FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV/CBS) -

For the past few years, artificial intelligence slowly becoming a part of several aspects of people’s everyday lives.

And now, software is now conducting part of the recruiting process for job interviews.

Amber Green sent her resume to Children’s Mercy Hospital six times and got a job only after applying through a service called Hirevue.

"You're now showing your face and showing who you are on a more physical level," Green said.

The pre-recorded interview is guided by a computer program. It gives hypothetical scenarios and questions, records responses and produces a score, based on things like word choice, facial expressions and eye contact.

Along with Children’s Mercy Hospital, Hilton Hotels, Carnival Cruise Lines and Dunkin’ Donuts are already using the program.

"I don't believe it can make all the decisions for us. I think we still have a human element in there but I think it gets us closer to foolproof hiring, if that's ever going to be a thing," said Molly Weaver, Director of Talent Acquisition for Children’s Mercy Hospital.

Top scoring candidates on Hirevue move on to in-person interviews. Hirevue says the process helps to curb racial and gender bias.
