John dryden the small country village. They founded was quirky. Six mile creek was actually twenty miles long but the people who lived there were proud of their heritage. After the revolutionary war. The town became part of the military tract program. It was a government scheme that gifted each new york soldier hundreds of acres of land a type of payment for participating in the war the war of eighteen twelve drafted even more soldiers so more veterans came and some of its most notable early villagers were the scots. They were respected family. That was really well known for their contributions to the village but they were also known for the string of horrific murders in their family. Red light you can imagine this now lost snow on bravo. I'm a journalism professor at the university of texas and austin and now i've never really driven in the snow. It took me about an hour just to drive thirteen miles. From ithaca craig scott and i drive the back roads of dryden winding pass churches and fields to brookefield farm. This has been in his family for almost two hundred years. Another scutt kathy. Chadwick lives here with her son and her dog. Hannah ohana i wander around for awhile outside. Craig is a retired local businessman and politician who has lived off of scutt road for decades. The local cemeteries are filled with his ancestors. The scutt name rings royalty in dryden at least to me. He and cathy have hundreds of relatives in the county but they've never actually met most of them. What is it like to come from such a large family. I have two cousins vast family. We always run into people that we didn't know we were were part of a tree somewhere. I at least. I find that i went to the picnic a couple of years ago. And oh my word. Where did all this cuts come from. So it was a little surprising to me that the family was so extensive. The scots arrived in america. In the early sixteen hundreds from amsterdam they owned lumber mills clothing mills and thousands of acres of farmland. They felt blessed to be a part of such a close community. Gerald smith is a historian and nearby broome county and an expert on small town life in the eighteen hundreds. Everybody knows everybody else. Everybody would go over and help the neighboring farmer or two or three farms down. If there was a problem the barn burned down. There's a barn. Raising the family's patriarch in eighteen. Forty two was john scott. He was a fifty five year old decorated veteran in the war of eighteen twelve. John own this house which looks really small from the outside. But it's two stories with four bedrooms and a large basement a pretty impressive eighteen forties house that has stayed in the scott family for generations. A well with original slate stone sits just feet from the house. A murder of crows lives in a massive willow tree nearby. I can remember as a child coming out here to visit. It's not a bad thing to hang on a little bit to the past john. Scott was cathy chadwick's great great. Great grandfather he became a well known schoolteacher in dryden a leader in the village he was highly intellectual and very hard working and a little strict told me about the family. Valley's well perseverance stubborn. It's right up there on top of the list. My grandfather used to say man's only as good as his word could give somebody your word. Make sure you keep it.

The best thing we can do is not train people for specific hard skills or knowledge areas or expertise but identify if I whether they are likely to be good learners in the future and whether they're adoptable companies could of course use traditional personality. Test ask you might have heard of meyers brakes or disc or the big five you know choosing descriptions like people look up to me. I tend to be a kind person I accept live as it comes. Do you agree or disagree. These tests have been used for decades and most generally accepted as reliable measures of personalities now tech startups have developed algorithms that use artificial intelligence to create a personality analysis instantly without asking any questions like the company crystal analyzes. The words phrases and data points on someone's Lincoln profile and correlates with personality test results from people who have similar similar words phrases and data points. They used a bunch of the tests that we talked about another company. Humanistic used the disappointment and the big five. Both companies are using natural language processing tools. But do they work. We started by running mannix algorithm over Thomas Twitter feed this is you and this is based on your twitter so your analytical cautious deliberate and then we looked at Lincoln using the same companies tool so now you are influential energizing an impulsive in here. You were an analytical cautious and deliberate shortly so I would say more impulsive Paul Save than cautious and deliberate and the two are of the opposite extreme you know so same algorithm very different results for the thing. There is an element. amando throw everything against the wall and see what sticks here okay. So what does the other company crystal say about him. Based on his linked in this is one is better direct assertive and competitive. I think is better than court shows. Delivered speak very directly or bluntly yes stay. Stay focused on one point. Not necessarily I mean I'd like to jump from one to assert yourself with confidence definitely not as spent the last ten years in writing books on how we shouldn't mistake confidence for competent. So please don't assert yourself with confidence. There are trade-offs here right and I the thing that this doesn't seem as accurate as a traditional science based or validated assessment despite these inconsistencies Tomas still things. There's something here but other experts in the hiring field a less forgiving. There's no uh-huh science behind this. There's no real research that supports deriving personality from social media behavior. This is John Scott. He's he's an organizational psychologist bills assessment tools so companies can find the best possible hires. It's something that we can discuss it cocktail parties but I would would never in a million years attempt to derive someone's personality from that and then use that to make predictions beached out to crystalline. Human Tick Kris told told us that there are no independent studies but they're validate their tests internally. They say they ask every user how accurate the predictions are so when Iran Thomas Profile through crystal. The system asked me if it was accurate. She mandich said that the adjectives describing people's personalities in their reports are subjective objective that they could change on the fly and they said you can't judge the accuracy of the system by looking at one profile. They're also disputed. You did that. There are no vigorous. large-scale visas studies on the subject and pointed to a research article comparing computer judgments of personality to human judgments creating personality profiles with the help of. Ai Remains controversial. But John says that technology can help in a different way. He says one of the best ways to predict how well someone will do in a given job is to test them doing their job in a virtual reality simulator. How do you predict future behaviour? You create the future. You place the individual in that future and present them with a variety of challenges and see how they do against those challenges us so imagine instead of having an interview where you talk about how well you can do the job. The employer hands. You had said twenty of right into the deep end. You could take CNN applicant for a CEO save for a an energy company so one possible scenario is that they're holding strategy meeting and everybody in the room gets texts that there it has been a cyber attack on their nuclear plant. What are you going to do? How are you going to face that? And that's not just your stakeholders in your customers. It's the government that gets gets involved in that national security so you could set up a press conference have the individual present their ideas on how they're going to manage this John says this virtual virtual job simulation could be automatically scored by an algorithm just like video game. Technology could work for any job though you could see how you can scale back to new entry level jobs as well providing different sorts of challenges associated with their roles in immersive simulation kind of a way and and John says the tech wouldn't have to stop their companies could combine. The are based headsets with wearable technology. which could record a job? Candidates biometric metric data nervous and you hardest basing they had set would be able to detect that those sweaty palms registered eye contact measurable and all of that data about things citing stress. You feel will be used to assess how well you suited for the job. Since most of us have very control over our bodies we actions. This idea seems pretty controversial. A simple rule in my view is if the criteria or riveria bowls or fuck doors. You are trying to use for your decision whether to hire someone or not are completely out of somebody's control. It's probably not ethical. You get into areas where it may start to feel more like a medical test and you cannot use a medical test at the front door. For Selection election purposes an Illinois law takes effect this month requiring companies to notify job. Candidates may use AI based video interview tools And legislation mandating companies to inspect their algorithms for bias is under consideration in Congress so eventually lawsuits relations could put put the brakes on this new world of artificial intelligence and hiring

I thought does this person know how much of a Tom petty and the Heartbreakers fan, I am and actually turns if she didn't and John's name could have been sent to any of the amazing music fans on on our network to have interviewed him, and I just feel so honored. And like he was really meant to be that he came to us and what an increase. Time we had interviewing him we got to ask him questions about what it was like being a promo man what it was really like the hind the scenes running around doing everything. And then of course, we got to ask him about those really special and intimate times getting to know, the one and only Tom petty. It's been really difficult since Tom has passed for me. And I know for a lot of people and. This was a really special way to sort of bring some things together. I know for me I've had a hard time. Speaking about Tom since his passing, and I had released an episode of just my thoughts, and my feelings, and since then I haven't said a whole lot. So it was really special to be able to share some things that I've learned and that I feel with John in him. I know that we have definitely found a kindred. So in this episode, John is going to tell us about some incredible experiences and times he spent with Tom petty and the Heartbreakers being on the road being a friend being a part of his family.
