Myths, fears, and unfair expectations still persist in discussions about artificial intelligence and automated talent management. It is a technology that is transforming many aspects of business, but it is neither a panacea for nor a threat to those business operations.

Below, we will explore five of the most common myths surrounding artificial intelligence and its applications in HR.

Myth: AI Will Replace Recruiters

AI-based recruiting tools are very good at screening candidates for their strengths and at predicting someone’s chance for success in a given role. But such tools cannot replace the work a recruiter does.

“It goes without saying that recruitment is a people-first function,” writes Rebecca Skilbeck, the head of customer insights and market research at PageUp. “Candidates want to speak to a recruiter or hiring manager and form an authentic connection, which they won’t be able to get from interacting with a machine.”
