Our mission is to unlock the limitless potential of the global workforce by accelerating the responsible and ethical use of AI in the enterprise. About our Host: Jon Knisley is your host for the hello, Human podcast. He’s been a technologist his entire career working at the intersection of business and IT, bringing first-in-class technologies to some on the largest enterprises in the world. From a shelf-scanning application to verify product placement for a CPG company to automatically assessing weld quality for an automobile manufacturer, he’s had a front row seat to how emerging AI can deliver value for business of all shapes and sizes.

This season on hello, Human, we’re going to be talking with the leading builders, explorers and warriors of AI solutions that are having an impact today and making a difference in their companies or with their clients. Upcoming episodes tackle a framework for establishing a resilient digital core, tactics to guarantee privacy in the age of AI, when AI will finally disrupt biopharma, and planning for human-bot teaming. And I can promise much much more.

Generally, the hello, Human podcast will provide a more Utopian view of technology and the impact it can have on our work and society. We’re not Pollyannas but we’ve been through enough cycles and around the block enough times to have developed a favorable view of what technology can accomplish. Because we are biologically programmed to look for danger, it’s easy to fear what the future may hold. But we’ll leave the more dystopian view of technology to Hollywood and explore the applied AI landscape broadly for its ability to advance humanity.

If you’ve made it this far, you are probably wondering why “hello, Human.” It’s a play on the common introduction to computer programming where a few lines of code is written to display “hello World” on the screen. But we’re focused on AI and improving the understanding of the opportunities presented by the technology. So it’s “hello, Human” to help jumpstart an intelligent conversation and share with you the leading voices in AI today.

Episodes will run approximately 20-minutes and will be released every two weeks. We look forward to sharing our guests’ knowledge and insights with you and welcome your feedback and recommendations anytime. Thanks again to FortressIQ for sponsoring the program. Subscribe today anywhere you listen to podcasts. Welcome and thanks for listening.
