Computer vision, machine learning and neuroscience are part of the new wave of HR technology. But what are they? Below we reveal their definitions and how they can be used in recruitment.
What is computer vision?
Computer vision acts as the eyes of an AI. This technology can visually process the world around them and they can be programmed to analyse the information it collects. For example, computer vision is used as part of our video analysis tool. The technology analyses each candidate’s facial expressions and micro-expressions from their video interview. Micro-expressions are facial movements that happen before we are consciously aware of them. This means computer vision is able to detect a candidate’s true emotion at that moment, instead of what they may like to present to an interview panel.
This tool can be used to recruit across all industries. However, it is especially useful in customer-focused roles where ‘reading people’ or presenting yourself positively or empathetically is required. Computer Vision can observe how easy a person is to talk to, and how approachable they will be to customers – even under pressure.
What is machine learning?
Machine learning is a subset of AI. Like a brain, it is able to learn and independently come to its own conclusions. It is widely used in our everyday lives, for instance, it is used to recommend you products online.
It can be used in recruitment to identify the best candidates for you. For example, our team will give it data on your top performers and machine learning can select the common attributes that make that group successful. It will then use this knowledge to pick the best candidates from the applicant pool.
What is neuroscience?
Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system. By focusing on the brain we are able to reveal its impact on a person’s behaviour and cognitive functions.
This is actually a great resource in recruitment. Using neuroscience we are able to understand a candidate on an individual level, regardless of the volume of applicants. Equipped with this personality and cognitive data you can get to know the candidate before you meet them, you will understand what drives them and how they will react in certain situations. At Cognisess we do this by assessing applicants with our scientifically backed games which will enhance your decision making.
A powerful combination
Computer vision, machine learning and neuroscience are only beginning to transform recruitment. At Cognisess we apply them in one user-friendly platform. Book a free demo with us to see how we do it.
