Creating the Universal Associate in Retail - Gigaom Webinar 20181212
Innovation in Retail: Creating the Universal Associate Begins: December 12, 2018 | 12:00 PM CST Ends: December 12, 2018 | 1:00 PM CST FEATURED SPEAKERS Bob Egan GigaOm Contributor Ian Hutchinson Head of Business Development - Retail Vertical, Samsung MODERATED BY Bob Egan Register Now Sponsored by Retail brick and mortar storefronts are under siege from online surrogates like Amazon. One thing remains constant: Customers yearn for interpersonal services. For retailers great customer experiences are the difference between winning and losing. What is evident is that customer experience lives and dies in the hands of the associate. Creating the universal associate to drive a creative shopping experience that is intelligent, practical and personal for customers is imperative for survival. Leading retailers acknowledge the urgency of leveraging advances in mobility and IoT to bring the new effective retail aspirations to fruition. During this webinar we will discuss three key issues: 1.      How can leading retailers modernize the shopping experience? 2.      What are the key technologies and how are they evolving? 3.      What best practices are emerging and what you should consider?

How Samsung's Spot and Trigger Solutions Customize Content for Retail 20181022
How Samsung’s Spot and Trigger Solutions Customize Content for Retail IN STORE Published Oct 22, 2018 by Natalie Zfat DIGITAL STOREFRONT, DIGITAL SIGNAGE CONTENT, IT STRATEGY, SHOPPER EXPERIENCE SHARE THIS: FACEBOOK TWITTER LINKEDIN SPICEWORKS EMAIL One of the major advantages of having digital signage over printed posters is the ability to program displays according to a specific schedule — and update it instantaneously. But perhaps one of the biggest advantages of having digital displays is the ability to personalize the experience. I recently spoke with Samsung’s Shari Sentlowitz about a pair of Samsung solutions called Spot and Trigger. The Samsung Spot solution uses a Samsung display, a motion-sensor camera and the Spot feature in MagicInfo, Samsung’s digital signage software solution. Spot “sees” what you pick up or touch and can then serve up content on the display that is relevant to what you touched. It also collects analytics to report back to the retailer. Pretty sweet!

The end of the beginning Benedict Evans 20181116
The end of the beginning November 16, 2018 In Presentations I gave this presentation at a16z’s annual tech conference last week. Close to three quarters of all the adults on earth now have a smartphone, and most of the rest will get one in the next few years. However, the use of this connectivity is still only just beginning. Ecommerce is still only a small fraction of retail spending, and many other areas that will be transformed by software and the internet in the next decade or two have barely been touched. Global retail is perhaps $25 trillion dollars, after all. Meanwhile, as companies address more and more of this with software and the internet, they do it in new ways. We began with models that presumed low internet penetration, low speeds, little consumer readiness and little capital. Now all of those are inverted. So, we used to do apartment listings and now Opendoor will buy your home; we used to do restaurant reviews and now you can get a hot meal delivered to your door. Tech is building different kinds of businesses, and so will take different shares of that opportunity, but more importantly change what those industries look like. Tesla isn’t interesting because of what it does to gasoline, but because of what it does to the car. Netflix changes TV, but so does Twitch. Finally, as we think about the next decade or two, we have some new fundamental building blocks. The internet began as an open, ‘permissionless’, decentralized network, but then we got (and indeed needed) new centralised networks on top, and so we’ve spent a lot of the past decade talking about search and social. Machine learning and crypto give new and often decentralized, permissionless fundamental layers for looking at meaning, intent and preference, and for attaching value to those.

Five lessons from history on AI, automation, and employment McKinsey 201711
Five lessons from history on AI, automation, and employment By Susan Lund and James Manyika Article Actions Share this article on LinkedIn Share this article on Twitter Share this article on Facebook Email this article Print this article History tells us that in the long run, technology is a net creator of jobs. Is this time different? Technology adoption can, and often does, cause significant short-term labor displacement, but history shows that in the longer run, it creates a multitude of new jobs and unleashes demand for existing ones, more than offsetting the number of jobs it destroys, even as it raises labor productivity. An examination of the historical record highlights several lessons. Here are five. 1. Employment in some sectors can decline sharply,

What the future of work will mean for jobs, skills, and wages: Jobs lost, jobs gained McKinsey 201711
Jobs lost, jobs gained: What the future of work will mean for jobs, skills, and wages By James Manyika, Susan Lund, Michael Chui, Jacques Bughin, Jonathan Woetzel, Parul Batra, Ryan Ko, and Saurabh Sanghvi Executive Summary (PDF–2MB) Full Report (PDF–9MB) Briefing Note (PDF–2MB) Article Actions Share this article on LinkedIn Share this article on Twitter Share this article on Facebook Email this article Print this article In an era marked by rapid advances in automation and artificial intelligence, new research assesses the jobs lost and jobs gained under different scenarios through 2030. The technology-driven world in which we live is a world filled with promise but also challenges. Cars that drive themselves, machines that read X-rays, and algorithms that respond to customer-service inquiries are all manifestations of powerful new forms of automation. Yet even as these technologies increase productivity and improve our lives, their use will substitute for some work activities humans currently perform—a development that has sparked much public concern. Play Video Video Automation and the new world of work Powerful new technologies are increasing productivity, improving lives, and reshaping our world. But what happens to our jobs? Building on our January 2017 report on automation, McKinsey Global Institute’s latest report, Jobs lost, jobs gained: Workforce transitions in a time of automation (PDF–5MB), assesses the number and types of jobs that might be created under different scenarios through 2030 and compares that to the jobs that could be lost to automation. The results reveal a rich mosaic of potential shifts in occupations in the years ahead, with important implications for workforce skills and wages. Our key finding is that while there may be enough work to maintain full employment to 2030 under most scenarios, the transitions will be very challenging—matching or even exceeding the scale of shifts out of agriculture and manufacturing we have seen in the past. What impact will automation have on work? What are possible scenarios for employment growth? Will there be enough work in the future? What will automation mean for skills and wages? How do we manage the upcoming workforce transitions?

The End of the Beginning Benedict Evans YouTube 2018116
In his now annual state-of-innovation talk at the a16z Summit in November 2018, Andreessen Horowitz’ Benedict Evans walks through where we are now in software eating the world... and how things may continue to change over the next 10 years.

What's the state of not just "the world of tech", but tech in the world? The access story is now coming to an end, observes Evans, but the use story is just beginning: Most of the people are now online, but most of the money is still not. If we think we're in a period of disruption right now, how will the next big platform shifts -- like machine learning -- impact huge swathes of retail, manufacturing, marketing, fintech, healthcare, entertainment, and more? Especially as technology begins to tackle bigger problems, in harder markets, at deeper (and more structural) levels?

Waking Up Podcast #116 - AI: Racing Toward the Brink Interview Sam Harris 20180206
#116 - AI: RACING TOWARD THE BRINK A Conversation with Eliezer Yudkowsky

In this episode of the Waking Up podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Eliezer Yudkowsky about the nature of intelligence, different types of AI, the “alignment problem,” IS vs OUGHT, the possibility that future AI might deceive us, the AI arms race, conscious AI, coordination problems, and other topics.

Eliezer Yudkowsky is a decision theorist and computer scientist at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute in Berkeley, California who is known for his work in technological forecasting. His publications include the Cambridge Handbook of Artificial Intelligence chapter “The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence,” co-authored with Nick Bostrom. Yudkowsky’s writings have helped spark a number of ongoing academic and public debates about the long-term impact of AI, and he has written a number of popular introductions to topics in cognitive science and formal epistemology, such as Rationality: From AI to Zombies and “Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality.” His latest book is Inadequate Equilibria: Where and How Civilizations Get Stuck.
