While PWC’s latest report on the impact of AI and automation focuses on how robots will take our jobs, a different finding drew our interest. ‘Learning mishaps’ occur when a machine doesn’t have all of the information but gives a recommendation or makes a decision anyway. John Sumser has more in, Preparing for the Change or Machines Have Bad H(AI)R Days.


“Why is it so hard for marketing people to understand that any surveys they generate will always be suspect?” Survey Says: John Sumser isn’t having any.


HRIntelligencer 2.10 Highlights: This week is another layer of myth-busting. Great management comes from anticipating the worst case while preparing to execute the best. Our droning-on about the risks of AI is the best way I know to get you ready for the inevitable.


John Sumser speaks with Heather Bussing about the intersection of technology and people (notably, bias in new technologies). Heather is an employment lawyer, writer, and photographer. Listen to Heather Bussing on HRExaminer Radio.

Survey Says

On March 15, 2018, in HRExaminer, by John Sumser
“Why is it so hard for marketing people to understand that any surveys they generate will always be suspect? Of course, your survey supports your point of view. Of course, you are going to ask a biased sample a set of biased questions to generate a biased outcome. And, even if you didn’t, who is going to believe you didn’t?” – John Sumser

On March 9, 2018, in HR Technology, HRExaminer, Radio, Weekly, by John Sumser
“Harnessing AI requires a different kind of thinking. This is not more of the same old software. The products and services offered in HR Tech under the rubric of AI make decisions and recommendations that used to be the province of human beings. We don’t really know if they are any good at it. We don’t really understand the consequences of using the tools.” John Sumser takes us through the looking glass in, A(lice) I(n) Wonderland.
