Ep. 061 - Will your next job interview be conducted with artificial intelligence?

December 19, 2019

This episode could perhaps be a Bob & Kevin Show FIRST! We stayed focused on on a single topic for a full hour... and this topic is right up the BK Show alley! In episode 61 we discuss the use of artificial intelligence for the job interview process. We did pick on https://www.hirevue.com/ because they surfaced in an article from our friends over at Recode - https://www.vox.com/recode/2019/12/12/20993665/artificial-intelligence-ai-job-screen.

One of the things that really caught our attention was the references to A.I. "eliminating bias and discrimination" - so you know we had to jump on that.

We also found a couple videos offering advice if you are ever asked to participate in an A.I. fueled interview process.

We don't typically shy away from controversial topics, but we really debated if we would discuss this topic or not - it is super tricky at best and we just want to say, we tried. Both Bob & Kevin had thoughts on how difficult it is to define what diversity is vs. should be. Heck, we even started the conversation with the fact that we (as two white males) may not even be permitted to discuss this issue... alas, we were not thwarted in sharing our thoughts and opinions (which are completely our own, btw and not those of our employers... past, present and probably not future). 

We are sure you have insight and thoughts you want to share with us on this topic and maybe you want to even call us out for some of our views... feel free to so at https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow
