Talk: Helping Workers Help Themselves

CSIG (Cognitive Systems Institute Group) Talk — Nov 1, 2018 - 10:30-11am US Eastern

Talk Title: Helping Workers Help Themselves: Thinking in 4Tfor Al Applications

Speaker: Professor Terri Griffith , Santa Clara University

Abstract: We have excellent advice on how to reinvent jobs and apply automation within company boundaries, and even how to think about reinventing our personal work and careers given advances in automation. An added aspect to this is how we coach ourselves to think about the optimization of technology and practice throughout all aspects of our lives and work.

We see in 3D. Can we Think in 4T? The 4Ts:

Target: project and/or task goal
Talent: people are the glue holding pieces together
Technology: everything from basic tools (even furniture!) to hard automation, robots, and machine learning
Technique: the processes pulling together the work of the talent and technology

Kids are growing up with technology, but perhaps not with the foundations of how to be thoughtful about the use of that technology. Employees have almost complete access to the  personal technologies at work, but again, perhaps not the foundations of how to think about the applications of technology at work. The self-employed, given less access to formal  professional development, may similarly come to contract work with access to technology, but not frameworks for its most effective use.

This webinar is to help us think about these individual frameworks and how to share them inside and outside our organizations.
