Deep Learning Will Empower Not Replace Humans, Says Artificial Intelligence World Expert Edgar Perez

Edgar Perez, author of The AI Breakthrough, Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders and former strategy consultant with McKinsey, partnering with Terrapinn Training in 3-Day Masterclass in Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

London, UK — According to The New York Times, perhaps no company embodies the anxieties and hopes around automation from Artificial Intelligence applications better than Amazon. Many people, including President Donald Trump, blame the company for destroying traditional retail jobs by enticing people to shop online. At the same time, the company’s eye-popping growth has turned it into a hiring machine, with an unquenchable need for computer science graduates and entry-level warehouse workers.

Amazon’s global workforce is three times larger than Microsoft’s and 18 times larger than Facebook’s. Only a few weeks ago Amazon took the unusual step of announcing it wanted a second home outside Seattle with up to 50,000 new jobs, starting what is sure to be a fierce bidding war to lure Amazon and the thousands of high-paying jobs it will bring to town using a combination of tax breaks and other sweeteners.

The plan is the latest surprise from Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s chief executive, who has reshaped Seattle in the more than two decades since he founded Amazon. Bezos overshadows even Bill Gates, the former Microsoft chief executive who put the Seattle area on the map as a destination for tech companies; Amazon is now the biggest corporate employer in Seattle, and it occupies 19 percent of the prime office space in the city, more than any other employer in a big American city, The Seattle Times reported.

Amazon is on the forefront of automation, finding new ways of getting robots to do the work once handled by employees. For Edgar Perez, author of The AI Breakthrough, Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, the advancement of artificial intelligence will increase productivity, create new demand from current and new customers and, ultimately, create completely new categories of jobs. “Just look at the automotive industry,” says Perez; he is a well-known international futurist, artificial intelligence and deep learning speaker who currently offers the world’s first Deep Learning programs for Fortune 500 firms and private equity groups.

Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, is a recognized futurist, keynote speaker and director of programs targeted at board members, chief executive officers and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain a competitive business advantage.

ABOUT THE AI BREAKTHROUGH
Artificial intelligence has been referred as the general ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term has indeed been frequently applied to the project of developing systems endowed with the intellectual processes characteristic of humans, such as the ability to reason, generalize, discover meaning, or learn from past experiences. Since the development of the digital computer in the 1940s, it has been demonstrated that computers can be programmed to carry out very complex tasks with great proficiency. Still, despite continuing advances in computer processing speed and memory capacity, there are as yet no programs that can match human flexibility over wider domains or in tasks requiring much everyday knowledge.

In 1945, British logician and computer pioneer Alan Turing predicted that computers would one day play very good chess. Just over 50 years later, in 1997, Deep Blue, a chess computer built by IBM beat the reigning world champion, Garry Kasparov, in a six-game match. Since then, a number of programs have attained the performance levels of human experts and professionals in performing certain specific tasks, so that artificial intelligence is now found in applications as diverse as medical diagnosis, computer search engines, and voice or handwriting recognition.

Indeed, deep learning has enabled many practical applications of machine learning and by extension the overall field of artificial intelligence. Deep learning breaks down tasks in ways that makes all kinds of machine aids seem possible, even likely. Driverless cars, better image recognition, even better movie recommendations, are all here today. Artificial intelligence is the present and the future.

The AI Breakthrough will provide a comprehensive review of the artificial intelligence breakthroughs of today and tomorrow and how these advancements will impact businesses and the human race in general for years to come.

For MMA Fighter and author Jay Islip, it was a long journey from alcoholism and contemplating suicide to this year when he decided to reorder his life discovering the person he really is, achieving his life goals.

The steps taken in that journey, and a road map for others to follow, is laid out in Isip’s first book, 10 Stacks To Success: How to Achieve Success One Goal At A Time (ISBN-13: 978-1502960269, Hasmark Publishing, 2014, 146 pages, $9.97, available in paperback and Kindle at: http://j.mp/1rWFUbf.

As a young man Isip fell into a deep Black Hole when he repeated his senior year of high school, failed in business, went deep in debt, fell into alcoholism, and thought of committing suicide. After climbing out of his personal Black Hole Isip opened a barber salon, taught barbering classes, owns a fitness gym, operates an investment relations company, and became an app developer. He also was a professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter for 12 years, squaring off against some of the greatest fighters of all time.

After a brief reflection on his past in his book, Isip launches into the 10 Stacks to Success by explaining that success is not simply a goal but a lifestyle and then revealing how to achieve success one goal at a time though proven tactics by:

• building a strong mental and physical foundation
• producing a positive and productive mindset
• defeating our mental fears
• unlocking our creativity
• changing our habits so our behavior will change, and
• changing our surroundings in order to select the forces that will influence our lives

“10 Stacks To Success is this generation’s guide to understanding that there are no limits,” explains Isip. “Unleashing the power of your own creativity can be a challenge. But there is nothing more rewarding that rediscovering all of the potential you have had inside of you the whole time. More confidence, more understanding and more freedom than ever are yours for the taking. My book is the starting point for the lifestyle of your dreams.”

Isip says his book is especially important for people who are stuck in neutral and need inspiration and direction to discover their unique purpose in life.

Amazon Top 50 Reviewer Grady Harp says of 10 Stacks To Success that “He challenges us in a very positive but stern manner, inserts enough bawdy humor to keeps us turning the pages, and in the end makes us realize that Jay Isip really cares that we become what our potential suggests.”
