When I dipped my toe into the ocean that is “the future of work”, I had no idea what I was about the encounter - and what it was about to inspire.

My introduction was about 18 months ago, when an executive at my company started writing about machine learning. Today, that term fits right into our daily marketing lexicon, but at the time, I put a note in a draft article that the term “machine learning” was too technical for marketers. 

I stand by that early 2014 assessment, but also acknowledge it as ancient history. In just a few short months, machine learning is no more technical than SaaS was a few years prior. We’ve accepted it, adopted it and are watching it transform the way we work.

In the same 18 month timeframe, I’ve also seen myself get increasingly passionate about the future of work. We are in the middle of a tangible shift in our collective mindset about what is required for an organization to be fully prepared for and to embrace a new way to work.

As a technology organization, my company CI&T is naturally committed to that aspect, including AI, and of course machine learning that I mentioned above. We are also strongly committed to another principle of the future of work - the promotion of women as senior leaders and entrepreneurs.

This commitment brought us to an opportunity with our partner Google and the International Trade Center (ITC) to lead the Women Vendors’ Forum and Exhibition (WVEF) Tech Challenge 2015. This challenge calls on software developers, IT and graphic specialists to help create a digital platform that helps corporations identify and include more women-owned businesses (WOB) – especially from developing countries – in their supply chains. 

The Tech Challenge is part of this year’s Women Vendors’ Forum and Exhibition – ITC’s annual event connecting WOBs to markets – to be held in São Paulo, Brazil on September 2-3, 2015.  The event boasts a call to action to help one million women-owned businesses enter international markets by 2020.  An aggressive goal, but imperative to help all audiences, WOBs and corporations alike, be prepared to face the challenges the future of work will bring.

“The stuff that people are doing here is the future.”
-+Geoffrey Hinton, Google Distinguished Researcher

At Google, Neural Networks are behind much of the cutting-edge research in Machine Intelligence that enables speech recognition, computer vision, machine translation and more. Check out an article by the +Toronto Star, which highlights some of the history and promise of Deep Learning, and how it is finding ways into applications used by millions.

Love Hugh Laurie clips. Impressive...a British actor playing an American speaker who is faking a British accent! His American accent is so convincing!

Hello! I thought this would add a little humor to the daunting task of learning English and reducing a foreign accent. You just can’t predict pronunciation from spelling!
 
Why American English is so hard to learn…
1.   The bandage was wound around the wound.
2.   She needs to polish the Polish furniture.
3.   The man decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
4.   There was a picture of a bass on the bass drum.
5.   The dove dove into the brush.

In 2006 CNNMoney.com published an article nominating the "10 People Who Don't Matter". Zuck was there and we now can see one of the most stupid business analysis ever made. Take a look:

"10) Mark Zuckerberg
Founder, Facebook

In entrepreneurship, timing is everything. So we'll give Zuckerberg credit for launching his online social directory for college students just as the social-networking craze was getting underway. He also built it right, quickly making Facebook one of the most popular social-networking sites on the Net. But there's also something to be said for knowing when to take the money and run. Last spring, Facebook reportedly turned down a $750 million buyout offer, holding out instead for as much as $2 billion. Bad move. After selling itself to Rupert Murdoch's Fox for $580 million last year, MySpace is now the Web's second most popular website. Facebook is growing too - but given that MySpace has quickly grown into the industry's 80-million-user gorilla, it's hard to imagine who would pay billions for an also-ran."

Genius, right? :)
