Does AI add value to Talent Management and Recruitment?

April 12 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Speaker: Dr. Eric Sydell, Executive Vice President, Modern Hire

This session will investigate the role that Artificial Intelligence (AI) can play in the hiring process, drawing attention to new developments in modelling and language processing. But is this enough to convince the sceptics, and how does Business Psychology fit with these developments?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has seen rapid expansion and integration into many sectors throughout our society. It’s helping medical professionals make more accurate diagnoses, it’s helping Engineers model and build better bridges, and now it’s helping selection scientists and HR professionals select the best available candidates for organisational positions.

This session will provide attendees with fundamental knowledge concerning how AI is being applied to selection and talent management. Specifically, we will discuss applications of fair machine learning (ML), which has benefited from exponentially increasing levels of research over the past several years.

Bias based on inaccurate data using traditional methods is a key driver in AI application, something which has attracted much public attention. Based on research and best practices, we will discuss when, how, and why biased data impacts AI/ML modelling. With this knowledge, we cover some potential pitfalls and/or miss-applications of AI models that inadvertently lead to negative outcomes or potential liability.

Eric Sydell is the EVP of Innovation at Modern Hire, and co-author of the forthcoming book Decoding Talent: How AI and Big Data Can Solve Your Company’s People Puzzle, from Fast Company Press. In Eric’s role at Modern Hire, he guides the data science-focused Labs team in developing novel ways to understand data – not just assessment data, but unstructured information of all types. He has also worked with numerous global clients over the years and speaks and writes widely. Eric received his Ph.D. in Industrial/Organisational Psychology from the University of Akron.

We look forward to welcoming you!
