Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Practical Applications for Talent Development

Peel away the hype surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to find the practical applications of these technologies in talent development and corporate training. You don’t have to be an AI expert to know that your company needs to wrestle all the data you have on your employees and training programs to gain contextual intelligence and knowledge about how to improve your workforce.

This session provides provocative, research-grounded explorations of the future of work, leadership, essential enterprise capabilities, and the role of HR/OD/LD professionals in helping to build and support the Future Fit Organization. This session, while presenting research, generative questions, leading-edge models, and actionable advice, also stresses quality dialogue with and among participants. Its purpose is to activate, stimulate, and motivate participants to initiate new work back “home” that can begin to reshape their organizations for the future.
