Bonus: Future of Work - Will Machines Take Our Jobs?

Anthony Goldbloom is the founder of Kaggle, a data analytics and predictive modeling startup that helps solve problems for companies like NASA, Ford and Deloitte. He shares his views on how machines will impact the world of work.

Over the past 60 years, we’ve witnessed the disruption of industries such as manufacturing (GM, Foxconn) and warehousing (Amazon) through the advent of advanced industrial robots. We’re now beginning to also see how knowledge work will be impacted by advances in machine learning. Recent examples of the Associated Press elisting software to write sports news, and Capgemini using IBM’s Watson to automate resource management certainly highlight the impact that this technology could have. However, it’s encouraging to know that there are things that machines can’t do. Ultimately it will be our ability to deal with novel situations that will set us apart.

Through recruitment, training and consulting, Timeo-Performance provides solutions for increased performance of companies, teams, and individuals.

As busy professionals, our schedules are often filled to the brim with meetings and tasks to complete. We can get so caught up with work that we might even forget our all-important lunch and power through dinner as well. Alas, we can only do so much given the 24 hours we have in a day. While time management is vital, being productive is another matter in its entirety.Enter time batching.
