Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly making its mark on the recruitment industry. A new podcast series, ‘AI in Recruitment,’ hosted by Martijn Hemminga and Jasper Spanjaart, delves into the burgeoning role of AI in the sector. The show aims to explore the various aspects of AI’s integration into recruitment processes, from its advantages and challenges to its future prospects.
The Inception of a New Podcast
In an era where technology is ever-evolving, AI is becoming a mainstay in recruitment practices. Martijn Hemminga and Jasper Spanjaart (both from Recruitmenttech.com) the co-hosts of the new podcast series ‘AI in Recruitment,’ aim to explore how AI is reshaping the hiring landscape. The series covers a range of topics to help recruiters and HR professionals understand the complexities and opportunities associated with AI-driven recruitment.
A Closer Look at AI
Each episode of the series is designed to offer in-depth insights into AI and its implications. The debut episode starts by defining what AI is and its various applications, ranging from virtual assistants to personalized advertising. Hemminga emphasizes, “We’re not experts on AI, but we want to delve deeply into different aspects of it to improve our own understanding.”
Spanjaart further expands on this by saying, “AI’s role in recruiting technology has surged, whether or not those in talent acquisition are aware of it. Our podcast serves as a platform that brings together both the users and suppliers of recruitment technology, providing a comprehensive overview of the current state and future of AI in recruitment.”
Updates and News in AI and Recruitment
Each episode features a segment dedicated to current news and updates in the field of AI and recruitment. In one such update, a new branch of programming is gaining traction to improve the reliability of AI, according to a report by the Washington Post. This new role, often referred to as the ‘prompt editor’ or ‘AI whisperer,’ involves individuals consulting with AI in natural language to identify and correct its limitations.
Other Developments in the AI Space
Notably, Elon Musk is reportedly working on establishing a new research lab focused on developing an alternative to ChatGPT. Musk, one of the original co-founders of OpenAI, parted ways with the company in 2018 due to ideological differences. Since then, he has been an outspoken critic of OpenAI and its products, referring to ChatGPT as “too woke.”
