Cangrade announces patent for removing bias in hiring AI

WATERTOWN, Mass., Sept. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cangrade, a bias-free recruiting and talent management solution, was recently granted patent 11429859 for its breakthrough process for mitigating and removing biases from artificial intelligence (AI). With Cangrade, organizations can confidently remove bias from their talent selection decisions and accurately predict candidate success and retention with their unique AI-powered pre-hire assessment.

Many organizations are skeptical about using AI in their talent management because AI algorithms are often biased, despite their accuracy. If biased data is used to construct the AI, the AI ​​replicates those biases. Even when not using AI, many talents are unsure if their recruiting technology is truly bias-free.

To combat bias in talent management, Cangrade’s technology refers to a separate set of negative impact tests to check for disparities and identify statistical elements of an algorithm that lead to bias. Cangrade’s AI processes then run and delete these items iteratively until they identify an accurate, unbiased algorithm. Cangrade is therefore the only one who can offer the success of candidates without prejudice against gender, ethnic origin, age or any other protected category.

Cangrade’s patent for removing AI bias is broad, allowing the company to implement this process outside of HR and talent selection.

“We are delighted to announce the patent for our bias removal technology. The implications for our customers, Cangrade as a business and the industry as a whole are enormous. For the first time in the history of human capital management, we have a public disclosure, fully auditable and effective method for removing algorithmic biases from the hiring process, which have historically been notoriously plagued by implicit and explicit biases of all kinds,” said Gershon Goren. , co-founder and CEO of Cangrade, “We look forward to partnering with other talent management solutions to adopt this technique. Widespread adoption of a verifiable anti-bias technique like ours will benefit the entire industry and society as a whole.”

By leveraging Cangrade, organizations can build diverse and inclusive teams by implementing unbiased solutions to hire talent based on skills, not credentials. Cangrade predicts talent success and retention up to 10x more accurately than traditional recruiting methods with a quick and easy assessment that provides HR teams with talent data they can’t access elsewhere. Their talent management data includes candidate fit scores, retention forecasts, and insights into talent strengths, development opportunities, and career motivations.
