About the Company
With a deep-learning AI platform and massive datasets (on more than a billion careers, representing much of the working world) companies can hire and manage a diverse, global workforce. This is especially important now, given the attention being paid to talent and how rapidly the skills needs of companies are changing; in other words, how much transformation is happening.
The technology allows us to infer people’s skills, and understand adjacent skills. Eightfold.ai can predict the job someone could take next, and the job after that. If you know computer language A, for example, you very likely have the potential to learn computer language B quickly. Armed with this data and insights about people’s skills and potential, Eightfold helps companies fulfill difficult hiring needs, retain people by helping them move people internally, and transform their businesses.
