AI-backed recruitment services promise more accurate match-making

AnyMind Group, which aims to transform industries through artificial intelligence (AI), has launched TalentMind, a new business unit with proprietary AI-driven recruitment software.

TalentMind will offer an integrated platform that taps on natural language processing (NLP), profile analysis and machine learning to screen, analyse and match prospects to businesses. The platform will be launched in four phases:

● TalentMind screening - leverage social media and résumé data to determine a prospect’s cultural fit and personality through candidate profiles. The person’s behavioural and personality traits, role competency and skills will be studied.

● TalentMind analytics - analyse the abilities and personalities of top performers across an organisation and develop custom hiring models that evolve in real-time. These hiring models will also be used to match candidates to different organisations.

● TalentMind sourcing - Engage with candidates directly on the platform

● TalentMind matching - Candidate-to-company matching based on organisational hiring and talent models

Leveraging on learning algorithms, a human resource professional can develop customised hiring models that are optimised in real-time, based on candidate pick up and acceptance rate, existing company culture and core competencies of high-performing staff within the organisation. The AI engine will be further enhanced under the supervision of newly-appointed advisor to AnyMind Group, Masayasu Morita, CEO, Founder and President of Hitomedia.

Kosuke Sogo, CEO and co-founder of AnyMind Group said: “We scaled our headcount very quickly the past 20 months and found areas in the hiring process that could have been optimised. Our human resource team has now integrated TalentMind into their workflow and have used the platform to bring in an additional team for this expanded vertical.”

The TalentMind Platform is powered an AI-driven matching engine similar to that being used by sister company CastingAsia, for influencer marketing.

“We are already utilising our AI engines to drive the matching of social media influencers to brands and are now scaling it into the human resource industry. Ultimately, we want to enable professionals to make smarter decisions with a suite of AI-driven solutions across business lines,” said Sogo.

Since starting operations in April 2016 as AdAsia Holdings, the now 21-month-old AnyMind Group has expanded into 10 offices in nine countries and territories with over 250 staff, and is aiming to expand into 15 offices across 14 countries with a headcount of 400 by the end of 2018.
