Path to Real AI Results in Business Growth

The Path to Real Artificial Intelligence Results in Business Growth

Artificial Intelligence is one of humanity’s most inspiring quests. I feel lucky to live in a time when there is so much initiative around Artificial Intelligence, and entrepreneurs are backing AI software development, recognizing it as a technology of the future. With all the talk around AI however, it’s sometimes hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. Real AI is supposed to drive real results in business growth – not just buzz and social media likes.

Why you should hire a humanities major

Why you should hire a humanities major to work in technology

Let me just start by saying that I am writing this post from a position that I never thought I’d be in: approaching the six month mark as a Technical Support Representative at a company that specializes in software. I’m a English major, who has always had dreams of writing fiction, and more recently has aspired to work as a technical writer, so needless to say that Technical Support Representative was nowhere near the top of my list. Because six months ago I would have described myself as “not a computer person”.

So here’s the story of how I got this job, and why I’ve come to realize in the last six months that not only is someone with my background an excellent fit for this kind of a position, but why more Humanities majors should apply for jobs like it, and why hiring managers should look for applicants with these kinds of qualifications.

Lead Follow-Up Failure Webinar

Lead follow-up failure: Whose fault is it anyway?

Lead follow-up.  Sales and marketing teams know the importance of following up with every inbound lead, yet it continues to be a problem for most organizations.

Top 5 AI Trends for 2018

Top 5 AI Trends for 2018

More people are coming to accept AI technology and its prevalence in everyday applications, from chatbots in customer service to surveillance robots in shopping malls. But much of what we think about artificial intelligence continues to stem from a dystopian outlook shaped by pop culture and movies like Blade Runner 2049 and Ex Machina (both great movies, by the way).

We’ve got a long ways to go before replicants assimilate into mainstream society. But as this year comes to an end, I can’t help but wonder what kind of AI trends will take hold in the new year.

So, here are our picks for the top 5 AI trends to watch in 2018:
