While we can keep browsing through articles scattered all over the web that speak about the impact Artificial Intelligence is creating in HR, there are only few who delve into the practical problems being solved by use of Artificial Intelligence. Time has come when instead of talking about theory of the AI and its high-level impact, we look at its real world applications in context of the HR industry and the ways in which the recruitment can take full benefit of the resulting disruption. As a forward thinking, technologically inclined product vendor, we have listed some of the players which are doing outstanding work in this field. There are others also, but these have impressed us the most.
Here are the five practical applications of AI in hiring that make us understand the importance of artificial intelligence in hr:
Mya Chatbot aka Artificially Intelligent Recruiter
Formerly known as Firstjob, Mya systems have developed a recruiter chatbot, named, Mya. The bot uses artificial intelligence to communicate and interact with jobseekers. Mya was launched in July 2016 and it works on different levels such as sourcing CVs, screening them for the job and scheduling the interview. The application assistant relies on Natural Language Understanding to find meaningful information from the candidate’s response to a query and accordingly responds to it.
Mya also delivers regular updates automatically to the applicant about the status of his job application. The best part about Mya is that it can easily integrate with your existing ATS and career sites. The cloud based bot uses different mediums like Facebook messenger, Skype, SMS and Email to communicate with the applicant from within the ATS. Over the course of its existence, the chatbot has interacted with more than 2 million candidates growing its knowledge base intelligently with every interaction. The automation made possible by Mya enables recruiters to free up a large part of their bandwidth for doing actual HR tasks.

The smart API can be integrated with the existing recruiting software to boost its search and matching capabilities. They have named the API as Marlowe which uses Artificial Intelligence to provide smart recommendations, do smart research and offer insights based on industry trends and skills. The purpose is to make it easier for the recruiters to find the right match, and save crucial time in the process by application of machine learning and big data.

If you are looking for an AI based tool that reduces bias in recruiting, HiringSolved has you covered. Its experimental tool RAI uses hundreds of data points to identify diverse candidates to help you reach the diversity goals. The tool uses a proprietary statistical model that was developed in house that allows users to boost search relevance through the platform’s ethnic and gender diversity models. The other function of RAI is similar to that of Mya, which is interacting with candidates just like any other human assistant.
RAI uses the same Natural Language Processing that Mya uses to understand the conversations and come up with a suitable response. The developers promote its context awareness as one of the big differentiators amongst its competitors. Other than RAI, Hiringsolved has developed an AI powered advanced “talent matching and search” technology called Talentfeed. Talentfeed analyzes billions of data points across the social web to come up with a pool of talent along with data of their skills, experience and more. The same technology can power your ATS, CRM and HRIS to enable AI based recruitment in your organization.
