MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 18, 2021 -- Eightfold AI, the provider of the Talent Intelligence Platform™, continues its rapid growth, innovation, and customer expansion across every segment of its business. Eightfold AI's most recent fiscal year was highlighted by numerous landmark accomplishments, capped by the unveiling of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development's Hoosier Talent Network and an infusion of new investment, a $125M Series D funding round led by General Catalyst. The company works with customers across 110 countries, 19 industries, and 16 languages. Other recent accomplishments include:
Customer and Partner Expansion:

Industry-leading Product Innovation:
As a leading provider of AI-based HR offerings, Eightfold AI continues to push established boundaries in both product development and practical usage. Recent developments include:
- The U.S. patent and trademark office recently notified Eightfold that it had examined and allowed for issuance a patent on Eightfold's invention titled "system, method, and computer program for automatically predicting the job candidates most likely to be hired and successful in a job." The invention relates generally to machine learning in human resource applications, and more specifically to using machine learning to assist HR teams in evaluating candidate and job profiles.
- Eightfold AI was recently chosen over 50 competing solutions by the U.S. Department of Labor as a next-generation platform that could help military service members transitioning into the civilian workforce find their perfect employer match. Eightfold.ai was selected as the Grand Prize recipient of the Veterans' Employment Challenge designed to improve and modernize the Transition Assistance Program. During a final evaluation conducted by service members, instructors, and employers, the Eightfold.ai solution achieved a 96 percent approval rating, far exceeding the required 80 percent success threshold.
- Eightfold announced the Career Hub, a central destination where every employee can find new opportunities, projects, mentors, learning opportunities, and more within their organization. Personalized and available any time, Career Hub allows remote workforces to continue their career progression at their preferred pace.
