It’s a headline all too familiar to HR professionals: workers fear robots will take their jobs. While there is some genuine fear to be accepted, new research finds many want to start leveraging artificial intelligence in their day-to-day job activities.

Imagine being able to train an employee how to handle a sexual harassment situation, not by lecture, but by making the person an observer of an actual case of sexual harassment.
