Army recruiters ‘use AI to speed up checks on candidates’ amid growing concerns over the armed forces’ staffing crisis

Artificial intelligence is being used by the Army to speed up recruitment amid fears of the depleted number of military personnel.

Government contractor Capita uses AI to analyse and summarise medical documents to ensure a candidate is suitable to enlist.

The documents are uploaded by a GP into the system and the technology then converts the information so that emails, documents, voice messages and handwritten notes are in one format for recruiters to analyse.

It comes as the Army is suffering from a staffing crisis over strict rules about tattoos, hay fever and asthma.

Capita previously said the rules should be loosened up, especially because would-be recruits are being ‘attracted elsewhere’ as the time taken to be accepted was so long that they were finding other jobs in the meantime.

Last week, a leaked document also revealed that the Army wants to relax security checks it runs on overseas recruits in an effort to solve the growing staffing crisis.
