RPA ToolsElon Musk said startup Neuralink, which aims to build a scalable implant to connect human brains with computers, has already implanted chips in rats and plans to test its brain-machine interface in humans within two years, with a long-term goal of people “merging with AI.” Brain-machine interfaces have been around for awhile.
The threads are small — less than 6 micrometers — because, as Musk noted in remarks delivered Tuesday night and webcast, “If you stick something in your brain, don’t want it to be giant, you want it to be tiny.” Once implanted, according to Musk, the chip would connect wirelessly to devices.
Both Musk and Hodak spoke about the potential for its company’s neural implants to improve the lives of people with brain damage and other brain disabilities.
Automation still conjures up robotic bosses and impersonal workplaces. It's becoming clearer that it is much more complex than that, especially as the Internet of Things comes to the forefront. Blue Prism co-founder and CTO David Moss explains why…
RPA ToolsWhile many people believe automation eliminates jobs, in my experience, it’s simply not the case.

RPA ToolsChange Starts From Within
Those inside the BPO industry have often marketed their outsourcing prowess as an advantage for businesses looking to reduce simple transactional work and focus on higher value relational, strategic and innovative work.

The change that customers expect from their BPO providers is also now the kind of change the BPO industry must embrace for itself.
