In this episode, Alan Walker speaks with Jim Stroud of ClickIQ on a whole heap of stuff – the majority of it related to hiring, much of it about AI, some of it about his shoes (or lack of).

We heard:

  • Why he sheds his shoes when presenting (think Die Hard)
  • How Bank of America increasing their minimum wage may have some unintended consequences
  • What IBM’s ability to predict whether someone is leaving – via AI – means for employees
  • Whether AI can be truly unbiased, and if it can be more or less human than humans
  • How a restaurant chain accidentally discriminated against certain communities
  • Why New York State barring marijuana testing is as much about a talent shortage as it is about relaxing drug laws
