Event Details

Will AI take over HR? Is HR ready to incorporate AI? Over a panel discussion, we will try to discover the answers.

About this Event

We are launching our first Hacking HR Vienna Chapter Meet-up in Vienna. This event focuses on bringing Human Resources and Artificial Intelligence together: in a panel discussion we will discover the pros and cons of AI and its connection to HR.

AI has already influenced our daily lives and changed the way we accept decisions when it comes to daily commute, shopping, or even communicating. Yet, HR has some concerns when it comes to applying AI in its processes. AI has the potential to influence and improve work that conventional HR did so far. With our panelists, we will try to uncover the potential benefits, but also threats and open a debate in order to answer the question: AI is here, is HR ready?
