Advanced technologies for HR carry enormous expectations, particularly Artificial Intelligence (AI). In this thought leadership session, we make a frank assessment of what AI could and should offer HR, along with investigations whether the hype will convert to reality. Critically, we will challenge ourselves to understand the importance of proactively defining an ethics code for this new landscape. 


  • Realistically assess the opportunity of AI for HR and share a vision for what it can and should offer HR 
  • Discuss the importance, and go over a live example, of an AI ethics code that can be used to guide internal or vendor efforts 
  • Examine HR functions where AI is already impacting organizations
