SAN MATEO, Calif., March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
"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.
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 selected for this competition. "The machines are here. Their matches are good. Brilent actually provides reasons for why candidates are a good fit," said Roberts, in reference to Brilent's performance vs. human sourcers. "The contest is always tricky and requires both logic and creativity to conquer ... The humans spent from 4 - 25 hours to research and submit their entries whereas Brilent took 3.2 seconds to deliver its results ... Brilent competed well against some of the best sourcers in the world, and it only took a few seconds to do so," said Stroud.
The talent acquisition industry faces ongoing challenges with finding and hiring the best talent quickly. Larger recruiting departments, however, have tens of thousands to millions of applicants within their Applicant Tracking Systems (or ATS) and CRMs and limited methods for prioritizing the best candidates for specific jobs. Brilent's AI system targets these challenges by automatically updating candidate information, ranking all candidates for all open roles, and providing summaries on why candidates are or aren't a fit. Now recruiters can pinpoint their top candidates in seconds instead of hours.
