Artificial intelligence technology is a scientific and technological project that is currently highly sought after. The application of artificial intelligence technology to human resource management can provide strong technical support for the development of enterprises. In today's new era of continuous development of information and intelligence, simple and repetitive work is increasingly replaced by intelligent robots. The extensive use of artificial intelligence has greatly improved production efficiency and management efficiency. Artificial intelligence technology brings both opportunities and challenges to human resource management and development of enterprises. Opportunities mainly include: reducing the cost of human resource management; improving the efficiency and quality of human resource management; and promoting the transformation of human resource management. The challenges include: impact on low-end jobs; increase equipment maintenance cost; urgently need a large number of highly qualified professionals who understand the core technology of artificial intelligence; the traditional human resource management model is affected; Put forward brand-new requirement to the ability structure of employee. Therefore, enterprises should scientifically and rationally apply artificial intelligence technology to the human resource management of enterprises, to promote the further flattening of organizational structure, to improve the human resource management capability and management efficiency of enterprises, and enable enterprises to develop and improve steadily.
