HR Tech Notes: Mya, Ideal, iCIMS


Mya Systems, the leading conversational AI platform for hiring teams, today announced that its conversational AI recruiter, Mya, has been selected as the winner of the “Best Transactional Bot Solution” from AI Breakthrough. AI Breakthrough is a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) market today.

Leveraging the knowledge from the combined industry experience of its team, as well as the millions of conversations Mya has had with candidates, the company is redefining the traditional hiring model for many of the largest enterprises and staffing agencies globally. Inefficiencies in the existing recruitment model means, more often than not, top talent doesn’t end up in the best possible job role. Mya’s mission is to create a simple and powerful solution where job seekers get hired faster, and hiring teams get the most qualified candidates by eliminating friction in the recruiting process. The result is a far more efficient job market powered by AI.

To achieve this, Mya’s natural language understanding capabilities utilize a recurrent neural network architecture and contextualized word embeddings to create an AI recruiting bot with high degree of HR intelligence, and with robust and natural conversational ability. The platform is easy to set up and use, and Mya’s automated outreach and communication with job candidates across the end-to-end recruiting process enables recruiters to focus 100% of their time on converting the most qualified and available candidates for their open jobs.
