The numbers of religious freedom: Brian J. Grim at TEDxViadellaConciliazione

The numbers of religious freedom: Brian J. Grim at TEDxViadellaConciliazione

Translator: Jane Roffe Reviewer: Elisabeth Buffard (Applause) In 1982, I arrived in China to teach, by boat incidentally. At that time, no one knew whether or not religion had survived China’s cultural revolution. It sought to stamp out all religious practice and belief.

Why creating an AI-ready culture will mean more to your team than you think | SCEWC19

[MUSIC] At Microsoft we define AI ready culture is three things; One, you have to be data driven, so do you understand what data you have at your disposal? Are you using that the right way?
