Using ethical AI to level the playing field in the recruiting world
Over the past year and a half, millions of Americans have filed for unemployment, offices turned into virtual formats, and the future of the global workforce has changed forever. Due to the rise of digital innovations and the growing popularity of remote working, the number of applicants for vacancies has increased exponentially. Data scientist and ethical AI advocate, Saishruthi Swaminathan, is redefining modern recruiting by providing the framework for bias-mitigated recruiting using AI.
Recognized as a semi-finalist in the Silicon Valley Business Plan Competition for her sales pitch for SAIRA, ethical recruiting based on AI to eliminate the biases and stereotypes found in traditional recruiting. Understanding first-hand the impacts of stereotypical hiring models and the people they favor, Saishruthi Swaminathan seeks to cultivate meaningful change to level the playing field by using ethical AI to appoint the right person for the right job.
In SAIRA’s business model, recruiters only see the projects, expertise, and personality scores of the job seekers they are evaluating, excluding background and personal information. Believing that recruiting is a two-way street, SAIRA mentors voluntarily connect with job seekers to help them prepare both technically and mentally for each job. Job seekers would have the opportunity to lean on top-tier mentors, showcase their personalities, get information on recruiting trends, skills recommendations and tips to build a one-page portfolio .
As a data scientist and advocate for ethical AI, Saishruthi Swaminathan advocates for change to create a more just and inclusive work environment, and to empower employers and potential employees in the process. Saishruthi’s groundbreaking work in the field of ethical AI is sweeping not only Silicon Valley, but various industries across the globe for his unwavering dedication to inclusion and fairness.
âI love the field of ethical AI and have made an effort to educate everyone about fairness in AI models. This business idea of ââusing fairness in recruiting is imperative for every industry. The future success and innovation of businesses depends on hiring a diverse talent pool. – Saishruthi Swaminathan
