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

Uncoded Bias in AI Hiring

“Allowing machines to participate in and perhaps even dictate decisions in Human Resources raises a host of ethical considerations. After all, these systems control various forms of opportunity for the workforce. More precisely, they involve people’s livelihood, hopes and dreams.” - John Sumser
