Artificial Intelligence is the hottest thing since the internet. And it's the fastest growing, and fastest changing technology in human history. The businesses that survive will be those that can quickly adapt and incorporate these changes with minimal business disruption. Learning and Development will play a critical role in the future of this augmented enterprise.

Mike Hruska joined us to geek out on the future of our work in L&D. He's been on the forefront of every new technology shift L&D has experienced since before SCORM. As a technologist, he's the perfect person to discuss L&Ds future with us. And with AI changing the business landscape on a daily basis, and so many professionals concerned about their careers, Mike has visualized the future and shares some principles of an adaptive learning organization.

If you're worried about your career as an instructional designer, you should watch the replay. And if you're leading a training team or L&D organization this episode should be mandatory. We want to help you navigate the massive changes impacting you and your team.
