Technology is the talk of the town these days.  Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the sexy new technology that HR professionals like to ignore.  On February 9th, join HR Alliance as we present a program on Artificial Intelligence and Human Resources - The Human Side of AI.  Our own Lisa Johnson, Vice President of Human Resources at KACE, will be joined by Dr. Allen Badeau, Chief Technology Officer at NCI Information Systems to discuss the intersection of human and artificial intelligence and how modern human capital experts should be thinking about AI.  

We promise a lively discussion that will show how:

  • AI is impacting the labor force
  • HR professionals should be thinking about AI to digitalize the workplace and improve operations
  • AI can influence the employee experience and, yes – even, employee engagement.

Join us and learn how to drive Human Capital AI in your organization.  This program will also include live demonstrations of a couple of AI tools.

  • Dr. Allen E. Badeau Jr, PhD, PMP, Chief Technology Officer / Senior Vice President and Director, NCI Create Lab
