Imagine a spider chart mapping a complex web of interactions, sentiments, and workflow within an office. What would your company look like?
When most of us think of artificial intelligence in the workplace, we imagine automated assembly lines of robots managed by an algorithm. LinkedIn’s Reid Hoffman has a different idea.
In an essay for MIT Sloan Management Review, Hoffman describes human applications for the technology. Among other things, it would help to use data science to improve the way we onboard new team members, organize workflow, and communicate about performance. Addressing the question of how technology will change management practices over the next five years, Hoffman explains how the use of a “knowledge graph” will become standard management practice.
