DD-SCAN – AI-based language and multimedia bias checker for corporate communication content

Project description

Increasing the number of possible applicants and decreasing hiring costs for tech-related companies

For the most part, technology companies have celebrated a boom as regards demand for services and products. A decade of success in the sector has provided companies with the opportunity to grow and generate revenue. However, there’s a possible downside. Tech-related industries will face a shortage of workers in the coming years, with the issue of gender and ethnic diversity coming to the forefront as currently there is no way to ensure inclusivity when making job postings. The EU-funded DD-SCAN project aims to reverse this trend. It developed a tool that will help to increase qualified applicants and lower the costs related to hiring tech employees. It will achieve both goals by creating a new standard for developing inclusive corporate content. This solution is currently being tested by organisations in Denmark, Germany, Sweden and the UK.
