AI can answer "What will you do?", not just "What did you do already?"

Ashu Garg, CEO and founder of Volkscience, also founder and ex-CTO of Bloomreach, summarises his talk from Perspectives London hosted by vyn on 14th March 2018. In it he showed his passion for building recruitment tools that look beyond our human biases.

The Power of Perspectives

Businesses are increasingly realising the power different perspectives have on innovation and productivity in the workplace. More perspectives lead to smarter questions, better answers and more innovative teamwork. Read on for inspiration on how to leverage different insights and viewpoints.

Reflections of a one-year-old

It’s almost a year since we launched vyn.

A year when we made considerable progress on many fronts. But, 3 big things stand out for me. And, as I reflect on my learning this past year, I can’t help but draw some analogies with the world of art, my other passion.

Simple is not easy

How many times have you looked at an abstract painting and heard someone say, "I could do that!"? While abstract painting looks easy and simple to some, it can actually be more challenging than traditional or classical painting.

Human AI - The future is bright

The future of AI is here.

We share this newsletter as an email to our supporters about once a month. Sign up to our mailing list.

AI is changing the way we interact with technology. Here at vyn, we believe the AI we incorporate into our solutions should take us back to a more human and natural way of living: Less clicking, tapping, typing and swiping... More talking, seeing, smiling and listening.

Elevating the positives gives more value than eliminating the negatives…

Eliminating the negatives is what we are all good at… our focus is to create a complaint-free service… our energy is spent in filling the gaps, removing the nuances… but then we are rarely left with time to even aspire for the extraordinary?

The feel-good guide to diversity in tech

Why startups should embrace diversity for a happier, more successful business.

After an autumn of #metoo and strings of sexual harassment stories from across industries, the discussion around diversity and inclusion is back in our news feeds once again. On the one hand, I’m fully behind the discussions that are going on, and I agree we need to talk about the depressing recent stats around diversity in tech, and stand behind the people who’ve bravely brought to light their own stories. On the other - and I know I’m not alone in this - I’m finishing up my last week of work for 2017 and preparing for the holidays. So my two cents on #TechTalksDiversity are here to make you smile.

Thoughtful vs. Big Data - Insights from the experts

For this year's Perspectives evening, we invited three of the world's most innovative data experts (more on each of them here) to share their views on the debate between big data and what we like to call thoughtful data - human data turned into actionable insights. This was the 4th of our biannual Perspectives events, but the first in the US - specifically Mountain View in the heart of Silicon Valley. I know you're probably busy, so in case you don't have 50 minutes to watch the entire evening's debate unfold, feel free to pick the one(s) you're interested in:

Top 3 sales hacks

At this year’s Sales Hacker conference in London, over 40 sales professionals provided their top tips as a vyn™ - a smart video note*.  

We got a beautiful collection of video insights, along with a simple word cloud showing key points. It was great to see such a variety of tips.

I have been passionate about putting the customer at the heart of the conversation in my entire career spanning different industries and countries. And, many of the Sales Hacker “vynners” agree with this sentiment.

There were lots of great tips on how to put the customer in the spotlight, with a focus on listening, asking the right questions, and being relevant.
