When Your Colleague Could be a Bot – OD in the Time of Artificial Intelligence – June 17, 2020

When Your Colleague Could be a Bot – OD in the Time of Artificial Intelligence – June 17, 2020

It has been estimated that the disruption of society by Artificial Intelligence (AI) – machines engineered to have human-like intelligence – is happening 10 times faster and at 300 times the scale of the industrial revolution of the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

Today, thanks to AI, Siri answers our questions, Safety Sense 2.0 drives our Toyotas, Google Translate bridges cultures, and AlphaGo is the world champion of Go, a 2,500-year-old game with more move choices than the number of atoms in the observable universe.

Join Tom (and maybe an AI guest or two!) to explore:

  • What is AI?
  • What can it do?
  • How is it affecting the world of work?
  • What new challenges will the OD and HR professions face during this revolution?
  • How can AI empower employees, leaders, and HR/OD professionals?
