  5. 5. What is Automation? 5 Automation is the use of various control systems to move manual operations or those done by humans to processes that require minimal or reduced human intervention.
  6. 6. What is Machine Learning? 6 Machine Learning is a current application of AI based around the idea that we should really just be able to give machines access to data and let them learn for themselves.
  7. 7. What is Artificial Intelligence? 7 Artificial Intelligence is the broader concept of machines being able to carry out tasks in a way that we would consider “smart”.
  8. 8. What is a Knowledge Graph? 8 The Knowledge Graph is a knowledge base used by Google to enhance its search engine's search results with semantic-search information gathered from a wide variety of sources.
  9. 9. What is a Deep Learning? 9 Deep learning (also known as deep structured learning or hierarchical learning) is the application of artificial neural networks (ANNs) to learning tasks that contain more than one hidden layer. Deep learning is part of a broader family of machine learning methods based on learning data representations, as opposed to task-specific algorithms.
  10. 10. What is a Unified Taxonomy? 10 Taxonomic data form a substantial, but scattered, resource. The alternative to such a fragmented system is a 'unitary' one of preferred, consensual classifications. For effective access and distribution the (Web) revision for a given taxon would be established at a single Internet site.

  26. 26. What is Semantic Search? Find what you mean ... not what you type Search for things ... not for strings
  27. 27. Semantic Search & Match. Why? More relevant candidates, faster! 1. More candidates: Expanding words to concepts No guessing what candidate wrote in the resume 2. Relevant candidates: Better filtering and ranking Avoid wrong matches by understanding context 3. Work faster - Start working on the most promising candidates first - Be a great searcher without advanced Boolean search - Use documents (jobs, resumes) to start automated searches A twoword user query = 35+ system query
  28. 28. 3 Elements of Semantic Search Document understanding Domain knowledge Machine Learning ➔CV & job parsing ➔Information extraction ➔Taxonomies ➔Ontologies ➔Skills ➔Keywords ➔Algorithms learn from a large set of data ➔Learning to Rank ➔Deep Learning
  29. 29. The job is automatically converted into a search query.. .. and matched to the candidates in your database(s) ... and vice versa! Semantic Expansion Example
