AI and the Power of Change: Co-hosted by impress.ai & Accenture

Over 300 gusts came to support the new partnership between Accenture and impress.ai.

impress.ai, an AI chatbot software for recruiters, partnered with Accenture, to host AI and the Power of Change on Thursday 16th August, 2018.

The evening consisted of insights, use cases, and panel discussions about:

  • The new partnership between Accenture and impress.ai
  • How AI is used to find talent and embedded across functions
  • Advice for aspiring data scientists to make an impact in their career

Highlights of the event

Speakers from Accenture Singapore spoke about how their team is using technology and analytics to find the right talent for their team. Using recruitment tools like impress.ai, they have launched a Digital Assessment Center where the emphasis will be less on a candidate’s CV and more on their experience and potential. Accenture advocates hiring in an ethical and fair manner while also bringing more women onboard to close the gender gap in the consulting industry.

Following the information sharing session, the panel discussion shared their advice for aspiring data science professionals.

Sudhanshu Ahuja, CEO and co-founder at impress.ai said, “Take AI out of the equation, instead talk about ROI, proof of concept, and proof of value. Then get the audience comfortable with your technology. They will not fully adopt it until they trust it. So, explain your technology in simple terms and once they understand the technology, then the impact will be exponential.”

Other panelists agreed that if analysts try to explain a model, people may feel lost. A good data scientist should focus on communicating what numbers mean and translating data into real business terms.

A key skill for data scientists to develop is presentation skills. Speakers suggested improving this skill by watching TED talks to see how other people present their thoughts.

One last piece of advice for aspiring data scientists includes understanding business challenges and focusing on using data to solve problems.

Demystifying AI for HR: Co-hosted by impress.ai & WeWork

Artificial intelligence (AI), automation, chatbots, and their effects on recruitment and HR.

impress.ai, an AI chatbot software for recruiters, partnered with WeWork, a coworking space, to host Demystifying AI for HR on Thursday 19th July, 2018.

The goal of this event was to demystify the concept of artificial intelligence for HR professionals. The evening consisted of insights and discussions about:

  • Common myths and misconceptions about AI
  • How AI is used across different aspects of HR
  • Capabilities and limitations of HR technology

Highlights of the event

A quick survey of those who attended the event showed that there is a growing number of people concerned about how AI may affect their job stability. This was one myth which was debunked during the presentation. One key takeaway for the audience was that AI can help them find top candidates who may normally be overlooked based on their resume. Attendees also saw first-hand how the conversational bot shortlists candidates based on competency, while removing bias from the hiring process.
