The True Value Of Data And AI In Human Resources

Posted by in categories: business, information science, robotics/AI

As we venture deeper into the digital era, the scope and possibilities of data and artificial intelligence (AI) in human resources (HR) are expanding at an unprecedented rate.

Johnson & Johnson deployed an AI-based writing tool, Textio, to identify unconscious bias in their job listings. Upon identifying a masculine tilt in the language of many of their job postings, they made some AI-driven adjustments that led to a 9% uptick in female applicants.

Unilever employs AI to streamline the initial stages of its recruitment process. Candidates are asked to play a number of games that test their logic, aptitude, reasoning, and appetite for risk. Then the HR team uses machine learning algorithms to assess candidates’ suitability for the role they have applied for, by matching their profiles against previously successful employees. This approach has not only improved the efficiency of Unilever’s recruitment process but also provided a more engaging candidate experience.

Orbit Fab and Australia’s Space Machines Company cooperate on in-orbit servicing

Posted by in category: space travel

WASHINGTON – Australian in-space servicing startup Space Machines Company announced plans Dec. 5 to work with U.S. on-orbit refueling startup Orbit Fab to validate and demonstrate key technologies.

SMC is the first non-U.S. customer to use Orbit Fab’s fiducial alignment markers. The markers are painted on SMC’s Optimus Orbital Servicing Vehicle, which is set to launch in early 2024 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rideshare flight.

Orbit Fab’s fiducial markers are designed to act like a QR code, ensuring, for example, that a fuel shuttle replenishes the correct client. The fiducial markers also ensure proper spacecraft alignment for docking.
