Two lead articles this week, both from sources that rarely appear here, about regulating AI. Both articles mention recruitment as an area of particular interest.
I don’t think regulation is anymore an ‘if’ but a ‘when’. Recruitment has, for some time, been an area with some of the highest levels of innovation in our space. Small startups have been able to develop some fascinating products but also products which have left a lot of experienced researchers and AI practitioners - me included - sceptical about their success, side effects and how they achieve their predictions. From an AI perspective I struggle to understand how they clearly define their objective functions when humans can rarely articulate them.
Regulation will likely increase the barriers to entry and force more consolidation. I think it’s an interesting development but overall I think it’s necessary.
