Artificial intelligence has long been the holy grail of technological improvement.

of 2018 and promises to continue into the new year. Narrow A.I. consists of highly specialized machine- learning solutions that target a specific task like driving a vehicle or understanding written or auditory language.

From intelligent advertising to photo searches to self-driving or assisted driving cars, A.I. is continually improving (5)

the technology behind it is improved.

Businesses should focus on the outcomes enabled by applications that currently utilize A.I. in the offerings. (6)

V. In the following text, six sentences have been removed. Choose, from the sentences (A- G), the one which fits each gap (1-6). Remember, there is one extra part you do not need to use. (1.5 pts)

A. These protects both the employer and the employee and mean that there is certainty about those terms and conditions

B. This is the extent to which you can profit from the investment you have made in your business C. A buyer will want to see vast quantities of information and documentation on the business

D. The most frequent example of this is when significant pieces of machinery and equipment are subject to financing arrangements and the consent of the financier is necessary

E. They should be short and simple, and full agreement should be negotiated with the buyer as soon as possible.

F. This can be difficult, though, and if staff find out about the sale it can unsettle them

G. You do not want a potential buyer using this confidential information either in the course of negotiations or after negotiations have broken down.

If you plan to sell your business, be careful. They are an enormous number of traps awaiting the inexperienced seller. Before giving out any information about the business to any potential purchaser, make sure I have signed a confidentiality undertaking- that is, a document promising not to make confidential information public. (1) ________. Many confidentiality letters, however, have no legal value, so taking appropriate advice is recommended.

You should also consider your strategy for informing your staff of the proposed sale. Most


business owners want to keep the sale secret from their employees until the deal has been completed - or at least until negotiations are fairly advanced. (2) In addition, you will need to produce a considerable amount of information about the business and is running; for this you will require the cooperation of senior management, who will therefore need to be informed of the sale.

When corresponding with a potential purchaser, mark everything "Subject to Contract". Contracts can be made accidentally and you do not want to be committed until a formal contract, including all of the relevant terms, has been negotiated and signed. To avoid this, many people negotiate a summary document, which briefly sets out the main conditions of the sale. These documents can be useful because potential area of dispute or disagreement can be seen in advance. (3)

Do remember

however that a summary rarely deals with all the points for discussion, which are going to arise in the course of negotiations.

Make sure all the paperwork is in order. (4)

It is vital therefore that you ensure all insurance policies bank statements, finance documents, and employment, supplier and customer contracts are well ordered and up-to-date. This will save everyone a lot of time.

In addition, make sure that all staff have up-to-date contracts of employment. An employer must, by law, issue statements of terms of employment to all employees within two months of their starting work. (5)

Even if you fail to issue them, the buyer will still expect you to be able to identify with certainty what the terms and conditions are. The absence of written contracts makes that much more difficult.

You may also need the approval of people entirely external to the business for the sale to take place. (6)

Getting such a agreement generally takes time, so you will need to move quickly if

a buyer wants it done before completing the deal.

Interpreting the feelings of other people is not always easy, as we know, and we rely as much on what they seem to be telling us, as on the (1) words they say. Facial expression and tone of voice are obvious ways of showing our (2)

reluctant to answer our question, and

so we stop pressing them. Body movements in general may also indicate feelings, and interviewers often pay particular attention to the way a candidate for a job walks into the room and sits down. However, it is not difficult to present the right kind of appearance, while what many employers want to know relates to the candidate's character (5)

and psychological stability. This raises the (6)

question of whether job candidates should be asked to complete psychological tests, and the further problem of whether such tests actually produce reliable results. For many people, being asked to take part in such a test would be an objectionable (7)

VII. Read an article about two brothers who have written a book. For questions 1-8, CIRCLE the letter A, B, C or D which you think fits best according to the text. (2.0 pts)


Rebecca Pearson meets the team behind a lively new thriller.

What were you doing at the age of 11? Playing football? Possibly. Watching TV? Probably. Working on a novel as well? Unlikely- unless you're Jamie Webb, author of the brilliant new 272-page novel The Inventors. He wasn't on his own, however, because he co-authored The Inventors with his much older brother, Alexander Gordon Smith, who is in his twenties.

We had arranged to meet in a café and, within minutes of arriving, I spot the brothers easily as they are both wearing matching black Inventors promotional T-shirts. The queue for drinks is huge, but, despite the fact that I am ten minutes early, they have already bought me a selection of drinks to save me joining the line. New to the whole publicity business, they admit they're a bit nervous about the interview. Let's start by talking about the book, then, I suggest.

The Inventors is an exciting tale about two best friends, who have a passion for creating weird and wonderful machines. "I woke up with the idea in my head one morning, "says Smith," and I just ran round to tell Jamie. Then, from the word go there was no question of me doing it by myself- it developed so well between us. One of us would suggest something and then the other one would take it and develop it. Often we would talk for hours before we actually wrote anything down. If I'd done it by myself, it wouldn't be anywhere near what it is".

It emerges that Webb is a much better inventor than Smith. Certainly some of the creations in the book are very vivid, far more so than in comparable novels. You certainly wouldn't put it past Webb to become an engineering mastermind; as well as the writing, he's also keen on acting and Tae Kwon Do, but says he doesn't want to put himself into one artistic box just yet.

Smith and Webb have every sympathy for writers trying to get a foot in the door and it was a stroke of luck that led to the publication of The Inventors. The brothers had written the first three chapters of the book with no idea what to do with it when Webb spotted the Wow Factor competition, which is run by the publisher Faber and the bookshop Waterstone's. "It was on the last day when Jamie noticed it," says Smith, "and so we got our entry in just in time, and then we didn't think anything more of it. We were on the shortlist: we didn't win but Faber ended up taking the book on". And that was their big break because since then they've gone from strength to strength.

So, I ask, if the book goes on to become as successful as the Harry Potter books, might Webb take all the credit? They both laugh. "If we ever make millions," Smith points out, "maybe we will end up arguing over that as we both know that if Jamie hadn't sent the first three chapters in, it wouldn't have been published. But then we both know I had the original idea."

Smith has advice for people who want to write but don't know how. "Remember that everything has a story, and as a writer it's up to you to imagine what that story is. Look at what's happening around you, say next time you're walking down the street, and think of ways this could be used in a book. Also, don't put too much pressure on yourself- writing takes time, so don't be disheartened if you don't write a masterpiece straight away". He says that when he's not writing, he's often trying to unravel a tricky plot in his head or invent a new character or machine. "That's the best thing about being a writer- you can spend all your time daydreaming and call it work!"

Once I stop the recording, the brothers are visibly relieved, and ask if they have done OK. They then invite me to their launch party in a few days' time. Grinning broadly at each other and shaking their heads, they say they still wonder if they're dreaming. Are they the nicest authors in the business? Probably. And that's no invention.
