AI Hiring: Bias in the Code

“While it is true that a machine can do a better job at relentlessly sticking to a narrow script, it cannot see or understand things that are not in the data. Unlike people and their unconscious biases, machines can only change their approach with new measurement and new coding. In other words, while machines may be able to address small components of unconscious bias, they cannot address all (or even most) of it.” - John Sumser
