The Future of Artificial Intelligence 2019

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and associated technologies will be present across many industries, within a considerable number of software packages, and part of our daily lives by 2020. Simpliv has also predicted that by 2020, AI will become one of the top five investment priorities for at least 30 percent of Chief Information Officers. Global software vendors are after this new gold rush. Unfortunately, though the promise of new revenue has pushed software business owners to invest in AI technologies, the truth is that most organizations do not have skilled staff to embrace AI Summit.

The trust deficit in the “capabilities of tech-enabled solutions” that exists today will vanish in the next 10 years, states In Ten Years: The Future of AI and ML. Over the next decade, we will witness a radical shift from partial mistrust and skepticism to complete dependence on AI and other advanced technologies. Most AI-powered applications are consumer facing, which is another solid reason for mainstream users to overcome the trust barrier over time. With more exposure and more access to technological solutions for their daily business, the Citizen Data Science community will pave the way for a new-technology-order world.

Artificial Intelligence is getting deeper into our daily lives, but this is not as scary as many may think. With Artificial Intelligence, we have seen things getting better and easier for us but this change does not stop at homes. Today many businesses are coming forward to use AI in new different ways so as to engage their customers, drive sales and make business processes simpler. In short, the demand for Artificial Intelligence development services will go high in the coming years.

We have already seen how Facebook was using AI to improve its ad campaigns as well as seen the effective use of AI-powered chatbots. So, what’s next? What should we expect out of Artificial Intelligence in the new year to boost business success?

The Future of AI

In the post-industrialization era, people have worked to create a machine that behaves like a human. The thinking machine is AI’s biggest gift to humankind; the grand entry of this self-propelled machine has suddenly changed the operative rules of business. In the recent years, self-driving vehicles, digital assistants, robotic factory staff, and smart cities have proven that intelligent machines are possible. AI has transformed most industry sectors like retail, manufacturing, finance, healthcare, and media and continues to invade new territories.

More Advanced AI Assistants

With the introduction of Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, and other kinds of similar devices, consumers were seen hugely benefitting from AI assistants in their homes. Such AI assistants can be used to get a weather report, to play a song, to switch off the lights in the room, to look for some information online, and much more.

The new AI-powered technology is being embraced by the consumers. Based on the study of Adobe Analytics, it is said that around 71 percent of people who owned smart speakers used them at least once in a day while around 44 percent of smart speaker owners who admitted using it multiple times in a day. So in 2019, we will be able to see more of advanced AI assistants helping homes and workplaces as well as influencing other areas of life.

Today, users make AI assistants do basic tasks like search for information online or play a song. In the coming years, the changes will be big as AI assistants will be seen doing bigger tasks. They will be able to offer individualized experienced to the users just by recognizing the voice of the users.

So instead of just speaking to AI devices like we do today, there will soon come a time where you will be talking to your TV or refrigerator.

Job Changes

Artificial Intelligence has been instrumental in helping businesses to reach efficiency in what they do. For the same reason, job creation will be negatively affected by AI. With AI helping businesses to simplify different processes, certain positions filled up by humans will be taken off. The process of reskilling and retraining workers will become very crucial in the coming years with the increase of AI presence. The process should start as early as possible so that the people will be skilled and ready enough to take the advanced work.

Where can I learn about Artificial Intelligence for free?

There are a few places you can learn about Artificial Intelligence Summit. For example, many of the top tech universities in the world have uploaded content you can watch for free on sites like YouTube.

You could also consider taking some of their online courses on such topics.

But if you want to sit down and complete an actual course, here are some of the best courses that are available at the moment.

Artificial Intelligence Summit by Simpliv

This AI Summit will evaluate the nature and scale of changes that AI could bring about in various sectors such as retail, enterprise, consumer and commerce. It will scrutinize the opportunities and transformation that AI could bring about in development and digital platforms.

Simpliv will offer the opportunity for a vivid and thoughtful exchange of viewpoints among panel members, who will be a bright mix of:

  • Those who are pioneering path breaking innovations in the field of AI
  • Leading brands that are at the forefront of AI
  • Well-established leader
  • Tech evangelists
  • Unicorns, and
  • Keenly watched startups.

Visitors at the AI Summit will include AI managers, angel investors, decision makers, innovators, startups, designers, developers, Data Analysts, Managers and Scientists, and brand managers.

12 Steps to learn Excel and become awesome @ work in 2019

Like many marketers, I have a bit of experience with Microsoft Excel. I’ve used it to organize events, plan meals, and sort data — but I don’t have nearly the advanced knowledge I wish I did.

And thanks to those limited skills, I’m constantly subjecting myself to the tedium of updating my spreadsheets manually.

Like me, you’re missing out on a world of Excel training courses that could teach me how to automate my reports and save hours of time.

When I asked even my most Excel-savvy colleagues where they picked up their knowledge, they told me things like, “I mostly learned from colleagues and friends,” or, “When I have a specific question, I ask someone or search on Google.” Fair enough. But as a beginner, I probably have a few too many Excel questions to rely on colleagues — or Google — to answer every one.

Obviously, everywhere you look this week, you find advice on how to do better this year.

Well, you don’t have to wait for a new year to become awesome at your work, any day is new year for the rest of your life.

So, today I want to share 12 steps to learn Excel and becoming awesome. But first I have a secret to confess…,

I think becoming awesome in Excel useless.

What we really want is, to become awesome in our work. Since we spend a lot of time using Excel (and other office software), knowing how to use these better can have a huge impact on how we do our work.

In that spirit, lets look at 12 steps to learn Excel so you become awesome in your work.

1. Learn everyday

Curiosity, humbleness & open mind can go a long way in making you awesome. So in order to become awesome in our work, we need to learn everyday. There is a wealth of free, useful & well designed information on net on almost any topic. For Excel, I suggest going thru our archives, category pages on Excel, Charting, Quick Tips, or the Learn any area of Excel page.

For more specific focus, check out Excel Beginner or Advanced Excel pages too.

2. Volunteer & Improve something at your work

No matter how good something is, there is always scope for improvement.  I am sure you have similar situation at your work. So pick up any single process, report, model or procedure & improve it using readily available tools like Excel. It is one of the easiest ways to learn Excel. For example, you could improve the financial dashboard that gets emailed every month or track your training (L&D) better.

3. Help a colleague

The funny thing with knowledge is that, the more you share it, the more you gain. No wonder, when we think of very knowledgeable persons, we imagine teachers & authors. And in any workplace, your knowledge determines how awesome you can be.

So go ahead and help a colleague in need. Share what you know and see the magic.

4. Join a forum & solve a problem

Forums are a great place to find new problems & challenge yourself. Go ahead and contribute in a forum that focuses on your area of work. For Excel, I suggest checking out Forums.

You will learn new things & the best part is, you are going to help a total stranger. The sense of satisfaction you get is unmatched.

5. Get a book

Despite the amount of information & variety available online, books continue to have a sense of magic. The moment you open a book, your mind opens a new world. So go ahead and indulge in a book or two this year. Learn something & then apply it to your work. See how far you can go.

For Excel & related books

6. Participate in a Contest

Contests are a great way to learn new things, experiment & win something cool. While finding a contest for your exact work area might be difficult, you can find several contests on Excel & other common office software. I am planning to run a few contests this year and I encourage you to participate in at least one of them.

7. Play with an unknown feature

Many of us continue to use software, tools without questioning our practices. For example, despite using Excel quite a bit, I rarely use Review Ribbon. I don’t know many of the things in there. I am sure you too have such gaps. This year, pick one such thing and play with it. Learn what you can do with that feature, do a bit of research, and if possible share your knowledge with people in your work life. If you are not sure what to pick, may I suggest Power Query? It is an incredible tool packed right inside Excel. Check out this intro and get started.

8. Replicate an idea from other industry to your work

Despite all the negativity in the world, we continue to see shining examples of innovation, hope & prosperity. Often, these are simple ideas implemented with finesse. You too can watch elsewhere for inspiration & copy the ideas to your work. For example, you can watch New York Times for interesting visualizations and copy the ideas for your weekly report. Or you can subscribe to blogs in a different industry so that you can get fresh ideas.

Related: Visualization projects.

9. Join a Newsletter or Subscribe to a Blog

While learning from other industries can give you new ideas, learning about your own industry increases your knowledge. So go ahead and join a newsletter or subscribe to a blog. Consume their content regularly and apply these ideas to your work.

For Excel users, I recommend joining our newsletter, Debra’s blog, Excel Jet or any site featured in our Excel links.

10. Jump to YouTube

YouTube continues to be a great way to learn new things. You can find instructional videos on any topic & learn from bite-sized clips.

For Excel users, check out our YouTube channel, ExcelisFun, MrExcel Podcast, Debra’s channel

11. Join a Training Program

One of the best ways to learn & become awesome is to join a class. So this year, invest in a training program that helps you in your work.

To learn Excel & how to use it for your work, I recommend our Excel School, VBA Class programs.

12. Believe that you are Awesome

One of my favorite quotes is,

Whatever human mind can conceive, it can achieve.

Napoleon Hill (in his book Think & Grow Rich)

So the most important aspect of becoming awesome is to believe you are awesome. No books, videos, blogs or contests can make you awesome if you don’t believe that you can be awesome.

Those are my 12 steps to learn Excel & become awesome, what about yours?

So those are my 12 ways to become awesome. What about yours? How are you planning to be awesome this year? Please share using comments.

What is PMP? How important is it for a career in project Management?

Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is an industry recognized credential for project managers. PMP demonstrates the experience, education, skill and competency required to lead and direct projects. PMP is the most sought after certification administered by Project Management Institute (PMI), USA.

What is PMP?


Project Management Professionals are imperative in every industry. The demand is in terms of the skill requirements which vary between different industries and geographies. As per 2014 survey report by PMI, there will be huge opportunities for practitioners of Project Management. As companies recruit people from various cultural backgrounds, the need for project managers with a standardized set of skills increases. These project managers would be expected to undertake projects on system reorganizations, turn strategic vision into tangible goals, and ensure effective and agreed outcomes, while balancing various project constraints.

Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification is a qualification program overseen by the Project Management Institute (PMI). In the computer and information technology (IT) industries, the term project management refers to a methodical approach to software development through defined stages called initiation, planning, executing, controlling and closing.

The process for becoming a certified Project Management Professional involves a review of prior education and work experience followed by a written examination. Holders of the certification may use the designation “PMP” after their names in professional correspondence and publication. Each holder of the certification must adhere to a formal code of professional conduct and accumulate a certain minimum amount of relevant experience over a period of three years starting January 1 after successfully completing the examination process.

Project Management Professional is the second of three formal credentials administered by the PMI. The first or basic level is Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®), which qualifies the holder for work as part of a project team. The third or highest level is Program Management Professional (PgMP®), which certifies that the holder is competent to function as the leader of a team.

Why PMP is Important for Project Manager?

1. It exposes you to the current standards of project management, best practices, techniques, and the trends. It stands as an ideal goal as you can bet for PM postings across varied professional fields namely the Business processing, commerce, research, and, more.

2. It enables you to show better performance as you are exposed to new technologies and tricks that would assist you in managing the projects. The set standards for the PMP exam are higher as compared to other projects which will help you with an actionable set of best practices.
3. It has become the must-have credential today. Most of the hiring companies are engaged in appointing the certified PMs alone for their firm. The firms have realized the significance of certification as it helps to win the business.
4. It highlights your personal drive to stay abreast of the knowledge, credentials, and, skills. Thus, it helps you to stand out in the competitive job market. Moreover, you can host a party with your friends for being a star in the group.
5. It confirms that you comprehend the global language of project management. It readily connects you to the professionals, organizations, and community across the world. A great network potential helps to move on the career ladder at a faster rate.
6. Another important benefit is you become the game changer. You have the choice to join a firm as you are competent enough to gain multiple opportunities. And you may evaluate the team members for a particular assignment and create a forward-thinking team.

7. It will make you love the profession as you get more challenging opportunities. As PMP demands experience to get through the exam, it readily validates your PMP skills and opens the door for accepting more challenging projects.
The details are as follows:

  • China reported the lowest average monetary waste on projects (7.6 percent or $76 million per $1 billion)
  • Canada (7.7 percent or $77 million per $1 billion)
  • India (8.1 percent or $81 million per $1 billion).
  • Australia reported the highest average waste on project spending at 13.9 percent or $139 million per $1 billion.

Dear Friend,

Have you ever wondered why most of the self-improvement programs or books on the market or even on your bookshelf never work?

Have you noticed that there are some tools that might seem to work for a few people but not for you?

Have you watched the movies “What the Bleep Do We Know?”, “The Secret”, studied the “Law of Attraction”? Have you attended numerous seminars on self-help and positive thinking? Yet, have you been able to achieve permanent & radical transformation in your life?

The Self-Development field is a multi-billion dollar industry and bookshelves are loaded with self-help books. Then why is it that there are millions of people struggling with health problems, financial insecurity, unfulfilled relationships, etc?

Breakthrough your struggle!


Have you wondered why you have worked so hard to make your life work, and strive so hard to make more money to pay your bills, to make your relationships more harmonious, and to gain better health, but you just can’t make that breakthrough?

Is there always something missing?

You wonder why, but never find the answer!

Let me make something very clear for you right now:

Here is why…

The majority of popular books or programs on self-improvement only touch the surface of your challenges or frustrations, NOT the subconscious toxic beliefs that cause the problem to begin with!

For example, if you have financial problems, you will be advised to take the expensive wealth building seminars that teach you a bunch of money making strategies. BUT, the fact of the matter is that your financial problems are not solved by tools or techniques to make money, but by something deeper and more fundamental.

If you have relationship problems, people will advise you to go to relationship experts who can give you tons of tips and strategies to improve your relationship. BUT you will find that the fulfilling loving relationship that you have dreamed of is still out of your reach.

That’s because your relationship problems are only symptoms, not the fundamental causes.

Spread your wings and fly …. Effortlessly

When those fundamental issues are resolved, EVERYTHING CHANGES!

Your financial situation starts to change; you start attracting money and abundance into your life.

Things that you’ve always wanted start to show up in your life EFFORTLESSLY.

You start to feel true joy from your work.

You start to attract the right and fulfilling relationships.

You find yourself more energetic, passionate, and enthusiastic.

Life will seem so easy and effortless; everything will flow naturally.

If you wonder how you can align yourself to live an amazing life, you have come to the right place.

Make magic happen!

This program is the result of over 30 years studying mind science and consciousness-expanding practices. You will learn how to finally identify the dis-empowering subconscious beliefs that are running your current life by default and start designing your exciting life; the life you dream of having where anything is possible. Join me on this journey of exploration and manifestation by hitting the “green button” above to start learning now and I’ll see you in the course.

“Since i have been doing your course I feel a much happier person. My friends commented, that my eyes are shining and I seem like I am in love. I am constantly smiling, and feel fearless and totally positive and at ease with myself. Thank you very much Chris”


“Thank you Chris for creating this course. I love your voice, the length of each lecture, and all the things I’ve learned so far…… I just did my first Yoga Nidra following your audio recording and I loved it!”

Bridgett Pope
