will become #futureofwork
There’s lots of anxiety about automation of jobs because machines are learning how humans do
things – they’re also learning how to do them better. But this automation is mostly for procedural work
that humans don’t really like doing. Augmented Intelligence, where machines and humans work
together, allows us to better understand and improve operations too complex for the human mind to
manage with faster time to insights. It will redefine management and place greater emphasis on soft
skills, that is, critical thinking, cognitive flexibility, emotional intelligence, imagination, and creativity,
with a greater emphasis on lifelong learning.

“What's missing from machine learning is
understanding and generalizations”

Deep Learning cannot do true conversational AI
because 'intent based' NLU lacks meaning,
understanding, ability to generalize.
Pat.ai Conversational AI service provides
meaning - the missing piece - to create positive
human-machine interactions where reasoning
and 'common sense' are by-products.

Emotions influence learning, memory, behavior processes in the brain
The hippocampus and amygdalae regions in brain play key roles in processing both memories and emotions, and
interactions between the two may reinforce the link between memory and emotions.

Artificial Intelligence’s Role in Classrooms
• @ThisIsCentury partnering with Flanders, Belgium, to roll-out CENTURY to all 700 of its state schools -
helping 200,000 more pupils to fulfill their potential ! " calls it the “first-ever state-level rollout of
artificial intelligence in schools.”
• The first schools in Belgium will begin using the program in September of this year, building to a wider
deployment around 2024, Century Tech said.
We are not developing robots designed to take over the classroom CENTURY Tech Data Scientist Michael Ma

1.Organize around information flows; ditch hierarchy and bureaucracy.
3. Replace long lists of rules with a good M.O
4. Get Used to Living in the “In Between”
5. Open up new feedback loops
6. Tap into power of minds and machines ( augmented intelligence )

Alpha brain waves related to selective attention and working memory may stem from
two different processes in the brain, according to new research.
Your Brain Chooses What to Let You See
Beneath our awareness, the brain uses a goal-directed attentional processes: It gets rid of
information that’s distracting or less useful in order to make the more relevant inputs stand out.

6 Traits All Top Performers Share
1. Intellectual firepower ( crystallized and fluid intelligence )
2. Values (Integrity first )
3. Passion ( with clarity & conviction )
4. Work ethic ( must be proactive and team player )
5. Experience ( more important is what can you do for me now….past experience not as relevant )
6. Being yourself ( be REAL not another pretender and/or fakester )
Close: #AugmentedIntelligence will become #futureofwork
• Competitive imperative to change way industries operate and businesses compete.
• Machines enhance human imagination by connecting concepts, ideas and products.
• Greater emphasis on soft skills i.e. critical thinking, cognitive flexibility, emotional intelligence,
imagination, creativity and lifelong learning.
Chance favors the prepared mind ( Louis Pastuer ) but
timing in critical so must train your intuition !
Embrace change because it creates opportunity.
