Are hiring managers threatened by AI ? Or , could they get empowered by AI ?
Whichever way you look , one thing is certain : their job is about to undergo a major change
Because , new technologies described below have potential to synergize !
THE NEW TECHNOLOGIES
First let us get to know Elias
The robot recognises the pupil’s skill levels and adjusts its questions accordingly. It also gives feedback to teachers about a student’s possible problems.
Next, learn how how “ Vera –the – robot “ , is interviewing blue collar workers , at ,
A Russian startup is using , artificial intelligence software designed for recruiting, to help its 300-odd clients—including PepsiCo, Ikea, and L’Oréal—fill vacant jobs. (Yes, with humans.)
Vera speeds the vetting of high-turnover service and blue-collar positions (clerks, waiters, construction workers), cutting the time and cost of recruitment by as much as a third, according to its creators.
The software can interview hundreds of applicants simultaneously via video or voice calls, narrowing the field to the most suitable 10 per cent of candidates.
Vladimir Sveshnikov (28) and Alexander Uraksin (30), co-founders of Stafory, a 50-person startup in St. Petersburg
The co-founders, with a background in human resources, two years ago found themselves making hundreds of calls to candidates who’d lost interest in the given job or couldn’t be located. “We felt like robots ourselves, so we figured it was better to automate the task,” Uraksin says.
Vera, named after Sveshnikov’s mother, combines speech recognition technologies from Google, Amazon.com, Microsoft, and Russia’s Yandex.
Programmers fed 13 billion examples of syntax and speech from TV, Wikipedia, and job listings to expand the software’s vocabulary and help it speak more naturally and understand responses.
The robot started working in Russia in December 2016, and Stafory has since added clients in the Middle East and pilot projects in Europe and the U.S. The company says its revenue will top $1 million this year.
Human recruiters still vet the candidates cleared by Vera.
Now, let us turn to Alexa , and wonder :
How long before some smart Indian Start Up , comes up with a “ Voice App “ which turns on its head , the current role of Alexa to provide answers to questions / commands of the owner ?
How long before you tell Alexa :
“ Alexa , can you ask me interview questions for the job of a BUSINESS ANALYST ? “
And , not only will Alexa ,
· shoot off those questions from its vast database of Interview Questions
· listen and record your answers ( “ Speech – to – Text “ conversion database )
· tell you your “ Raw Score “ and “ Percentile Score “
· advise you of a few , most suitable job-vacancies ( picked up from job portals ) , based on matching of your “ Skills – Domain Knowledge “ with “ job description “
· and if you say , “ go ahead and apply “, also email your resume ( with the score ) to the concerned job-advertiser !
And who knows . how long before Alexa can turn itself into a “ Candidate Bot “ ( an avatar of the candidate ) and even appear for that job interview on your behalf !

Building a voice app is a different ballgame as compared with building a regular Android or iOS app. A developer needs to build a mental roadmap of how a user could potentially converse with a voice app.
"There is no visual element for these ‘skills’. You have to plan the conversation in your head and translate it into code.
You have to think of utterances. What is the user going to say?" said Priyankar Kumar, a third-year computer science student at a private college who has developed seven app ..
And here is how I believe , the above-mentioned TECHNOLOGIES will redesign Online Recruitment Industry in next 5 years :
Will Chatbots take away Jobs ? [ 24 June 2017 ]
PROJECT FORE COURT ( 05 Oct 2003 )
Goal of this concept is :
Jobs For All = Peace on Earth
I believe , something like this is already attempted by :
I wish good luck and god-speed to all of them !
