Can artificial intelligence make more objective decisions than humans? That, at least, is the premise for the use of AI in human resources management. Where people make subjective decisions under the influence of sympathies and personal daily form, algorithms analyze communication patterns in a cool and emotionless way and draw conclusions about how well an applicant is suitable as a manager. Based on an exemplary interview with such a recruiting bot, the experienced personnel manager Gabriele Jahn and Tim Weitzel, Director of the Centre of Human Resources Information Systems (CHRIS) at the University of Bamberg, discuss the opportunities and limits of automation in human resources management.
