The IDB is an important driver of artificial intelligence as a tool to address challenges in the labor markets in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). As part of the IDB’s fAIr LAC initiative studies, they recently published an interesting report on how to utilize AI for labor intermediation in public employment services (PES). This technical paper provides an overview of key aspects considered by PES when deciding to adopt AI for their operations, as well as discussing the benefits and risks of implementing AI-based solutions for PES.
JANZZ is excited to share that its project ParaEmpleo – a semantic job matching platform realized in collaboration with Paraguay’s Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Security (MTESS) – is described as a “success story in incorporating AI”. It is so far the only project of its kind in LAC, and JANZZ.technology is eager to continue implementing solutions for PES that use AI for social good, generating better social services and giving people more perspective.
