Broadly speaking, bullying is ongoing unwelcome behavior meant to harm someone who is unable to respond. The common denominator in most cases of bullying is one person or group asserting power over another.

Skilling Up for the AI Revolution - Willtellect - 2019 Virtual Perspectives

For most enterprises, success hinges on employing talented software developers and IT personnel. But the software landscape is evolving quickly.

Another part is targeting your efforts to make sure you are skilling up in the right areas.

In this session, Wintellect’s cofounder and Chief Learning Officer, who has personally trained more than 10,000 developers at Microsoft, presents a technical overview of machine learning and AI, two areas which are producing some of the most exciting innovations in software engineering today – and areas that can be leveraged in ways that you might not expect.
