Artificial intelligence (A.I.) is nothing new. For decades, we’ve been obsessed with finding out just how far this technology will go. There’s also been a lot of debate over what A.I. really means. In the context of recruiting, let’s consider this definition: A.I. is “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines.” But is it really that simple? Most think not. In theory, intelligent machines are designed to make life easier, which explains the natural connection to recruiting. But thanks to the rapid proliferation of AI, there’s the constant worry that machines will take over and make human recruiters obsolete. Not so, my friends. A.I. within recruiting has picked up steam these last few years, in the form of new software and applications that aim to revolutionize the talent acquisition process. There’s no doubt that A.I. is going to be huge for recruiting. Let’s look at how companies are already using A.I.-based solutions to simplify recruiting tasks and hire top talent faster.
