DHI Group., parent owner of Dice.com announced they have been issued a patent for the taxonomy incorporated in its Dice service, which helps technologist candidates find more relevant jobs and customers find the right technology professionals to quickly fill immediate job openings.
Dice’s taxonomy associates job skill terms with a job skill listed on a candidate’s profile by referencing a glossary of skills, then ranking the relationship between the terms and the actual skills by relevance. These actions are completed automatically by the technology covered in the patent.
“The power of the taxonomy skills mapping, which is the heart of our matching technology, brings incredible efficiency to recruiters sourcing for technologists and technology professionals looking for ideal career opportunities,” said Art Zeile, CEO of DHI Group, Inc., parent company of Dice. “The newly acquired patent validates the proprietary nature of our data model, which DHI has spent a decade creating and perfecting. Our ability to connect the necessary skills for a technology position with a client’s job requirements is unmatched and will only get better in time with further advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and engagement of our products.”Art Zeile
Dice’s taxonomy is a vital piece of IntelliSearch™, the artificial intelligence and machine-learning algorithm used to increase the efficiency for Dice clients in searching for qualified candidates. When a job description is added into a search field, the algorithm identifies technology skills and the relationship between them, effectively matching employers to skilled candidates in seconds. IntelliSearch for jobs matches technologists to ideal opportunities, matching their skills and experience to further their careers.
“IntelliSearch is a key differentiator for Dice, powering our best-in-class matching and personalization tools,” said Mike Marasch, Senior Vice President of Product for Dice. “Our unique ability to bridge semantic differences yields a better match for technologists with jobs and clients with tech talent, increasing conversion rates and engagement rates.”
