Knowledge is a human right

We see a future where the forces of AI, IoT, AR, and VR come together to propel human-computer interaction to new levels. A world where man and machine intelligence work together for mutual benefit and technology empowers people, rather than pacifies them.

In the workforce

Workforce productivity growth has slowed to a snail’s pace. The productivity growth rate in US from 2005-2014 was half that of the preceding decade. Slow productivity growth leads to poor economic growth and stagnant wages which can have serious social and political repercussions. A key to maintaining high productivity growth rates is educational attainment and development of human capital. A growing shortage of skilled technology workers is resulting in an increasing gap between job openings and hires. For example, 2 of the 3.5 million new US manufacturing jobs will go unfilled over the next decade.
