Companies increasingly are using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve how they recruit, evaluate, and hire staff. These tools can enable companies to find qualified people for hard-to-fill positions, increase diversity in teams, and reduce bias in the hiring process. In addition, as the global pandemic recedes and companies start hiring again, AI can help millions of people get back to work faster by accelerating the hiring process and helping companies identify and advance job applicants who might otherwise have been overlooked. But despite these potential benefits, some policymakers consider the use of AI in recruiting and hiring to be “high-risk” and want to limit it.
ITIF's Center for Data Innovation hosted a discussion about the opportunities to use AI in recruiting and hiring, the ways in which companies are addressing concerns about discrimination and bias, and policies that could support effective use of this technology.
