The big data trend has made its way to human resource management. Indeed, the availability of large-scale human resource (HR) data provide unparalleled opportunities for business leaders to understand talent behaviors and generate useful talent knowledge, which in turn deliver intelligence for real-time decision making and effective people management at work. In this talk, we introduce the powerful set of innovative Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques developed for intelligent human resource management, such as recruiting, performance evaluation, talent retention, talent development, job matching, team management, leadership development, and organization culture analysis. In addition, we will also demonstrate how the results of talent analytics can be used for other business applications, such as market trend analysis and financial investment.
