There’s been so much in the news lately about the possibility of AI taking jobs done by humans, and it looks like the US’ largest bank is keen to jump on the AI bandwagon.

JP Morgan Chase wants to patent a method to use machine learning to recruit candidates for vacancies, essentially taking the place of a recruitment team or outside recruiters to find future talent.

  • The tech will use “employee public data,” such as internal and external networks, to hunt for candidates.
  • It will generate a “confidence score” based on whether the candidate seems like a good fit for the job, how easy or difficult they may be to recruit, etc.
  • The system will send a “targeted recruitment communication” to the candidate and monitor their application and the results.
  • Because this is a machine learning algorithm, it will also keep track of how well it did its job, learning and improving from its past experiences.
  • The bank believes it will eliminate issues where external recruiters, such as agencies, don’t understand company culture when finding talent.
  • It may also help eliminate any unconscious biases present in human recruitment professionals, helping companies to recruit a more diverse workforce.

The opposite could also apply though, as the tech could potentially develop its own biases, leading to a workforce lacking in diversity. And can recruitment and HR, jobs that are based entirely around people connecting with each other, really be done by AI?
