Can AI help us create better assessments of intelligence, competencies, and personality? Research suggests algorithms can accurately detect personality traits based on observed behaviour. There is increasing evidence that video and game based assessments are accurate alternatives for traditional structured interviews and IQ tests. New assessment technologies are gaining ground in applied practice and we will discuss what is possible, what is ethical, and what precautions need to be taken before adapting AI based assessment solutions.

Alexandru Popa-Antohi


Alexandru Popa-Antohi, Group Leadership Development Manager for Vodaphone Group - Alexandru will be speaking about his work supporting leaders’ development in Vodafone, recent use-cases and experiments that explore the intersection between technology and coaching, and how the profession might advance with the use of disruptive technologies, including AI or VR/AR.
