Although AI research has been ongoing for decades, the past few years have seen
a leap in practical innovations, catalyzed by vast amounts of digital data, online
services, and enormous computing power. As a result, technologies such as
natural-language understanding, sentiment analysis, speech recognition, image
understanding, and machine learning have become accurate enough to power
applications across a broad range of industries.
Massive amounts of data are being created driven by
billions of sensors all around us such as cameras, smart
phones, cars as well as the large amounts of data across
enterprises, education systems and organizations. In
the age of big data, artificial intelligence (AI), machine
learning and deep learning deliver unprecedented
insights in the massive amounts of data.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos spoke about the potential of
artificial intelligence and machine learning at the 2017
Internet Association‘s annual gala in Washington, D.C.,
“It is a renaissance, it is a golden age,” Bezos said.
“We are solving problems with machine learning and
artificial intelligence that were in the realm of science
fiction for the last several decades. Natural language
understanding, machine vision problems, it really is
an amazing renaissance.” Machine learning and AI is a
horizontal enabling layer. It will empower and improve
every business, every government organization, every
Artificial intelligence (AI) leads the charge in the current
wave of digital transformation underway at many global
companies. Organizations large and small are actively
expanding their AI footprints as executives try to comprehend
more fully what AI is and how they can use it to capitalize
on business opportunities by gaining insight to the data
they collect that enables them to engage with customers
and hone a competitive edge. But, while AI may indeed be
the frontier of enterprise technology, there remain many
misconceptions about it.
Part of the confusion stems from the fact that AI is an
umbrella term that covers a range of technologies —
including machine learning, computer vision, natural language
processing, deep learning, and more — that are in various
stages of development and deployment. The use of AI for
dynamic pricing and targeted marketing has been in use for
a while, but actual AI computing where machines think like
humans is still many years from becoming mainstream. T

Baldwin County Public Schools has built a curriculum that includes preparing students for the world of intelligent machines and empowering them to participate in the global community through language acquisition. The district sought a technology-based solution to provide students with the opportunity for long-term language learning.
The top clients of enterprise language learning companies consist of global companies that recognize the value of multilingual employees. While companies understand the necessity of language learning, there is room for improvement in incorporating language learning into corporate culture. This report looks at what companies are doing in the realm of language learning, to understand what best-in-class organizations are doing, and to provide businesses aspiring to be truly successful on a global stage with strategies for incorporating language learning into their business model.
Forbes Insights and Rosetta Stone surveyed 214 executives around the globe to find out if and how companies are training their employees to speak and work in more languages and what impact that training has on both the employees and the company. In addition, the narrative is rounded out with in-depth interviews with executives and experts.
MarketBridge, a leading global provider of sales and marketing services, surveyed 493 senior and upper management-level business professionals in a variety of functional roles at leading international corporations to learn more about their company's language-learning needs.

Time and resource allocation for language programs
has been shrinking while the need for multilingualism
only grows. It is critical that our students remain
competitive on the global playing field. As the
benefits of a multilingual society become clearer,
parents insist that language learning is important for
their children’s future success.
However, our current education system still lacks the
resources to provide all children the opportunity to
develop the skills that will prepare them to succeed in
an interconnected world. Global competence and
language skills are no longer just nice to have—they
Making your talent global-ready is key to your organization's future. A big part of global readiness lies in language and cultural skills. Knowledge of another language and culture builds bridges to customers and colleagues, and studies show that the ability to connect delivers measurable business impact. Building effective language and cultural learning programs is not difficult, but first HR must uncover the need - which often remains hidden from plain view.
Technology plays an increasingly significant role in how we help language students develop the skills they need to be successful in today's competitive, global workplace. The benefits of integrating technology into the classroom can be seen throughout the learning experience.
In October 2013, Getting Smart partnered with Rosetta Stone to release a report called “The Next Generation of
World Language Learning.” The goal of the report was to create a vision for world language learning that acknowledged
its role in global competency and to frame the vision inside broader shifts to personalized learning and blended
instruction. Pointing to the potential of educational technology, we advocated for accessible, high-quality world
language instruction for all students—from elementary through high school.
Foodservice managers who have lingering doubts about investing in on-site
language training should consider this:
By 2027, over one million new jobs are expected to be added to the restaurant
According to the National Restaurant Association, “All of this means that
foreign-born employees will be increasingly important to the restaurant
industry’s ability to expand and create jobs in the years ahead.”38
For foodservice operators and managers who want to plan for their future now,
the question is obvious: What’s the best way to address these issues?
Rosetta Stone can provide some answers.

When any organization starts planning for cloud-native applications, it is important to consider
the entire time span: from selecting a development platform until an application is truly production-grade and ready for delivery in the cloud. It can be a long journey, with many decisions
along the way that can help or hinder progress.
For example, at the beginning of a move to cloud-native development, it is easy for inefficiencies
to occur if developers begin selecting tools and frameworks before they know where the application will be deployed. While enterprise developers want choice of runtimes, frameworks, and
languages, organizations need standards that address the entire application life cycle in order
to reduce operational costs, decrease risks, and meet compliance requirements. Organizations
also want to avoid lock-in, whether it is to a single provider of cloud infrastructure or the latest
In addition, given the steep learning curve in cloud development, con
