Hi Kate, thank you for adding thoughts. The negotiation part is an interesting aspect to the proposal. It made me realize that EduFlix is perhaps that matchmaker between educators/ government and content providers in the world. I am pondering over this before updating. Again thank you for your insights as always!
sorry for the late reply! i have been rather busy at work, and my 8 month old boy keeps me entertained otherwise :) its therefore at times hard to find time for this great platform! Yes, the idea is very much to use machine learning to assess skills which companies assess through their assessment centers. Typically we throw away a student CV other than it being used for an initial screen. That initial screen is very biased. When i worked at one of the top financial institutes in the world in London, you only consider CVs from certain universities. However, it is the assessment center which counts as most students do not have enough experience to assess them on. Therefore a university degree is just an expensive stamp which gets you through the first stage. Afterwards we assess skills. Wouldnt it be a lot fairer if we assess skills to determine someones suitability? Running an assessment center is very expensive (in the financial industry language, it involves a number of associates, VPs directors, Managing directors for each candidate assessed) multiply that by a few hours of their time and the cost per candidate is several thousand pound sterling per candidate. Hence, the prior screening. CredEd would remove the biased prior screening by assessing skills for everyone on an equal basis. Once CredEd has gained credibility it would help candidates get an "assessment" of their skills and therefore could be considered for jobs they otherwise are ignored for
thanks for the link, I was not familiar with it (am not at all into programming myself) however the idea is very relevant, get real challenges in front of people and they can prove their skills. The challenge is to have an AI assessment of relevant skills. How would we assess at large scale creativity? or problem solving or collaboration?
