How to win at the AI talent gold rush

Credera is excited to announce the release of a new Technology Tangents podcast episode: "How to win at the AI talent gold rush."

On this episode 

AI talent is the need of the hour. Silicon Valley is seeing unprecedented compensation packages to secure AI talent, and some companies are buying entire AI divisions from other organizations. It's been a mad dash to gobble up whatever AI talent organizations can find.

And while the AI boom is unique for several reasons, there are parallels with past tech revolutions, such as the internet boom of the late '90s and early 2000s. Both periods saw a surge in demand for specific skill sets—web development, e-commerce, and machine learning now. However, the scale and speed of the AI boom, fueled by advancements in computational power and data availability, is unprecedented.

With such high stakes, how should companies navigate this landscape and ensure ROI on AI talent investments?

Vincent Yates, Jason Goth, and Kevin Erickson, three senior leaders are Credera, deep dive into the AI talent wars.

Show outline:

  • Intro 

  • 0:30 – The AI talent gold rush & the Gartner hype cycle

In Technology Tangents, Credera's Chief Technology Officer and Chief Data Officer bring leaders together to discuss the modern technologies of today and how organizations should navigate the implications for tomorrow.

The discussions are fun, light-hearted, and frankly opinionated, but hopefully it gives technology leaders a sense of what matters, what to pay attention to, and what to ignore.
