So AI may be the future in hiring and recruitment but it certainly isn't there yet it seems.

If you're basing it's learning on history which quite possibly may have been biased towards men, then it is likely that it will discriminate against females. Well that is what Amazon have now found out.

The technology which was trained on data from the previous 10 years, much of which came from men, started to filter out female CVs.

Even when they recoded the software to try and make the AI neutral, this didn't guarantee that the technology would not find other ways to discriminate. Such as looking for more male used terms such as 'executed' and 'captured'.
