Systems such as IBM Watson have a myriad of uses when it comes to the utilization of AI within a business, however for the purposes of this article, I wish to talk about how IBM’s retraining will aid company’s HR and recruitment departments to get the most out of this tech and build a culture of AI-savvy employees.

AI retraining has become essential in the HR and Recruitment sector because companies and their employees have not been using this technology to its full potential. By specifically targeting HR departments, IBM is giving companies the tools to hire employees ready for an ever-changing work environment. Let’s look at a few examples:

Shortlisting – To this day, major companies are still busy analyzing resumes, conducting database searches, or working their way through LinkedIn to find talent.  The reality is that artificial intelligence can perform far more of the shortlisting tasks needed with a higher level of accuracy if the inputs of the query are better predefined.  Hence where the training comes in around the sorts of queries or even job specification that should be listed into the system, to allow the AI to find the best candidates for you. The moral of the story is: bad inputs result in bad outputs and good inputs result in good outputs.
