    Now this would be disconcerting if I were on the job market. Also, there might be more to the "white privilege" notion which can make me feel even more uncomfortable, but that's another story - the man, Ansari, changed his resume name to Jason and found a job.

    When I applied to University, by default foreign students, even if they had the same grades as me would be picked later than a naturalized citizen. I do remember one course though that got me over the top. It was a math course and I got everything right. I only got 98% though.

    I also have some personable and manipulative attributes. That is just cause I'm inline with some older psychoanalysts that admired, Freud's, intellect even if they disagreed on some issues - psychoanalysis was nick named "The talking cure" early on. If I were to be interviewed by AI I think I'd be screwed. Unless the only qualification I needed was finite mathematics (how many different ways can you draw 52 cards from a 52 card deck.)

    I'm an emotional person to some absurdity. I'd be watching a movie with friends and I'd be like Oh noes, I'm going to cry with this scene. Don't cry. Don't cry. This is embarrassing. Trying to look dead pan as a tear rolls down my cheek. Pretending to cough as if to say I'm not crying.

    I kinda' feel like I've taken some religious tone. Google gives me stupid ads from my posting history and I can just get annoyed. But this seems to be going a step further.

    Any thoughts?

    An AI is only as good as its training set and initial conditions.

    This will work well only if the guys don't try to go cheap on evaluation and feedback, or get stubborn about it.

    That said, the goal is to beat a standard HR department's hiring - and that, folks, is one of the lowest bars around.
