OPTIMIZING HUMAN INTELLIGENCE

Alan Hosking
Executive Editor: HR Future, Osgard Media

Carl Wocke, Founder, Merylnn

 

AI, machine learning and robotics continue to play an increasing role around the world in how organisations deliver value to their customers. What if there were a way you could capture human expertise within your company and share and build this capability across all employees? What would the impact be at the candidate, employee, customer and investor interface?
 
While traditional AI systems mine data, local entrepreneurs, Carl Wocke and Alan Hosking will demonstrate a technology that mines the tacit knowledge (insight, intuition, savvy and judgement) that a human expert uses to make key decisions. They will show how this can then be scaled up to enterprise level so that a “virtual expert” is available 24/7/365 to all who need to access this tacit knowledge. It then sets your experts free to do what they do best!
