A.I interviews through Quinncia etc. and resume scanning I believe, will decrease employment in this field.

They get fooled by some people that later do poorly at their job. It could be solved using AI. We are all humans, we are all biased.

We can automate all the processes involved in managing human resources for an organization, however, productivity will always require human processes of trust, empathy, orientation, focus and resilience. By nature, human beings are gregarious and it is in their DNA to socialize.

As automation effects jobs under human resources it will no doubt effect human resources themselves

HR will go away when all types of jobs are eventually replaced and there is no more human capital to manage and complex relations, conflict management and organizational structure to change. Payroll/administration jobs in HR will probably be automated in the next 10-15 years but the “human” in Human Resources is not going away until most other jobs have as well.

As long as HR provides the personal touch and emphatic ear, it will be difficult for AI to replicate the outcome whole making business count

No chance, because only real people can understand real people.

Because dealing with people requires a profound understanding of people’s feelings and behaviours as well as some psychological conditions.
