On this podcast Jason Stoughton is joined by Brad Newman. Brad is a litigation partner at Baker McKenzie and leads the firms North America Machine Learning and AI practice and is the Chair of the American Bar Association Business and Commercial Litigation AI subcommittee.
It is hard to find a company today that does not use AI within their recruitment, screening and hiring process. It has almost become ubiquitous within the hiring industry. However, brad argues that companies are potentially putting themselves at legal risk by using these systems because bias is sometimes unintentionally built into the algorithms.
And in fact, regulatory agencies have announced that they will be taking a hard look at these practices going forward.
But interestingly, Baker McKenzie recently sponsored a survey of C-suite leaders and few felt that there was a significant risk involved with their practices around AI in recruiting and HR. So obviously there is a disconnect in the marketplace.
We unpack all of this and more in the podcast. And I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
