TED Resident Muhammed Idris is leading a team of technologists, researchers and refugees to develop Atar, the first-ever AI-powered virtual advocate that guides displaced people through resettlement, helping restore their rights and dignity. “Getting access to the right resources and information can be the difference between life and death,” Idris says.

Brunei’s death-by-stoning penalty for gay sex comes into force

The BBC reports, and my heart and brain ache.

“Brunei’s decision to make gay sex an offence punishable by stoning to death has resulted in international condemnation. But the south-east Asian country is implementing new laws including this one from today. “You wake up and realise that your neighbours, your family or even that nice old lady that sells prawn fritters by the side of the road doesn’t think you’re human, or is OK with stoning,” one Bruneian gay man told the BBC.”

Companies use AI to recruit employees and identify their future potential

Finding a job used to start with submitting your résumé to a million listings and never hearing back from most of them. But more and more companies are using tech-forward methods to identify candidates. If AI is the future of hiring, what does that mean for you? Technologist Priyanka Jain gives a look at this new hiring landscape.

This is the side hustle revolution

Traditional educational systems are failing. It´s time to look to the hustle! Podcaster and marketer Nicaila Matthews Okome sheds light on the hustle.

”Past generations found a company to work for and then stayed there for decades. But today, we rarely stay in the same job (let alone on the same career path) and we don’t rely on a single income stream. The tools and resources are out there for us to do our own thing, and more of us are going with the entrepreneurial spirit — even if it’s on the side of a traditional job.”

Building a company people enjoy working for

Most companies operate on a set of policies: mandated vacation days, travel guidelines, standard work hours, annual goals. But what happens when a company looks less to control and more to trust?

Patty McCord, the iconic former chief talent officer at Netflix, shares the key insights that led her to toss the handbook out the window.

Guide to the Málaga Film Festival 2019

Your guide to Malaga Film Festival 2019

The 8-day event celebrates the very best of Spanish cinema and provides a feast of films, some of the best on screen, as well as a lot of cinema-related activities. This year is the 22nd anniversary of Malaga Film Festival, an event in the city that draws crowds in their thousands.

Diversify your brain: Get in with the App crowd!

So, when I´m not working, I try to go to this Meetup group: Málaga Ideathons

The groups mission is thus: “Apping” Malaga’s Life. Participate on an event focussed on creative ideas to improve life in Malaga by the use of apps and smartphones that could eventually lead to start-ups by the participants. A great opportunity to network for entrepreneurs and creatives.”

OK, it´s true, the technology, and the techno mumbo jumbo vernacular is way beyond my skill set, but, for the moment, technology is nothing without people who generate the ideas, and solve the problems. In light of this, I would check them out. Go on, get out of your comfort zone, and get ”Apping”.

You could also propose that the group investigate a problem you experience in your day-to-day life, or an issue at work that could be solved with an App.

However, if that´s not your cup of tea, why not check out an Inglés Málaga Meetup event instead.
