How AI Can Better Our Education, Careers, and Businesses

Artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine learning or machine intelligence, is in its infancy yet poised to fundamentally change how we work, are educated, and run our businesses. AI is already impacting how leading employers engage with students and recent graduates and then hire and manage them.

AI offers tremendous opportunities to those in talent acquisition and human resources as well as society as a whole, but also poses some threats.

University relations, talent acquisition, and other human resource leaders from corporate, non-profit, and government organizations gathered on on Monday, December 10, 2018 at Google for a highly interactive, collegial, and informative day of learning. It was goal of the organizer, College Recruiter, that the hundreds who attended either in person or via livestream left with a roadmap for how they and their organizations could not only survive, but also thrive by using AI to enhance their existing talent acquisition tactics and strategies.

This video captures the opening keynote and related panel discussion at the College Recruiting Bootcamp on AI at Google. (more…)

Symphony Talent now using Google Cloud Talent Solution to power career site job search, just like College Recruiter does

Ever have one of those, “Aha!”, moments where suddenly a puzzle that seemed to be missing a piece to became complete? That’s how I felt a little earlier today.

Peter Clayton of TotalPicture forwarded to me a press release that he received from our friends over at Symphony Talent. They were announcing that they are now live as a Google Cloud Talent Solution partner, under which Symphony Talent will use Google’s search technology — the best in the world — to power the job search on the websites of its employer clients. Ah, now I get why Symphony Talent’s chief executive officer Roopesh Nair will be a panelist at our College Recruiting Bootcamp on AI at Google. We were very happy to have him fly across the country from New York City to San Francisco to be a panelist at our event. And the event looks to be a tremendous hit with about 200, senior, talent acquisition leaders as attendees, presenters, and panelists combined with a superb venue and Peter’s recording and live streaming, but that’s still a long way for Roopesh to travel. Given today’s announcement from Symphony Talent, however, it now makes perfect sense. Our event will be a great opportunity for him to talk about how and why Symphony Talent decided to use Google’s AI-powered search technology, which College Recruiter believes delivers more relevant search results at a lower cost than anything else on the planet.

College Recruiter’s site is powered by the same technology, and we couldn’t be happier with the technology or the service that we’ve received from Google. To our friends at Symphony Talent, we say, “Welcome aboard and congratulations on making yet another wise decision on behalf of your employer clients”.

Here is the press release:
