We’re experiencing a 2nd wave of machine intelligence.

Today, traditional artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) largely depend upon data scientists to formulate labels associated with feature vectors that take into account model attributes such as entity, action, or relationship.

This process can result in implementation difficulties and errors over time.

A key challenge is that a given feature vector could be a blended version of multiple labels, and many algorithms force a choice of a single label.

A feature vector may also need a percentage of a given class label (e.g. 60% friendly and 35% extroverted).

There is also the chance that the data scientist did not choose the best set of class labels for the data to reflect contextual change, motivating the need to retrain the algorithm models.

In this webcast, Brian Womack will discuss:

  • Challenges of labeling data for next-generation ML applications, and suggestions for mitigating them
  • Instance-based learning methods from cognitive science and how they can create associations that can be grouped into a dynamic set of labels from which models can re-learn
  • Example uses cases to illustrate the challenges for the community to address

Presenter: Brian Womack PhD (LinkedIn profile) is a veteran of defense intelligence & operations with a combination of data science, analytics algorithm development, robust signal processing, and software engineering experience. He stays involved with the details of adaptive computing technologies to advance the state of the art of human machine intelligence (HMI). Brian’s R&D focus is on third wave of machine intelligence (3MI); which increases system autonomy by creating a true partnership of human and machine. His integration of traditional statistical learning methods from the 2MI and instance learning methods from cognitive memory-based computing, make high impact decisions faster with more relevant data. Dr. Womack received his Ph.D. from Duke in robust signal processing and his M.S. from Texas A&M in adaptive control systems.

The 13 Behaviors of High-Trust Leaders®, based on the international bestselling book The Speed of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything , by Stephen M.R. Covey.

In this preview, you will discover how 13 powerful behaviors can help you break down barriers that keep your team stuck when there is an overall lack of trust in the organization.

You’ll come away understanding that everything you do takes more time and costs more money when there’s low trust between you and those you depend on (and those who depend on you!).

Over time, when there’s low trust, relationships decay, projects fail, customers go to competitors and initiatives under-perform.

Join us to get a preview of what you can expect when you take The 13 Behaviors of High-Trust Leaders® seminar, including:

  • The power of trust as a key engine for driving performance and productivity
  • What tools you can use to manage change and lead high-performing teams
  • How to practice specific behaviors that increase trust
  • That with increased trust comes increased personal credibility
  • How you can influence your team to become high performing, agile, innovative and engaged

We encourage you to register even if you are unable to attend live; you’ll receive replay information following the event.

Presenter: Stephen M.R. Covey is a cofounder of CoveyLink and the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust Practice. A sought-after keynote speaker and advisor on trust, leadership, ethics, sales, and high performance, he is the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Speed of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything, a paradigm-shifting book that challenges our age-old assumption that trust is merely a soft, social virtue, and instead demonstrates that it is a hard-edged economic driver—a learnable, measurable skill that makes organizations more profitable, people more promotable, and relationships more energizing.

Everyone has an opinion on how to fix Performance Management (PM) today, as so it seems.

You have likely read countless reports, dialed into a number of webinars and attended conferences on this topic, each with its own idea on the “new frontier” of PM.

Everyone in the industry talks about ongoing PM, check-ins, crowdsourced feedback, “ratingless” PM, more focus on development versus evaluation, better use of technology and so on.

What should you do?

Perhaps you should follow the crowds to these new best practices, but will they make things better for your employees and your organization, and how will you know?

This webinar will examine and fact check Performance Management trends to help you decide if they are right for you.

Alan L. Colquitt (LinkedIn profile) Managing Partner, Alan L. Colquitt, LLC; will help you be a better consumer of the PM information that crosses your desk, and separate the “wheat from the chaff” in PM trends and recommendations.

Key takeaways from this webinar:

  • A better understanding of the new PM practices being proposed and what they mean
  • Clear answers on whether these practices will be right for your organization and why
  • Alternative practices that may better meet your needs

Creativity – Curiosity – Collaboration – Vision

When people are engaged at work, these are essential human qualities that fuel progress and lay the foundation for their success.

As many studies have already shown, infusing human elements into an environment does wonders for the productivity of people.

In the digitized, information-loaded workplace, who is responsible for ensuring that these simple, human principles are also a part of how people learn at work?

Herein lies an unprecedented opportunity for the HR and learning function. Already, CEO’s are calling for dramatic improvements in organizational learning2, and yet are currently not seeing their aspirations achieved.(Deloitte study, LinkedIn study)

Indeed, executive leaders are not clear about the value that Learning Functions provide.

Tune in for this informative discussion with Juliana Stancampiano (LinkedIn profile) Oxygen CEO and Ray Stephenson (LinkedIn profile) Microsoft’s Director of New Technology Innovation where they will share the results of a new study that explores the contrasting perceptions between executives’ aspirations for their L&D function, and how the function operates today.

Juliana & Ray will discuss the opportunity of a whole new dimension of value for the HR and Learning function and the emerging evidence that—when learning is humanized—people can achieve breakthrough performance.

The implications for the learning function are radically different –and surprisingly simple.

How can we use these realizations to power working in a new way

What does the passage of the new (USA) tax law mean for a gig economy increasingly characterized by a professional independent workforce?

A new provision allows sole proprietors, partnerships, and other pass-through entities to deduct 20 percent of their revenue from taxable income.

Designed as a mechanism to fuel small business growth, some argue it’s little more than a tax shelter for wealthy individuals.

While the full impact remains to be seen, what is clear is that the provision incentivizes independent contracting as an alternative to traditional employment.

  1. But what does that mean for the workers seeking to capitalize on these tax savings? And…
  2. How should employers prepare to acquire, classify, and manage talent under the new rules?

Neal Bhamre, Senior Vice President at TalentWave, & Roberto Cruz VP Compliance, Senior Legal Counsel, TalentWave as they explore the consequences of the new tax rules—both expected and unintended—on the independent workforce ecosystem.

Learn:

  • Details of the tax law changes impacting pass-through and corporate entities
  • The arguments for and against the pass-through provision
  • Potential benefits and risks of the pass-through provision:
    • Independent contractor perspective
    • Employer perspective
    • Third-party service provider perspective
  • How the tax plan may impact gig economy trends
  • Preparing for different talent acquisition and management models
