I see articles frequently about how recruiters are all on the verge of being replaced by machines...  interesting considering the profession of recruiting has been around for thousands of years.  So,  I respectfully disagree. I just demo'd one of the most sophisticated pieces of new Recruiting software yesterday (and I have played with it before, in its earlier form), and the person doing the demo had to keep apologizing that the program (with 500 million candidates) couldn't identify nearly a tenth or a hundredth of the number of candidates I had already identified. I'm definitely not seeing any AI recruiting software that is competitive with what I can do, have done, and will continue to do. Even if it were perfected (which it is decades away from being), it would still just make a useful adjunct to human recruitment. We are probably closer to seeing robots winning Olympic fencing medals than having recruiters replaced by machines.

Here is one such rather laughable article:  https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/recruitment-industry-die-2018-simon-...
