    "Artificial Intelligence in HR: Here to help, Not Hurt"


    Artificial Intelligence is often misunderstood. When you first think of artificial intelligence, you may think of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator.

    But, don’t worry, Skynet is not here to destroy the planet nor is AI here to replace you as a human resources professional. Artificial Intelligence is not a robot, but rather the ability of a computer program to bring structure to vast amounts of unstructured data.

    • Doctors put symptoms into an AI-based computer program to determine all the possible diagnoses.
    • Netflix uses AI to help suggest movies that you’ll enjoy based on what you’ve already watched.
    • Uber and Lyft use AI to predict when more drivers are needed before rush hour hits and riders are left stranded.

    These companies take large amounts of data (that no human could ever instantaneously manage) and creates actionable insight for those who use it. The result is more efficiency and better decisions… in all industries.

    Here are 3 ways AI is changing HR specifically… and what you should do about it

    • Candidate sourcing
    • Candidate screening
    • Employee people analytics
