Deepfakes & the Future of Disinformation

You may have recently seen headlines about "deepfakes"—incredibly realistic video, images, and audio generated made possible by some of the recent breakthroughs in the field of artificial intelligence. These technologies have raised worries that the problems of "fake news" and online disinformation will fuel workplace discord by eroding our collective ability to distinguish fact from fiction. How much should HR leaders worry about the impact of AI-driven disinformation on the state of workplace civility? How should executives approach addressing the problems presented by these cutting-edge techniques? We dive into how modern artificial intelligence works and talk about the impact of misinformation on workplace civility and how leaders can keep deepfakes from becoming a distraction in the workplace.

Run Fearlessly into the Storm

 A storm is coming for HR. We are not yet prepared for the cyclone of AI, reskilling demands, an aging workforce and more disruption we can't predict. Moreover, in this election year we face growing challenges to civility and equity in the workplace that carry real risks to employee well-being and the safety of our larger society. Johnny will inspire us to run toward and through the storm, not run for shelter — where it will ultimately overtake us. Meeting the most difficult challenges head-on will allow us to harness and drive the outcomes that will protect our organizations, empower our people, and elevate our profession.
