TechBrain Finds Evidence of Gendered Language Bias in IT Industry Job Ads

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 26 giugno 2019

TechBrain, a Perth-based IT support services company, today released a report on the use of gendered language in tech industry job ads. The study found evidence of a possible bias towards language that appeals more to men – especially in higher paid roles. The firm commissioned a study of 1,940 job ads posted online over the course of one week in June and counted the frequency in which gendered words in those ads appeared.
Recent studies media reports have highlighted how the use of certain words in a job ad can have a big effect on the numbers of men or women who apply for the position. As an operator in the heavily male-dominated IT industry, TechBrain wanted to assess how important this issue was and chose to study language used in tech industry ads.
The company commissioned an independent researcher to process the ads through an online tool which counts the frequency of ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’ words in an advert, with 50 keywords which research suggests appeal to each gender. Words in ads that appeal to men include language like ‘active’, ‘fearless’ and ‘independent’, while words that appeal to women in job ads include ‘co-operate’, ‘empathise’ and ‘interdependent’.The research revealed:There were actually 15% more feminine words used in IT industry ads than masculine words However, by far the most common ‘female’ word found was ‘support’ (appearing 1,668 times), which may have skewed the results. ‘Support’ is used frequently in IT job ads and often refers to a technical activity, rather than expectations about the applicant’s personal and professional qualities.

Third Annual Industry Report

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 20 giugno 2019

WebPT, the market-leading software platform for outpatient rehab therapists, released its 2019 State of Rehab Therapy report detailing the findings from its recent industry-wide survey of more than 6,000 physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech-language pathology professionals from an array of specialties, settings and geographic locations. According to the report, the biggest challenges facing the rehab therapy industry today include provider burnout, increasingly complex payer relationships and mounting student debt.Organized into five sections — demographics, business and financials, challenges and opportunities, salary, and technology — the report presents data on job satisfaction, billing and reimbursements, revenue, practice size, patient volume, career outlook, top challenges and technology preferences. Key findings include:Within the next five years, more than 51.9 percent of rehab therapy professionals are considering a career change, with many looking to either reduce work hours or move into non-clinical roles.
As organizations get larger, they are increasingly participating — or planning to participate — in value-based payment programs. In fact, more than 25 percent of 21-plus-provider companies report that they already participate in such programs.
About 23 percent of all respondents reported being involved in a merger or acquisition within the last five years.
More than half of rehab therapy graduates will have more than $70,000 in student loan debt, and nearly 25 percent will owe more than $100,000. However, overall, students reported slightly lower levels of debt in 2019 compared to 2018, with the percentage of students owing $0 at graduation jumping from 8.3 percent in 2018 to 13.5 percent in 2019.
Nearly 80 percent of organizations require a physician referral for new patients even though some form of direct access to physical therapy is available in all 50 states.
High copays and coinsurances were the top-ranked regulatory issue in terms of impact to the rehab therapy community, regardless of respondent role, longevity or sex.

AMP Robotics Launches New AI Guided Dual-Robot System for the Recycling Industry

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 9 Mag 2019

AMP Robotics Corp. (“AMP”), a pioneer in artificial intelligence (“AI”) and robotics for the recycling industry, today announced the launch of its new AMP Cortex™ dual-robot system (“DRS”) focused on material recovery in Municipal Solid Waste (“MSW”), Electronic Waste (“E-waste”), and Construction and Demolition (“C&D”). The AMP Cortex DRS expands on their existing product line of high-speed recycling robotics guided by the AMP Neuron™ AI platform and uses two high-performance robots that rapidly sort, pick, and place materials at an unprecedented speed of 160 pieces per minute creating optimum productivity. AMP Neuron uses computer vision and machine learning to recognize different colors, textures, shapes, sizes, and patterns to identify material characteristics. Then, it directs the robots to pick and place the targeted material. The system can operate 24/7 with continuous high-precision sorting, preventing contaminants in material streams, and increasing the overall quality and purity of commodities to be reclaimed. The system is modularly designed to drop into existing facilities without requiring a major retrofit or downtime, enabling customers to quickly benefit from advanced automation.The unique design of the two robots opens up new material applications, namely the ability to efficiently process difficult material streams of post-consumer fiber. From sheets of paper to cardboard, sorting fiber is a major challenge for recycling lines, often becoming a contaminant for other recycled commodities. By solving this challenge, AMP’s technology improves the purity of materials to be recycled, while also increasing the recycling rates of post-consumer recycled fiber overall.AMP’s latest announcement follows recent press about their partnership with Ryohshin Ltd. to develop two new robotic systems using AMP Neuron AI to recycle C&D materials for the Japanese market. And most recently, Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s largest E-waste recycler, announced plans for additional installations of the AMP Cortex system in their facilities.This week, AMP Robotics is exhibiting at WasteExpo 2019, the biggest waste management and recycling trade show in the U.S. taking place in Las Vegas from May 7 – 9, 2019. In addition to speaking at the conference about AI and robotics in recycling, Horowitz will also be receiving Waste360’s “40 Under 40 Award” and their annual “Innovator of the Year Award”, created to recognize forward thinkers who use technology to better the waste management industry.
