Check out this sneak peak of Deborah Grayson Riegel’s new course, Smart Tips: Communication. This course is fast-paced and fun (yes, really!), and you’ll get the best of the best from my years of experience teaching and coaching busy professionals at all levels, my commitment to using research-based strategies from psychology, neuroscience, behavioral economics, etc., my personal experience as a parent of twins (talk about conflict!); as well as a taste of my background in stand-up and improvisational comedy. What are you waiting for? (You could already have learned 3 new skills in the time it took you to read this!) Join thousands of other busy professionals like yourself and give yourself a competitive, communicative edge to help you advance in your job and career. Here are some great courses I recommend: Smart Tips: Communication https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=Z5mECFGxe9o&mid=39197&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fcourse%2Fcommunicatebrilliantly%2F%3FreferralCode%3D74285A21019B23147DFB Business Presentation Skills for Nonnative English Speakers https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=Z5mECFGxe9o&mid=39197&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fcourse%2Fpresentation-skills-for-nonnative-english-speakers%2F%3FreferralCode%3D3E450E5E44FDC89B6BBD The Manager’s Guide to Driving High Performance https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=Z5mECFGxe9o&mid=39197&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fcourse%2Fthe-managers-guide-to-driving-high-performance%2F%3FreferralCode%3DEABA5AF95F85598A0329 Coaching for Growth and Success https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=Z5mECFGxe9o&mid=39197&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fcourse%2Fcoaching-for-growth%2F%3FreferralCode%3D20846369B7F1D2CD074A Talking to Your Employees About Stress at Work https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=Z5mECFGxe9o&mid=39197&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fcourse%2Ftalking-to-your-employees-about-stress-at-work%2F%3FreferralCode%3DE8B677AECA0C66C90CEC Smart Tips: Soft Skills for Technical Professionals https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=Z5mECFGxe9o&mid=39197&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fcourse%2Fsoft-skills-for-tech-pros%2F%3FreferralCode%3D792871B3C68E89E6488B What’s Your Leadership Style? https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=Z5mECFGxe9o&mid=39197&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fcourse%2Fwhats-your-leadership-style%2F Women’s Leadership https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=Z5mECFGxe9o&mid=39197&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fcourse%2Fwomensleadership%2F
Breaking the Wall between Human and Artificial Intelligence: From the stuff of dystopian science fiction movies to everyday companions – with the rise of ubiquitous mobile computing power, artificial intelligence (AI) is already permeating modern life. As of 2017, deep learning algorithms power our phones’ voice-assistants, recommend the latest movies, and optimise our bike ride to work. AI has been heralded as the new electricity, soon to be found in almost every piece of technology we produce. To the man who has been described as “the father of modern AI”, this is merely the beginning. Although the artificial neural networks of Jürgen Schmidhuber’s team are now in 3 billion smartphones, he considers our current state of AI technology to be in the early stages of infancy. Whereas today’s seemingly smart algorithms are geared towards singular purposes – playing chess, matching love-hungry 30-somethings, or finding appropriate music for cooking – Jürgen’s goal has always been to create a general-purpose AI within his lifetime. His entire career has been dedicated to developing a software that would outsmart him, and though he readily admits that, as of now, the best general-purpose AI is only comparable to the intelligence of an infant animal, he is convinced that it will not be long before we develop systems that are far superior to us. At Falling Walls, Jürgen lays out the state of the art in his field of research and shares his vision of a future in which humans are no longer the crown of [More]
The universe seems incredibly complex. But could its rules be dead simple? Juergen Schmidhuber’s fascinating story will convince you that this universe and your own life are just by-products of a very simple and fast program computing all logically possible universes. Juergen Schmidhuber is Director of the Swiss Artificial Intelligence Lab IDSIA (since 1995), Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Lugano, Switzerland (since 2009), and Professor SUPSI (since 2003). He helped to transform IDSIA into one of the world’s top ten AI labs (the smallest!), according to the ranking of Business Week Magazine. His group pioneered the field of mathematically optimal universal AI and universal problem solvers. The algorithms developed in his lab won seven first prizes in international pattern recognition competitions, as well as several best paper awards. Since 1990 he has developed a formal theory of fun and curiosity and creativity to build artificial scientists and artists. He also generalized the many-worlds theory of physics to a theory of all constructively computable universes – an algorithmic theory of everything. He has published nearly 300 peer-reviewed scientific works on topics such as machine learning, artificial recurrent neural networks, fast deep neural nets, adaptive robotics, algorithmic information and complexity theory, digital physics, the formal theory of beauty & humor, and the fine arts. In 2008 he was elected member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts.
