Fireside chat: The AI gold rush

    Two leading female protagonists in AI are taking to the stage at Ai everything to debate the key issues surrounding AI and how organisations can prepare for and harness it ethically.  In a ‘fireside’ style chat with author Katie King, Caroline Gorski, CEO of R² Factory, will share her thoughts on the impact AI is having; ways for organisations to successfully adopt this technology into their cultures, and methods for achieving differentiation in the ‘AI gold rush.’ 

    Gorski is a leading contributor to King’s recently published book AI Strategy for Sales and Marketing, published by Kogan Page. Here’s a brief extract: “It doesn't matter how much high performance computing you can buy or how well structured your data is. If you haven't got a workforce that is able to actually adopt artificially intelligent work streams, you are not going to get very far with your AI strategy. A cultural transformation needs to happen to make sure that we understand

Brisk Olive case study: How AI is proving the case for higher employment through better job fitment

  • Brisk Olive, a field force of 25,000+ ex-soldiers to expand to 100,000 by the financial year-end 2022-23 is driving its conversion rations up  by using AI to "better fit" ex-soldiers to corporate jobs, temporary staffing, and temporary services requirements. A similar approach –  applied to better career fitment in general – would increase the employability of the workforce, rather than reduce it.
  • Applying machine learning for better talent fitment of a network of 25,000 ex-soldiers at Brisk Olive, to jobs, temporary staffing and  temporary services requirements
  • Ensuring better job satisfaction for employees and better performance for clients – leading to better employability and growth
