Sponsored by Businesswire

Mya Systems, the leading conversational AI platform for hiring teams, today announced that its conversational AI recruiter, Mya, has been selected as the winner of the “Best Transactional Bot Solution” from AI Breakthrough. AI Breakthrough is a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) market today.

Leveraging the knowledge from the combined industry experience of its team, as well as the millions of conversations Mya has had with candidates, the company is redefining the traditional hiring model for many of the largest enterprises and staffing agencies globally. Inefficiencies in the existing recruitment model means, more often than not, top talent doesn’t end up in the best possible job role. Mya’s mission is to create a simple and powerful solution where job seekers get hired faster, and hiring teams get the most qualified candidates by eliminating friction in the recruiting process. The result is a far more efficient job market powered by AI.

To achieve this, Mya’s natural language understanding capabilities utilize a recurrent neural network architecture and contextualized word embeddings to create an AI recruiting bot with high degree of HR intelligence, and with robust and natural conversational ability. The platform is easy to set up and use, and Mya’s automated outreach and communication with job candidates across the end-to-end recruiting process enables recruiters to focus 100% of their time on converting the most qualified and available candidates for their open jobs.

“We are thrilled to receive this 2019 AI Breakthrough Award in recognition of the hard work our team has put in to perfect the technology behind our conversational AI assistant, Mya. We created Mya to bring recruiters a platform that automates dynamic, two-way conversations and helps them build strong and lasting relationships with candidates, unlike any other AI solution in the market,” said Eyal Grayevsky, CEO and Co-Founder of Mya Systems. “This award marks another step towards our mission to create a far more efficient job market. For the first time, hiring teams can scale proactive and timely communication across their entire talent ecosystem and eliminate friction at every stage of the recruitment process. The result is higher quality hires, faster, and at a lower cost while delivering the best candidate experience.”

The mission of the AI Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of AI and machine learning related categories, including AI platforms, Deep Learning, Smart Robotics, Business Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, industry specific AI applications and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,500 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

“Mya helps build trust and confidence with candidates, recruiters, and hiring managers through open-ended, natural and dynamic conversations,” said James Johnson, managing director of AI Breakthrough. “With advanced Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning techniques to handle complex interactions and deliver near human level performance on key recruitment tasks, Mya’s capabilities certainly display an impressive level of AI technical abilities. We are proud to recognize the Mya team on their well-deserved AI Breakthrough award win!”

Mya has engaged in tens of millions of distinct user interactions and learns from every interaction via a highly scalable data pipeline and annotation process, as well as the valuable candidate insights it gains from unstructured data. Mya speaks over 80 languages, supports thousands of job profiles, and is already deployed across 25 countries in the Americas, EMEA, and APAC. The result is the world’s most advanced AI recruiting virtual assistant, trusted every day by some of the world’s largest organizations and most recognizable brands.
