Find the right person to help supercharge your career. Whether you’re eyeing a specific leadership role, hoping to advance your skills, or simply looking to broaden your professional network, you need to find someone who can help. Wait for a senior manager to come looking for you–and you’ll probably be waiting forever. Instead, you need to find the mentoring that will help you achieve your goals. Managed correctly, mentoring is a powerful and efficient tool for moving up.

The “HBR Guide to Getting the Mentoring You Need” will help you get it right. You’ll learn how to:

(1) Find new ways to stand out in your organization

(2) Set clear and realistic development goals

(3) Identify and build relationships with influential sponsors

(4) Give back and bring value to mentors and senior advisers, and

(5) Evaluate your progress in reaching your professional goals.

[Recommended Reading] Artificial Intelligence

Source: Artificial Intelligence Wikipedia

“Artificial intelligence (AI, also machine intelligenceMI) is intelligence exhibited by machines, rather than humans or other animals (natural intelligence, NI). In computer science, the field of AI research defines itself as the study of “intelligent agents”: any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal.[1] Colloquially, the term “artificial intelligence” is applied when a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as “learning” and “problem solving”.[2]Read more…

[Recommended Reading] Quantum computing

Source: Quantum Computing Wikipedia

“Quantum computing studies theoretical computation systems (quantum computers) that make direct use of quantum-mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform operations on data.[1] Quantum computers are different from binary digital electronic computers based on transistors. Whereas common digital computing requires that the data be encoded into binary digits (bits), each of which is always in one of two definite states (0 or 1), quantum computation uses quantum bits, which can be in superpositions of states. A quantum Turing machine is a theoretical model of such a computer, and is also known as the universal quantum computer. The field of quantum computing was initiated by the work of Paul Benioff[2] and Yuri Manin in 1980,[3] Richard Feynman in 1982,[4] and David Deutsch in 1985.[5] A quantum computer with spins as quantum bits was also formulated for use as a quantum spacetime in 1968.
