Hire top-notch software developers using Artificial Intelligence.

Good Day,

My name is Nurdin, CEO of IntelliJ System Solution Sdn Bhd.

I am glad to present our latest state of the art: Soding.

Do you agree that it is difficult to find good employee? Even when we use conventional systems to help you find them.

But what if I tell you that we have a tool that uses Artificial Intelligence to analyse your future employee’s skills and attributes where it tells you, in advance, whether should you hire or not hire them.

If you are agree, then you are awesome.

I understand that you would have tonnes of doubts about Soding when you are reading this email. That is why I am proposing for a meet up where I can explain in details about Soding, how can it benefits your organisation and how awesome it is.

Please do not hesitate to contact me on my mobile or email. I will make myself available to meet up.

Reinvent Blockchain with Artificial Intelligence

Austin Flow Map 1 12-15-08

Blockchain is the future of finance. It is the future of how all transactions is going to work. We are talking about money, business and the world. Blockchain decentralizes all transactions via nodes, which are participated by market participants such as peoples, businesses, banks and securities firms. It is state-of-the-art technology. Thus, the blockchain thinking is required now in order to create efficient transactions for enlarging future.

Bittersweet of Blockchain.

Blockchain will be used to create smarter, more efficient systems for all supply chains, gaming, multi-media rights management, car rental, real estates sell & purchase, Government proof of identity and insurance record management.

Openness, speed, security, privacy, reliability, accountability and transparency will be the key values running in blockchain thinking. The only bitter thing about blockchain is middlemen/intermediaries will be cut out.

Auto-compliance.

We believe that AI is making world a better place. We are interested about AI role in Blockchain.

The technology is powered by second generation, as the first one has brought us to Internet of information era. The second generation is demanding compliance in their businesses, which has open new innovation door to transform all human affairs, wiser.

You should care because you would wanted to know where is this meat came from. Or for artist, you wanted to know who is currently have your trademarked/IP properties. For donors, you can know where you donations goes to. For Muslim, you can know where and how your zakaat is managed.

Now, you know the capabilities of this revolution. Blockchain is indeed an intense creation.

Permissionless & Permissioned Blockchain.

Blockchain is originally permissionless, publicly shared and decentralized. Meaning, it is detached from the central monetary system. Historically, Bitcoin is one of the famous and the most ideal cryptocurrency for technology fundamentalists. But not economists. Security firms claimed that participants that are involved in permissionless Blockchain is danger to the society that the firms faced difficult time to track suspicious activity.

Second, the ledger is shared to act as a source of truth for businesses in the blockchain. This means, shared ledger can records all transactions across the business network among participants and copies of the records are exact and replicable.

Today, permissioned and private Blockchain are existing. Permissioned means participants can only see sufficient documents that requires consensus/agreement/permission. They need to be validated from involved ends to reach consensus. This is to lower the risk of faulty transactions since interference can be occured across many places at the exact same time.

Blockchain network will be not just public ledger, but also concern about private parties in which only authorized parties are allowed to join in the transactions. Records can be protected with a digital signature and to seal the record, the permissioned blockchain will generate a private and public key. Therefore, participants can only see what they are allowed to see. Versioning history of unique IDs for customer, invoice and reference numbers will be appear clear and transparent in all transactions which are unchangeable and final.

IntelliJ’s quest in Blockchain.

Despite all these fancies about Blockchain, we like to extend its capability argumentatively.

Efficiency, trust-ability and independence are the keys of a mining operation so to record transactions.

We are interested in this quest:

How to make the operation to think independently and shared mutual way of thinking in all networks as creatively and spontaneously as an ingenuine human?

Conclusion.

Finally, we are absolutely aware that blockchain will create winners and losers. Although so, we cannot afford dislocation and insecurity in our money management.

Centralized is thought as suitable for building-fintech-products thinking, whilst decentralized is more free-ier, allowing re-innovation in the whole operation. Both ways are responsible to generate prosperity to the country.

In case you are interested too in innovating blockchain technology, we should spend more time in its thinking within compliant philosophy together because the disruption is real and is indeed coming into the way.

Imagine about empowering blockchain in all IoT network. For that, time will be the ultimate unit of measurement.

Fin.

Transformation is not about improving, it is about re-thinking. -Malcolm Gladwell

How to think like a computer scientist?

Alan Turing as a Computer Scientist

Alan Turing as a Computer Scientist

What is science? What is computer science anyway? Computer science is the study of computers. It is an art of science that representing and processing information. How about definition of computer scientist? Each person has their own perspective and way of looking at things about the definition itself. It is more related to concept of theoretical, engineering and solution provided on specific domain of computer science. Most of the time, computer scientist field conquered by male gender instead of female because of the two reasons. First, is there are no fair and equality treat to women compare to male and increasing disturbing possibility where women can be a computer scientist that discouraged them to participate. Second is related to demographics where male often entering colleagues and the jobs opportunity are more towards to male compare to female. How to think like a computer scientist? Computer scientist not only think solely about technical perspective but it’s beyond than that. In this case study, we will discuss more details about 3 views how to think like a computer scientist.

First view is computer scientist must have interacted faith when dealing with science. Science without philosophy is blind but philosophy without science is emptiness. So religion perspective is very important when we want to conclude any hypothesis before it been made. Even new great discoveries have found by the computer scientists without religion and philosophy involvement, it will become blind and strayed because no proper aim, objectives and goals. But experiment or observation on the name of science without religion and philosophy are useless and emptiness because unknowing purpose of creation.

Second view is a computer scientist must always present solutions to problems, to prove some math theorems, to make precise analyzes of computational tasks, to propose general theories, or to organize bodies of knowledge. Compare to mathematicians who do algebra think different from mathematicians who do geometry but both kinds of mathematicians think different from computer scientists who work on useful algorithms that computer can perform. Computer scientist also need to think about the hardware and software. There are a lot of computer problems can be solved with proper techniques as mention before this, one of it is to create an effective algorithm because we believe computer or “machine” far more powerful and capable of solving real world problems which humans cannot do.

Third view is computer scientist need to work in three distinguishable areas which are design of hardware components and especially total systems, design of basic languages and software broadly useful in applications, including monitors, compilers, time-sharing systems and methodology of problem solving with computers. Second view is more similar to third view but it is more emphasize computer scientist areas. One example related to hardware components, currently computer scientist successfully found a way how to optimize the hardware memory and boost up computation capability according to Moore’s Law. They try to emulate computer like human brain so it can process more complex algorithm and at the same time try to copycat human brain to be an artificial computer brain.

PyMathCamp aims to produce modern innovator through data science & mathematics

Innovative thinking and necessary skills set are critically crucial to solve real world problems. Approaching the future, problem will be getting more complex. Malaysia is in dire need of modern innovator to develop state-of-the-art solutions to solve them. And to develop solution, with just innovative thinking is not enough.

With lack of data science and mathematics talent, Malaysia is going to have tough time to have intellectual local resources to solve local problems.

Yes, it is true that Malaysia can outsource talents to foreign expertise but it is not right to be too dependent on them all the time. Even the dependency, the supply is still insufficient. Technology transfer can be very expensive and second, foreign workers shall be taking time to adapt with local structure before developing suitable solution. The more time taken, the more money out.

Malaysia is lacking of innovators.

study data scientist Malaysia

“Malaysia may not have enough engineers, architects, and other professionals, to achieve Vision 2020 based on the low level of interest by our students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). If the situation goes on, Malaysia may have to depend on foreign workers to attain developed status, warn expert.” Star Sunday.

Wawasan 2020 is getting nearer yet we are still incapable to show that we can ‘supply’ the vision.

Here we are, want to provide highly-impact education which focus on data science and mathematics, to ALL Malaysian for FREE so that, whole nation can change million of lives to be better.

Introducing to you, PyMathCamp.

PyMathCamp will be an online learning platform to teach data science and mathematics that make use of programming languages such as Python, C++ or R in preparation to produce future actionable Malaysian innovator to solve problems.

The online learning platform shall help them to learn how to code and further career in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). How?

How subjects of data science and mathematics can invent innovator?

Data science and mathematics are not “subjects in the class, stay in the class”. They are basic necessities to all kind of businesses; health, agriculture, finance, social sciences, maritime sciences, planetary sciences, meteorology, geography, and many more. You name it. STEM is WIDE. 

Data science in a simple word is a study of how to gather interesting data. And the interestingness of data shall depend on the searcher or data looker. Data is one oceanic word. However he/she may want to look for a matter that he/she is desired into, he/she must learn the science of pulling it from the ocean (of data), clean it, groom it and present it informatively.

Mathematics, on the other hand, is what makes life measurable to the basic thing like genomic. Mathematics demands wisdom, judgment and maturityWe can make error to find solution, we can alter our methods or start all over. When it comes to life, reality mostly doesn’t allow us to redo anything most of the time, but when it comes to ‘measurable condition’, we are allowed to attempt to change things.

By defining their importance in state-of-the-art programming, we shall have idea how both subjects are keys to economic prosperity. Without above talents, we will have difficulties to obtain interesting parameters. To obtain, data science and mathematics must be learnt.

Modern students of PyMathCamp should expect the following:

Student shall be able to create emphatic solutions. They shall be able to build advanced innovation through data science and mathematics and deliver curing values to others.

A variety of topics such as data exploration, visualization, feature engineering, predictive analytics, predictive modeling, clustering, big data pipelines, metrics and many more should be expected.

All trainers and mentors are experts, highly trained and well-experienced Malaysians. They are specialized in data science, computer vision, big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence and etc.

Students are also expected to find own solutions by leveraging our programming community portal and discussion group (chit chat). For open source development, PyMathCamp will be integrated with Github. 

We have evidential method to improve every of users’ learning curve to the finish line.

Note that PyMathCamp will only be committed to specific fields that are data science and mathematics.

There will be no age limit.

PyMathCamp will be focusing on Python, C++ or R because it’s beginner-friendly (easy to use and understand), math supported and mother tongue of Artificial Intelligence. Truly high in-demand skills set for sure.

And it is free. Yup. No charges.

Carpe diem.

Seize the day.

We want to build smart society to build smart structures.

We want to produce intelligent society. Malaysia needs smart society to help nation grow each other better to achieve Wawasan 2020 and further ages.

Other than fulfilling job vacancy, we aim that students shall be able to invent advanced solution and create intelligent startups to solve all society’s problems. This is our deepest aim actually. We want students to be modern innovator.

In simple word, PyMathCamp is really preparing Malaysians for the amazing (automated) future.

Join PyMathCamp.

IntelliJ is a deeply value-oriented company.

We want to educate and bring Malaysian mind to advanced level, starting from small, FOR FREE, which is the essence to change Malaysia into economically, a prosperous place.

We want to produce marketable Malaysians, in this self-serving economy, with highly-impact education as the first defense.

We pray that every mission of ours enrich all lives.

“Future is belongs to those who figure out how to collect and use data successfully.”

OpenCV training using Python

Introduction to Computer Vision for Robotics

Course Overview:

Computer vision is fast becoming a major component of a robotics system. With the capability to process and analyse visual data, the robot is able to ‘see’ and perceive its surrounding, thus completing tasks that are beyond imaginable limits of non-visual robots. Incorporating computer vision is the crucial next step in advancing your robotics systems.

This course will introduce the basic principles of computer vision, with emphasis on applications in robotics. The participants will learn the theories behind how computers capture 2D images and translate them into meaningful 3D information. Hands-on, practical exercises will be plenty, where participants will develop algorithms and control a mobile robot to perform tasks such as obstacle avoidance, ball tracking and target recognition, using no other sensors but a webcam.

Participants will be using the OpenCV library in the Python programming language. OpenCV is widely used in computer vision developments, as it hosts a large number of useful tools and algorithms. Python is the preferred language as it is easy to learn, and has great integration with OpenCV. This combination also has a world-wide supportive online community, providing contents, guidelines and tutorials for our advantage.

EagleEye – Malaysia’s first drone company aims to alert you real-time if your neighborhood is under conflicts.

Human transplanted kidney costs MYR 5,000 to MYR 9,000. This is the price tag in recorded 2012, four years back. And about 60,000 transplants are taking place worldwide each year, where 1 in 10 were done illegally. 

Scary enough?

Daily Mail reported that:

“Wealthy patients are paying up to £128,500 (roughly $191,028 today) for a kidney to gangs, often in China, India and Pakistan, who harvest the organs from desperate people for as little as £3,200 (roughly $4,756 today)”

For your information, organ trading and trafficking has been a “very profitable and impatient industry” since The New Millennium. And it is still ongoing, staggering US$1 billion a year! That number is only  in China alone. p:s I wonder if they are hiring.

Organ harvesting drama.

 

Enough about kidneys, how about other crimes such as human kidnapping, robberies, rapes and murders?

Crimes are taking places everywhere and citizen’s security is still a gamble. We do not have military level security, to watch over huge perimeter, taking care of everyone’s safety. 

The Solution – EagleEye

an intelligent drone that fly for only one reason; to save lives.

 

Cypher-UAV

Cypher-UAV

 

#1 How?

EagleEye patrols your neighborhood by flying autonomously day and night, 24/7. Using high definition camera, EagleEye detects suspicious activity, analysing them using artificial intelligence.

EagleEye captures visual evidences like video and image, in real-time using Computer Vision technology called as OpenCV.

Whenever EagleEye detects suspicious activity, it will instantly triggers alert to authorities like police and security agencies for instant action. Snapshots are taken for human verification, making sure that crimes are managed at almost instant.

#2 EagleEye is intelligent enough to analyse crime event

 

Cypher

Cypher

We implanted artificial intelligence so that it can learn crime and differentiate between serious and non-serious activities. Well, we do not want to send officer just because two guys just give each other’s a paw.

The level of intelligence does not only detect occurred events but uses captured data to predict upcoming crime activity. Like, busy but wide roads are highly potential for theft involving bikes.

EagleEye is also ready to provide feeds 100% accurate to the involved parties.

#3 EagleEye craves for top safety

 

Imagine a security guard “flying” 10 metres away from your house and he never need get drowsy, never need lunch break or even take 5. He keeps roaming around until he needs “sleep”. While he’s off to sleep, another security guards come and continue scouting. Another words saying is, its a 24/7, no pause, security.

Nahhh.. I have CCTVs?

Good for you, sir. However, CCTV is static. 

Meanwhile, EagleEye flies autonomously, detects suspicious activity intelligently, alerts the involved authorities, and at the same time, helps police to execute safety and security well planned and throughout.

#4 Shut up and take my money!!

Hang on there buddy, EagleEye is waiting for a new regulation on the use of drones in Malaysia which is anticipated that Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) will renew Act of Aeronautical Information Circular (AIC) 4/2008 this year 2016.

Lets pray together it is executed ASAP.

Conclusion

Drones is very soon to be reliable usage in daily life.

We are not here to take anyone’s job. But drones will be the ultimate solution, to ensure highest level of security around us. The implementation will be in stages, thus we still need people to cooperate with.

And EagleEye will never be dictator’s army. It has the communication ability to hear what you want it to hear. For instance, you saw a guy brutally attacked at a corner. You can tell the drone to go and check it out, instead of risking your safety. Drones will take care of it with its procedures.

Some words from the IntelliJian – “we are too excited to get this project on field. We cannot wait to help more people with our AI solutions”.

Notice

To achieve better neighborhood’s security, we are inviting skillful engineers and innovative designers to work with us, so that all Malaysian citizens can live happier in a longer period of time. Please do contact us.

Many thanks.

TraitHire – Eliminate injustice in conventional job hiring system using its Artificial Intelligence

The true challenge in job recruitment is recruiters has no adequate tools to accurately measure skill sets and qualification. Inaccuracy is due to human bias, which leads to injustice.

dilema graduan industri pengalaman pekerjaan

A story from a victim of conventional hiring system.

This idea is inspired from a friend of us who was rejected by job finder system, simply because he did not have “3 years of experience”.

In reality, he was a really talented programmer and he applied jobs at big companies like IBM and Quintiq. Sadly, the conventional hiring system did listed him out as he was not given a chance to prove his quality at all. Without many choices, he had to pursuit his career with smaller company, that provides less benefits.

On the other hand, that big company has to struggle to deal with another programmer they hired. That person barely do basic problem solving, simply because he is actually not as good as he was in the resume. Well, he had what the recruiter demanded – 3 years of experience.

With “impressive” communication skills, he secured the job even despite his poor technical skills. Just because interview’s conclusion is made of human bias, his skills were not evaluated carefully and his promising resume remains ‘outstanding’.

The Solution – TraitHire

#1 TraitHire is the missing ingredient in today’s conventional systems 

Recruiters already has a method to filter out hiring employees’ skills by assigning them technical (for technical job) and interpersonal assessments, so recruiters will make less mistake in hiring. But, these assessments are time-compressing and less effective.

So, we want to offer accurate list of workforce to recruiters, to hire accurate skills and qualification faster. We do not think that employer should spend time, testing job applicants every time they do hiring. Let the system automatically do it, while employers just need to sit back and relax, since more accurate and effective filtration is being done by TraitHire.

The next big thing is our artificial intelligence will outsmart future recruiting by matching job candidates personality with job description or client’s requirement.

#2 Inaccuracy- Problem that is worth fighting

Conventional job finder sites are inaccurate, demotivating, unreliable and unjust.

We want to solve this matter quickly because there are lots of talented programmer out there who need to be treated and rewarded fairly. While employers do need “someone” to advice them on making hiring decisions.

We CAN fake things up just to look good, especially resume. Or candidates can just hire someone else to build their CV, voila, a really REALLY good looking document. Sadly, it is only good on papers.

TraitHire uses real human being personality, taken from job candidates’ brain wave signal using special device. This is a thing which we can never fake up. The personalities are, of course,  accurate and reliable.

#3 Personality plays a significant role in workplace behaviors

This study noted the influence of personality does not begin the day a person starts work. Rather, how a person prepares for his or her entrance into the job market and the kind of impression that person makes during the recruiting process also appear to be a function of the applicant’s personality.

Almost all of the companies use personality assessments to assess job candidates’ personality. This shows that industrial organizations are not neglecting personality as indicator in making hiring decision.

Even after assessing personality traits, different organizations may use different methods to assess interpersonal skills such as ability to work in a team, communication, service-oriented, and ability to inspire and etc. These organizations should know that interpersonal skills and personality traits have positive correlation.

Interesting news, we have found that particular cognitive abilities or personality traits influence interpersonal processes and interpersonal skills when they account for task-level demands.

Meanwhile, Klein’s, a meta-analysis found that extroversion and agreeableness are predictive of interpersonal processes and interpersonal skills.

So, based on these evidences…

TraitHire’s aims are as follows:

  1. To save recruiters’ time and laborious work to hire the right personality of job candidates which fits in role without assessing it via inaccurate and time-consuming personality assessments.
  2. Recruiters able to hire true skills and qualifications regardless years of experience.
  3. Recruiters avoid human bias.
  4. Recruiters won’t lose sight of right job candidates or slide out of them to competitors.
  5. Recruiters will no need or less need to watch multiple videos to shortlist right candidates.
  6. Job candidates will no need to build ridiculous resume anymore, but can start focusing on building skills, solely.
  7. Job candidates will have satisfied working environment by being hired to the job that he or she really committed and be rewarded fairly.

Conclusion

Approaching the future, recruiters that are still relying on the conventional system to find, evaluate and hire employees, are predicted to continuously face tougher and inaccurate hiring process.

We believe that intelligence is needed to solve these problems; job distribution, sourcing, candidate engagement, scheduling, and selection, faster.

After this, recruiters shall focus on recruiting real skills and qualifications that job candidates really possess.

We want to go extra miles, not just in IT industry but all. Join us.

Thank you.

Introduction: Predicting Human Personality Traits

Human Being is Unique

Human progresses from young to old – learning from events of life, overcoming event after event, and moving on. Hence, different evolution history and different perspectives of life. Every event happened in life develops new rules, results in the personality of the person today. But the rules sometimes are not withstanding, causing the person to flex.

Studies shows that personality can change in matter of long time. Sigmund Freud, an Austrian neurologist and the father of psychoanalysis, postulated that, to describe behavior, we must look into persons’ motives in the present, not in the past. Person’s today is the result of his/her extraversion, openness/intellect, conscientiousness, agreeableness, and emotional stability, so he/she ables to make decisions.

Human Interested in Greater Available Information

Basically, humans are typically fond of future predictions and forecasts. How?

An exploration biological hormone, dopamine enhances person’s exploration towards questions that they are seeking for answer. Human entropy increases as the brain try to answer higher question. Human always interested in environment that provides greater information. Then the likely aversion to predominate over exploration. However, as the entropy develops in the human cybernetic system, it can drive more aversion responses which includes caution, fear, and anxiety.

Quoting a famous Irish proverb, “Curiosity killed the cat…”. Unfortunately, it is true. Either an exploration literally kills a human or the human becomes more sensitive individuals. And rejoins with, “…satisfaction brought it back”. The degree or index of both secretions are exploration-dependant. We should be grateful to the nora-adrenaline to put a stop or interrupt our exploration “chaos”, hence to balance exploration-aversion in a human.

The Reliability and Validity of Personality Tests Questions

We are interested in identifying personality traits in quantifiable variables. Psychologists and humanists theorists postulated many respected indicators to discover personality traits. It can be assessed by having personality test questions.

Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is widely used as an indicator to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. Rooted from Carl Jung’s theory, it shows patterns for how we carry out these mental activities commonly referred to as the function- attitudes, functions-in-attitude or the eight mental processes.

However, the reliability and validity of the theories are still argued (2013). Therefore, we are open to reasonable possibilities, ideas from intellectual peoples like you to join our work to achieve this aim together.

You can email your visions to nurdin[at]intellij.my. 

Conclusion

Finally, we strongly believe that human should be fitted into trait-based rather than fitting human into type-based. Measuring personal preferences should be measurable and understandable.

We like one of a famous humanist theorist, Abraham Maslow, an American psychologist, on his idea: The closer the actual of a human being and the idea that they would like to be, the more positive his/her self-actualization.

Self is the organizer of our thoughts and feelings and action. Self is the center of a personality.

Time waits no one. We need to cut short self-reflection time so that we can focus on solving more complicated problems.
