In 2017, IBM conducted a survey for 6,000 executives about how cognitive computing could change the HR and employee experience. In fact, more than half of them, 66 percent suggests the significant impact.

Therefore, the technology like AI could change the dimensional aspect from HR. Also, 54 percent others suppose the impact would influence the key role within the company recruitment.

If Russian robot is the future job interviewer, this might also be applied in your company. In accordance with that, the AI would arrange the automated interview schedule with hundred of candidates quickly.

Interestingly, AI could also identify a difference in your working pattern. If there's any changing activity or pattern of communication, they would predict if you ever think of resigning.

Obviously, there are many impacts from AI that would make it accessible for the company in achieving the success. Perhaps, the candidate management by AI would be the future of the company.
