AI News, HireVue's AI face artificial intelligence

The HR Capitalist: Video Interviewing: It's OK to Love It, Just Know S**t Will Probably Get Real...

To be clear, I'm not talking about Skype or similar solutions when it comes to video interviewing - I'm talking about robust situations designed for the top of the funnel - when the candidate applies, they are getting a chance to answer 5-7 questions, the audio of which is designed to really replace the phone screen, and the video of which is to make sure they have the command and presence necessary to do well with your hiring manager if you bring them in live.

"The Electronic Privacy Information Center, known as EPIC, on Wednesday filed an official complaint calling on the FTC to investigate HireVue’s business practices, saying the company’s use of unproven artificial intelligence systems that scan people’s faces and voices constituted a wide-scale threat to American workers.

The system then creates a computer-generated estimate of the candidates’ skills and behaviors, including their “willingness to learn” and “personal stability.” Video interviewing solutions have long listed bias concerns and generally non-progressive, non-rationale hiring managers who make flippant decisions as threats to their future.

Delta and Dozens of Other Companies Are Using A.I. and Face Scanning to Decide Whom to Hire. Critics Call It ‘Digital Snake Oil’

You’ve probably heard of robot assembly line workers, robot burger flippers, and maybe even robot lawyers, but feeling out the enthusiasm and personality of job candidates is surely too sophisticated and human a task for artificial intelligence, right?

Nope, says a company called HireVue that’s successfully selling a tool that uses face scanning technology and A.I.

computer or cellphone cameras to analyze their facial movements, word choice and speaking voice before ranking them against other applicants based on an automatically generated ’employability’

“It’s a profoundly disturbing development that we have proprietary technology that claims to differentiate between a productive worker and a worker who isn’t fit, based on their facial movements, their tone of voice, their mannerisms,”

He accuses his industry of being “ever willing to swallow the venture-funded concoctions of database jockeys masquerading as recruiting experts…

Employment barrister Schona Jolly told the Financial Times that “the problem is there’s absolutely overwhelming evidence available that the machines are very often getting it wrong and they’re getting it wrong on discriminatory grounds.”

HireVue also noted to Inc.com that one customer saw the diversity of hires shoot up 55 percent after they started using their product.

Still, the fact that humans definitely stink at hiring is hardly a slam dunk case for switching to a robot that might only maybe stink at hiring.

AI-Powered Hiring Practices Face Regulator Scrutiny

Last week, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), a consumer watchdog, reached out to the Federal Trade Commission asking regulators to take a look at the recruiting company HireVue, which uses artificial intelligence techniques decided upon by video interviews or online games to help figure out whether an applicant is a fit for a specific company.

For its part, according to the Post, the company claims that its technology doesn’t use facial recognition to identify candidates, but EPIC has challenged that assessment as misleading, noting that the firm uses facial geometry data to compare job candidates to other successful candidates.

(EPIC currently is fighting a settlement between the U.S. government and Facebook regarding the social network’s face-recognition technology.) Beyond EPIC’s complaint, HireVue’s technology has also drawn scrutiny at the state level, with Illinois about to enact a law that requires employers who use facial-recognition technology to inform job applicants and regulators how their systems work.

Will AI replace the human recruiter?

So far, people analytics has only supported recruiters in assessing and pre-selecting applicants.

According to a recent Washington Post article, a new artificial intelligence hiring system, called HireVue, is gaining ground with many employers in the US in particular.

The AI system analyses their facial movements, eye contact, word choice and speaking voice before ranking them against other candidates.

While some say that people analytics tools are not sufficiently rooted in scientific fact and open the door to discrimination, others argue that computers are still more objective than human recruiters who suffer from conscious and biased prejudice.

According to Article 22 (1) of the GDPR, candidates have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing if this decision produces legal effects for him or her or that similarly significantly affects him or her.
