Mitch Chesney of CodeSignal tackled the buzz around AI in hiring, providing practical insights on detecting and leveraging AI. With ChatGPT proliferating, some companies invest heavily in defensiveness, fearing candidates may cheat. CodeSignal’s “Suspicion Score” uses AI scanning millions of events to flag abnormal submission patterns. This allows quick identification without automatic dismissal.

Other companies see AI as a competitive advantage, with engineers adopting tools like ChatGPT. CodeSignal developed Cosmo, an AI assistant bounded by rules, to provide candidates debugging help and platform guidance without answers. Cosmo’s interactions are transcribed so companies can see how candidates use AI.

CodeSignal also uses AI to interpret assessment results, rating code quality and extracting insights based on its scientific question design. This removes bias and saves time compared to manual reviews. AI insights highlight candidate strengths/weaknesses aligned to role needs, helping identify “diamonds in the rough.”

Key takeaways:

  • AI suspicion scoring allows abnormal assessment detection
  • Bounded AI assistants can aid candidates without providing answers
  • AI assessment insights drive fair, efficient decision-making
