In my time of professional or academic life, I am always blessed to receive feedback from my peers and colleagues to help me grow in the area I am weak at. Meaningful feedback is powerful and allows me to rethink my current approach or pivot to an alternate course of action. Let me introduce “F.A.S.T” feedback to you. This is a framework that supports the performance planning, learning and review cycle. Do you know what it takes to provide constructive feedback and what characteristics of feedback should be there?

F.A.S.T Feedback

Strong feedback has 4 characteristics:

  • —Feedback should focus on goals…

In the past several decades, artificial intelligence and robotics has played a vital role in the improvements in technology and led to a surge in public interest. As the figures from the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) show, sales of robots are increasing year-on-year, with a 15% increase in 2015 over the previous year. The IFR estimates that over 2.5 million industrial robots will be at work in 2019, representing an average annual growth rate of 12% between 2016 and 2019 (International Federation of Robotics 2016). Many companies are “experiencing a wave of robot-related optimism and investment” because of the…

Will enterprise data lake & enterprise data warehouse (EDW) coexist?

In the early days of data repository, a ( or ), also known as an (), is a commonly known system used for reporting and data analysis, and is considered a core component of business intelligence. Extract, transform, load (ETL) and extract, load, transform (E-LT) are the two main approaches used to build a data warehouse system. DWs are central repositories of integrated data from one or more disparate sources. They store current and historical data in one single place. It may sound remarkably similar to the definition of a In particular, data…
