32: 3 Stories that Highlight the Impact of AI on Human Resources

May 8, 2018

If you and I have had a conversation in the last six months, there's a good chance we talked about AI in some form or fashion. Artificial intelligence, algorithms, bots, and other tools are making inroads within the HR, talent, and learning professions. And for good reason--they bring automation, insight, and tireless effort to a wide variety of tasks and processes. 

In today's solo episode, I talk about three stories that really exemplify the value of AI for human resources. The first focuses on Uber drivers "rebellion" against being managed by an algorithm. The second talks about a university professor that builds a bot to support his students' questions and needs. The last explores the question of human versus machine in a recruiting context.
