We show that when the assumption of perfectly competitive labor markets underlying this theory is relaxed, minimum wages can increase training of affected workers, by inducing firms to train their unskilled employees. More generally, a minimum wage increases training for constrained workers, while reducing it for those taking wage cuts to finance their training. We provide new estimates on the impact of the state and federal increases in the minimum wage between 19 of the training of low wage workers. We find no evidence that minimum wages reduce training.

Also, after this list comes out, another awesome list for deep learning beginners, called Deep Learning Papers Reading Roadmap, has been created and loved by many deep learning researchers. Although the includes lots of important deep learning papers, it feels overwhelming for me to read them all. As I mentioned in the introduction, I believe that seminal works can give us lessons regardless of their application domain. Thus, I would like to introduce top 100 deep learning papers here as a good starting point of overviewing deep learning researches. To get the news for newly released papers everyday, follow my twitter or facebook page! Please note that we prefer seminal deep learning papers that can be applied to various researches rather than application papers. For that reason, some papers that meet the criteria may not be accepted while others can be.
Nov 21, 2017. Experts say that workplace sexual harassment training that focuses on legal definitions isn't effective. Here's what might work better. INTRODUCTION For most of American history, opportunities in the job market have enabled each generation to achieve a higher standard of living for themselves and their families than their parents enjoyed. Innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit fueled robust employment growth, a solid educational system readied workers to take advantage of employment opportunities, and a broad array of safety-net programs helped those who stumbled along the way get back on their feet. More recently, rapid technological changes and increasing global competition have continued to deliver great economic benefits to Americans, through lower prices for consumer goods or advances in health care that prolong our lives or improvements in the quality and capabilities of everyday products. But this recent wave of change has also left some workers behind, particularly less-skilled workers, by making it more difficult for them to find good job opportunities and by eroding their wages on the job. For instance, recent research by The Hamilton Project shows that over the past four decades the annual earnings of the median man with only a high school diploma have declined by 46 percent. Not since this country has maintained records has such a large group of Americans experienced a similar prolonged period of declining real earnings. The Great Recession of 2007–2009 exacerbated many of these long-term trends. Although the recession affected all Americans, disadvantaged workers with less education and fewer job-related skills experienced particularly high rates of job loss during this period, and many remain unemployed today.

The concept of visual literacy has been around for decades, and has typically been used in developing better teaching and learning techniques in the classroom. Recently however, visual literacy has been gaining traction in the workplace as a skill and tool to better identify occupational hazards that could lead to safety incidents. The following is a brief summary of what visual literacy is and how it can benefit occupational safety. Additionally, this document includes an outline of a new research project on visual literacy involving the Campbell Institute, its members and partners, and the Toledo Museum of Art. For the past few decades, workplace safety has been recognized as an essential component of running a business well and sustainably.

AnAnalysisofEmployee Perceptions Towards. Computer-Based Training. by. Amy. L. Gustafson. A Research Paper Submitted in Partial Fulfillment ofthe Requirements. Our exercises and assessments have been rigorously tested and scientifically proven to be beneficial in more than 100 independent, peer-reviewed research papers published in scientific journals—and many more studies are underway. Simply put, no other brain-training program comes close to Brain HQ's level of scientific proof. Brain HQ has been shown to bring substantial improvements in each of these categories: Many of the Brain HQ exercises are designed to increase processing speed—how quickly (and accurately) the brain can process information coming in from vision and hearing. To date, 20 scientific papers have shown faster processing after training with Brain HQ exercises. This includes the ACTIVE study, one of the largest and most respected studies ever conducted on brain training in adults. Among other things, individual studies have shown: The ability to appropriately focus your attention is very important to feeling sharp. Not only do you have to pay close attention to what matters to you; it’s equally important to be able to filter out the distractions. Seven published papers have shown that training with Brain HQ exercises can hone attentional focus including: A common question is: Does Brain HQ brain training make things easier or better in everyday life, or does it just “teach to the test”?
Gain valuable insights from research on learning and development issues. See our research studies on key topics learning transfer, global effectiveness. 3026 Issued in July 1989 NBER Program(s): Labor Studies Although economic models of training decisions are framed in terms of a company's calculation of the costs and benefits of such training, empirical work has never been able to test this model directly on company behavior. This paper utilizes a unique database to analyze the determinants of the variation in formal training across businesses and the impact of such training on labor productivity. Major findings are that large businesses, those introducing new technology end those who rely on internal promotions to fill vacancies are more likely to have formal training programs. Formal training is found to have a positive effect on labor productivity.

Link to Part 1 Link to Part 2 In this post, we’ll go into summarizing a lot of the new and important developments in the field of computer vision and convolutional neural networks. We’ll look at some of the most important papers that have been published over the last 5 years and discuss why they’re so important. The first half of the list (Alex Net to Res Net) deals with advancements in general network architecture, while the second half is just a collection of interesting papers in other subareas. The one that started it all (Though some may say that Yann Le Cun’s paper in 1998 was the real pioneering publication). This paper, titled “Image Net Classification with Deep Convolutional Networks”, has been cited a total of 6,184 times and is widely regarded as one of the most influential publications in the field. Alex Krizhevsky, Ilya Sutskever, and Geoffrey Hinton created a “large, deep convolutional neural network” that was used to win the 2012 ILSVRC (Image Net Large-Scale Visual Recognition Challenge). For those that aren’t familiar, this competition can be thought of as the annual Olympics of computer vision, where teams from across the world compete to see who has the best computer vision model for tasks such as classification, localization, detection, and more. 2012 marked the first year where a CNN was used to achieve a top 5 test error rate of 15.4% (Top 5 error is the rate at which, given an image, the model does not output the correct label with its top 5 predictions).
