Artificial Intelligence in Hiring: Assessing Impacts on Equality

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) presents risks to equality, potentially embedding bias and discrimination. Auditing tools are often promised as a solution. However this new research, which examines tools for auditing AI used in recruitment, finds these tools are often inadequate in ensuring compliance with UK Equality Law, good governance and best practice.

In this report the authors argue that a more comprehensive approach than technical auditing is needed to safeguard equality in the use of AI for hiring, which shapes access to work. Here, the IFOW present first steps which could be taken to achieve this. The IFOW also publish a prototype AI Equality Impact Assessment which they plan to develop and pilot.
