The artificially intelligent recruiting assistant is a chatbot that communicates directly with applicants looking for tech jobs via text, email, or through its own chat platform. Grayevsky says Mya is a natural outgrowth of First Job’s efforts to connect qualified candidates with recruiters.By automating up to 75% of the application process, recruiters are able to cut down on the time spent reviewing what Grayevsky estimates to be “tens of thousands” of applications, and more time conducting interviews and making offers.“Knowledge work, for the first time, can be produced at volume from NLG-AI systems,” Gould says.“Far from killing the jobs of knowledge workers, this tends to free them up to do what they are paid to do–innovate, model, refine, and improve on the expertise of their business.”So what exactly should we be looking out for as artificial intelligence becomes more prevalent?It would be an acquisition channel for payment gateways, meaning they get access to a bot platform’s entire customer base and set of customer behavioral data.In fact, France’s Lydia has already teamed with Slack, making it the messaging platform’s first payment bot for Slack.
After filling out a short application (name, address, etc.) Mya (depicted by a blue smiley face avatar) introduces herself and says she’d like to ask some additional questions.
The answer was created by a student team who created a “chatbot,” an intelligent agent that is supposed to pass off as a human.
Student teams in the Department of Computer Science in the School of Engineering participated in a Turing test, a well-known test where intelligence is verified when a human evaluator is fooled into thinking the agent is actually a human.
Two reports just surfaced that tackle the troubling predictions that automation, artificial intelligence, and robots are going to supplant human workers.
The Mc Kinsey Global Institute and Glassdoor research indicates that we don’t have to worry that we humans will become obsolete.
