The first speakers for the international conference Intelligent Machines and the Future of Recruitment, which takes place on the 2nd of June in Amsterdam, have been announced.

Textkernel conference: Intelligent machines and the Future of RecruitmentIntelligent Machines and the Future of Recruitment is the conference, organised by Textkernel in honour of its 15th anniversary, that explores the impact of rapidly evolving machine intelligence on the future of people and jobs. Among the speakers are Glen Cathey (Kforce), Behshad Behzadi (Google), Federico Pistono (author), Maarten de Rijke (University of Amsterdam), Martin le Vrang (ESCO), Perry Timms (Media Zoo), Ton Sluiter (USG People), Balazs Paroczay (Randstad Sourceright) and Prof. Dr. Armin Trost (Furtwangen University).

“The rise of machine learning, search engines, semantic technologies and the large amounts of available information are changing the labour market,” says Jakub Zavrel, CEO of Textkernel. “When I started the company 15 years ago, the use of AI in recruiting was still in its infancy. Now, it’s an essential part in almost all new technologies. Companies like us have been making AI and semantic search technology part of the mainstream. What better way to celebrate Textkernel’s anniversary than to organise a conference to spark the discussion on how artificial intelligence will evolve and change the way we hire and work.”

The international conference Intelligent Machines and the Future of Recruitment will be held on the 2nd of June at the historic stock exchange building Beurs van Berlage in the heart of Amsterdam. Tickets can be bought here.
