Jon Krohn on Recruiting Future Podcast #547

HR Tech

Our Chief Data Scientist, Jon Krohn, was a guest on The Recruiting Future Podcast. In it, he introduces the key Generative A.I.-related terms (e.g., Deep Learning, Transformers) and uses examples from Nebula to illustrate how Gen A.I. is overhauling industries.

The show’s polished host, Matt Alder, said that the “conversation was eye-opening for me… it is a compulsory listen for everyone working in Talent Acquisition.”

Could be a useful listen if you’re looking to understand what Generative A.I. is in general and/or how Gen A.I. is making B2B SaaS products suddenly feel magical. The topics we covered were:

• Developments in A.I. over the last three years
• Hype vs Impact
• The development of the transformer architecture that facilitates ChatGPT
• Why the jump from GPT-3.5 to GPT-4 was incredibly significant
• Other notable examples of Large Language Models (LLMs)
• Is artificial general intelligence (AGI) possible in our lifetimes?
• The immediate implications for Talent Acquisition
• How LLMs will supercharge vendor innovation
• The importance of TA Leaders embracing A.I.
• Are we heading towards a utopia or a dystopia?

The Recruiting Future Podcast is available on all major podcast platforms.
