Why Smart Machines Will Boost Emotional Intelligence

January 25, 2017View for printing

In the "Smart Age" now evolving, ego has no place.

Instead, the focus will need to be on the quality of ideas, accuracy, emotional intelligence and mindfulness.

Technology in the so-called Smart Machine Age, which includes AI, virtual reality and robotics, will bring huge changes not just in headcount, but also in how people innovate and collaborate. That will require new approaches to how people think, listen and relate, says Edward D. Hess, a professor of business administration at the University of Virginia.

Hess writes about these issues in the just-released book he co-authored with Katherine Ludwig, titled Humility is the New Smart: Rethinking Human Excellence in the Smart Machine Age. Hess discussed his ideas on the Knowledge@Wharton show on Wharton Business Radio, SiriusXM channel 111.
