Eightfold CEO and Co-founder Ashutosh Garg explains to Josh Bersin how organizations can scale the use of AI to improve talent networks and become more competitive in their industries.
How do you think HR people should explain AI to their function, their peers?
The simplest way I would say is “think of AI as a human being who can read all the text that is out there in the world, make sense out of it, can access it in real time and help with decision making.” But at the same time, the person is a human being. So it will make mistakes. So it will have flaws in their thinking and approaches. A highly scalable human being is how I think of it, right? Or I think of AI as assisted intelligence, not artificial intelligence, right? It’s not magic. But it can do a lot. It’s now and here. It is here to help you scale and do your job consistently at scale on an ongoing basis. Help you adopt access to changing realities. The world is moving fast. And if you don’t do it, you’re going to be left behind.
