On Wednesday 28th November 2018, we held our annual New Frontiers Seminar, always a popular event, this year was no exception and very well received, see below for an outline of the event.  

The theme for this year’s annual event was: ‘How is technology disrupting the recruitment and development process?’. A huge topic, but our speakers who were a mixture of practitioners currently navigating this space and representatives from organisations, were able to pass on their knowledge and experiences of harnessing advances in technology to improve the recruitment process.  

Topics and Speakers:

A Practitioner’s View of Game-Based Assessments

Ben Williams, Founder and MD of Sten10 provided an introduction to the world of Game-based assessment (GBA), from the point of view of a practitioner navigating their way through the various options and sharing some ideas of how to make an informed choice about when and if to use them. 









Engineering for Equality: how behavioural and data science can make recruitment smarter, fairer and easier  

Kate Glazebrook



Kate Glazebrook, CEO and Co-Founder of Applied - Kate spoke about her early work in the Behavioural Insights Team advising the UK government, and how that led to the creation of Applied, using nudge and evidence-based design to reduce the bias in recruitment decisions.  








AI Versus Traditional Assessments: accuracy, ethics and practical implications 

Kiki and Gema New Frontiers 2018


Dr Kiki Leutner, Head of Science Game Based Assessments and Dr Gema Ruiz de Huydobro, Business Psychologist, I-O Psychology Consultant, HireVue

Kiki and Gema gave the background to HireVue and looked at whether AI can help us create better assessments of intelligence, competencies, and personality? Research suggests algorithms can accurately detect personality traits based on observed behaviour. There is increasing evidence that video and game based assessments are accurate alternatives for traditional structured interviews and IQ tests. New assessment technologies are gaining ground in applied practice, Kiki and Gema discussed what is possible, what is ethical, and what precautions need to be taken before adapting AI based assessment solutions.
