Tips To Solve Problems With Technology

Years ago people of one country had to communicate with another country through analog telephones, fax and hand-written letters which was time consuming. With the advent of much newer technologies, it is possible now to correspond with one another conveniently and happily. The article focuses on this aspect. So read on to find out.

Solving world problems involves people. And they can use the technologies of cell phone, email and Skype to correspond, hold conversations and come to an agreement or solution.

With cell phones you can share your opinions in short and let each other know your point of views on a topic. Later you can go on Skype, going in more details. You can pursue the follow-ups of your conversations through email.

You can add people in a group on Skype; so can you can form a group in an email account such as Gmail. You can add or delete people as you like. The main idea is to work with a team of people to solve world problems.

You need to make your email and Skype accounts secure with strong passwords so that nobody is able to hack them. Your phone calls should be confidential and if you are using Viber, its password needs to be secure as well.

You may want to keep separate accounts for the important team of people so that you do not juggle up the conversations with your other less involved friends. That way you can track where you left off with your team of people regarding a world problem issue.

United States, Europe, Asia and Africa all need to contact with each other to solve their problems. So it is imperative that you have your own schedule about when to communicate with others via online meetings. It is good to send pre-written emails to your team/group to gently remind them about upcoming virtual meetings via the certain technology.

It would be a good idea to bring all of the people involved in a certain place to hold views and conversations. But virtual meetings are much better to hold reducing the cost of expenditure for stay in hotels and flights and therefore, saving time and energy.

So I would suggest cell phone, Skype and email correspondence are the best technologies to communicate with one another, discussing views in a group and finally coming to a solution for a world problem after a round of several virtual meetings.

The Advantage Of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is quite a trending topic in modern technology with many businesses adopting its use in their daily operations while others are skeptical about its relevance in the workplace. Let me show you the various benefits of AI to the workplace and how it can make your business grow as well as save time and money.

Simplification Of The Recruitment Process

Human Resource Departments are faced with the task of hiring staff which is quite daunting, frustrating and equally expensive, with personnel having to shift through a large number jobs applications for a relatively few vacancies, but this scenario is gradually becoming a thing of the past with the use of machine intelligence i.e. Artificial intelligence.

AI reduces the stress related to the hiring process through the use of the following ways:

Interesting job descriptions are written by recruiters through the use software known as Textio. This augmented writing platform compiles various job postings and puts forward to consideration suitable content to encourage the submission of more applications from job seekers.

Candidates for various job vacancies can schedule their interviews, allowing them to choose a time must suitable for them and also provides a chance to reschedule. All these are possible through the use of the Montage software.

AI powered software such as Stella match suitable candidates to jobs through the tracking of experiences, credentials and qualities sought for by employers.

Removal Of Repetitive Tasks In Daily Business Operations

Scheduling, rescheduling and cancelling meetings are quite stressful to administrative staff but the use of tools such as X.ai helps by performing these tasks diligently.

Recording, transcribing and sharing notes during meetings are also tasks which can be handled by artificial intelligence.

Improvement In Handling Issues Related To Sales, Marketing and Customer Service

Chatbots are forms of artificial intelligence that can help with support outside the company.They gain experience from real sales and customer reps and use this to assist customers in purchasing goods and services. Questions regarding marketing and customer relationship management (CRM) can also be handled by GrowthBot through the mining of data, both of the public and the company.

The Identification Of Security Risks And Protection Of Data

Financial institutions such as banks apply AI based technology to point out security risks and protect data. Examples of software which make the use of Ai in such cases include Darktrace, Exabeam and SparkCognition.

Increased Productivity

With AI handling most of the mundane and repetitive tasks at the workplace, workers are free to channel their efforts to more important tasks thus increasing productivity.

Productivity could also be boosted and monitored by machine intelligence by helping them discover areas that have high labour costs and other obstacles to increased efficiency.

Will Artificial Intelligence Replace Humans In The Workplace?

With the above examples, some individuals might be tempted to think about losing their jobs to AI powered tools since most tasks in the workplace are getting automated gradually, but their fears are unfounded as human input is indispensable despite the presence of artificial intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence basically handles tasks which could affect productivity and allows workers to be action-oriented and gives them the chance to be more creative.

Talking With Robots

Recently I visited a wholesale nursery where the planting operations had been taken over by robots. It saves time, money and helps with scarce labour resources.

In my industry, robo-solutions are becoming more popular too. You may have seen ads for providers of low-cost, automated investment advice called “robo-advisors.” They are main stream in the US and on their way to Australia.

Answer a few questions online, plug in your login information, and boom! You have an investment allocation according to your age and risk tolerance. For some investors, this is perfectly appropriate. Their situation may be fairly simple and they don’t need (or want to pay for) more complex or ongoing advice. The solution is OK for a small single-account portfolio.

But not all financial decisions can be made with if-then statements or rules that a computer program can follow. Life is hard to automate. Some months you take home less and spend more. Sometimes, things need repair or you go on a vacation. Perhaps a job changes, retirement plans change-and all of this impacts your savings, investment and retirement plan. It’s hard to imagine a website or app managing all of these scenarios because the issue is not purely numbers-it encompasses human behaviour, random chance and the hard numbers of cash flow and taxes.

On the other hand, some things are purely numbers. Take portfolio rebalancing, for example-it just makes sense to use technology to speed up the task of selling and buying when your investments drift out of balance from your target allocation. Yet even when the numbers are cut-and-dried, it helps to have a human touch to override the rules when necessary-for example, if certain investments are attractively priced, it might make sense to buy “on sale,” even if the allocation is not exact. A human manager ensures the outcome occurs as intended-and that it occurs at all. (Most individual investors do not rebalance. They don’t like selling off some winners and buy the losers, even if it is in line with their long-term goals!)

There is no question that automated apps and robo-solutions are huge drivers of innovation and cost-cutting in all industries, not just finance. It makes sense to use the best tools available for the job, like the nursery that can do the job better than a person. The same goes for your hard-earned money. Advisors should use the latest technology, but technology alone isn’t enough. A person is still needed to guide the operation, and provide advice to the “client” based on years of training and expertise.

I’ve seen several articles in industry magazines about the “robo threat” to advisors. But if an advisor’s only value is performing transactions that can be done by a bunch of ones and zeros, they are not earning their fee. Rather than seeing robo-solutions as a threat I see a huge advantage. We let humans do what humans are good at-connecting on a personal level, and using our expertise to help meet complex challenges.
