The application of Artificial Intelligence in hiring can be quite useful in the right contexts. Artificial Intelligence refers to a burgeoning effort to create machines that could mimic human problem-solving.

Artificial Intelligence today

Today, the term “AI” refers to a broad range of techniques that process data of various types. allows researchers to study enormous sets of complex data and pull out predictive aspects of that data for use in various applications. 

AI in hiring

Data scientists today study candidate data to find ways to enhance what we call the “Four E’s of Hiring: Efficiency, Effectiveness, Engagement, and Ethics.” Essentially, every hiring process should save time, predict job/organization performance and retention, be engaging for candidates and recruiters, and be fair for all parties. 

With traditional, pre-AI statistics, we could easily score numerical data such as assessment responses, but we could not do the same for unstructured data such as resumes, background checks, typed responses, and interviews. Today, however, advanced AI techniques allow researchers to parse and score these types of data sources, and it’s game-changing.

Predictive hiring

We can now use AI to quantify qualitative data sources like interview responses. And once you can quantify something, you can see if it predicts outcomes that matter, like a job and organizational performance. You can also check to see if those predictions are biased against protected or other groups. 

Automating the interview process

A capability called Automated Interview Scoring can score interview responses automatically and evaluate those numerical results statistically. 

It uses only the transcribed words that a potential employee speaks because that content is what the candidate gives us to use in the hiring process.

Automating the interview process can replicate the interview ratings of trained, subject matter expert interviewers. This is exciting because it happens instantaneously. 

The last word

Artificial Intelligence is a powerful tool and, when applied in a thoughtful, careful, rigorous, scientific way, can lead to great improvements in hiring technology.
