Killexams : Training And Education Beyond The Obsession With STEM

This is the fifth and last installment in a series on how the economy can cope with the economic and financial strains of aging demographics. The first in this series laid out the problems. You can read it here. The second and third installments took up the answers offered by immigration and the increased participation of the existing population in the workforce.  You can read these here and here. The fourth installment explained the potential relief according by trade.  You can read it here. This last installment turns to the training and innovation needed to facilitate the relief offered by trade. For a more nuanced and detailed look at all these matters, there is my accurate book Thirty Tomorrows.

Trade can help alleviate the pressures of this country’s aging demographic by allowing the economy to source labor-intensive products from abroad. It can only work, however, if the United States has something else to sell the world in return. Right now, the country has huge comparative and absolute advantages in producing high-value products. Its workforce is better educated and better trained than those of the emerging economies, where the United States would source its purchases of labor-intensive products. That workforce also has much more capital and technology at its disposal.

When it comes to innovation, three supports present themselves: profits and cost-effective regulation, for those who would finance the effort, and education for those who would direct it. The profits part is most straightforward. Firms need a surplus to pay for the research and development (R&D) and make the other investments that allow them to implement innovations. Though there are no guarantees that profitable firms will steer their surplus in these directions, it is a sure thing that the lack of a surplus will starve such efforts for funding.

Regulation’s effect is more complex. Overpowering and ill-considered rules hurt by cutting needlessly into profits. Perhaps worse, they also discourage innovation by making it difficult or otherwise unprofitable to invest in new techniques. When, for instance, EU rules imposed price controls on European drug companies, their R&D efforts quickly fell compared with their American counterparts, which had no such controls imposed on them. In less than two years, European firms were spending 24% less on research than the Americans. Regulation plays an important social role, of course, but capricious, high-handed and needlessly burdensome rules kill innovation while cost sensitive, well-considered applications can encourage it.

Education has still more complex considerations. These days, the emphasis on innovation seems to lie with the so-called STEM disciplines, science and technology, engineering and mathematics. There can be little doubt that engineers and scientists are an essential part of the innovative process, but they are far from sufficient in themselves. For that the economy needs a wide array of people with a great variety of perspectives, many far from technically inclined.  It is these people who see economic and market applications that scientists and mathematicians, focused as they are on their own concerns, would almost surely miss. When, for instance, defense work and NASA in the 1960s emphasized miniaturization, it was non-technical sorts, not the NASA scientists who saw the numerous commercial applications that made miniaturization into a major economic driver for decades. This is just one example.  The narratives of many of these applications show that and exclusive focus on STEM can actually hinder the discovery of market and production applications. These might best come from people educated in entirely different disciplines, many not even part of a university education.

If the history of innovation suggests that diverse studies from art to theology can provide as much impetus as STEM to the process, a high-value based economy also needs trained workers.  These are not necessarily university graduates but rather are the people who can operate and repair the equipment that typically embodies innovation. The computer would have helped industry a lot less if its workers could not operate it or were insensitive to its physical frailties, two failings that remain a severe problem in developing economies, not in the lab or the classroom, of course, but very much so on the job site or construction project.

In this respect, the United States could learn from other developed countries. The American emphasis on college for everyone has not only neglected the kind of sophisticated vocational training needed to sustain a high-value oriented economy, but it has also discouraged people from seeking such training by implicitly denigrating its value. Countries like Germany, for instance, stand in contrast.  It has active apprentice programs to produce highly trained workers that can readily apply innovative techniques. The United States could gain by following this example. But apprenticeships alone will fail to cover the need. A high-value economy also must include support for retraining. The more innovative an economy, the less skills learned as a youth can serve an entire working life. In retraining, sadly, there is limited good news.  Germany’s efforts to re-arrange its apprentice approach for mid-career retooling have largely failed. Retraining programs in the United States and other developed economies have as well or at best have met with only limited success.

A survey of retraining programs across developed economies, both public and private, does however reveal some pointers on how to meet this need. Public programs in this country frequently fail because they mix workers seeking retraining with disadvantaged youth. Without judging either group, it is clear that these different people have different motivations, as well as different advantages and disadvantages. Lumping them together serves neither group well. In contrast, the best results occur when employers get involved, either by running the training program for themselves or by working with educational institutions to tailor the program. In contrast to publicly run efforts, these have clearer objectives, and, by offering a job at the conclusion (if not a promise, then a good probability) they instill a strong motivation for those involved to pay attention and finish. Increasingly, schools in troubled parts of the country have embraced variations on this approach, partnering with employers to tailor curriculums. The economy needs more such efforts to develop the trained workforce it will increasingly require.

This discussion provides but a sketch of what is clearly a complex and nuanced matter.  The other installments in this series have done the same. Still, they supply a sense of where the country must go to cope with the otherwise severe economic and financial problems that aging demographics will bring. No single answer will do. Increased participation alone cannot meet the need without targeted immigration, and both will fail to protect living standards fully if the country fails to make the adjustments necessary to use trade as a means of supplementing its demographically imposed weaknesses. A combination of answers, however, does have a good chance of protecting this country’s living standards even in the face of these otherwise destructive demographic trends.

Killexams : WeLearn workshop series targets L&D improvement, data management

WeLearn, a learning and development solutions provider, announced June 20 a series of three workshops in partnership with educator Charles Chaffin aimed at improving corporate L&D programs and helping employees manage information flow at work.

The three workshops tackle subjects including information overload and helping employees manage data; refining education and training strategies; and addressing “employees’ relationship with the information age,” WeLearn said.

Steady flows of information in the modern work environment can overwhelm employees, Chaffin said in a statement; “That’s where these workshops come into play, to provide organizations and their employees with the tools needed to strategically manage information and to educate better along the way.”

Employers are investing in data and analytics without the workers to take advantage of those investments. A 2021 EY survey found that nearly 1 in 5 executives said their organizations were short on analytics and information technology talent even as 53% placed data and analytics tech at the top of their near-term investment priorities.

Internal training may be a natural alternative to recruitment, but a accurate Forrester and Tableau survey of decision-makers found that only 39% offered data training to all employees. All the while, a lack of data literacy has led to real costs for employers, according to a 2020 report published by Accenture and analytics software firm Qlik.

These findings come in spite of other research that shows employees actively seek out employers that will provide training opportunities; a 2021 survey by Monster found that 45% of employees said they would be more likely to stay with their current employer if they were offered skills training.

Recruiting practices also may be a factor. In June, a report by ManpowerGroup subsidiary Experis found that employers seeking IT skills may be overlooking qualified candidates, failing to consider those with experience in the startup space or those who have experience through in-house training, apprenticeships or other training models.

Killexams : New TDWI Research Report Explores Modernizing Organizations to Support Data and Analytics

SEATTLE, WA, July 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TDWI Research has released its newest TDWI Best Practices Report: Modernizing the Organization to Support Data and Analytics. This original, survey-based report provides best practices research about how successful companies are organizing to execute to win with analytics.

The author of the report, Fern Halper, is vice president and senior director of TDWI Research for advanced analytics. She explains how new leadership and organizational structures, new roles, and new paradigms such as the data mesh are influencing companies and their analytics practices.

In the report, Halper points out that “although it is still early for many new technologies, roles, offices, and other organizational constructs, TDWI research suggests that they can provide a top-line impact to those companies that use them in modernizing their data and analytics environment.”  

The report discusses in detail the effects of a variety of trends in analytics, such as the move to the cloud and the renewed interest in effective data governance, as well as the many factors involved in data modernization, such as data fabrics and MLOps.

Report Highlights

This comprehensive report reveals several key findings:

  • Organizations that measure top-line impact of their analytics are as much as twice as likely to report other positive characteristics (e.g., 62% report a sound data structure versus 25% who didn’t measure impact)
  • Over half (55%) of respondents said their top challenge with automated analytics tools is in assembling skilled teams
  • Fewer than 15% of respondents are currently using a data mesh, although 20% plan to use one in the future and 30% support its principles

The report also includes case study examinations of how several enterprises are organized and what effect different team structures have on their operations. The report concludes with 12 best practice recommendations to help readers determine which leadership structures will work best in their organizations.

This research was sponsored by Alation, Carto, Dataiku, Denodo, Qlik, SAP, and Snowflake.

Killexams : Mendi Powers Brain Health Education Training Game

What would we see if we peer under the door of the world? A chaotic and confusing landscape where stability is craved by most and experienced by few? The human experience offers the conundrum that with progress comes inevitable adjustment. Sometimes it seems like progress streaks across our lives, leaving a sense of unsettledness. Yet, those pieces of acquired knowledge that comfort our lives hold incredible value to our existence.

2007 brought our planet the iPhone.

Little did the populous know the deep-seated impact of this rectangle window to the world. A novelty at first and a necessity now – the iPhone has completely changed the wiring of the human experience allowing moment-by-moment chronicling of our lives. If this device we treasure could change our behaviors, habits, and patterns of interactions, could we create another track to support our journey forward?

Technical heroes from the engineering and research domains are asking if that window to the world can look inward. Can we bring the rich oxygen of life to the 3 pounds within our heads to bring balance, calm, and a sense of ‘I’ve got this?’

The world doesn’t appear to be slowing down, and the technologists and medical fields are asking these questions to benefit all of us.

Brain health, while a relatively new concept among the masses, will, one day, be as common as attending to that rectangle in our palms. Dr. Lauren Silbert, Ph.D., a neuroscientist from Princeton University, believes that the question of brain health is about neurofeedback and the technology to deliver the information to consumers in pursuit of agency over one’s experience.

Silbert notes that the industry and the public need to understand how to navigate through the science and that each of us starts at a different point in time. Some understand neurofeedback's role on them, while others come to brain training from the periphery. “Each consumer starts at a different place,” she says. “To start with a plot of land, you must begin by building a foundation. If you start with a structure already in place, you build on top of that.”

She contends that neurofeedback brain training is akin to a fully built house primed to become a mansion. “The technology is solid, and the science is well-established,” notes Silbert. “The difference in consumer experience results from scientific education and societal understanding.”

The benefits of neurofeedback training continue to emerge, noting positive impacts on mood regulation, issues of attention, and sleep patterns.

The challenge, to date, like so many technologies on the precipice of impact, is equitable access that isn’t just obtainable for the privileged and resourced but the masses. Brain training centers have dotted many cityscapes over the last decade, but they are costly, requiring both time and money to realize the full benefits of the technology.

Education and the schools that house young students are particularly at risk of failing to meet long-term solutions for their faithful consumers. Levels of anxiety in students across the world appear to be unrelenting, and out-of-school and high-cost solutions are less than realistic. The tenets of education, technology, and gaming might invite light to provide a solution.

Engineering Powers Opportunity

Rickard Eklof, an engineer by trade and an explorer fueled by curiosity, wondered if there was a way to collapse technological and social barriers to put the power of neurofeedback brain training in the hands of more people.

Eklof’s efforts embrace the similarities to the iPhone but delineate from the catch-all device, believing that the technology isn’t the issue. Instead, he ascertains, it’s a lack of consumer education related to the benefits that have historically stunted the adoption of the brain training technology industry. “The issue is that no one has been there to show people what the technology can do and how this sector can benefit their respective lives,” he says.

Eklof is the co-founder of Mendi, infusing the brain health revolution spurred initially by games structured to build and sustain memory structures. Eklof, and his team, took a slight ‘left’ turn and focused on portability and behavioral health technology that revealed an updated way of developing the sense of agency Silbert maintains is key to sustainable brain health practices.

Most consumer neurofeedback brain training is based on measuring electroencephalography (EEG) or brainwaves. However, functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) neurofeedback detects changes in the brain's local blood flow and oxygenation in response to neural activation.

“The critical aspect of this [fNIRS] technology is that it measures the brain's response to activation changes, allowing for much more efficient and precise neurofeedback training,” states Eklof. “We focused on what consumers have been accustomed to – portable devices, smartphones, apps, and gamified experiences.”

While the engineer turned explorer discovered a path to equitable opportunities for brain training outside of centers, he knew he needed an evangelist to translate the science into something tangible.

Moha Bensofia, an enigmatic lightning bolt of a personality, is known across the Nordics as an investor in people first and solutions second. Bensofia recalled the first time he experienced Mendi, claiming, “Even if I don’t understand 90% of what you’re presenting, this investment still makes sense.”

Bensofia became the first investor and immediate evangelist to communicate the opportunity throughout his network. It was clear to Eklof and the team that Mendi needed a ‘Bensofia’ to also partake in the day-to-day operations to deliver their ‘iPhone of brain training’ to market.

Bensofia had not explored the idea of leading the Mendi team. He reached out to his close friend and business confidant, Daniel Ek, the founder of Spotify, for advice. Ek’s advised Bensofia to listen, be a constant learner, care about people and your employees, and squarely focus on the Mendi user.

User Stories

Bensofia took the reins of the CEO position, determined to listen first and communicate with users to understand how the technology impacted them.

Several years before the glitz of opportunity in Stockholm, Bensofia found himself teaching grammar to young students in Libya before continued anxiety and stress altered his personal and professional course landing him back in Sweden. “It was easy to evangelize the power of the technology because I was finding relief from my post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I was a believer and saw the advancements from the inside.”

He set out speaking to numerous users of Mendi, hearing tangible reports of improvement from people of all ages struggling with depression, anxiety, and focus at home, school, and work.

Taking Notice

The Mendi team is built to scale, servicing multiple markets and needs. The education sector, especially research institutions of higher learning, including Stanford, Princeton, the University of Gothenburg, and the University of North Dakota, have engaged in ongoing research with Mendi.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Human Research Program (HRP) is structured into five Topic areas called Elements. One of the areas includes Human Factors and Behavioral Performance (HFBP). The HFBP Element focuses on managing various risks to astronaut cognitive performance. Mendi was brought in to play a central role in NASA’s research to understand better the impact space can have on the brain.

Terry E. Rector, Senior Project Leader, and Ph.D. Candidate with the Aerospace Corporation believes the research with Mendi has the potential to open a window into the capabilities of the mind.

“Research into neurofeedback performance training is particularly relevant for gaining new and renewed knowledge and developing cognitive training protocols to mitigate risk. It helps to analyze performance decrements and adverse health outcomes resulting from sleep loss, circadian desynchronization, and work overload (neuroplasticity),” states Rector.

Rector recognizes how Mendi’s portability is providing NASA the ability to examine the causes and contributing factors in changes in cognitive performance in space. “A decline in decision-making abilities and memory recall can significantly impact health outcomes for astronauts and missions.”

Gemma Fisher M.Ost, founder and director of the Formula Health Consultancy and a fixture on Netflix’s sensation Drive to Survive, works with Formula 1 racers, asserting neurofeedback brain training is pivotal to the health and safety of the sport.

“We know that the prefrontal cortex is a crucial region of the brain for decision-making, planning, and attention; therefore, optimizing the function of this area is critical. Brain health is the key whether you are an athlete in high-performing sports, a ‘corporate’ athlete making high-stakes business decisions, or just attempting to operate at your best.”

Next Chapter

Bensofia is determined to speak with as many of the 20,000 users who currently train with Mendi better to understand the ‘why’ of brain training. “Every story I hear about a young person struggling with anxiety who finds personal control and agency through our efforts—that’s what it is all about.”

The CEO is measured when discussing the road ahead for a technology ushering in science to a curious user base. “We must continue to be curious, and we need to ask questions. If we can do these things, we put ourselves in a position to positively impact current and future astronauts, athletes, the young at heart, and those struggling with the chaotic pace of life.”

Bensofia becomes reflective when the question of impact is posed. “I used to think about investments as transactional and with an endpoint. Mendi’s result isn’t just professional; it is personal for me,” he says.

“I am still the guy who was teaching less fortunate children grammar in Libya. However, today my behavior and perspective have changed from the typical investor spending days ‘chasing’ deals to chasing innovation that can educate, Boost life for others and that I can be proud of.”

A smile graces Bensofia’s face reflecting on Fisher’s charge that Mendi’s contributions are opening up opportunities for her famous clients and patients to build mental resilience. “If we can positively impact professions as the bounds of the human experience, think of what we can do for young people as they begin to take the reins of their lives,” exudes Bensofia.

NASA’s Dr. Alan Pope, Ph.D., believes that technologies like Mendi will be commonplace in due time, stating, “Some people might be skeptical now, but within ten years, no one will be.”

Bensofia realizes that the portability of Mendi and utilization of that rectangle window to the world position this accidental CEO on a path to create a long-lasting impact for the next generation. “Education about the power of neurofeedback creates the opportunity for brain health to transition from a novelty to a necessity,” he says.

The iPhone packaged the particulars of the human experience in a portable device. Now it’s Mendi’s turn to open the window to our minds inward, ushering in a new era of personal health and agency to combat the wondrous and sometimes unpredictable world we inhabit.
