Thanks for this, Michael! Really interesting to get the European context and highly relevant to the discussion on privacy in the video on Humu for class. What concerns me most is that, with the advancements in AI, particularly on untrained datasets, we do not have a firm grasp on all the use cases for the amount of data we now have on people. For this reason, by imposing very strict legislation like GDPR, we may be protecting employees, but we also may be overlooking huge opportunities to advance employees and make them more effective in their roles.
Thank you so much for sharing this, Grace! A part of me wonders how much of the rise of “new collar” workers is permanent versus a temporary band aid during a time of severe labor shortages. Time will tell if companies should ramp up skills-based hiring practices and internal training. I do think we are learning more and more that the traditional educational programs do not necessarily breed the top tech skills that would make one successful, but I could also see educational programs revising themselves to stay relevant. What surprised me is how much “new collar” workers skew male. I wonder if we need to be taking an even more critical eye for why women are not pursuing these new opportunities.
I would love to hear from others the commercial uses they say with this data!
