    How does an enterprise strike a balance between managing human and tech intelligence? Dr CJ Meadows believes that technology is our new colleague, and we need to treat it as such.

    Our most recent guest on Slaves to the Algo says, “We don't have to have jobs that don't fit the person. So, do you change the job, or do you change the person?

It changes in real time, every second, as people get started on new things.”

    Metaverse, NFTs, and the future of sport with Sundar Raman

    Why is Chennai Super Kings one of the best loved teams in the IPL?

    Apart from player performance, it's the way the franchise engages with its fans, believes Sundar Raman.

    They speak their language, with tweets in Tamil like, "Aarambiklangla" ("Shall we begin?"). They feed the #Yellove adoration with behind-the-scenes training footage. And it's safe to say that MS Dhoni's on-field achievements continue to draw the crowds.

    For more on how teams engage with fans, tune in to the latest episode of Slaves to the Algo! Sundar and Suresh Shankar talk about audience engagement strategies, monetizing intelligently, and bringing cricket to the metaverse.
