Nerd Words for HR - It's about making work work! Get bi-weekly updates on the recent HR Tech trends and stay close to the future of people management.

Hey fellow HR futurists,
our time is charactarized by “the digitization of just about everything” as brilliantly displayed in the book “the second machine age” (Brynjolfsson & McAfee, 2014). The essential problem for the management of people at work (aka Human Resource Management) is that most of us HR professionals tend to underestimate the rate at which technology changes the way we live and work together. 
These changes (and they are happening right now) cause profound challenges and opportunities for people management and its structural twin - the HR function. They way we adress these challenges and opportunities will determine whether there will be an HR function in the near future and what its major task will be.
The first issue of Nerd Words for HR features selected articles about robotics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. These show exciting applications of modern technology to the management of people, report about recent academic research or have far reaching consequences for the survival of the HR function.
Enjoy, feel free to share and please leave your comments for further discussions.
