Posted by HR Open Standards on May 25, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Somen Mondal, Co-Founder and CEO of Ideal - When AI meets HR: Data, Trends and the Future of Recruiting

How can the everyday HR professional harness the power of AI?

Somen lead our 2018 Annual meeting by discussing how artificial intelligence works and it interacts within an HR environment and how that will lead to future trends in recruiting. Using real-life examples (think: Netflix, Amazon), Somen explained complex new technology into simple, relevant concepts. His talk contained data-backed analysis on what is possible right now and even more compelling, what the future holds for AI and HR.

Prior to Ideal, Somen served as Co- Founder and CEO of Field ID until it was successfully acquired in 2012. Somen’s accomplishments include spots on both the Profit Hot 50 and Deloitte Fast 50 lists. In 2012, Somen received the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. Today, Somen works with his team at Ideal to build software that recruiters love. Ideal uses artificial intelligence to automate time-consuming, repetitive recruiting tasks including sourcing, screening, and engaging candidates. Ideal eliminates human bias, improves quality of hire, enhances the candidate experience, and increases recruiter efficiency.
