New technology pushes machine smarts to the edge

“The set of possible smart edge devices that can be used for industrial control is rapidly expanding as ever more compute and sensing capability moves to the edge,” says Greg Olsen, senior vice president, products, at Falkonry. “As long as the device can transform signal observation into operational commands or guidance, it can be considered a control device. Smartness is clearly subjective, but the range can include anything from advanced process control all the way up to artificial intelligence.”

Want to be happier and more successful? Learn to like other people

It sounds paradoxical, but according to University of Georgia researcher Jason Colquitt and his colleagues, people who tend to trust others at work score higher on a range of measure than those who don’t, from job performance to commitment to the team. And since we know that it’s our relationships—particularly with our bosses and colleagues—that determine how happy and successful we are as our careers progress, it may be worth asking some new questions. Instead of, “How can I improve?” the better question might be, “How can I start seeing more of the good in people, more often?”

Google’s Cloud Jobs API

Company career sites, job boards and applicant tracking systems can improve candidate experience and company hiring metrics with job search and discovery powered by sophisticated machine learning. The Cloud Jobs API provides highly intuitive job search that anticipates what job seekers are looking for and surfaces targeted recommendations that help them discover new opportunities. In order to provide the most relevant search results and recommendations, the API uses machine learning to understand how job titles and skills relate to one another, and what job content, location and seniority are the closest match for a jobseeker’s preferences.
