An AI for an Eye: Myths, Facts, and Fads on the Ethics and Bias of AI vs Human Recruitment

To that end, it will examine the scientific evidence for the accuracy of new generation prediction tools vis-a-vis traditional assessment methods, paying particular attention to the issue of bias, as well as ethical implications.

How Carnival Cruise Line Took Control of The Recruiting Strategy to Effect Change

Carnival Cruise Line hires approximately 8,000 employees a year. From nurses to cooks to entertainers to officers, Carnival must staff their fleet well before they set sail. Traditionally cruise lines have relied on third-party agencies and the same short-list of European academies to recruit officers, resulting in a homogenized demographic of candidates. Carnival knew they could do better! Through a combination of their ATS, HireVue OnDemand and Live interviews, departmental alignment, and some key personnel changes, Carnival was able to take recruiting into their own hands. By displacing the third-party agency and creating partnerships with academies across the globe, Carnival has dramatically diversified their candidate pool, and increased their female:male officer ratio. Set sail with Carnival as you learn how they took control and reaped the rewards.

Why Qualified Professionals On The Autism Spectrum Are Underemployed and How You Can Help Break the Cycle

Professionals with autism are having a hard time finding gainful employment. One big reason? Because traditional hiring practices are not equipped to deal with the neurodiverse candidate. Recruiters are often not trained to understand the nuances that come into play when interviewing, and candidates are often uncomfortable with the processes and procedures required to land a job. The result is a missed opportunity for both. In this session learn how Integrate Autism Employment Advisors, a HireVue partner, can help you to design a recruitment plan and process to attract and hire qualified professionals on the autism spectrum. Sharing best practices in mentoring, training, assessing, screening and more, Integrate will show you how to build a foundation for hiring autistic professionals. Integrate is a non-profit that works with organizations to help them identify, recruit and retain qualified professionals on the autism spectrum. Integrate helps companies become autism friendly employers of college graduates with autism by providing assessment, education and training, recruiting and ongoing support services to those organizations.

How to Make AI Smarter – and Why We Should

There is both hope and fear regarding the advance of AI and robotic technologies: will they be our closest partners, or a threat to our jobs, safety, and well-being? Professor Ayanna Howard focuses on designing helpful systems with an emotional intelligence that appropriately reacts to human behavior. Robotic and AI development, she says, should focus on instilling in our creations rules of engagement: “Don’t harm us. Obey us. Protect us.” AI systems that are more human in their behavior and psychology are less likely to violate our social norms, and to be our friends rather than our enemies. In this presentation based on her widely-viewed TED Talk, “Make Robots Smarter,” Howard explains how she develops robots and other AI functions by incorporating everything she knows about human intelligence, behavior and neuroscience, with the aim of producing human-like machines that can empathize and reciprocate trust from actual people. With implications for leading tech companies, as well as the businesses and consumers who will be buying their devices, gadgets, and helpers, Howard explains that by making robots smarter and more human-like, we will be making them less like the dangerous cyborgs of science fiction.

Rethinking the Future of Work

Suddenly the whole world is going digital, everything is mobile, and the people you’re hiring and managing have better tech on their wrists than you used to find, hire and onboard them. The entire HR technology industry is talking about the future of work, the role of HR and next-generation technologies, and digital transformation. We are all experiencing the digital age, the advent and possibility of new technology, the chasm between the way it feels outside of work and the way it feels inside of work. Do you order a new laptop or check your vacation balance (inside of work) as easily as you order a Lyft or check your bank account balance (outside of work)? It's time to close the experience gap - and HR, you're the ones to do it. Jason Averbook discussed the role of HR and next-gen technologies: it’s not to serve the HR function, to make it easier for you to handle the workforce. The role of the next generation of technology is to serve the workforce.

The Evolving Candidate Experience -- What Really Matters?

Everyone knows that a good candidate experience is a must. Candidates will not put up with slow (or nonexistent) communication, they expect transparency, and they demand respect (to name a few musts). But just as talent acquisition is quickly evolving, so are the expectations of your candidates. In this session learn how cutting-edge organizations are focusing on areas like data privacy, diversity and inclusion, and brand marketing to evolve the candidate journey from tired to inspired.
