Artificial intelligence (AI) is better at hiring staff than human bosses, but companies still don't trust it in the recruitment process, a new study finds. Researchers in London have conducted a review of previous studies that assessed the effectiveness of AI as a recruitment tool. They found AI is'equal to or better than' human recruiters when it comes to hiring people who go on to perform well at work. Although AI had limited abilities in predicting employee outcomes after they were hired, AI is'fairer' and marked a substantial improvement over humans, they reveal. AI also boosts the'fill-rate' for open positions and is'mostly better than humans' at improving diversity in the workplace.
