Unbiased AI robot Tengai recruits her first hire

Artificial intelligence recruiting robot Tengai has already succeeded in helping to make her first hire.

In May, Recruiter reported Upplands-Bro, a municipality in Stockholm County, had signed up to use the robot to recruit a strategic digital co-ordinator.

Recruiter caught up with Tengai, developed by Swedish recruiter TNG, at this year’s RecFest in London. TNG chief marketing and experience officer Charlotte Ulvros revealed Tengai had helped make her first hire for the municipality and gave Recruiter a demo of exactly how Tengai asks follow-up recruitment questions.
