Artificial Intelligence for HR: Separating the Potential from the Hype

December 2019 | Research Report

This report aims to give HR and other business leaders a basic, nontechnical foundation in AI and a deeper understanding of what AI is and isn’t. With this knowledge, they can recognize AI hype in the marketplace and realistically assess where AI might make a difference in HR’s capabilities. With a grasp of the fundamentals of AI, HR will become a more valuable partner in thinking through the optimal mix of people and technology to deliver business results.
