“Columbus was not the first person to discover America, but the last.”  Pedro Domingos 
One such discovery that is largely responsible for the increase in astonishing developments in the field of AI is called “Deep Learning” (DL). DL is a specific form of Machine Learning (ML) and, thus, a subfield of Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is typically applied to a broad range of technological advancements, such as speech recognition, image processing, restoration and detection, natural language processing and analytics. 
Since 2015, searchterm Machine Learning is globally more popular than the term Artificial Intelligence (See picture below). This development coincides with major developments in GPU processing power necessary for DL, advanced in computer clustering (e.g., hadoop) and DL technologies becoming widely available (e.g., tensorflow). 
Tech pioneers (e.g., Elon Musk) and great minds (e.g., Stephen Hawking) have uttered their rather dark visions for the consequences of this rapid development for mankind. 
Reason enough to focus this week’s issue of || NERD WORDS for HR || on the topic of DL and its implications for human resource management and people operations. Your core take away: Do not underestimate the speed of these developments and really try to get a basic understanding of these technologies. Soon enough, we’ll either use them or become scared of them.
Enjoy this weeks || NERD WORDS for HR || and feel free to share and discuss the content.
