CB1-18 è un programma composto da una serie di software chiamati Chatbot, un’entità artificiale conversazionale in grado di interagire con i candidati. Al contrario di altri Chatbots che possono solamente rispondere alle domande dei consumatori, come nel caso di servizi bancari e assicurativi, il nostro software è stato sviluppato in modo che possa fare domande piuttosto che dare risposte… Read more

EU-funded project CB1-18 is changing the way recruitment and selection is carried out by making the process almost entirely automated.
With today’s highly competitive job market, new vacancies are known to attract high volumes of applications. Unfortunately, not all of them can be analysed due to time restraints and costs. Because of this, those involved in the recruitment process are often left with no choice but to exclude a significant number of applications by unintentionally resorting to discriminatory criteria.

What we have done

The European Commission accepted our project and we were able to overcome the first phase of Horizon2020: of all the Suisse companies interested, which submitted their proposals, only 55 were able to participate, two of which in Ticino and one of which is exactly Arca24.

What we are doing

Now we are ready to deal with second phase as well. The first event is on the 10th of October, for which we are working with partnerships and collaborations for the development of our project.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation Programme under grant agreement No 816305 – CB1-18.
