Part of our deep dive into exploring how predictive technologies are defining and guiding innovation in Human Resources Management, this research overview and strategy call will review compelling, new research on hiring algorithms, Help Wanted: An Examination of Hiring Algorithms, Equity, and Bias, published by Upturn (an organization that specializes in research and advocacy that advances equity and justice in the design, governance, and use of technology). Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning are giving companies powerful new predictive tools to manage Human Resources in extremely effective ways, particularly for recruitment, performance and workforce development, skills assessment, training and upskilling, conflict resolution, and budgeting. But, as organizations increasingly rely on predictive technologies and complex data, it's becoming clear that these same automation tools that benefit the organization can present unique, unprecedented challenges with potentially devastating uninentional consequences. We'll explore this through the lense of the research report and Dr. Pratt's expert insights, guided by moderator, James Jeude.
