Gizmodo - Google's Creepy New Algorithm Knows If You're Going to Quit Your Job Before You Do - Google

[My Japanese-English translations.]

The Google invented an algorithm which analyzes "Who will probably quit their job next from 20 thousands employee in Google Company."

It is hideous.

Analysis is based on employee's autocriticism, assessment by peers, the history of advancement and salary.

Now is on the test, but they already found who thought he couldn't make the best of his ability (one of the reasons of quitting)

This algorithm was invented to address the actual state which the best peers quit their job, so it won't be used for houseclean who have a beef to the company.

しかし、ここ数週間でまた広告営業のティム・アームストロング(Tim Armstrong)とディスプレイ広告のデヴィッド・ローゼンブラッド(David Rosenblatt)が辞めてます...。
But account planner Tim Armstrong, and display advertisementator David Rosenblatt quitted their job in these weeks.

It's really hideous.

Machine check the employee's mind and pick up the cockles of their hearts whose were perhaps known by themselves, and tell the top.

It's not so bad when they really quit, but it's terrible for us to be identified as who have the most possibility of quitting in the department and to leave in the cold before they give in their notice.

I think there are many people who have said "I'll quit my job" since the entered the company but haven't quit yet.

But this may be only the starts.

Newsday’s computers even know whether an employee will quit.

Next, it may be going not take in people who may quit from first, and taking will be on the computers.

After generations, the machine will decide whether they should be disemployed all people on the earth. and...

It's not time to do it, robot's insurgence will occur.

もしそんなことになったら最初のきっかけ作ったのはグーグルですからね、頼みますよ!If it will be true, it's the Google who make the first step.
