Recent advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) have enabled algorithms to undertake tasks that previously required human judgement and decision. This project aims to advance understanding of how organizations can integrate fast, accurate and low-cost predictions provided by AI into strategic functions in order to enhance productivity, reduce coordination costs and improve knowledge sharing.
In particular, the project focus lies on the application of AI for people analytics functions such as recruitment, well-being monitoring, and coaching. The introduction of AI into human resources functions is challenging due to the unique characteristics of AI algorithms; their opaqueness, embedded bias and autonomous nature reshape the way individual users and organizations perceive trust and fairness. In collaboration with UBS, you will investigate various applications of AI in organizations, which have a key strategic importance yet remain underexplored.
