Amazon scraps 'sexist' AI recruitment tool, keeping the human in HR

Amazon set up a secret project which attempted to create an algorithm that could pinpoint the perfect candidate from thousands of applicants. However, it was forced to dump the automated software when it was found to screen out female applicants. The issue arose because the data used to teach the algorithm what a successful candidate looks like was based on the company's past workforce - which has been overwhelmingly male. This case suggests that despite the millions being invested into human resourcing software, when it comes to finding the right candidate, there is still no substitute for human skill.
