It's the week of #HRTechConf, y'all

Sep 10, 2018 8:50:17 PM / by Mary Faulkner

This week, thousands of people are descending upon Las Vegas for the 2018 HR Technology Conference. It's a remarkably large conference that explores all aspects of how technology impacts business and people. You might think it's just about product demos (and those will be there), but there's so much more.

One thing I'm particularly excited about is the continued exploration about the intersection of human bias and artificial intelligence (in whatever way you want to to define it). Technology is a product of its creators, and its creators sometimes make horrible decisions. We are at an important crossroads - will we be able to use technology to enhance our human interactions or will we use it to avoid them?

I'll be sharing my observations from the Expo Floor, the sessions, and all the interactions I'll have with all the HR practitioner end users who are struggling to make sense of how to make technology work FOR them in the workplace.

Follow me on Twitter at @mfaulkner43 or all the people tweeting on the #HRTechConf hashtag this week. I'll also be blogging from the conference, along with a group of incredibly talented and smart bloggers posting to the conference blog site.

Is there something you want to learn more about? Send me a DM and I'll try to check it out!
