Oracle Corporation announced on Wednesday that it will be introducing capabilities based on generative artificial intelligence to its human resources software for organizations. Oracle Adds Generative AI features will help with a variety of activities, including the creation of job descriptions and employee performance targets.
AI systems such as ChatGPT that can produce human-like responses to prompts have taken the technology sector by storm, with businesses such as Microsoft Corp and Google integrating them into search engines. ChatGPT can generate human-like responses to a wide range of questions.
Oracle Adds Generative AI because it is possible for generative AI technology to fabricate false facts and be fooled into saying uncomfortable things, many business customers have adopted a more cautious approach to using the technology.
The human resources software provided by Oracle is utilized by major corporations for a variety of purposes, including the recruitment of new workers and the evaluation of employee performance. Oracle is going to add a button to many of the fields in the software that, when clicked, will automatically generate draft text for things like job advertisements or performance targets. This button will be added by Oracle.
According to Rich Buchheim, vice president of product management for Oracle Adaptive Intelligence Applications, putting the AI assistant in the form of a button rather than a chatbot that responds to open-ended prompts written by human users is intended to ensure that the buttons “produce a good result and a safe result.”
Buchheim explained that a human will still be required to review and validate the produced text.
We don’t anticipate that goal-setting will be delegated to generative AI anytime soon. “It will give you a starting place, and it will give you useful information that you can get going with,” said Buchheim. “It will give you a starting place.”
It is anticipated that the functionalities would become available before the end of this year.
Oracle’s Vice President of People Analytics and Human Capital Management Technology and Innovation, Guy Waterman, stated that the company is working on how to use AI for more complex human resources tasks in the further future. For example, Oracle is working on how to write listings of job requirements that comply with local regulations in various markets.
“In order for someone to make a choice and then put that decision into action, it could have taken up to two weeks. According to Waterman, “if we can change that to hours and minutes, that’s where we’re really seeing the difference with the possibilities of generative AI.”
