Why are we so lonely? I blame social media.

Can I ask you a personal question? Are you lonely? A recent study by CIGNA suggests that you are. They surveyed more than 20,000 U.S. adults -18 years and older and find out that nearly half of Americans sometimes or always feel alone, One in four Americans rarely or never feel as though there are people who really understand them, Two in five Americans sometimes or always feel that their relationships are not meaningful and One in five people report they rarely or never feel close to people. Why is this? I blame social media. Tune in to find out why.  | Click here to download the transcript (and links to all the resources cited in the podcast.)

PODCAST: The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence in Business

Expert in AIQuite recently, I had the very good fortune of connecting with Swathi Young on LinkedIn the other day. She is the founder of TechNotch solutions, a technology strategy and management consulting company in Washington, DC. Swathi Young helps companies leverage the power of machine learning to solve business problems; for example, fraud detection and customer service intelligent agents. And to her credit, she is quite the expert on AI and a number of emerging technologies.

On the podcast we discussed the part ethics plays in artificial intelligence; especially in relation to autonomous vehicles and facial recognition. With the possibility of bias in AI, how can we safeguard the public from the potential harm of predictive policing? How can job seekers complain about algorithmic discrimination when they are unaware it even exists? And just what is “Explainable AI?” Should companies be for or against it?

Tune in for an interesting and very thought provoking episode of The Jim Stroud Podcast! Thanks, in part, to our sponsor – NordVPN.

Podcast: Innovative Recruiting Strategies

A low employment rate is great for the USA economy but, extremely challenging for companies on the hunt for talent.  When talent is scarce, companies have to be creative when finding qualified, interested and available candidates. In episode 2 of the “World of Work” series, three case studies of companies who successfully experimented with their recruiting strategies are explored. It is sponsored by ClickIQ, the award winning, automated job advertising platform. Sources cited in this podcast can be found here.
