Chatbots in HR: AI for people, not robots [ Image Inside ]

Rereading Zachary Chertok’s article about artificial intelligence in human capital management reminded me of why we do what we do. Chertok explained the tug-of-war going on between Wall Street and the human capital technology market. Wall Street bases its vision of artificial intelligence on the replacement value of human labor. We in the HCM technology business seek to use AI to help humans work smarter.

From the 1980s until just a few years ago, HR technology focused on making HR work more ef… Read More

Chatbots in HR: Not Just for Self-Service [ Image Inside ]

Fool’s Gold

I used to manage a Blockbuster video store. After one particularly awful interivew, I walked the candidate out toward the parking lot and the shoplifting detection alarms began to sound. It turned out that the candidate stuffed three DVDs in hus suit jacket before being called to the office for an interview. He did not get the job. Nor did he get Mama Mia, Fools Gold, or High School Musical 3 for that matter!… Read More
