“it’s about shifting people’s mindsets about AI so that they start thinking about intelligence differently.”Professor Rose Luckin
Smart decision making also applies to the recruitment process. Through Adaptive, we’re harnessing AI to de-risk the recruitment process of front office candidates and use the technology to enhance the performance of those already trading within our network.
Sitting within the core ZISHI eLearning platform, Adaptive draws data from our existing company-wide activities as well as data generated by individual traders. Over time, we’ll be using the technology to understand how our new recruits learn best – in order to tap into their full potential.
We’re integrating AI within our ZISHI eLearning system to provide hands-on mentorship and guidance whenever traders need it. Because the AI will support traders from the very beginning of their careers, traders will gain deep and progressive insights into his or her own level to keep refining their edge.
With over two decades pioneering educational technology and Artificial Intelligence, Professor Rose Luckin is considered a bit of an industry visionary.
Collaborating with the ZISHI Adaptive team during the past twelve months, Professor Luckin’s consultancy in AI is helping OSTC to pioneer systems that will leverage current data to promote better decision making and enable ‘smart’ mentorship. In her words, “it is about shifting people’s mindsets about AI so that they start thinking about intelligence differently, and how to achieve more intelligent behaviour and action through a blend of artificial and human intelligence.” Focusing on the integration of technology for an accelerated human performance, Rose shares OSTC’s own sentiment perfectly: to enhance – not replace – the human experience.
