Artificial intelligence (AI), semantic search and machine learning automation are the latest buzz words across industries. How can they impact talent acquisition and recruitment professions? Workforce brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “Artificial Intelligence, Automation and the Future of Talent Acquisition.”

Industry professionals and researchers believe that AI and automation will have a major impact on human resourcing and employment over the next few years. Many human resource managers are already seeing evidence of this, while others are still cautious about AI’s impact on their processes and success.

More than one third of human resource managers have indicated that one of the biggest time wasters in their day is seeing candidate search results that don’t match the context of their search. This is where semantic search capabilities can help by interpreting a recruiter’s simple keyword searches and applying custom ontology and taxonomy structure to better understand the intent of a user. The result is more accurate search results as well as better handling of acronyms, synonyms and related concepts.
