We’re counting down the days until The Recruiting Automation Summit begins. Two days packed with great speakers, actionable insights and an opportunity to meet some of the most progressive people in the recruiting space is less than two weeks away!

If you haven’t had the opportunity to look through the agenda, we’re highlighting just a few of the great sessions in this blog post.

Opening Keynote with Billy Beane
Billy Beane, executive VP of baseball operations for the Oakland A’s and subject of the book & feature film, “Moneyball” will kick off the day with a presentation about how he changed the way the MLB found and recruited top players. Beane’s approach, based on a data analytics methodology, led the Oakland A’s to six American League West Division Titles. That strategic methodology has come to be known as the “Moneyball” philosophy, named for the best-selling book and Oscar-nominated film and making Beane one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today.

Panel Discussion: Artificial Intelligence, The Unforeseen Cost of Accessibility
As machine learning is used more and more to make our lives easier, what’s the risk of implementing such technologies? Will we lose skill sets that built our careers in the early days? Will we notice? And further, how will the next generation be affected by such shifts? What’s the cost/benefit analysis when it comes to employing automation? We’re getting these questions answered by experts Mohsen Bayati, associate professor at Stanford University and a Martin Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Rise of the Robots. These panelists are pushing past the surface to uncover the costs and benefits of recruiting automation and how you can approach with caution.

Modernizing Hiring 

The recruiting industry has seen massive shifts in just the last 20 years as classified ads have turned into job boards, social recruiting has turned into recruitment marketing and so many more trends have shaped and reshaped the world of talent acquisition.

Better yet, this session is approved for 1 (HR (General)) recertification credit hours toward California, GPHR, PHRi, SPHRi, PHR and SPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute.

Will a Bot Take My Job?
Much has been promised by vendors about how artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other technologies will make human recruiters obsolete.
