Artificial Intelligence Enables Humanity In Human Resources

New innovations, new technologies and new ways of thinking are driving business forward at an unprecedented pace. Digitalization changes everything. Robots will take your job. Artificial intelligence makes you an extension of a machine. Escape from your old job, because it won’t exist in 5 years anymore, and become an IT nerd while you still can!

Quite shocking phrases. Is everything above true?

In a way it is, so where did the humanity go from Human Resources?

NRDIO-HCSO call for accurate provision of statistical data on research, development and innovation expenditure

The Presidents of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office (NRDI Office) and the Hungarian Central Statistical Office (HCSO) in their joint letter encourage institutions and businesses implementing research and development projects to provide statistical data in compliance with professional standards and in a credible manner.

Institutions and businesses are required to comply with their data provision obligations until 16 March this year to enable the CSO to compile data relating to research and development expenditure.

Organisations obliged to provide data have a key role in compiling data relating to R&D expenditure in Hungary in an accurate and professional manner. R&D expenditure means the actual use of funding available for purposes of research, development and innovation (RDI). The HCSO generates national RDI-related data by summarising data collected in the questionnaires filled in by businesses, universities, research institutes and other organisations within the framework of the National Data Collection Programme (OSAP). The validity of R&D expenditure data collected by the HCSO highly depends on the quality of data provided by organisations concerned.
