Even though most recruiters will not be biased ‘on purpose’, bias is unavoidable in human interaction based decision making. AI does not take into account your race, your habits and the like when screening your skills and matching them to job profiles.
How do you recognize a market leading searching and matching technology? Smart searching looks at more than just a CV and a job description.
Accuracy leads to finding better candidates, and ultimately better matches. For searching and matching technology to be top notch, flexibility, transparancy and accuracy are elementary. What is meant by accuracy you ask?
We should look for a genuine entry strategy: this crisis offers an opportunity to speed up the introduction and roll out of the digital transformation. This certainly also holds for the HR-world, even though people active in recruiting sometimes fail to see the urge of such a transformation.
Unlike other technologies, xMP gives insights in the processes that have lead to proposed matches between candidates and jobs. Elementary in this transparency approach is the idea of showing why a certain vacancy and a certain job candidate form a perfect match.
One of a kind: the yearly high mass for the British recruitment agencies Recruitment Agency Expo 2020 took place in London. As one of the only non-British tech companies, Actonomy was celebrating its 10th participation.
One of the most buzzed words in machine learning today is ‘ontology’. Yet, it is a quintessential element in making automatic language understanding a success. Even more so when it is used in searching and matching technology for HR-purposes.
Actonomy believes searching must be flexible, taking into account all kind of elements that can vary depending on the kind of queries the technology is to perform. When looking for a welder, you need to take a different approach than when searching a software engineer.
Employers and candidates seem to have outspoken different views on technology when it comes to recruiting, a recent study by PSI Talent Management proves. Candidates are much more open-minded when embracing technologies such as robotics or the use of artificial intelligence than recruiters believe them to be.
Artificial Intelligence, as one of the corner stones of his theories and views, has come from nowhere to almost everywhere in almost no time. Smart chips are even entering our bodies (like in the case of some diabetes treatments), Artificial Intelligence is making its entrance in more and more applications.
Actonomy was at the yearly Recruitment Tech Event 2019 in Amsterdam. Some 450 attendees enjoyed keynote speeches and got in touch with top notch providers of recruitment tools. Hot topic of the day: artificial intelligence and robots.
In the current economic climate, seasoned with labor shortage and volatile career movements, it is essential to be fast and smart when recruiting talent. An important element to consider when switching to skill searching, is how to measure skills in candidates and their résumés.
Over the last few decades, the world of work has evolved drastically. People change jobs, move to different places, switch between employment and self-employment, and want to combine their work with their private lives. Welcome to the war for talent.
Semantics is more than synonyms and certainly more than a Boolean search on the different parts of a ‘concept’!
Many solutions are called semantic search engines when synonyms are used while searching. It is clear that systems should search for 'software developer' and 'programmer' and many more .... but that is only one aspect of semantic search!
Lesson learned! Jobboards are death, that's what people have been saying now for years, but if you attend the conference, you can only get a totally different impression!
At Actonomy we believe in the value of candidate pools, the value of CV databases. Typically build over time by adding new applicants, new candidates that were added as the result of job marketing campaigns.
Visiting the Recruitment Agency Expo in London? These are the reasons why you should stop at the Actonomy booth D7!
Actonomy’s HR-ontology is the core component behind the xMP Semantic Mind and the xMP Data Services. It does not only allow to retrieve e.g. job titles but also to provide relations between job titles and skills.
This is what semantic technology will bring you! Actonomy combines uniquely machine learning, deep learning, AI with advanced linguistic processing and semantic modeling such as ontology creation.
