How artificial intelligence can eliminate bias in hiring

#artificialintelligence

Diversity (or lack of it) is still a major challenge for tech companies. Poised to revolutionize the world of work in general, some organizations are leveraging technology to root out bias, better identify and screen candidates and help close the diversity gap. That starts with understanding the nature of bias, and acknowledging that unconscious bias is a major problem, says Kevin Mulcahy, an analyst with Future Workplace and co-author of The Future Workplace Experience: 10 Rules for Managing Disruption in Recruiting and Engaging Employees. AI and machine learning can be an objective observer to screen for bias patterns, Mulcahy says. "The challenge with unconscious bias is that, by definition, it is unconscious, so it takes a third-party, such as AI, to recognize those occurrences and point out any perceived patterns of bias.

70% of Recruiters Don't Care or Are Clueless: Long Live AI Recruiting

#artificialintelligence

I try to not to get all worked up over recruiters being replaced by robots, or recruiting-is-dead click-bait articles, but some of them are just annoying as heck. I want to try and bring some additional facts and sanity to this discussion, as most of the discussions I have seen are based on emotional and anecdotal responses. I also wanted to bring other industry voices into this discussion like China Gorman, Gerry Crispin, Kevin Wheeler, and Glen Cathey as we believe this particular topic has an enormous impact on the future of our profession. You build a great case for recruiters to take seriously the advancements that AI, algorithms, bots, and VR are making in the talent acquisition space and tie it up in a way that makes one look away at their own peril!" -- China Gorman I am not a futurist. I don't have a crystal ball, but what I do have is 20 years of global recruiting experience leading functions all around the world, and I have been an agency and corporate recruiter. I have also spoken to thousands of recruiters, HR, business, and talent acquisition leaders in my career. Most recently in my current role, I have looked at thousands of survey results on a broad array of recruiting topics over many years. Did I speak with or survey every recruiter on the face of the earth? That should not lessen what I have to say next; I hope not.

How artificial intelligence is reshaping recruitment, and what it means for the future of jobs

Anuj Agrawal, 35, has dabbled in the recruitment industry since 2005. With 100 employees and two offices in Noida and Bengaluru, his firm Zyoin offers recruitment and consultancy services to over 300 companies, including Amazon, Goibibo, Play Games and PayU. But there were some constant niggles. With no universal template around which resumes are written and structured, mining and matching thousands with job positions was a huge task. Available parsing technologies were basic and didn't sort and match well. Also, the resumes in their database would often get dated. Last year, Agrawal got a cold email from Anand Kumar, founder of Bengaluru-based Skillate, an artificial intelligence (AI)-based recruitment solution platform that helps companies read and match resumes.
