Maintain the human touch
We developed Tengai's two-way interactive dialogue to be both fair and exciting to ensure every applicant has a better candidate experience. The 20-minute long AI interview can be done from anywhere, at any time, and is an opportunity for candidates to add information to their application and show more of their personality.
Below we explain how the avatar can communicate, and understand the candidates during the interview.
Illusion of life
Tengai has human-like qualities and exercises “human” cues, like nodding, blinking, and listening. This makes job seekers feel safe and comfortable, while also being engaging. The avatar is designed to be both gender and race neutral, to be more inclusive.
Natural language understanding (NLU)
Our AI uses NLU which gives it the ability to understand and interpret human language as it is spoken. The bi-directional conversation is possible through our NLU that we constantly tweak to pick up nuances in language depending on demographic. Saying "Yes" and "Aaarg" (if you're a pirate) is equally valid, one is just more common than the other.
Keeping eye contact
To take away any chance of possible discrimination based on appearance, we do not use facial recognition software. What our AI uses is facial tracking software, which enhances its human-like ability to keep eye contact but does not register what the interviewee looks like or their surroundings.

An effective AI recruiting assistant
Our AI is interactive in its nature and uses Natural Language Understanding (NLU) to create a human-like conversation and to give personalized feedback to every applicant. The interactive aspect of our AI recruiting avatar is what creates a fun candidate experience. But to create a bias-free assessment, candidates' answers are always processed through a scientifically proven framework that ensures that only the quality of the answers is taken into account.
