FACE-SCANNING AI HIRES BASED ON YOUR FACIAL MOVEMENTS, WORDS AND VOICE

Your resume may not be the only deciding factor in landing your next job – it could be an 'employability score' created by artificial intelligence that has the final vote.

More than 100 big name firms are using HireVue's AI-driven assessment, which is technology that ranks candidates based on their facial movements, choice of words and speaking voice.

Although employers can pursue any candidate, some have told The Washington Post that they usually focus on those the computer system liked best -- leading some experts to question how bias the process may be.

HireVue's technology is employed by many large name companies such as Hilton Hotels, Unilever and Goldman Sachs, according to The Washington Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

HireVue could well be contributing to some really bad luck for some of us who don't come off as both beautiful, and clever; I certainly would get a "pass" on most valuations it considers critical for a hiring reference.

Once a big US co declined me based on such an AI program

George

So I set up my own competing startup, took it through a 10,000% growth, climbed to higher daily profit then the big co's local network... and cashed out very nicely after just a year and half. I'm set now, yet they still send me job opening notices... good luck with that. :D Their "AI" failed spectacularly.
