The use of artificial intelligence in hiring has been increasing astronomically. Using algorithms to replace human screeners is becoming the norm. Companies like Delta, Dunkin, and Ikea now use AI to assess job applicants. And while this has greatly reduced the time and work spent on the employment process, it also comes with a serious threat: machine bias. AI bias in job selection has resulted in discrimination against women and people of color, and though some steps have been taken to fight this issue, civil rights group in New York claim that not nearly enough has been done. Several NY-based groups are pushing for a law that would require potential employers to notify job candidates about the use of AI tools.
