NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- untapt, the leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology solving the hardest problems in talent, hosted its first ever AI Think Tank event at Rise New York. Ed Donner, CEO, alongside Deep Learning Expert and Chief Data Scientist Dr. Jon Krohn, held a lively, thought-provoking event. The Think Tank event united leading business executives in AI technology with HR recruiters in a unique opportunity to share their thoughts and network with top industry representatives.
Highlights of the "Talent Intelligence: A Think Tank on AI in HR Hosted by untapt" evening included a Computer vs. Recruiter challenge, in which the senior recruiters faced off with untapt's AI algorithm. Given a selection of resumes, the HR leaders sought to prioritize candidates from most to least fit for a provided job description.
The different groups' answers varied, but when averaged out, their overall rank of candidates matched the exact ranking chosen by untapt's Deep Learning algorithm. In addition, the exercise led to an interesting discussion on how AI software can reduce bias, offer more quantifiable results and better candidates overall.
"Coming into the event, I had no idea what to expect. But I was really blown away by the energy and expertise of everyone in the room," said Ed Donner. "I knew this event would be an opportunity for in-depth discussion, but I was quite surprised at how far we came as a group. It's given me real insights that I can't wait to put into practice."
"Through the Think Tank's discussions and interactive exercises, we observed further evidence that both recruiters and candidates gain from the use of AI tools. The event demonstrated an inherent need for what we've built at untapt," added Dr. Jon Krohn. "As human-resources professionals increasingly appreciate that AI saves them time and capital while simultaneously improving the quality of the prospects they identify for open roles, we are witnessing a shift toward the technology's adoption.
