20-03-2018 • Categories: Active Sourcing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Events, Machine Learning, Match!, News, Search!, Technology
Textkernel is proud to present at the upcoming Sourcing Summit Germany (#SOSUDE), held on 25-26 April in Munich. At the event, Mihai Rotaru, Head of R&D and Ralph Dennes, Head of Business Development, are going to discuss the Artificial Intelligence (AI) “black-box” that powers semantic search. Intelligent software solutions can assist you with finding the right candidate for the right job, but how they actually work?
Learn from sourcing legends about the newest trends
For the second time in the row, Phil Tusing (Destination Talent) together with Kai Deininger (Eurosearch) and Barbara Braehmer (intercessio) bring the Sourcing Summit to Germany. First held in Australia in 2011, the sourcing summit now takes place across four continents. The event highlights the importance of talent sourcing and brings together practitioners to network and learn from each other. Last year’s event was a success with many happy delegates; this year over 300 delegates are expected to participate. During the conference, more than 30 speakers, including some of the biggest names in the industry from all over the world, will share their knowledge and spread new thinking. Among them, Textkernel’s own Mihai Rotaru and Ralph Dennes, who will share insight into the Artificial Intelligence (AI) behind semantic search.
The AI behind semantic search: is there a magic algorithm?
The value of data is zero unless you retrieve the right result, and without the right search terms you discover nothing. Mastering Boolean search requires significant time and skill, but is Boolean the poor man’s alternative to semantic search? (Let an intelligent software solution assist you with finding the right candidate for the right job. But how does it actually work? Together with you, Mihai and Ralph are going to finally open the black-box AI.) They will take you on a journey about how artificial intelligence supports sourcing; why semantic search helps to better match people and jobs; introduce the different elements semantic search is built upon; the “deep learning revolution” changing the recruitment landscape; and what an AI-powered future will look like.

Textkernel’s search software is able to semantically search internal databases for interesting candidates and support active sourcing by simultaneously searching external job boards and social media. Textkernel’s large knowledge database enables automatic searching with synonyms so you find what you are looking for instead of what you type. For more info or a demo, contact Textkernel.
