Artificial intelligence has the ability to make positive, impactful change in the world. There’s just one problem – machine learning inherits our own biases. Amazon had to scrap its predictiving hiring AI after feeding in a decade’s worth of resumes only to find the artificial intelligence preferred male candidates and penalized resumes with only women colleagues listed or that even said the word “women.” In order for artificial intelligence to really be effective we will need to reckon with implicit bias. But in the meantime, there are several artificial intelligence solutions that can help your business run more smoothly – if you trust them to do so.
Hiring is a process that is long and tedious, and for small businesses it can take so much of your time that you don’t seem to have time for much else.

FlatPi is an automated end-to-end hiring platform that weights applicants based on criteria you set. But even if you don’t trust AI to handle this level of task, there are plenty of other things AI can help you with.
