The Role of AI in  Enhancing Interview Intelligence

In our previous article, we explored the concept of Interview Intelligence, highlighting its capacity to revolutionize hiring through advanced analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Interview Intelligence transforms interviews into data-driven, insightful experiences, significantly improving hiring effectiveness and equitability. Continuing from that foundation, this article delves into the utilization of AI and Generative AI in Interview Intelligence platforms, showcasing their pivotal role in modernizing the recruitment process.

Bytes of Bias: Rite Aid's AI Misstep Leads to FTC-Enforced Ban

Rite Aid has been banned from using facial recognition technology for five years following a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) ruling. The decision comes after the FTC found that Rite Aid's AI system, used between 2012 and 2020, incorrectly identified consumers, especially women and people of color, as shoplifters. This led to various forms of harassment, including wrongful accusations, police confrontations, and public humiliation.

The FTC's complaint highlights Rite Aid's failure to implement safeguards against these harms. The technology produced numerous false positives, misidentifying individuals based on poor-quality images and inaccurate matches. The system was more prone to errors in stores located in predominantly Black and Asian communities.

As part of the settlement, Rite Aid must now establish comprehensive procedures to mitigate risks when using biometric data and discontinue any such technology if it cannot ensure consumer safety. The company is also required to enhance its information security program and comply with a 2010 Commission data security order, which it previously violated.

With the rapidly advancing field of artificial intelligence, there are now powerful tools available to help organizations optimize their hiring processes. Here are three ways that AI can be used to enhance your hiring practices and give your company a competitive edge.

1. Use AI to continuously refine your hiring practices - AI that compares hiring scores to performance and retention can identify which components of the process are more or less predictive, and adjust their weighting accordingly to improve overall predictive validity. AI can also suggest additional interview questions similar to the most predictive ones, and remove non-predictive questions from the interview process.

2. Use AI to identify your best interviewers - AI can evaluate each interviewer's predictive capabilities by analyzing the percentage of candidates they have hired who are considered top performers and have remained with the organization long-term, versus those who have left or been fired.

3. Use AI to track and mitigate bias in your hiring processes - AI can identify systematic biases at the individual or group level, such as first impressions, overemphasizing credentials versus skills, favoring or disfavoring particular genders or ethnicities, and much more.

All of these capabilities are already out there, allowing talent leaders and recruiters to become more data-driven and focus on high impact activities. The companies that will be late to adopt them will stay behind the curve.
