NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- untapt, the leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology solving the hardest problems in talent, hosted its first ever AI Think Tank event at Rise New York. Ed Donner, CEO, alongside Deep Learning Expert and Chief Data Scientist Dr. Jon Krohn, held a lively, thought-provoking event. The Think Tank event united leading business executives in AI technology with HR recruiters in a unique opportunity to share their thoughts and network with top industry representatives.

Highlights of the "Talent Intelligence: A Think Tank on AI in HR Hosted by untapt" evening included a Computer vs. Recruiter challenge, in which the senior recruiters faced off with untapt's AI algorithm to see how their assessments of candidate resumes lined up with the machine's followed by a roundtable discussion, which included talent recruitment leaders:

  • Daniel Corry, Head of Recruitment at Tek Search

"Coming into the event, I had no idea what to expect. But I was really blown away by the enthusiasm and energy everyone brought to the topic," said Ed Donner. "I thought this event would be an opportunity for us to give a helpful lecture and lesson, but I ended up learning so much more just from the discussion afterwards."

The event demonstrated an inherent need for what we've built at untapt," added Dr. Jon Krohn.
