Interest in and the adoption of artificial intelligence in the talent acquisition space has skyrocketed since 2015. During this episode of Science-4 Hire, Dr. Charles Handler seeks to learn more about how AI-based hiring platforms work, with a specific focus on AI-based job matching. Eightfold.AI is doing just that, and much more in pursuit of the company’s core mission to find the right career for everyone in the world.
Mihir Gandhi, VP of Strategic Marketing for Eightfold.AI, discusses how AI is being used to match often not-so-obvious skills of applicants to open positions with companies worldwide.
Mihir provides insight into how Eightfold’s technology identifies corollary skills that may not have fit on the traditional, single-page resume. In tandem with skills definition, Eightfold’s AI is creating calibration profiles for hiring managers to use, making it more effective for them to identify information beyond the core skills outlined within job descriptions.
Handler and Gandhi dive into the importance of candidates’ fluidity and need to reskill, or as Dr. Handler refers to it “self-skill“, in an effort to expand their opportunities.
