1. 4 Secrets for a Future Ready Career in Data Science

Automation makes running a business more efficient on one hand, and on the other, it keeps on changing the skill set required to stay relevant in the industry.

Scenario 1 – Manual Roles

You are an HR professional in the year 2000, when most of the company employee documents were on paper.

Is Data Scientist a Robot-Safe Profession. Read More

2. Build Your Own Natural Language Models on AWS (no ML experience required)

At AWS re:Invent last year we announced Amazon Comprehend, a natural language processing service which extracts key phrases, places, peoples’ names, brands, events, and sentiment from unstructured text. Comprehend – which is powered by sophisticated deep learning models trained by AWS – allows any developer to add natural language processing to their applications without requiring any machine learning skills.

Custom Classification allows developers to group documents into named categories. Read More

To observers from earlier centuries, these virtual environments would appear truly dazzling in their speed and complexity, with an almost unimaginable level of detail, creativity and ingenuity. By 2050, the average person in a developed country was employed for under 30 hours per week and this fell to 20 hours by 2100. More and more people were moving from “drudge” jobs into their own personal, creative and intellectual pursuits. Read More

Automation and job displacement in emerging markets: New evidence

Mitali Das

Evidence that routinisation lies behind labour market polarisation has been documented for many developed economies, but less is known about its impact in emerging markets. 2018, IMF 2018).

The exposure to routinisation in emerging and developed economies

In a new paper, Benjamin Hilgenstock and I propose a measure of the exposure to routinisation – that is, the risk of labour displacement by information technology – that can help answer such questions (Das and Hilgenstock 2018). Read More

11. Regulating the humans behind the wheel of autonomous vehicles

The job of autonomous vehicle safety driver seems pretty easy: Get paid for sitting there while the car does all the work. But it’s a challenging assignment and self-regulated by the companies testing AVs, so the rules are only beginning to emerge.

The big picture: Safety drivers are researchers’ eyes and ears, chronicling every roadway encounter to make the technology better. Read More

12. Why artificial intelligence is shaping our world

We stand on the edge of a crucial moment in the history of our species – a time when a creation of our own inventiveness has the potential to change everything. We are entering the age of artificial intelligence (AI). Today AI is being used in hundreds of different industries. Read More

13. Police can remotely drive your stolen Tesla into custody

Imagine this: You’re leaving work, walking to your car, and you find an empty parking spot — someone stole your brand new Tesla (or whatever fancy autonomous car you’re driving). This futuristic and almost slapstick scenario is closer than we think, says Chief Innovation Officer Hans Schönfeld who works for the Dutch police. Currently, his team has already done several experiments to test the crime-halting possibilities of autonomous cars. Read More
