On March 8, 2023, International Women’s Day, an editathon was organized to increase the representation of women leaders on Wikipedia by creating and editing articles about them. The editathon was organized by Wikimedia Sverige, the Swedish chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation. The event was open to everyone, and participants were encouraged to edit articles about women leaders in any language. Over 1,000 people participated in the editathon, creating and editing over 3,000 articles about women leaders. The editathon was a success and helped increase the representation of women leaders on Wikipedia. In addition to the willpower of the humans, what enabled this is Text summarization, Article Recommendation, and other AI tools that led this incredible journey of inclusion. Such examples should give a lot of hope for Enterprises.
Our machine learning team is developing a model to collect data on all Women’s Development programs across enterprises. We are working on publishing a comprehensive report on the same, including a large text mining of what people discuss about the effectiveness of such programs. We hope to publish this soon and are excited about the combination of such human-machine research (similar to the Wikipedia editathon). Here is an example summarization:
The Human Machine synergy offers significant opportunities for Human resources.
The fusion of human capabilities with machine technology, often referred to as the Human-Machine synergy, holds immense potential, especially within the realm of human resources. To illustrate this concept, consider the innovative approaches taken by companies like Warby Parker and Uber.
Warby Parker, a prominent eyewear retailer, recognized the importance of a standout mobile app in today’s competitive e-commerce landscape. When developing their Software team, they made a deliberate decision to not limit their talent pool to Engineers solely from the traditional e-commerce sector. Instead, they, including Engineers from the hospitality industry. This diversity of experience and perspective allowed them to create a unique and exceptional app that set them apart in the market.
Likewise, Uber, the ride-sharing giant, understood the significance of data science in optimizing its operations. When forming their data science team, they took an unconventional route by enlisting experts in risk underwriting from the insurance industry. These individuals possessed valuable insights into modeling fraud and assessing risks, skills directly applicable to Uber’s operations. This approach enabled Uber to build a robust data science team capable of addressing complex challenges efficiently.
Instacart’s recent introduction of Generative AI-based search functionality, exemplified by queries such as “What should I purchase for a healthy meal?” instead of specifying product names, represents an innovative achievement arising from a diverse team that comprehensively grasped customer needs and challenges.
The common thread in these examples is the strategic blending of diverse skill sets to achieve remarkable outcomes. This diversity in workforces and the resulting synergies have the potential to significantly magnify their impact. Now, with the advent of AI technology, such synergies and diversifications can be implemented at an even larger scale, further propelling innovation and excellence across various industries.
Recruiters play a pivotal role in the hiring process, serving as the bridge between organizations and potential candidates. In this scenario, their effectiveness is crucial in ensuring that a diverse and skilled team is assembled to drive innovation and success. The projects folder within Draup is aimed to help you accomplish this team level hiring.
Recruiters can leverage Generative AI to assess both the alignment of candidates’ skills with job requirements and the diversity of a team from an industry perspective. Generative AI holds the potential to be a valuable tool for recruiters in achieving these objectives.
If we can look at the profiles through the following lens as a recruiter it may be helpful.
Of course! When evaluating job candidates as a recruiter, consider these key aspects:
- Core Skills: Assess their fundamental qualifications and technical abilities.
- Soft or Power Skills: Evaluate their interpersonal and behavioral attributes, such as communication and teamwork.
- Digital Products: Consider their proficiency with relevant digital tools and software.
- Workload Responsibilities: Gauge their understanding of the job’s workload and their ability to manage tasks effectively. What aspects of disruption can the candidate bring in? What unique diversity in workloads can the candidate bring in?
- Industry Experience: Examine their knowledge and experience in the specific industry, which can be crucial for certain roles.
By looking at candidates through these five lenses, recruiters can make more informed decisions when matching candidates with suitable positions and bring disruptive capabilities to the team
