future of Work is Learning

Why the Future of Work is Learning | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

On the occasion of our upcoming Future of Work Tour, we sat down with Heather McGowan – one of the key experts of the tour – to talk about how technology and globalization are reshaping how we live and work. It quickly became clear that the issue of identity is foremost on Heather’s mind. She elaborated: “Higher education went from being a rare pursuit of creating new knowledge to a factory pipeline aimed at creating a deployable and skilled workforce. Then, from the late ’60s to early ’90s, we started on a pathway of creating a fixed identity. We asked people to choose an occupation and a future self, and to study and work hard to realize that identity. We still ask children what they want to be when they grow up. We ask university students to pick their major before they have taken their first course. Yet more than half the work we’ll be doing in future doesn’t yet exist and the other half of those work tasks may become automated.

[PDF] The Future of Jobs report 2018

[PDF] The Future of Jobs report 2018 | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is interacting with other socio-economic and demographic factors to create a perfect storm of business model change in all industries, resulting in major disruptions to labour markets. New categories of jobs will emerge, partly or wholly displacing others. The skill sets required in both old and new occupations will change in most industries and transform how and where people work. It may also affect female and male workers differently and transform the dynamics of the industry gender gap.

The Future of Jobs Report aims to unpack and provide specific information on the relative magnitude of these trends by industry and geography, and on the expected time horizon for their impact to be felt on job functions, employment levels and skills.

Nosotros Robots. La humanización de la tecnología | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Los robots han empezado a sernos cercanos. Es algo relativamente reciente. Incluso percibimos en ellos cierta identidad o cierta capacidad de llegar a tenerla. Pese a algunos temores que suscitan en los ciudadanos europeos, no hay ningún rechazo generalizado, salvo un cierto temor al hablar de empleo. Aunque con una actitud muy diferente a la de, por ejemplo, japoneses y coreanos que, debido a razones culturales, se sienten muy atraídos por los robots. No debemos verlos como rivales, no digamos ya enemigos, sino como instrumentos a nuestro servicio. De ahí el título de esta exposición ‘Nosotros, Robots‘, pues realza la cercanía, la empatía y el acercamiento de los humanos a los robots. La tecnología, la robótica, para triunfar, ha de acercarse a los humanos, ha de humanizarse. Y los humanos han de acercarse a los robots.

Helping make the network smarter

One small change that could have a major impact would be to look at everyone’s work from the perspective of standardized versus customized work. Every person in the company, with the help of some data and peer feedback, should be able to determine what percentage of their time is spent on standardized work. If the percentage is over a certain threshold, say 50%, then it becomes a management task to change that person’s job and add more customized work. The company should be constantly looking at ways to automate any standardized work in order to stay ahead of technology, the market, and the competition. Automation is pretty well inevitable but it does not have to decimate the workforce, as the Swedish example above shows.

[PDF] How to Reform Worker-Training and adjustment policies for an era of Technological Change 

[PDF] How to Reform Worker-Training and adjustment policies for an era of Technological Change  | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
There has been growing speculation that a coming wave of innovation—indeed, a tsunami—powered by artificial intelligence(AI) and robotics, will disrupt labor markets, generate mass unemployment, and shift the few jobs that remain into the insecure “gig economy.” Kneejerk “solutions” from such technology Cassandras include ideas like taxing “robots” and implementing universal basic income for everyone, employed or not. The first would slow needed productivity growth, employed or not; the second would reduce worker opportunity.
 
The truth is these technologies will provide a desperately needed boost to productivity and wages, but that does not mean no one will be hurt. There are always winners and losers in major economic transitions. But rather than slow down change to protect a modest number of workers at the expense of the vast majority, policymakers should focus on doing significantly more to help those who are dislocated transition easily into new jobs and new occupations.
Improving policies to help workers navigate what is likely to be a more turbulent labor market is not something that should be done just out of fairness, although it is certainly fair to help workers who are either hurt by change or at risk of being hurt. But absent better labor market transition policies, there is a real risk that public and elite sentiment will turn staunchly against technological change, seeing it
as fundamentally destructive and unfair. If this happens, it will undermine support for policies that are necessary to speed automation, and it could even build support for policies that “throw a wrench” into the innovation machine. Better transition policies will have the opposite effect— they will boost GDP and help employers facing worker shortages.
