Here’s the episode:

If you’re in the fields of HR or training and development, it’s likely that you’ve heard some about the use of artificial intelligence and gamification in organizations. Technological advancement, of course, is nothing new; however, the ways in which we can use–or misuse–technology on the people side of business continues to evolve rapidly. One of the top experts on the use of innovative technologies in assessment, employee selection, adult learning, and research methods is Richard Landers. Richard is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Minnesota where he also holds the John P. Campbell Distinguished Professorship of Industrial and Organizational Psychology. He joined us for a fascinating conversation, in which we discussed:  

  • Why technology is cool but not magic

  • Gamification and artificial intelligence

  • Implications for leaders and organizations
