> Autistic people have problems with eye contact
On the other hand there is absolutely no warranty they would fare better with your standard HR drone ("Who's that shifty fellow who can't look me in the eyes? I don't like him.").
Anyway, while I'm skeptical about the whole computer interview idea too, intellectual honesty forces me to admit that recruitment has always been biased and unfair: A good-looking, likeable, self-confident person will always win over an ordinary-looking, shy, introverted person. The fact the former might turn out to be an unreliable airhead while the latter might prove to be a dedicated, tireless, intelligent worker doesn't show in a job interview (no matter the voodoo ceremonies HR might stage), and that is a problem both for the interviewer and the interviewee.
- Not that machine learning will fix this. I know I would feel very uncomfortable speaking to a stupid laptop: I'm not a politician, I don't make my living sweet-talking my way out of (or into) things.
