AI a match for human recruiters
Many people have been asking “will a robot take my job?” A recent competition may leave you asking “will a robot find me my next job?”
Brilent’s artificial intelligence (AI) based talent recruitment software recently placed in the Top 3 against a field of 8 of the best human sourcers and recruiters around the globe in the 2017 Sourcecon Sourcing Grandmaster Competition.
The competition was co-hosted by Jason Roberts (Randstad Sourceright’s SVP and Global Head of Technology and Analytics), and Jim Stroud (Randstad Sourceright’s Global Head of Sourcing and Recruiting Strategy) in collaboration with Sourcecon.
The result is a stunning development for the recruiting industry, showing that there is a growing space for AI in the HR industry.
“We are excited about the results of this competition. It further proves that AI can be applied to help employers and recruiters to drastically increase their speed of hiring quality new talent. Finding great talent is more challenging than finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. First, you have many companies competing for the same talent. Second, you have to prioritize between candidates and justify your choice to hiring managers. Brilent does all of this for you and more. We make finding the right candidates easier and quicker so you can focus on what’s most important: building strong relationships with your potential hires,” said Garry Ma, CEO of Brilent Inc.
The winners were announced Wednesday, March 15 at the Sourcecon event in Anaheim, California. Roberts’ objective was to benchmark how AI in recruiting performs against top-of-the-line human sourcers in identifying candidates for hiring. Sourcers and recruiters competed around the globe to be the top 8 human participants who would compete in this competition.
