Are the AI in the world of recruiting all the same?
The answer is no. The semantic reading engines that underlie the AI applied to the Talent Acquisition sector perform different actions and have different values. It is our job to test them and evaluate their effectiveness.
The largest semantic and artificial intelligence engines are governed by the world’s largest “tech” operators: Google, Amazon AWS, IBM, Microsoft. Most of their services are free, or in any case easily accessible to our HR software. The problem is that these giants are by definition not verticalized linguistic engines. This means that the article in a newspaper and / or a novel is read correctly but vertical documents such as financial reports or medical records – which do not use “classic” writing – are not read effectively.
The same applies to a CV (also a vertical document); for a complete reading it is not enough to have a semantic linguistic engine that binds the concepts but you need an Artificial Intelligence developed specifically for the world of work.
The example of “black gold” is often used to show how the machine, independently, is able to trace the expression back to the term “oil”. If these conceptual links work in daily writing and speech, they do not find an effective application in the world of human resources; it is not difficult to believe that no oil & gas operator will write in his CV “black gold”.
Another note of attention is when an AI is built specifically for the world of HR, but are used institutional mappings. The European cataloging, and those that every single state does, have little functional impact for the real writing of CVs and job offers (it is too different and not comparable). It is functional for statistical reports but less so for real use during a Recruitment process.
On the market there are HR TECH operators offering ATS equipped with Artificial Intelligence, which, however, are often not vertical on the real needs of customers. Although these are new technologies and semantic engines, few systems are built precisely for the HR sector (and therefore aimed at recruiting and, more generally, Talent Acquisition).
Arca24 includes in all its software – both for corporations and for recruitment companies and employment agencies – a semantic engine with AI application specifically designed for the HR world. An engine available in 7 languages and cross-language, i.e. able to identify the correct matching between skills and research, even if the job offer is written in a language other than that of the CV. Our Artificial Intelligence not only carries out an automatic pre-screening but also allows you to always have a transversal and functional talent pool available.
