Erik Buchanan leads Artificial Intelligence for LinkedIn's biggest business, Talent Solutions. After building Connectifier, the recruiting industry's favorite product for finding qualified candidates, Erik and the Connectifier team joined forces with LinkedIn in 2016 to improve its core business, LinkedIn Recruiter. While at LinkedIn, Erik developed AI Academy, a program to educate and empower LinkedIn's entire workforce to learn, discuss, and use AI technologies to solve LinkedIn members' most challenging problems. AI Academy has experienced overwhelming demand from all across the LinkedIn workforce, and the results are remarkable: new AI-powered features launched, more effective communication about AI topics, and better domain-specific applications of AI best practices.
