Demystifying the AI Black Box, Frameworks and Tool Time for L&D Professionals

Wednesday, October 4, 2023

at Fairfield University

6:30 - 8:00 pm

Networking 6:30 - 7 pm | Presentation/Q&A 7 - 8 pm


Members: $5 | Non-Members: $15 | Students: Free 

Program Description:

In today's tumultuous and technology-driven world, Human Resources (HR) professionals face the exhilarating challenge of harnessing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to revolutionize Learning and Development (L&D).

Just what’s in that “black AI box?” Our presentation, Demystifying the AI Black Box, Key Frameworks and Tool Time for L&D Professionals, will explore the transformative power of AI in shaping the future of workplace training, learning and development.

AI is no longer confined to science fiction; it's a dynamic approach that's increasingly integrated into HR practices. We'll dive into the ways AI is enhancing L&D, from machine learning to personalized learning pathways and real-time feedback to predictive analytics that optimize training programs. We'll demonstrate how chatbots and virtual mentors can provide on-demand support, fostering continuous learning cultures. During Tool Time, we’ll recommend some of the top AI-L&D tools that you’ll want to consider for your tool kit.

Moreover, our discussion will touch on the ethical considerations surrounding AI in L&D. We'll examine data privacy, algorithmic bias, and transparency to ensure that AI-powered training remains both effective and responsible.

Chapter update: 

Membership is down for 2022 and financially the chapter has remained in good standing with small operating expenses due to virtual events.

The chapter’s programming remains strong, and the number of people attending the meetings has also remained strong. The top 4 reasons why people love attending our events are: 1. networking 2. learn what companies are doing 3. professional development 4. cutting edge research and insight.
