We conducted a Q&A interview with Bernard Marr, best-selling author and Analytics, KPI and Big Data Guru, in the build-up to his talk at the People Analytics World event.
When people think of data, they think of numbers. However, there is plenty of video & photo data out there. How can this data become more structured? How can businesses begin to use this technology?
We conducted a Q&A interview with David Green, Global Director of People Analytics Solutions at IBM, in the build-up to his talk at the People Analytics World event.
How can an organisation looking to begin their HR analytics journey actually start from?
Richard Morecroft discusses what the term ‘digital’ means and how it encapsulates everything from the evolution of technology to the behavioural changes we’re seeing in its adoption. He then progresses on to looking at what digital transformation means for your organisation and your customer base, touching on how your organisation could adapt to digital transformation. Richard concludes by looking at why digital transformation is important now more than ever, and what the market characteristics are that we need to look out for and the opportunities organisations can embrace to succeed.
When the world began tinkering with artificial intelligence and machine learning, they were hardly a threat. Then Deep Blue and AlphaGo came along. The world began to realize that it is possible that under certain defined situations, AI could be smarter than human beings are. Then AlphaGo Zero came along and nightmares of world dominance re-emerged.
Being agile and adaptive in today's age of ecosystems and accelerated change has seen a shift in what transformations of legacy organisations look like. Time to rethink what we mean, do and measure, when we talk business transformation.
Defining ' transformation' in relation to strategies and initiatives
Our workplaces have gone through some seismic changes over the past few years and the pace of change doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon. From the invention of email sometime in the 1960s or 70s (depending on what story you believe) to instant messaging, social media, and now, artificial intelligence. We’ve come a long way since the Mad-Men-esque days of typewriters and switchboard operators.
Previously, I’ve written about how the world of recruitment has evolved. It seems that using AI could consign fantastical or over-optimised resumes to the dustbin of history, along with the Rolodex and fax machines.
But how do we go about selecting the perfect (or as close to perfect as possible) candidates from AI-created shortlists?
I can't recall who said it, or where I heard it, but it has resonated with me for a while now, providing the inspiration for the first article in this series - "uncertainty is the only certainty in business". Never has this been more relevant than in today's world of rapid change, where organisations are continuously challenged to disrupt or be disrupted.
We’ve all seen films where Artificial Intelligence replaces humans on-mass – and much debate swirls around just how much of this could ever be a reality.
Meet Erica – perhaps the world’s most advanced, human-like robot yet. She demonstrates that we may not be too far away from silver-screen-like AI workers.
Complexity as the enemy is a popular catch cry.
So what creates complexity in organisations and should strategies that generate complexity be avoided?
Here’s a quick summary of what is typically described as making organisations more complex.
People; more staff, more staff locations, multiple lines of accountability and responsibility, role duplication, diversity of workforce, more relationships with third parties / business partners / vendors.
