The jobs matching service was created in response to the unprecedented level of unemployment facing industries across the United States

Spotted: Designed to help assuage the huge rise in unemployment caused by the global health pandemic, machine learning experts have created the Eightfold Talent Exchange jobs marketplace. Built to rapidly match newly unemployed workers with urgent job openings, the platform screens millions of candidates in seconds. Available for businesses in the United States, the artificial intelligence assessment analyses a broad set of criteria, including location, personal potential and experience.

Introduced in partnership with The Food Industry Association, the talent exchange platform allows companies to collaborate across industries. By ranking potential as well as skills, the platform makes it easy for employers to find a broad range of candidates. For individuals, the Talent Exchange provides links to roles that may be extremely suitable yet would otherwise have flown under the radar due to differences in job titles and role descriptions.

With everybody finding new ways of working and living that don’t involve travelling, the Earth’s ecosystems are renewing in ways that haven’t been seen in decades. Solutions spotted by Springwise that help reduce carbon emissions, like this new sustainable waste management process and this AI-powered smartphone orthodontic service, are important components in the continuation of such regeneration.
