“At the heart of the explosion of intelligent tools and AI in our software is the explosion of data. Buried beneath the expanding flow of information, workers have needed an assist of some kind just to process and try to understand what’s important.” Read part one of John Sumser’s new series: HR Data Makes Its Own Gravy (Part 1).
