For all the talk and disclosures regarding inclusion and diversity, a new report shows that tech companies are making little headway in building racially balanced workforces.Open MIC, a nonprofit that focuses on issues of diversity, released a study this month that shows African-Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans remain dramatically underrepresented in the tech economy compared to their overall presence in the U.S. workforce.

The organization is hoping to get investors to pressure tech companies to be more aggressive with their diversity efforts by making the case that this is a big loss in terms of productivity and profitability, both for the companies and the broader economy.

In a country with a population growing more diverse each day, the U.S. tech community remains a bastion of white, male privilege that has largely excluded people of color, said Michael Connor, executive director of Open MIC, in a statement.

Given the growing social, political and economic influence of tech companies, the lack of diversity in the sector has implications that extend far beyond the industry itself.

According to the report — called Breaking the Mold: Investing in Racial Diversity in Tech — African-Americans and Latinos each represent about 5.3 percent of the tech workforce, at least 16 percentage points below their overall numbers in the general workforce.Making this challenge even steeper: People of color working in tech report feeling isolated and discriminated against, which results in their leaving the tech workforce at a rate 3.5 times greater than that of white men.The paper cites another study by Intel that found over the past five years, various tech companies and organizations have pledged to spend $1.2 billion on diversity programs.Despite that spending, the Open MIC report found that over the past 15 years, racial and ethnic minorities have only seen their numbers increase by less than 2 percent in the tech sector.

And in the upper ranks, the study found that only 2 percent of executives are African-American and 3 percent are Latino.The organization called on investors to play a more active role in pressuring companies to change, citing several studies that indicate more racially diverse companies on average reported better revenue gains and profitability.

The Internet of Things—sensors and actuators connected by networks to computing systems— has received enormous attention over the past five years…To get a broader view of the IoT’s potential benefits and challenges across the global economy, we analysed more than 150 use cases, ranging from people whose devices monitor health and wellness to manufacturers that utilise sensors to optimise the maintenance of equipment and protect the safety of workers.Our bottom-up analysis estimates that the IoT has a total potential economic impact of $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion a year by 2025.

At the top end, that level of value would be equivalent to about 11 per cent of the world economy.

Even at this early stage, the IoT is starting to have a real impact by changing how goods are made and distributed, how products are serviced and refined, and how doctors and patients manage health and wellness.But capturing the full potential of IoT applications will require innovation in technologies and business models, as well as investment in new capabilities and talent.

With policy actions to encourage interoperability, ensure security, and protect privacy and property rights, the Internet of Things can begin to reach its full potential—especially if leaders truly embrace data-driven decision making.

Who will rule the future economy—entrepreneurs or mega corporations?

Will the economy fracture into smaller and smaller bits or centralize in a winner-take-all scenario?

Three mainstays of the gig economy—Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash—this week launched a $90 million campaign to overturn a California law they say doesn’t apply to them anyway.

On Tuesday, a small crowd of workers for the companies joined in Sacramento to kick off the campaign, which, if it receives enough support to reach the statewide ballot, would be voted on by Californians in November 2020.

The companies and their supporters are pitching the initiative as a “compromise” that would create a third employment classification requiring Uber, Lyft, and their ilk to give drivers more perks than the average independent contractor, but wouldn’t entitle workers to the full benefits of an employee.

If it’s approved by state voters, the initiative would require the companies to pay their still-independent contractors a minimum wage and vehicle maintenance costs, cover their auto insurance costs, and grant them a healthcare stipend.

It would also create mandatory safety training for any app-based drivers.

The companies offered a similar “compromise” to labor leaders in September, as they tried to prevent the new law from passing the state legislature.

Today, the Council on Foreign Relations-sponsored Independent Task Force released The Work Ahead, a report on the American workforce in the 21st century.

And yet The Work Ahead does not blame technology per se, but a government and society that have consistently failed to adjust to economic reality—leaving workers to navigate a rapidly changing world without sufficient support or guidance.

As the report points out, the US has traditionally led the world in its efforts to educate and employ its citizens—whether that’s universal public education, broader access to college, defining the manufacturing economy, or launching the modern tech industry.

WIRED Site Director Jason Tanz caught up with Penny Pritzker, former commerce secretary and co-chair of the council’s nonpartisan task force, to discuss the findings.

Why does the Council of Foreign Relations consider this part of its purview?

And this is an issue that requires generational change and a change in our culture—to embrace the fact that automation and artificial intelligence and globalization and pervasive use of robots are affecting the very nature of work.

For JD’s joint venture in Thailand, this year’s shopping holiday is an opportunity to establish itself in Southeast Asia’s second-largest economy.

The Chinese e-commerce company has a 50:50 partnership with Central Group, Thailand’s largest retail conglomerate.

According to Forbes, the Chirathivats have an estimated net worth of over $21 billion, and rank as the 10th richest family in Asia and the second in Thailand, a kingdom where economic and political power is concentrated among a small elite, often connected through familial ties.

The shopping festival, which kicked off earlier this month, represents an important chance to stake a foothold in Thailand’s fast growing e-commerce landscape.

In China, Singles’ Day is famous for flash sales where products are sold at steep discounts, and top e-commerce firms such as Alibaba and JD clock up billions of dollars in sales.

Although not immediately profitable, these shopping holidays are a method by which e-retailers attract users to their platform, who they hope to retain as loyal customers even after the deals die down.

Digital capabilities, adoption and usage are evolving at a supercharged pace.

While most users scramble just to keep up with the relentless rate of innovation, the sectors, companies and individuals on the digital frontier continue to push the boundaries of technology use — and to capture disproportionate gains as a result.The companies leading the charge are winning the battle for market share and profit growth; some are reshaping entire industries to their advantage.Workers with the most sophisticated digital skills are in such high demand that they command wages far above the national average.

Meanwhile, there’s a growing opportunity cost for the organisations and individuals that fall behind.… Companies in manufacturing, energy and other heavy industries are investing in digitising their extensive physical assets, bringing us closer to the era of connected cars, smart buildings and intelligent oilfields.

The expansion of the digital frontier shows no sign of slowing, and we have barely scratched the surface of the many markets that could be transformed.

Even as digitisation creates opportunities for growth, it is likely to unleash economic dislocation.As digital technologies automate many of the tasks that humans are paid to do, the day-to-day nature of work will change in a majority of occupations.

Companies will redefine many roles and business processes, affecting workers of all skill levels.

It will also contribute to local environmental and economic sustainability by creating testbeds including the deployment of shared services to achieve effective utilization of spaces, natural resources to create further green infrastructure, and shared public space that includes transportation and sustainable mobility.

This will help facilitate urban challenges and sustainable threats such as climate change, pollution, inefficient use of resources that cause wastage and disruption to landmarks or landscapes.

Unemployment and poverty are also indirectly part of this threat which can be remotely addressed by the utmost upkeep of sharing economy by involving different approaches held by the government to involve citizens to be the main source to seek towards a sustainable solution.Different practical researches were conducted in the distinctive community to identify how people understand and perceive the concept of sharing and how they would adapt to living up to a sharing economy lifestyle.

This behavior is reflected in different example activities such as renting, buying second-hand items, bartering, creating products with a group of people, giving away.The act of a government to center the normal activities into something more unique and authentic.

This helps them to govern and apply different own based mechanisms and exemplify them in the city and the available urban policies, this activity helps to optimize the available protocols and other companies that have the eligible potential to act as one and comply with the self-governing rules.

Sharing economy hasn’t yet shown a huge transition in people’s holistic lifestyle, perhaps not by the adequate amount that is aligned according to the 2030 agenda and the urban development goals.

The demand for top talent is monumental, and the process of finding and hiring the best workers can be excruciating.

There are many marketplaces on the web where one can go to find talent, but how do you know that their work is quality?

Reviews aren’t always reliable, and there is stiff competition on many gig platforms, making the prices undercut, the stakes lower and the work shoddy.

Toptal, founded in 2010, aims to relieve the difficulties of hiring freelancers.

The freelancers and consultants that contract through Toptal are getting better paying jobs, and the companies that hire them are getting vetted talent, solving both problems at once.

I spoke with Toptal Co-founder and CEO Taso Du Val to find out more about how Toptal got started and his predictions for the future of the talent economy.

So pervasive is digital that CA Technologies talks about the App driven economy.
