DIGITAL 101 – DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES
The concept of Digital Transformation can be described as adopting business processes and practices to help the organization compete effectively in an increasingly digital world.  This definition of digital transformation has two important implications for managers: First, it means that digital transformation is fundamentally about how your business responds to digital trends that are occurring whether or not you initiated them, like them, or want them.  Second, it means that how an organization implements technology is only a small part of digital transformation. In cases where digital transformation does involve implementing new technologies, technology is only part of the story.  The digital transformation requires that institutions and all its workflows and org charts be transformed in order to build and sustain digital services. Thus, there is a clear need to provide capacity building to all stakeholders in various areas associated with the digital transformation.

Artificial Intelligence for Job Seeking: How to Enhance Labor Intermediation in Public Employment Services (Executive Summary)
One of the main challenges of employment services -in particular labor intermediation systems- is to facilitate the adequate matching between the required skills in open vacancies and those that job seekers have. This challenge stems in part from the difficulty of matching the skills, competencies, education, and job experience that a candidate reports to have, with the functions the potential employer wants to assign to this prospect employee. This document presents a summary of the analysis of how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used as a tool to enhance the matching approach, to the extent of considering the existing relations in various occupations, which can include more information in the analysis of the profiles of job candidates. This document is part of the fAIr LAC initiative studies of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). Its objective is to promote the ethical and responsible use of technology in artificial intelligence-based systems in the region, especially those that relate to the provision of social services.
