Discuss about the Employment Under Machines for Nepotism.
Human machine interactions refer to a multidisciplinary discipline that deals with the study of communication between the humans and the machines (Booth, 2014).
According to some surveys, there are many candidates who would prefer being interviewed by a computer instead of a human being. According to studies, employees under the age group of 40 would like their work to be judged by an unbiased computer program algorithm rather than having a human being as a judge. The people of this age group consider the computer programs to be more ethical and trustworthy than the leaders and managers of the concern. According to some of the subjects of the conducted survey, the new generation has an enormous amount of trust in the computer algorithms rather than in the living human beings. The younger generation argue that they trust technology to navigate them properly around the city or to find them life-partners in case of online dating sites. Thus, interestingly, they find it rational enough to trust the algorithms for judging their employment outcomes (Hrreporter.com, 2017).
According to the people on whom the survey was conducted, human beings unlike machines discriminate employees based on a number of issues like nepotism and sexism. In a workplace where the employers are humans there arises matters relating to power play and ego. It is interesting to note in the reported article that the employees are elated with the thought of having a workplace devoid of biases of these kinds. They are happier to find out that there may be a situation where they would be judged only on the basis of the job they deliver.
