Comments20/07/2017 #5 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorGood advice @Rebecca Matias. The organization that I worked for before I retired had the live chat feature. I found it useful as it helped expedite addressing any issues.
Since then I have used live chat to resolve my own issues with my wireless carrier etc. and have had success with it.20/07/2017 #4 Lisa 🐝 GallagherGreat advice @Rebecca Matias. I had a major scare the first weekend of July, I went to pay my husbands HC Insurance premium and online it stated it had been terminated. I thought, HOW?! Well I accidently over paid mine and his was late. I pay them separately because we both have individual insurance. Anyhow, I clicked on live chat and within 15 mins, the payment was made with her and she immediately re-instated his insurance. That's great customer service and I find myself using live chat more now for various reasons but it can be very frustrating if the person appears to be an automated bot. Real people, now that works!20/07/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergGood advice here, Rebecca, you make some excellent points -- such as "too much automation can be counterproductive in marketing." How true.
I've shared this buzzing blog post in the following hives: "Customer Service" and "Sales" and 'Communication and Marketing". Keep buzzing!

It is a widely known fact that animals can have a positive effect in reducing stress levels and aiding in the treatment of those suffering from Anxiety disorders, Autism, and depression. Studies from Harvard University going back to the early 1980s support the idea that dogs have enormous health benefits for people, both mentally and physically. Pets have been shown to lower blood pressure, improve recovery from heart disease, and also improve people’s psychological well-being and self-esteem. Add to that the positive effect of therapy dogs, which have long provided assistance to humans in the outside world by offering a calming presence and a personal support guide. The latest evidence is for children with autism, who have been found to greatly benefit from assistance dogs.

Comments18/07/2017 #1 Harvey LloydI have to admit when i first started reading about these new "teams" and the many variations of "self managed" i thought maybe i had been in a cave. My mind was telling me this cant work but trying desperately to not let the generation gap form, i followed the process with some wanting.
The harder i tried the crazier the comments, posts and outcomes were. Of course the hype turned out to be greater than the outcome.

Comments18/07/2017 #9 Nicole ChardenetThere's a more hopeful take on the future of AI by an AI engineer who had to face a life-threatening lymphoma to realize what was really important in his life...love and his family, which a robot simply can't comprehend. It was in Wired Magazine's newsletter this morning.
Michio Kaku makes a good case against AI going all HAL 9000 on us in his book "The Future of the Mind". Anyone else get into neuroscience at all? I wonder if it may be almost impossible for AI/robots to completely replace us...or take over the world...because maybe there's an element to our 'wetware' that may never be replicated in AI. Hell, scientists can't even agree on what 'consciousness' is or define it to everyone's agreement, As Wired's cancer survivor points out, if the human had beaten AlphaGO he would have felt a wild range of emotions and pride; the computer beat him and didn't care. Deep Blue beat Kasparov and it didn't care either; Kasparov was deeply affected by losing and would have been deeply affected had he beaten it. I'm also not convinced robots & AI will ever replace *all* jobs, or at least as many as predicted, because I've been hearing the predictions since I was in high school (over 35 years ago now) of how they're going to do all the work and we'll live lives of leisure. Hasn't happened yet and *still* no one can answer the question I had when I was 18 or 19: "And how are we going to live these lives of leisure if we're not getting paid anything? How will that economy work?"16/07/2017 #1 David B. GrinbergGreat share, Vincenzo, on the fast evolving emergence of AI. This is a fascinating topic and is just the proverbial "tip of the iceberg" for what we can expect in the years and decades ahead when AI is fully integrated into almost all aspects of society. It will be a brave new world indeed once AI is merged with robotics, quantum computing, more powerful machine learning, and newer versions of the Cloud.

- 25/06/2017Killer Whales Are Hunting Boats and Stealing Their Fish http://bit.ly/2tItjev
Pods of killer whales are pursuing the fishing boats of Alaska and stealing the fishermen’s halibut catches, leaving the crew with no fish and out of thousands of gallons of fuel attempting to escape from the fish thieves. This isn’t a new development that killer whales or orcas, can learn to recognize boats and then steal their catches.

Comments25/06/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWell who stole first?
The whole concept of 'stealing' is anthropomorphizing in the most insidious way.
Everything in the world is just there for humans to make use of at our sole discretion. Therefore smart orcas, simply making use of a round-up of fish are the 'bad guys?'
Nope. All sorts of mammals and birds capitalize on our hoarding ways, not to show us a lesson, but because nature loves efficiency. It there is a bunch of stuff in one place, no wild animal is going to respect our concept of 'property' and go looking somewhere else for the scraps left to them.
They are going to figure out how to take from the cache of resources.

Comments13/06/2017 #2 Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBAThis is indeed very controversial. International reggae artists Burning Spear summarized how some people feel about him.
The core message is "How can you "discover" a place where people are already living." So he lied to Queen Isabella when he said he "discovered" all of these places.
Not much is known in the west about Zheng He (1371–1433 or 1435), formerly romanized as Cheng Ho. He was a Chinese explorer under the Ming Dynasty. Here are the places he explored https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zheng_He#/media/File:Zheng_He.png Never heard anyone speak of him discovering these places.
Ibn Battuta (Abū ʿAbd al-Lāh Muḥammad ibn) was a Morrocan explorer and scholar. "Ibn Battuta visited most of the known Islamic world as well as many non-Muslim lands. His journeys included trips to North Africa, the Horn of Africa, West Africa, the Middle East, India, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, and China." Again he is not really known in the West. I learned about him in Dubai. Never heard anyone speak of him discovering these places either.
The lesson for executives and other leaders is don't take credit for something you have not done.
