Our Cybernetic Overlords

At least two companies are announcing that they have software that can pick potential new employees better than a human HR specialist. Personally I find this easy to believe. I bet they can even tell you when their own software is obsolete and in need of upgrades. Just don't plan on doing any hiring while the upgrades are running.

In related news there is reportedly software that can predict recidivism among prison inmates.Possibly these can be combined to predict how long that new potential star employee the first software picked will remain with the company once he or she gets to understand the corporate culture a little better.
