The Transparency Problem with AI

The use of Artificial intelligence (AI) in important decision-making areas continues to grow and includes such important decisions as: loan-worthiness, emergency response, medical diagnosis, job candidate selection, parole determination, criminal punishment, and educator performance. But, a critical question keeps coming up in these areas, how are the decisions being made?
Jeff Brennan

The Transparency Problem with AI - Part 2

Transparency in data privacy involves openness; being willing to share with users all aspects of usages of their personal data. This includes an openness on what is being collected, why it is being collected, how it is being analyzed, and how the decisions being made by AI algorithms were decided (what output parameters drove the decisions made by the AI algorithms).
Jeff Brennan

What it’s like to be intern at college interns are gaining a unique perspective about the difference between classroom learning and real-world experience. They are being challenged to use open-source and low-cost software components to create prototype applications to compliment or compete with alternative approaches to natural language processing (NLP) solutions.

Unsupervised vs Supervised AI: Not all AI is created equal

But how can you figure out which functions within your business can actually be transformed by AI? What are the quality limitations? How can you evaluate which business service companies are using AI effectively while others could be selling hyped up linear algebra? The best way to know if an AI product is right for your business is by asking the right questions.

4 Reasons Why Candidate Screening is Not a Human Task

Humans will always play a critical role in the hiring process, but the consistency vs efficiency challenge exemplifies why reviewing resumes is a task better suited for modern machines than modern humans.

Big Data and Hiring

Job seekers and employers have access to almost any information they want these days. This raises a few important questions. Is more data truly useful? Does more information directly correlate to better jobs, better employees, and better matches? How will we measure the impact that big data has on hiring in the future?

How Talent Classification Works

Talent classification is a simple concept to grasp but can be a difficult practice to adopt without the right tools. We refer to talent classification as the process of categorizing human capital according to shared qualities or characteristics. This process helps you recognize, differentiate, and understand the talent you have at your disposal. Decision-making in talent acquisition and strategic workforce planning becomes much more straightforward with this level of insight.

M&A Series: How to decide who to retain after a merger or acquisition

With the completion of every merger or acquisition, the electronic ink is barely dry for the Chief of Human Resources and their staff before they are called upon to integrate 500, or 2,500 or maybe 25,000 new employees into the new entity. This is a daunting task that's part art (aka experience + luck) and part science (aka …if only there was some).

M&A Series: Talent Classification improves chances of a successful merger or acquisition

Should you tag resumes manually?

As part of the candidate screening process, some organizations task their recruiters with manual tagging of the resumes they review. The idea here is to increase the usability of talent databases by generating metadata manually.

Talent classification cited as a new way for organizations to improve internal talent mobility

In the December 7th issue of First Analysis Quarterly Insights, managing director Corey Greendale concludes that there’s a significant information gap that makes it difficult for organizations to optimize internal talent mobility.

Reviewing Resumes is Broken

Reviewing resumes can be the hardest and most demanding part of the entire hiring process. It’s extremely time consuming and is the first of many steps in a lengthy process. Unfortunately, it’s entirely necessary because job boards aren’t dead yet and resumes remain the primary way that candidates present themselves to companies.

The use cases for AI you didn't know existed

You've probably read about how AI is being used in data security, financial trading, healthcare, fraud detection, or elsewhere. AI has taken hold in these industries, in part, because there is “big data” associated with each and ready-made AI solutions. But, what about the industries or use cases that don’t involve mountains of numerical data?
