Men vilka färdigheter kommer då att efterfrågas 2017?– Tekniker som specialiserar sig på AI, maskininlärning och algoritmer kommer att ha det bra de kommande åren, säger Gene Richardson.I dag är det många företag som sitter på så pass stora mängder data att de har svårt att till fullo använda informationen.– Varje område som it, marknadsföring och beslutsfattande anställer idag dataanalytiker för att hålla sig informerade om vad som händer, säger Richardson.Mjukvaruutvecklare kommer inte längre att kunna förlita sig på att endast ha expertkunskaper inom ett språk eller en plattform.– De måste också förstå, och ha erfarenhet av, rollen som devops, designer, QA, DBA och analytiker, och på så vis ha flera roller.
Konsultmäklarna har redan tagit över en stor del av it-konsultmarknaden – med sitt koncept att teckna ramavtal med kunder, och sedan plocka in underkonsulter för respektive uppdrag.It-konsultmäklarna har den senaste tiden tagit hem en helt ny typ av affärer, utanför det traditionella it-området, nämligen inom teknikkonsulting.Så istället för att hitta systemutvecklare och it-konsulter som kan göra jobbet måste de hitta helt andra typer av kompetenser, till exempel inom ljus eller avfallshantering.Senaste exemplet är Keyman som helt nyligen vann en upphandling inom teknikkonsulting hos Danderyds kommun.– Vi har fått våra första förfrågningar därifrån, säger vd:n Mats Mårtensson.Och det handlar om allt ifrån hitta arkitekter till tekniker som har kompetens inom ljus i offentliga miljöer eller avfallshantering.
It s a good time to be a fan of science-fiction movies.In that vein, we ve compiled a list of some of the sci-fi stories that currently have big-screen adaptations in various stages of development, so you can get an early peek at the next big things hitting theaters.This award-winning 2014 novel followed a group of four female scientists — including a biologist, an anthropologist, a psychologist, and a surveyor — who set out to explore a mysterious region known as Area X after the previous 11 attempts to survey the area resulted in strange, terrifying results for everyone involved with the expeditions.Written and directed by Ex Machina filmmaker Alex Garland, the big-screen adaptation of Annihilation has an all-star cast that features Academy Award winner Natalie Portman Black Swan as the biologist and Jennifer Jason Leigh The Hateful Eight as the psychologist, as well as Gina Rodriguez Jane the Virgin , Tessa Thompson Creed , Oscar Isaac Ex Machina , and David Gyasi Containment .The Forever War by Joe HaldemanAnother Nebula Award winner, The Forever War tells the story of a soldier recruited to battle an aggressive alien species light-years from Earth in a two-year conflict, only to discover that traveling to and from the battlefield has actually caused several decades to pass on Earth.
EA seems poised to contest the possibility of its rival 2K holding a monopoly on licensed basketball games.Last year came and went without a console installment of EA s NBA Live series, which skipped its traditional October release date.At the time, the publisher stressed that it was still committed to the long-running franchise — and now we may have some confirmation that a new game is indeed on its way.Documentation from the South Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee reveals that EA has sought classification for an upcoming title named The Drive to NBA Live, according to a report from Polygon.While further information regarding the release is sparse, it seems fair to assume that this title will serve as a replacement for the lack of an NBA Live installment in 2016.NBA Live only made its return to consoles in 2013, after a four-year absence following the release of NBA Live 10.
The malware, which a recent Mac OS update released by Apple is detecting as Fruitfly, contains code that captures screenshots and webcam images, collects information about each device connected to the same network as the infected Mac, and can then connect to those devices, according to a published by anti-malware provider Malwarebytes.It was discovered only this month, despite being painfully easy to detect and despite indications that it may have been circulating since the release of the Yosemite release of OS X in October 2014.It's still unclear how machines get infected.

But when these biases start impacting our decisions in the workplace, it becomes a problem.We got approached by sales managers from companies we aren t currently working with who want to use our software for their teams, said cofounder and chief executive Ilit Raz in an interview with VentureBeat.Founded in 2016, the Techstars Atlanta graduate launched an artificial intelligence-powered software last year that plugs into companies existing platforms, such as Atlassian Jira, Salesforce, and Workday.The idea, according to Raz, is to rifle through a given company s existing data in order to suggest real-time corrective action that can reduce discrimination at work.One interesting thing that we see in the industry is what people think when women return from maternity leave, said Raz.Pricing is still relatively low, with tiers for companies and individuals.As an example, Joonko will look at employee records to determine whether they have been working productively, and if so, whether they are given the right tasks and offered the right opportunities.
ServiceMax CEO discusses the importance of field service maintenance and Industrial Internet of Things.In an interview with CBR, ServiceMax CEO Dave Yarnold discussed the importance of Industrial internet machine maintenance for both businesses and manufacturers, using the company s recent acquisition by GE as an example of the opportunity to integrate its industrial internet vision.ServiceMax develops field service software solutions, in addition to providing solutions for social and analytics to be delivered to any mobile device via the cloud.Now that the CEO has been very public in saying they want to build a top tier software company, focused on the industrial internet segment, we had this opportunity to become part of GE.The acquisition aims to provide GE Digital with new capabilities in the $1 trillion market for industrial service, enabling customers to immediately gain more value from their assets and find greater efficiency in their field service processes.This, Mr Yarnold argues, is a trend seen across manufacturing.

Shares in Nintendo are down almost 6% at in trading on the Japanese markets after officially unveiling the details of its newest console, the $299 Nintendo Switch, at the time of writing.When the Switch was first teased back in December, Nintendo took a similar beating on the markets — analysts were concerned that the Switch's central gimmick, a TV console that you can disconnect and use as a portable gaming device, wasn't enough to differentiate it from the more powerful Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One consoles.Traders are already skeptical of Nintendo: The Wii U, Nintendo's previous console was a notorious flop, selling only 13 million units in its five-year lifespan.For comparison, the original Wii sold 101 million units in its lifetime.And "Super Mario Run," the debut of Nintendo's most famous franchise on the iPhone, is a smash hit in terms of downloads, but that hasn't translated into long-term revenue, and the stock has suffered.So while gamers may be excited for the Nintendo Switch, it seems that the markets have passed judgment and found the company's strategy lacking.If Nintendo can't prove them wrong, the gaming legend will be facing new shareholder pressure to change its course, and potentially even take its focus away from building hardware at all.Here's the chart of Nintendo's share price on Friday in Tokyo, when it held the Switch event at 1 p.m. local time, as shown:NOW WATCH: Nintendo finally showed off their hybrid Switch console — here are all the ways you'll be able to play itLoading video...
According to a new study, a vampire bat species that typically feeds on native birds has turned to sucking the blood of humans at night, likely due to human encroachment.In the study, researchers analyzed guano from hairy-legged vampire bats in northeast Brazil s Catimbau National Park to see how they responded to man-made changes to their environment.How would the species behave in a situation of scarcity of wild birds and an increase in the availability of domestic animals?wrote the study s authors.Could the bat be induced to include mammals in its diet?What they found in the feces, however, was even more batshit: DNA fragments indicated the bloodsuckers regularly consumed both chicken and human blood.

The Department of Defense DoD has put out an open call on the Small Business Innovation Research SBIR program website in search of proposals regarding an environmentally friendly way to deal with spent training rounds.In the posting, the DoD notes that the US Army manufactures and subsequently fires hundreds of thousands of training rounds at multiple ranges around the world.Such rounds range from 40mm grenades and 120mm mortars to shoulder-launched munitions and 155mm artillery rounds.The projectiles and sometimes even the cartridge casings are either left behind on the surface of the ground or become embedded several feet in the earth.Unfortunately, the material used to create the spent casings and projectiles can take hundreds of years or more to break down naturally.Some even have the potential to corrode and pollute nearby water and soil.
When the best-selling truck gets updated, plenty of people take notice, and so the 2018 Ford F-150 looks set to get attention at the Detroit Auto Show this coming week.Keeping the aluminum-alloy body that proved so controversial – and, indeed, still is fairly divisive among truck fans – the 2018 F-150 gets a revamped front and rear design, in addition to new engine options including a turbo-diesel.From the XL up to the Limited version, the F-150 gets new grilles, headlamps, and front bumpers.The Lariat F-150 Sport Package gets twin bars finished in the same body-color.At the rear, the tailgate is now more sculpted, and there s a bold F-150 legend stamped in the center.Six new wheel designs are on offer, running the gamut from 17-inches through to a hefty 22-inches.

The HTC Vive team has been seriously busy since launching its excellent VR headset last year.It announced a slew of new hardware and software solutions at CES 2017 including the holy grail – wireless PC-powered virtual reality.There s no news on when an Intel solution will hit shelves yet, but the good news is that third-party TPCast will be selling its solution by the middle of 2017.This comes with a 6,000 mAh battery that powers the Vive for up to two hours and will cost $249 on release.This new product is a little smaller than the Vive controller s disc and is built from the ground up to work with Steam VR tracking.Adding it to a baseball bat, for example, gives real heft the controllers just can t provide.
Our records show that you ... stop shouting sirFormer staffers at a Cardiff-based car rental company have been sentenced for conspiring to steal customer information to sell to ambulance chasers.The three data thieves were employees of Enterprise-Rent-A-Car sold the details of tens of thousands of the company's customers and sold them on for hundreds of thousands of pounds.The details were then used by a number of companies who unlawfully contacted members of public in ambulance chasing cold calls about personal injury claims, in a scheme that ran for almost two and half years.Andrew Minty, Jamie Leong and Michelle Craddock, who at various times worked for Enterprise-Rent-A-Car in Cardiff, Wales, or Aldershot, England, all pleaded guilty at Winchester Crown Court this week to conspiracy to commit offences under the Data Protection Act.Minty was fined £7,500, which he has to pay within two years or face three months' custody.
