New software that has the ability to read candidates subliminal facial expressions live during job interviews and convert these into a range of emotions and specific characteristic traits in real time has been created by a company called Human. The innovative software is ideally placed to support the recruitment process and is the first of its kind, taking AEI (Artificial Emotional Intelligence) and facial recognition a step further into the dynamic realms of characteristic detection.
Going deeper than simply deciphering human emotion, Human’s patent pending software goes beyond that using partial facial recognition, robust camera angles and state-of-the-art pixelated raw data to reveal typical personality traits. Having been developed internally by world leading data scientists, Human’s technology provides advanced levels of unbiased insight to help companies make better and more informed recruitment decisions. From employing the right person for the job, to selecting the best ‘cultural fit’ for the team, the highly accurate technology minimises human bias and provides a level of intelligence previously unattainable.
Yi Xu, CEO and Founder at Human explains: “Traditionally the interview and subsequent recruitment process has always been a bit of a gamble. Interviewers judge people on their own benchmark, which can differ from person to person and from day to day. We want to minimise the human bias in this process and more importantly, the discrimination. Imagine you don’t know who the candidate is behind the video interview – age, gender or race doesn’t matter. You screen candidates based on the personality traits (or the big five personality traits of your choice: passion, honesty, confidence, outgoing, stress, reaction etc.) Our software adds another cost effective dimension to the interview process and another layer of certainty to businesses with supporting data.”
Xu continues: “Using the power of deeper-rooted technology that not only looks at how someone is feeling at that point in time, but also at what kind of person they are, will allow businesses much greater insight into individual human behavioural traits which can be used to great advantage when selecting the right person for the job.”
Human’s technology can also support candidate analysis, employee retention, and cultural fit with unbiased data backing.
