Happy Wednesday!

I write about AI Ethics in the work context and offer a monthly dose of resources on the topic. I hope to see more executives interested in learning about AI bias. There is no need to be a data scientist to learn. Yet the responsibility to close the knowledge gaps rests with business leaders. It is an essential part of their social responsibility. Digital transformation should benefit everyone. Keep demanding in-depth content about this topic, following resources and reports, and gaining confidence to ask your vendors hard questions.


Thoughts and Articles

To face both technical and social difficulties related to AI, every HR leader should start understanding 5 themes: What AI is – or isn’t? How accurate is AI? Why AI prone to bias? How people react to AI? How legal frameworks deal with AI?

I'm happy to update that I recently returned to offer research services remotely. After spending time teaching, I realized that my skills and experience as a data scientist and applied researcher still complement most human resources and organizational development teams' capabilities. My primary analytical tool will remain R. I would love to hear about your organizational research journey and hope to find an opportunity to collaborate on a project.
