Managing the change in the “Human” part of Human Resources

Managing the change in the “Human” part of Human Resources.

We know the job market is in the midst of a major transformation, one that makes things uncertain for job seekers. It is thus necessary to invent a new model, that, rather than being imposed, should be built hand-in-hand with employees themselves.

Hackathons, internal entrepreneurial project incubators, innovations and so on, these are the kinds of initiatives companies have put into place to respond to innovation and better prepare employees for the future. But within these changes lies an opportunity for Human Resources to reinvent themselves, and focus on, what really matters: the “human” part of the job.

Could You Fall in Love With an Artificial Intelligence?

“Will Julie receive a gift from a Valentine today?”

To Hollywood, the answer to that question is clearly ‘yes’ and this scenario has inspired the filmmaking industry for a while now: in 1927, Fritz Lang imagined a romance between the lead actor of Metropolis and the robot Maria! More recently, the story has been repeated in movies like HER (2013) or Ex-Machina (2015).

What does it take to go from fiction to reality?

What if Artificial Intelligence could boost the economy? [Study]

AI will destroy jobs, robots will replace humans … That’s what we often hear when we talk about the evolution of AI and the rise of robots. But what if Artificial Intelligence could actually boost the economy?

We recently conducted a study with Censuswide and asked around 1000 British citizens how they felt about AI and its impact on the automation of their calendar management tasks. One interesting thing to notice is that 47% of professionals in the UK would be interested in using Artificial Intelligence powered assistants to gain time. And how would they spend the time they saved? By going shopping or making love! Great news, right?

Let’s dig into the results.
