The morning session of day 2 consisted of several presentations to include-How to ensure you survive the Machine Learning and AI disruption by Jeremy Roberts, Its about the Human Sourcing for Soft Skills by Jennifer Shappley, and Can we automate being Human by Katrina Collier.
First up How to ensure you survive the Machine Learning and AI disruption by Jeremy Roberts. This presentation centers around the numerous doom and gloomers who have been saying for some time that
AI is going to put Sourcers and recruiters out of a job. The big take away is this using doctors as an example, “When machines can diagnose better than humans, physicians don’t disappear, they have more time for patient care.” The same would hold true for recruiters we would have more time to call and vet candidates and manager our hiring managers. Now this also holds true to sourcers and keep in mind it will still requires a sourcers to look through the results of an AI search to determine which ones get contacted. In other words an AI will replace tasks not jobs, and they will also create new jobs.
Next up Its about the Human Sourcing for Soft Skills by Jennifer Shappley. To sum this up, soft skills, the human skills, the things an AI really can’t tell for sure are becoming bigger and bigger. 58% of Hiring Managers say a lack of soft skills is limiting productivity. That is huge, and points to another reason why Ai will not do away with sourcers and recruiters.
Lastly Can we automate being Human by Katrina Collier. This is all about how every candidate being a human being has peculiarities, emotions, backgrounds, or in other words the things that make us Human. These are things an AI will not be able to completely account for fur making it clear that AI is a tool not a replacement.
