Littalics on Wednesday 2

Edition #3 - June 17th, 2020

Happy Wednesday!

I was fortunate to have inspiring conversations this week, with some HR-Tech experts and entrepreneurs, who encouraged me in my continuous journey towards Ethics in People Analytics. I share some of my plans, in my new article below. I'm looking forward to receiving your feedback and to continue collaborating, so please, don't hesitate to connect outside of this weekly update.
It was also a productive week in regard to reading, as you may find in the intellectual treasures I tweeted lately, some of which are quoted in this newsletter too.
Enjoy "Littalics on Wednesday", with my warm regards from sunny and humid Tel Aviv! :)

What HR Needs to Do to Get a Seat at the Table

Walking the tightrope of People Analytics – Balancing value and trust
Here's an elegant and parsimonious way to transform philosophical principles into practical instructions, when you deal with #Ethics in #PeopleAnalytics. However, is it applicable to all #AI apps that #HR uses to analyze the workforce? Especially "audit trail" - Any example? Thx!
Tools to scale your production machine learning
I think that these 3 terms are important not only to #ML developers but also to its buyers: #reproducibility, orchestration, #explainability. Especially in organizational decision-making based on people's #data. Thanks, @AxSaucedo
