It’s no secret that artificial intelligence is going to change almost every industry. AI in HR is no longer a matter of if—it’s a when. Each year has brought new startups, new technology, and new innovations. 2019 will be no different. Human resource professionals should keep their eyes peeled for the ways AI will revolutionize the HR industry this year.

On the recruitment side of things, AI can go through entire databases of resumes to find candidates with skills that match open positions. Not only can artificial intelligence systems do this faster than a human recruiter, but if they’re programmed correctly, they’re less likely to factor prejudices into their recruiting decisions. When a human looks at a resume, they may make assumptions about a candidate based on its content. AIs look solely at skills, stripping away the identifiers that influence biased decisions.
