What is Retorio?

Retorio is a video recruiter that fuses artificial intelligence and machine learning with scientific findings from psychology and organizational research. Even from short application videos Retorio reliably detects the communication behavior and important personality traits of the applicant. Talents can be recognized more effectively and reliably and compared with different job profiles.

What’s the science behind Retorio?

Retorio is a spin-off of Technical University of Munich, Germany. Retorio’s analysis is based on the universally accepted, advanced psychological model of personality traits, the Big 5 model. This model describes an individual’s personality in terms of 5 dimensions: (1) openness, (2) extraversion, (3) conscientiousness, (4) agreeableness, and (5) neuroticism. In a workplace context observer ratings have an incremental predictive validity over self-reporting. Accordingly, Retorio's AI is trained to analyze the Big 5 according to visible behavior rather than self-estimations. In other words, Retorio does not measure how persons think they are, it measures how they come across in terms of their personality.

What problem does Retorio solve?

HR processes (such as hiring) involve important decisions that are strongly influenced by subconscious factors. The great importance of gut feelings on the part of decision-makers often leads to biases and unequal treatment. Overworked HR departments often have little time to screen CVs or to prepare for and follow up on their interviews and have to rely on their intuition in their accelerated workday. Accordingly, it is inevitable that many applicants merely can upload a CV and will not get a fair chance to make a personal impression. With Retorio, all candidates have a chance to present themselves and to show their personality on video. Retorio's AI ensures fair treatment and removes biases from the recruitment process.

How does Retorio prevent bias?

We ensure that Retorio does not discriminate against people based on their ethnicity, age, gender, religion or culture. We do so by checking the estimates in our datasets for possible systematic biases (e.g., discrimination). "Algorithm-based differentiations become discriminations in particular if they constitute an unjustified disadvantage of persons characterized by protected characteristics (in particular age, gender, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, or disability)" (Source: German Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency) Retorio ensures that only factors that are within the applicant's control are included in the results. We regularly test our models against large, scientifically sound datasets, such as UCLA's Fairface dataset, which contains approximately 100,000 individuals from different cultures, age groups, etc. Our results show that Retorio assesses applicants regardless of their skin color, gender, or age. We publish our results transparently and work with leading research institutions to validate our findings.
