Artificial Intelligence.

Companies interested in capturing job interviews on video can now deploy artificial intelligence (AI) to help analyze qualities like body language or facial expression. However, such a trend could potentially see law firms and corporate legal attorneys racing to stay on top of yet another disparate set of state-level laws pertaining to the use of technology.

Illinois, for example, is the first state to formally establish legal parameters around the use of AI in video interviews. Passed in August and scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2020, the Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act addresses responsibilities companies hold with regards to consent, transparency and the destruction of the original video as well as all subsequent copies.

The law could set the table for a patchwork of similar laws to come—and that may not be a scenario that companies or their legal teams are eager to embrace.
