Dr Kathleen Allen: Leading from the Roots

Are you ready for a fascinating conversation? Hold on to your earbuds because your mind is about to be rattled.

As we stretch out into the not so distant future of machine learning and sitting at the feet of the A.I gods… 

Will we know how to stay in touch with “why” we’re doing what we’re doing, and with the people/humans within our organization?

Through Artificial Intelligence and machine learning we are already looking at how to be more efficient as businesses and as organizations

The question is have we stopped to consider the potential cost to us at not only a corporate, but at a human level? 

With the integration of more and more A.I will we know how to stay in touch with why we’re doing what we’re doing. Moreover, will we be able to stay emotionally connected to the people within our organization? 

What if we had access to 3.8 billion years of research that you could tap into to assist us? 

Well let’s find out together…
