'The highlight of the interview process is it is robotic.'Kindly note this is a representational image. Perhaps for the first time in the country, instead of following the traditional practice of meeting the candidates in person, a bank used an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based tool on college campuses while recruiting probationary officers. FedRecruit is the name of the HR tool which the Aluva, Kerala-based Federal Bank used in the hiring process. "As of now, I would say robots can never be a substitute for human beings. Going ahead, perhaps AI evolves in such a way that robots may find out the entire potential of the candidate much better than a human being," Ajith Kumar K K, left, below, Federal Bank's human resources head, tells Rediff.com's Shobha Warrier.

Not far from the airport in Austin, Texas, is an old dairy farm that is being repurposed into a technology campus. Sridhar Vembu-led Zoho Corp, a Software as a Service company based out of Chennai, is building an office complex on 375 acres southeast of the town, in what could be a symbol of expanding Indian technology footprint in the West, particularly in the United States. As towns go, Austin is an alluring mix. Its throbbing college scene rolls on without a bump into quaint tourism, with the occasional laidback Texan strolling by colourful shopfronts overflowing with quirky gifts. In a place known to support local businesses — its tagline ‘Keep Austin Weird’ is written on public walls and digital posters – large technology companies are scrambling to set up work bases, and Indian companies are just beginning to spot the advantage of moving in. “Austin gives the vibe Bay Area did in the 1990s, or maybe the 1980s,” Zoho’s chief evangelist … [Read more...] about Indian tech firms are looking beyond traditional hubs to set up shop in the US
