> Video interviews analyzed by a computer are going to be just as biased as a face-to-face interview.

To be completely fair, AI on the whole has yet to prove the "I" portion of the title--but HR does not have an "I" in it. And that's quite appropriate.

I believe that every time I've interviewed with the person whom I'd be directly reporting to, I've gotten an offer for employment. Convserely, when interviewing with someone who has a checklist and no true idea of what the job entails, I can't recall an offer being made, with one exception. (And to be completely truthful, I should have turned down that horrible cesspit!)
