    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, hosts Steve Boese and Trish McFarlane kick off a special series of podcasts with our friends at Oracle HCM. On Episode 1, we are joined by Gretchen Alarcon from Oracle to talk about how organizations are increasingly seeking to make work more "human".While you may have seen this concept before, on the show we break it down to more tangible, actionable, and relatable ideas for HR leaders, and highlight some key ideas, considerations, and approaches to creating more "human" workplaces. 

    On the show, we talk about three distinct elements of creating more human workplaces and making work more human - making work enjoyable, making work smarter, and finally, making work supportive. With each concept Gretchen shares insights and practical approaches that HR leaders can take, and discusses how innovation in HCM technology supports, augments, and provides important context for these initiatives.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 319 - HR is About Making Predictions: Understanding AI for HR

    HR Happy Hour 319 - Understanding Artificial Intelligence for Business and HR

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest: Joshua Gans, University of Toronto

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by Joshua Gans, Professor of Strategic Management at the University of Toronto, and co-author of the new book, Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence.

    On the show, Joshua gives his easy to grasp definition of Artificial Intelligence, how AI is really about lowering the costs of and increasing the availability and ability to create more predictions about outcomes. These outcomes could be about predicting tomorrow's weather, teaching a self-driving car how to react to changing conditions, or even helping HR and Talent leaders predict who might be the best candidate for a job, or who might be a better fit on the team.

    Joshua breaks down how HR and business leaders should think about AI, how and where to see and understand its impact on business, the need for human judgment, and how to assess and be aware of the hidden dangers and potential biases in AI technology. This was the most lively and engaging (and accessible) conversation about AI I have ever had, and I think any HR or business leader will appreciate the easy, casual way Joshua explains complex topics.

    We also talked 'War Games', (the movie), Moneyball, the pain of teaching a teenager how to drive.
