Science

Cognitive neuroscience, AI and data science form the basis for our predictive selection algorithm.

The tasks in our assessment are developed from research experiments founded on psychological, cognitive neuroscience and computational neuroscience principles of human behaviour. We have carefully replicated these experiments in our app-like interface, ensuring they maintain their scientific rigour.

Scientific research has shown that behavioural variations among individuals completing these tasks map to ‘real-world’ observable differences in personality traits and cognitive ability. By capturing authentic behaviours, we can objectively distinguish between candidates on a wide range of traits.

These differences in brain functioning can be measured by performing straightforward tasks. We have simply adapted historically validated neuroscience tasks to the 21st century, and placed them within an app-like interface to optimise the assessment experience. Our in-house science and research teams work to ensure that this interface does not impede the scientific rigour of the assessments.
