It enables repetitive tasks to be automated and seeks out more efficient ways to sort out and process information – and then make it more easily available to its human counterparts."
"With this in mind, we’d like to look at specific challenges faced by job seekers, employees, hiring managers and HR departments and look at ways in which artificial intelligence can make people’s lives easier."
