[Excerpt] Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a rapidly emerging technology that is at the forefront of industry innovation and efficiency. Despite the rapid technological advances and energy surrounding AI’s potential, there are pitfalls in terms of AI’s application in the Talent Acquisition (TA) process and many companies have yet to identify strategic points of AI implementation. Through our research, we have identified a variety of AI products available at specific points in the TA lifecycle. We weigh the most apparent drawbacks of using AI in TA as it currently exists, and share research and benchmarks of companies implementing AI in TA. We have identified key areas of AI use in the TA lifecycle, and evidence as to the utility and validity of the technology use along with predictions for future engagement with AI and preparing your workforce.
