In this week’s Brain Boost, Jobs and AI, sports on Twitter, and Whole Food’s new affordable markets.
Jobs and AI
The Financial Times has released an extensive new report on career management in age of robotics, artificial intelligence, and automation. Based on the research from this report, career success –especially for non-developers– will increasingly rely on one’s ability to be creative and to develop personal relationships skills (like managing people).
Then, one must have the ability to translate those capabilities and apply emerging technologies to business and human needs. For example, how to integrate AI systems for business and personal use. You can read the research at this link.
NFL on Twitter
Twitter has successfully won the right to be the first social network to stream full NFL games. You might remember a couple of weeks ago that we reported that Facebook was vying to stream Thursday night football. Instead, Twitter has won this auction.
They will stream 10 Thursday night football games in full via the app with no extra payment or registration required everywhere in the world.
One thing you can take away from this is that sports is an undeniably powerful marketing vehicle.
Whole Foods is launching its first 365 market next month. In these new marketplaces, there will be fewer choices and the stores will be smaller. It’s also going to be much less expensive than the full-scale Whole Foods Markets.
They’re trying to compete as more chains dedicate space to organic food and, when I’ve spoken with investors in the San Francisco Bay Area, health food businesses are growing very quickly. So, this is a great time to look for job openings or to launch a healthy food business.
