UWaterloo, Plum partner to reshape co-op with AI

August 13, 2018

The University of Waterloo has partnered with Plum, a local software company, to reshape its co-operative education programs. The new system will use artificial intelligence and organizational psychology practices to predict the talent and performance of candidates and improve the experience for employers and students. The system will "quantify the student's potential" and match the students to positions that they are most compatible with, according to Andy Pandya of Plum. The new system also aims give students a means to think about and communicate their achievements and talents.
