This issue presents articles and videos on A.I., algorithms and recruiting. In the final section are links to two podcasts: one a chat with Dart Lindsley at Google on Designing Fulfilling Work and the other is a podcast I did recently on Talent Recruitment.
Algorithms, Bias, Recruiting
More and more of the tools recruiters use have some level of A.I. and machine learning in their inner works and almost all rely to some degree on algorithms - those formula-like rules that recommend, match, and assess candidates. Many of the algorithms reflect the biases of their coders. But what makes them particularly problematic is that the data they use and how they use it is not transparent. This is caused by two factors; one is the need to keep the algorithm private to prevent competitors using it and, two, because they are often so complex that even the coder does not fully understand how they make recommendations. These articles explore some of the issues around algorithms and attempts to make them more open..
