NearShore and The Georgia Institute of Technology are coming together to utilize Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to bridge the gap between corporate America and academia. By moving our Corporate Headquarters to the Coda building on Georgia Tech’s campus, NearShore is creating a collaborative environment for world renown scientists and its clients to work together on solving real world challenges.
Applying Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to real world problems is challenging due to a constantly changing business climate, rapidly changing technology and limited access to leading intellectual resources.
This past month, NearShore Technology partnered with Georgia Tech LBAT (Language for Business and Technology) to provide fourteen study abroad students the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the Yucatán history and culture. This five-week program began in Mexico City and ended in NearShore’s headquartered city, Merida. The students were each paired with a NearShore employee to work on daily projects that provided a comprehensive overview of environmental, economic, social and cultural development of the region. Required to only speak Spanish, the students interviewed government officials, village locals and spent a day teaching at a village school. With exposure to High-Tech industries, direct interactions with local residences and gaining a better understanding of the region’s culture, the LBAT program creates an invaluable experience that NearShore Technology is privileged to be a part of.
Rory Brown, Chairman of Goods & Services Partners, Shares How to Develop a Culture That Embraces Technology and Change
Technology is developing at a rapid pace. However, employees, particularly in industries not generally associated with high tech, can be reticent to embrace change.
Often people operate under a “good enough” mentality. Unless they are suffering, status quo is the path of least resistance. They reason that if the technology and processes they’ve been utilizing work, why change?
But this sort of thinking is extremely limiting for the organization as a whole, as it prevents it from successfully keeping up with competitors that have created a culture that embraces technology and change. These forward-thinking companies, those that recognize technology’s ability to empower employees, will almost always pass their technophobic, change-phobic peers. So in today’s hypercompetitive business environment “good enough” is never good enough. But how can an organization change its culture, and go from ignoring technological innovations to embracing them?
As he beams proudly over his VirtualBank, Rory A. Brown seems to scatter the long shadows of failed e-businesses that got it wrong where his dot-com is getting it right. Only a year old, VirtualBank already has $300 million in assets — growth that dwarfs that of stodgy, traditional bank startups. Even better, Brown expects VirtualBank to be profitable in the first quarter. Money magazine, Brown says to make his case, named VirtualBank the best online bank. “It’s working brilliantly,” Brown enthuses.
A cold putter couldn’t keep Gary Nicklaus from advancing to the weekend in the U.S. Senior Open and extending a family gathering here in this famous university town.
Playing in just his fourth event this year since rejoining the professional ranks, Nicklaus birdied his final hole Friday for a one-over 71 at the Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame to comfortably make the cut at one-under 139. He was tied for 31st place when he holed out from two feet at the ninth, his final hole of the day. The top 60 and ties advance to the weekend.
Gary Nicklaus’ second go at competitive golf took another notable turn when he qualified for the U.S. Senior Open Friday at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Fla. The Senior Open begins June 27 at Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind.
Jack Nicklaus’ son, Gary, whose own son GT was his caddie, birdied the final two holes to post a score of 70 that got him into a three-man playoff for one spot with Lance Ten Broeck and Don Bell. Gary won the playoff on the first extra hole.
A second-round 71 in the books and a weekend spot secured at his first U.S. Senior Open, Gary Nicklaus left the interview area on a blazing-hot Friday afternoon and found his family. That’s when Barbara Nicklaus, genial matriarch of golf’s First Family, started subtly nudging her son toward contention. Now that the pressure was off, she noted, he just might fire a third-round 60 on Saturday.
