Battling Bias: Is Artificial Intelligence up to the Challenge?

Virtual Event


Bias is sadly nothing new when it comes to hiring. But your organisation’s approach to reducing bias must be. Recent advances in the application of artificial intelligence (AI) have made it possible to identify patterns in data, minimise subjectivity, and control for bias with much higher accuracy than ever before. But, as with all new technology, there is always the concern that AI will only make bias in hiring worse.
Join us to discuss AI and its applications in selection and assessment and learn more about how science-based selection tools can help hiring decision makers focus on the data, as they evaluate candidates and extend job offers. Can AI make assessment fairer? What about more efficient? And what does this do to the overall candidate experience?

During this event, we will explore
• What bias is.
• The state of bias in hiring today.
• AI and its applications in selection and assessment.
• The practical steps you can take today to reduce bias in hiring.
During this event you will hear from Simon Davies, Solutions Director, EMEA at Modern Hire. Simon holds an MSc in Occupational Psychology and a BSc in Psychology and has worked in several London-based talent consulting firms and boutiques for the past ten years. Specialising in talent assessment, volume recruitment and hiring for potential, he has built strong, collaborative relationships with senior talent leaders in leading public and private sector organisations across the UK.
