Revenge of the Thinking Machines

Internet DysartIT security pros are gearing up in earnest for the newest threat to corporate security: viruses, malware and similar cybersecurity attacks turbocharged with artificial intelligence (AI).

In Recruiting, AI Gets Real

AIWhile the wonders of artificial intelligence (AI) are often hyped beyond recognition, AI-powered recruitment software is actually offering real advantages to businesses. Scores of firms are currently using AI-driven recruitment software to automatically crawl the web for the kind of job candidates they want, auto-interview them via text chat or video on the spot, and then auto-schedule the most promising candidates for follow-up interviews by the person who does the hiring. Other programs automatically rifle through résumés submitted at your website for candidates with the exact qualifications you want. And still others design neuroscience games your job candidates can play, which glean the people who best exhibit the traits, skills and characteristics you’re looking for.
