HR by spreadsheet vs. HR by algorithm

If you are human resources manager, your job is obsolete — you are no longer needed. It is only a matter of time before you are shown the door. The automation in human resources — the process of enhancing the efficiency of the HR departments by freeing employees from tedious manual tasks — is already here.

The shock doctrine

Human resources management — or rather, human-managed hiring and onboarding — is dead. I don’t know the exact date; but what I am sure about is that one day they dragged it out of its cubicle; took it to the back of the building, near the loading docks and put a metaphorical bullet in its skull.

They then dumped its body in a recycling bin; along with decommissioned 80386-based PCs, daisy wheel printers and boxes of un-opened DynaTAC 8000X “mobile” phones. After years of faithful service, it met its end by being unceremoniously dumped like yesterday’s coffee.

My apologies for my bedside manners, but the automation in human resources — the process of enhancing the efficiency of the HR department by freeing employees from tedious manual tasks — is already here.

“Kitty couldn’t fall asleep for a long time. Her nerves were strained as two tight strings, and even a glass of hot wine, that Vronsky made her drink, did not help her. Lying in bed she kept going over and over that monstrous scene at the meadow.”²,³

How it all began

If you are human resources manager, your job is obsolete — you are no longer needed. It is only a matter of time before you are shown the door, if you have not been fired already. Do not be shocked. This was a long time coming and you saw the first signs of it long ago — you just refused to believe you were next.

Allow me to explain: a recent study¹ on the changing roles of the Human Resources professional found that 50% of respondents believed that traditional Human Resources functions would, “…continue to grow into a more strategic function as administrative responsibilities are automated or outsourced to others…”

In early 2008, newspapers around the world published a story that created a minor buzz. It claimed that a Russian publishing house — Astrel SPb — was releasing a book completely written by a computer.

The book was to be called True Love and was a variation of the classic novel Anna Karenina written in the style of Haruki Murakami. It was widely reported the publisher claimed a group of Russian developers and philologists collaborated to create a computer program that generated the manuscript.

In early 2016, Nishad Nawaz, a researcher at The Kingdom University in Bahrain published a paper titled, Automation of the HR functions enhance the professional efficiency of the HR Professionals-A Review. In the abstract, Mr. Nawaz states,

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

PWA vs Native App: Which Is Better Option In 2021?

Every year, the world is expanding with the launch of new smartphones and other gadgets available in the market. According to Statista, more than 50% of the population will be using smartphones by the end of 2021.

Hence, businesses worldwide have understood the importance of smartphones and are joining the mobile industry by launching native apps.

Apart from native apps, progressive web apps is another technology that is gaining a lot of attention among businesses. Moreover, various leading companies worldwide have openly accepted PWA and built progressive web apps.

Now, the question arises, how is PWA different from the native apps? Read More

A greedy algorithm is a simple

The Greedy Method is an approach for solving certain types of optimization problems. The greedy algorithm chooses the optimum result at each stage. While this works the majority of the times, there are numerous examples where the greedy approach is not the correct approach. For example, let’s say that you’re taking the greedy algorithm approach to earning money at a certain point in your life. You graduate high school and have two options:

KMP — Pattern Matching Algorithm

Finding a certain piece of text inside a document represents an important feature nowadays. This is widely used in many practical things that we regularly do in our everyday lives, such as searching for something on Google or even plagiarism. In small texts, the algorithm used for pattern matching doesn’t require a certain complexity to behave well. However, big processes like searching the word ‘cake’ in a 300 pages book can take a lot of time if a naive algorithm is used.

The naive algorithm

Before, talking about KMP, we should analyze the inefficient approach for finding a sequence of characters into a text. This algorithm slides over the text one by one to check for a match. The complexity provided by this solution is O (m * (n — m + 1)), where m is the length of the pattern and n the length of the text.

Find all the occurrences of string pat in string txt (naive algorithm).

#include <iostream>
	#include <string>
	#include <algorithm>
	using namespace std;

	string pat = "ABA"; // the pattern
	string txt = "CABBCABABAB"; // the text in which we are searching

	bool checkForPattern(int index, int patLength) {
	    int i;
	    // checks if characters from pat are different from those in txt
	    for(i = 0; i < patLength; i++) {
	        if(txt[index + i] != pat[i]) {
	            return false;
	        }
	    }
	    return true;
	}

	void findPattern() {
	    int patternLength = pat.size();
	    int textLength = txt.size();

	    for(int i = 0; i <= textLength - patternLength; i++) {
	        // check for every index if there is a match
	        if(checkForPattern(i,patternLength)) {
	            cout << "Pattern at index " << i << "\n";
	        }
	    }

	}

	int main() 
	{
	    findPattern();
	    return 0;
	}

KMP approach

This algorithm is based on a degenerating property that uses the fact that our pattern has some sub-patterns appearing more than once. This approach is significantly improving our complexity to linear time. The idea is when we find a mismatch, we already know some of the characters in the next searching window. This way we save time by skip matching the characters that we already know will surely match. To know when to skip, we need to pre-process an auxiliary array prePos in our pattern. prePos will hold integer values that will tell us the count of characters to be jumped. This supporting array can be described as the longest proper prefix that is also a suffix.
