Workday: AI, machine learning must be ethical, trustworthy to succeed
If you follow the goings-on of technology companies, you may have seen Workday report its earnings August 24.
If you didn’t catch the bouyant earnings call with Aneel Bhusri and Carl Eschenbach, Co-CEOs, and CFO Zane Rowe, you may have missed Eschenbach mentioning the importance of skills-based talent strategies to its company and its future.
And you may have missed Bhusri talk about the importance of AI and machine learning to Workday’s strategy. He emphasized – multiple times – the importance of any artificial intelligence Workday uses being ethical and trustworthy. “The true potential of AI and ML can only be met by ensuring that is leveraged in a trustworthy and ethical way,” Bhusri said. He talked about Workday’s data quality, its growing use of generative AI, and how important generative AI will be for the satisfaction of its customers and its future.
