To quote from the article: "People are more open with automated tools because they believe computers don’t judge and that they’re more ethical, studies show. A study, released in March by Vancouver, Canada-based market research firm Intensions Consulting found that 26% of Canadian adults believed an unbiased computer program would be more trustworthy and ethical than their workplace leaders and mangers. That number was even higher with younger adults — those aged 20 to 39 —at 31%. The study also found that 26% of Canadians would rather be screened, hired and have their job performance assessed by an unbiased computer program."
