Artificial intelligence has opened new language acquisition pathways for learners and teachers. These programs allow any learner, anywhere, to receive personalized lesson plans and feedback. When part of a classroom (virtual, physical, or mixed), AI language learning programs help teachers assess student progress.
Algorithmic stock trading—aka "algo-trading"—uses machine learning algorithms to make stock market trades faster than a human could, calculating the best time, price, and amount to trade in an instant.
An e-learning course enables people to learn material at their own pace, with no instructor present. Machine learning programs optimize learning with supervised, unsupervised, semi-unsupervised, and reinforcement methods.
While individuals use these courses the most, the highest-paying customers include higher education institutions and corporations.
Of note, although the term is often used interchangeably with "distance learning" or "virtual classroom," these terms refer to a learning environment overseen by a professional educator. E-learning is self-directed.
The process of economic forecasting is at heart the process of attempting to predict the future of an economy. Generally this refers to the economy of a country, but it may also refer to municipalities within a state.
Employee onboarding refers to the process of welcoming and training new employees. This includes setting up their details in the HR system, providing them with security clearances, training them in the company’s policies and the duties, and integrating them into the social life of the company.
Survey after survey shows that effective onboarding is crucial to employee retention and company reputation, but few organizations set up a well-planned, data-based system.
Mobile app development entails more than just crafting an attractive and simple user interface (UI) for established customers; it involves designing a secure app that uses very little RAM yet is compatible with different devices. A particularly well-developed app should also be capable of scaling to meet customer demand as your company grows.
MFA stands for multi-factor authentication. It refers to the use of more than one means of identification to access a secure software system. Usually, MFA security uses a combination of traditional security measures, like keycards and passwords, and biometric measures, like retinal scans.
A subset of MFA security, which uses two, three, or more authentication measures, 2FA security uses two.
Banks, credit unions, credit card companies, insurance companies, stock brokerages, investment funds, and more must report their activities to government regulatory agencies. Following financial crises in the late 2000s, regulatory compliance has become stricter and more onerous on financial services companies like those listed above.
From the stricter need for reporting and the massive amounts of data generated by financial institutions, the regtech industry has sprung up, combining regulatory reporting and big data technology.
Remarketing campaigns show ads to people who have visited a business's website or downloaded one of its apps. Remarketing identifies people who have shown interest in a company in order to prompt them to recall the business, increasing the odds of them converting.
Cities produce large amounts of waste, from litter to sewage; managing this waste is a constant challenge for municipal authorities. Waste management as part of the smart city model involves the use of IoT technology and machine learning to run and to optimize city waste management.
Smart farming refers to the use of connected technology and artificial intelligence in the field of agriculture. It is also referred to as smart agriculture, agritech, agrotech, or even agro technology. However, the terms agritech and agrotech include the fields of horticulture and aquaculture.
