Development of technical progress Technical progress can be said to be the economic measure and count of innovation. The relationship that technology and development have with human capital is a crucial one. It is possible to apply the same type of technology on two separate firms and get very different outputs based on human capital. Adaptation to IT and new technology can be said to be directly proportional to the rate of economic growth in any country and the world. This means that the key to development in the world is technology. In schools, classes can now be held distantly via tools like Skype (News - Alert) and email.

Technology changing the face of education
When it comes to reskilling people to work in the digital age, most companies rely on standard, one-size-fits-all learning and development (L&D) programs. These include seminars and online training courses focused on cementing specific skillsets, which will become outdated soon, given the rate at which business environments are changing and the fact that new skillsets are becoming vital. The upshot is a strong need for organisations to foster a culture of continuous learning. This is learning that not only helps employees build future-proof careers and excel in the face of disruption, but also helps organisations become more agile to remain competitive and continue to thrive. To make it happen, companies need to reimagine reskilling.According to AI 360, the second edition of Genpact’s global AI study, 80 per cent of workers say they are willing to learn new skills to take advantage of artificial intelligence (AI) in their current job. Yet while more than half of senior … [Read more...] about Reskilling talent at the pace of change in the digital age

ByRich Cohen Feb. 22, 2019 Once upon a time, we traveled by map. In the United States, the map, whether it be a Conquistador sketch, a Rand McNally atlas or a foldout picked up at Maps are the only way we know our country is a country, a unified thing instead of a series of fields, forests and cities that go forever. Maps are mystery. You cannot look at the names of the towns and ranges without imagining yourself absorbed in experience — the jagged line of the Sawtooths, the peak of which you know is approached by roads lined with motor courts, or the vein of California’s Highway 1. Along that road, I see myself visiting San Simeon to see … [Read more...] about Rediscovering the World of ‘Blue Highways’
In 2016, to find beauty tech at the Consumer Electronics Show, I had to trek off to an out-of-the-way ballroom, sequestered from the gadgets focused on health, fitness, and sleep. At CES 2019, things had changed quite a bit. Clarisonic made its CES debut with its own booth, and Procter & Gamble devoted a huge section to its beauty brand SK-II. “Three years ago when we were here for the first time at CES, people were asking us, ‘What is Neutrogena doing at CES?’” Sebastien Guillon, the company’s global president of beauty, told Digital Trends. Neutrogena, Olay, and L’Oreal all brought tech to the show, aimed at making skincare and beauty more personal for their customers. Whether you think skincare is a scam or essential self-care, chances are you want to make sure whatever you’re doing is actually working. “Chronic treatments — moisturizer, sunscreens — is a pretty intangible benefit,” said Dr. Paul Matts, … [Read more...] about In search of the fountain of youth, beauty companies turn to tech
The development of ‘intelligent systems’ has led to the rapid appearance of an entirely new category of device, many of which would’ve been resigned to science fiction not so long ago. Usually being constructed upon some form of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology, intelligent systems can be defined as ‘technologically advanced machines which have the capability to interact with the world around them as well as, if not better than, a human being’. Smart technology is already starting to reformulate our home life, with appliances like the Roomba and virtual assistants like Amazon’s Echo proving to be immensely popular.However, where these systems may prove to be most impactful will be through their deployment within our wider economy. We are currently on the cusp of a fourth industrial revolution. One which will see these intelligent systems permeate their way into our work world en masse. The ground work for this is … [Read more...] about Industrial Revolution 4.0: How can we ensure that individuals aren’t left behind by the rise of AI?
