NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/14 -- The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global institution for strategic talent management, today shared additional details about its upcoming 2014 HCI Human Capital Summit & Expo. Held at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotel in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. from April 8 -10, 2014, the event aims to highlight how communities, collaboration and social technologies drive innovation and high performance in the workplace.
In today's economy, power has shifted from traditional institutions towards individuals and communities. Small start-ups now compete with enormous and established industry leaders, and traditional corporate hierarchies are flattening. At the same time, with the ubiquity of social networks, communication is no longer one-to-one, and learning has transformed into a social, community-oriented and continuous journey. The convergence of these factors has changed the way business is done, and employers must find new ways to spur collaboration, leverage social platforms and adopt the technologies that can lead to success.
The 2014 HCI Human Capital Summit will feature keynotes from some of the most prominent leaders and industry experts available. Among them is Richard Phillips, Captain of the Maersk Alabama, real-life inspiration for the movie Captain Phillips, and author of "A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea." During his engaging keynote, "Steering Your Ship Through Rough Waters: Lessons on Leadership from Captain Phillips," he will share his compelling story and experience as a 'floating CEO' and draw lessons from the dramatic events he experienced that can help organizations thrive even in the most drastic times. Phillips will also discuss the vital importance of leadership and teamwork, combined with a belief in the power and potential of oneself and their team.
In addition to Captain Phillips, numerous thought leaders and industry game changers will be presenting keynotes at the summit, including:
- Mark King, CEO of TaylorMade and Adidas brands
- Charlene Li, New York Times bestselling author and influential emerging technologies thought leader
- Dr. Debra France, responsible for leadership development and learning design at W.L. Gore
- Doc Hendley, CNN Hero and founder of Wine to Water
- Cathy Benko, vice chairman and managing principal at Deloitte
- Perry Lieber, elite personal trainer and leader in the corporate wellness space
- Charles S. Luck IV, president and CEO of Luck Companies
- Mark S. Fernandes, chief leadership officer at Luck Companies
"As the business landscape continues to evolve, today's employers must be able to identify the best practices, forward-thinking ideas and latest social technologies that enable their workforces to transform as well," said Carl Rhodes, HCI's chief executive officer. "We are pleased to offer attendees of the 2014 Human Capital Summit an unprecedented glimpse into the strategies that can facilitate workforce management in the new social economy and help leaders steer their teams toward success."
In addition to high-level keynotes, the 2014 HCI Human Capital Summit & Expo will feature comprehensive educational sessions on the themes of Learning and Leadership Development, Workforce Planning and Business Strategy, Recruiting and Acquisition, and Engagement and Social Media. Each session is expertly designed to provide attendees with useful information to enhance their leadership skills and deliver key insights that will bring immediate improvement in their organizations.
The summit will also be host to a meetup for Linked:HR, the largest professional group on LinkedIn. Held on the conference level of the Dolphin Hotel on Tuesday, April 8 from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m., the meetup will give attendees the chance to network with each other and interact with the Linked:HR team.

IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
