Employing the right person for the job is often a difficult decision. This is compounded by the need to go through hundreds sometimes thousands of applications from potential employees.
To help alleviate this problem, a team of psychologists from University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) have developed iCompetent, a trademarked psychological internet based instrument for screening potential employees with the aptitude for the job.
It is a speedy and efficient tool which utilises theories and methods of psychological tests to unravel the hidden talents of individuals, which may not be very obvious from conventional face-to-face interviews.
iCompetent is an efficient computer and internet based technology, which enables organisations to conduct selection of the best candidates at the press of a button. The inner personal competencies of think-feel-act of job applicants that you are looking for can be quickly revealed, saving both time and money.
Furthermore, as it is an internet based technology, iCompetent allows for the screening of thousands of job applications from all over the world, 24 hours a day, even when the organisation is closed for business. The research team can also tailor the system to suit different company needs.
The system was recently purchased by The Sarawak Department of Public Service.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
