Microsoft’s business-focused social network LinkedIn has announced the release of new artificial intelligence (AI) tools to help hiring managers find applicants. An AI-assisted tool for recruiters called “Recruiter 2024” is being piloted by the company. With the help of this technology, recruiters can now use natural language questions to discover applicants on the site and develop job ad campaigns.
Speaking at the Talent Connect Summit in New York, LinkedIn CEO Ryan Roslansky noted that the business requires new playbooks and that AI may aid in their development. LinkedIn released AI-powered tutoring in its LinkedIn Learning area in addition to the AI-assisted recruiting tool.
Based on the user’s professional goals, the AI component will be able to customise information and provide real-time advise. LinkedIn reported a 65% increase in interest in its AI course offerings over the previous year.
The new AI-powered learning and recruiting tools will initially only be accessible to a select group of users before becoming more publicly accessible over the course of the year. For the development of its AI capabilities, LinkedIn is rumoured to have used technology from OpenAI, a company-sponsored by Microsoft and the maker of the well-known AI chatbot Chat-GPT. LinkedIn introduced AI-assisted communications for recruiters in May, and since then, it has revealed that 74% of users claim it saves them time. Several businesses, including LinkedIn, are starting to incorporate AI-powered products into their operation
