Luvuno has begun using AI as a part of the recruitment process at her firm Transcend Talent Management and on behalf of several business clients.

She explains the benefits of AI, adding that it circumvents implicit biases of human recruiters and interviewers.

Luvuno says the AI identifies a candidates aptitude for certain skills and their talent potential.

She says the AI is used as pre-assessment tool, implementing behavioural and epigenetic science.

According to Luvuno, AI has helped recruiters identify potential and create necessary training interventions.

She believes that machine intelligence can be used to create better employee experience and candidate experience.

AI takes out the human factor.

AI can assess potential and performance... It takes out all of that human bias and suddenly there's a world of opportunity opened up.

In a country like South Africa, I think it's a perfect solution.

With AI, the science behind the way you work has got to be solid and understand context and environment.

The jobs are still going to be there, but it's just going to be different kinds of jobs.

You can begin to take people with potential.
