21 Apr: Will Artificial Intelligence replace my job? (Spoiler: no, it will make it better)

With contributions from Peter McGraw and Mike Mullen

Here at the Hive, we know a lot of people wonder, “Will robots take my job?”  And although we work with artificial intelligence (AI) instead of robots, we get it. We totally understand why some people might feel suspicious of machines telling them how to do their jobs. It’s completely natural to be skeptical of a technology claiming to know more than you. But rest assured, there are some things that machines simply cannot—and will not—replace. The best use of AI in the workplace is within tools that augment expertise and skill…

19 Apr: Cracking the Myth of Long Investment Banker Hours

The jaw-droppingly long hours investment bankers work are legendary. A widely-reported recent survey of first year analysts at Goldman Sachs revealed that they work on average more than 95 hours per week, and sleep around 5 hours each night. Across the industry, average investment banker hours are between 70-85 hours per week. No matter how you slice it, that’s a lot of time to spend working.

But is it really necessary? In today’s technology-driven world, aren’t there solutions to automate a lot of the work and make a day in the life of an investment banker more balanced and less…

13 Apr: What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

Written with contributions from Mike Mullen and Peter McGaw.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a popular buzzword, but you might be surprised to learn what it actually means. When many people think of AI, what first comes to mind are images of human-like computers responding to their everyday needs, like some kind of robotic butler. For others, AI conjures up it’s dramatic ideas of a monolithic entity replacing humans entirely and taking control of the world (hello, The Matrix). And, unfortunately, a growing number of people don’t associate AI with much of anything. To them, it’s just a trendy, overused term…

It’s no big secret: Covid-19 has completely transformed the way we do business, so much so that it’s become difficult to understand the various technologies available and how and why people engage with them.

15 Oct: Reduce the Overwhelm with AI to Increase Productivity

For many organisations, increasing productivity is one of the main reasons why they make the leap to invest in technology. Productivity can suffer as a result of many factors in a team or individual’s day-to-day. From the never-ending to-do list to constant interruptions over the course of a workday, it’s easy to understand why teams feel overwhelmed and how productivity suffers. Just picture this:

12 Feb: Cleanse, AI-Powered Contact Quality Management for B2B

Keeping contact information up-to-date within a customer relationship management (CRM) system is difficult — especially for customer-facing staff. Not only are these employees strapped for time — they are often unaware of departures and physical moves their contacts have made. This causes discrepancies in CRM data quality, leading to bigger troubles down the line.

Managing data often requires staffing a team dedicated solely to data stewardship, which requires a significant investment in people and time resources. Organizations seem to have two choices: either staff a data stewardship team to constantly work in a reactive cycle to outpace data decay and…
