Artificial Intelligence in Africa

Artificial Intelligence that can identify, describe, and count wildlife is just amazing and its so close to my heart coming from Zimbabwe. I just hope it can help with all the changes in Africa and the World.

I love this so much thanks to Researchers at Auburn University, Harvard, Oxford, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Wyoming

 Researchers develop AI that identifies and counts wildlife with 96.6% accuracy

AI-driven recruiting tech that changes the way people do their job – Beamery

I have joined Beamery as Technical Recruiter & Engineering Evangelist. I am a firm believer that online you are not a Candidate or a Customer – you are both. Companies have become very sophisticated at building relationships with their customers online, but recruiting has stayed the same.

We bring powerful analytics, marketing automation and data enrichment technology to the incredibly important, but underserved area of Talent acquisition and Recruiting. What we’re building empowers companies to treat candidates like customers. It delights people and makes them more successful at work.

Technical Recruiter & Engineering Evangelist for Beamery (Our customers like Facebook, GitHub, Criteo & Shop Direct to name a few are some of the most innovative and quality-driven companies in the world, and we can’t bring them a product that is less than brilliant so we recruit the best to build and shape our product)

I own global hiring for Beamery’s Engineering, Product and Technology (EPD) functions and I understand the crucial part that I play in helping my region to achieve success (success starts with the awesome people I hire, after all). I own relationships with our CTO and CPO, as well as our EPD hiring managers and hold a position as the subject matter expert of the local and global engineering talent market.

I know we’re a small company, growing quickly, so I understand that my role does not stop at hiring great colleagues for our EPD teams: I help to own their onboarding and assist with their ongoing engagement and success in their roles (collaborating with EPD leadership and the wider People team).

I am a guardian of Beamery culture and our more specific Engineering culture/brand and I take pride in evangelising Beamery values to our own team and to the wider world. Finally, I take ownership of being the maestro of our own product.

If you would like to find out more about what we are doing or looking at joining our team please get ion contact with me.

We have the following live jobs at the moment: All Openings

Getting a Job in Artificial Intelligence

What Skills Do I Need to Get a Job in Artificial Intelligence?

Automation, robotics and the use of sophisticated computer software and programs characterize a career in artificial intelligence (AI). Candidates interested in pursuing jobs in this field require specific education based on foundations of math, technology, logic, and engineering perspectives. Written and verbal communication skills are also important to convey how AI tools and services are effectively employed within industry settings. To acquire these skills, those with an interest in an AI career should investigate the various career choices available within the field.

Skills and Abilities Helpful to Careers in AI

The most successful AI professionals often share common characteristics that enable them to succeed and advance in their careers. Working with artificial intelligence requires an analytical thought process and the ability to solve problems with cost-effective, efficient solutions. It also requires foresight about technological innovations that translate to state-of-the-art programs that allow businesses to remain competitive. Additionally, AI specialists need technical skills to design, maintain and repair technology and software programs. Finally, AI professionals must learn how to translate highly technical information in ways that others can understand in order to carry out their jobs. This requires good communication and the ability to work with colleagues on a team.

Educational Requirements for Careers in Artificial Intelligence

Basic computer technology and math backgrounds form the backbone of most artificial intelligence programs. Entry level positions require at least a bachelor’s degree while positions entailing supervision, leadership or administrative roles frequently require master’s or doctoral degrees. Typical coursework involves study of:

  • Various level of math, including probability, statistics, algebra, calculus, logic and algorithms.
  • Bayesian networking or graphical modeling, including neural nets.
  • Physics, engineering and robotics.
  • Computer science, programming languages and coding.
  • Cognitive science theory.

Candidates can find degree programs that offer specific majors in AI or pursue an AI specialization from within majors such as computer science, health informatics, graphic design, information technology or engineering.

Types of AI Careers

A career in artificial intelligence can be realized within a variety of settings including private companies, public organizations, education, the arts, healthcare facilities, government agencies and the military. Some positions may require security clearance prior to hiring depending on the sensitivity of information employees may be expected to handle. Examples of specific jobs held by AI professionals include:

  • Software analysts and developers.
  • Computer scientists and computer engineers.
  • Algorithm specialists.
  • Research scientists and engineering consultants.
  • Mechanical engineers and maintenance technicians.
  • Manufacturing and electrical engineers.
  • Surgical technicians working with robotic tools.
  • Medical health professionals working with artificial limbs, prosthetics, hearing aids and vision restoration devices.
  • Military and aviation electricians working with flight simulators, drones and armaments.
  • Graphic art designers, digital musicians, entertainment producers, textile manufacturers and architects.
  • Post-secondary professors at technical and trade schools, vocational centers and universities.

From its inception in the 1950’s through the present day, artificial intelligence continues to advance and improve the quality of life across multiple industry settings. As a result, those with the skills to translate digital bits of information into meaningful human experiences will find a career in artificial intelligence to be sustaining and rewarding.

Data Science & Big Data Analytics New Budget Season 2015

With the economy slowly improving, IT leaders are more optimistic that the corporate purse string will loosen up in 2015, and they’re eager to bring new technologies into the world in addition to just keeping the lights on. Computerworlds annual forecast survey of IT executives shows that budgets are indeed continuing to make a nice recovery. Some 43% of the 194 respondents said that they expect their IT budgets to increase. That’s up from 36% in last year’s study.

This year’s average anticipated up is 13.1%, and overall, the expected changes in IT budgets reported by all respondents average out to 4.3 %. IT is expected to gain kick up spending on security tools, Customer-facing technologies and information exchange/collaboration technologies that comprise the so called SMAC stack – social and mobile tools, analytics systems and cloud computing.

The one trend that we can expect is not only the amount of data increasing, but also a great boost in the market, which will flaunt the solutions for Data Science & Big Data Analytics. Data Science & Big Data Analytics is expected to follow in the footsteps of cloud computing because, just as cloud computing has become conventional, it is expected that Data Science & Big Data Analytics will also become mainstream. However, the basic question that arises is usually centered on how long it will take for solutions to become practical as well as sustainable for traditional firms.

With that in mind if you have any further questions which may help in shaping the budget process for your team please contact me on bigdatasolutions@opusrs.com or call me on 02074481407 / 07881351363
