In addition to checking student work for matches across billions of web pages and books, originality reports can now check for matches against a repository of student work within your domain. 

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: Google search made it easy for a generation of students to "borrow" content from others in order to get "inspiration" for their reports. Now Google also provides teachers with tools to automatically check what is unique and what is not in automated fashion. Why is this not included in WORD or Google DOCS to automatically verify what is truly unique in documents you receive, say from consultants like me? Oh no, many would find this not a good idea I'm sure... ;-)

The bottom line: corporate leaders, knowingly or not, are on the cusp of a major disruption in their sources of advice and information. “Quant Consultants” and “Robo Advisers” will offer faster, better, and more profound insights at a fraction of the cost and time of today’s consulting firms and other specialized workers. It is likely only a matter of time until all leaders and management teams can ask Alexa things like, “Who is the biggest risk to me in our key market?”, “How should we allocate our capital to compete with Amazon?” or “How should I restructure my board?”

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: AI will most likely augment our capabilities before replacing us altogether. This paper explores what it may mean to have a specialized assistant next to you for your professional tasks and activities..
