We're continuing the Future of Work discussion with this episode of TalentTalk with your host, Chris Dyer and our first guest, Quincy Valencia, Vice President of Product Innovation at AMS where Quincy and her team run Hourly, a conversational hiring experience platform. She shares stories and insight about how hourly workers have been impacted by the pandemic and what companies can do to address this impact. We go over some of the common challenges of high-volume hiring and the role automation will play in the hiring industry in 2021. We consider how companies can re-think the hourly hiring process and the technology crucial for this, and more.
Fellow tech leaders stay tuned as we welcome to the second half of the show, Ming-Hui Huang, Distinguished Professor of E-Commerce at National Taiwan University of Information Management. We talk through artificial intelligence creating a “Feeling Economy” and how jobs will change because of it, including its unprecedented power and influence for women. Will STEM be obsolete? Is there evidence in recent political elections that empathy is now key, and rationality is becoming less important? Can AI be creative? We'll chat about whether AI will ever get to the point where it is smarter than people and what is necessary to produce AI that has feeling intelligence.
