What is AI?
Artificial intelligence (AI for short) is a broad category encompassing many technologies. These technologies work together to enable machines to comprehend, learn and act with “human-like” levels of intelligence.
Technologies such as Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing are all elements of the AI landscape.
There are many common AI interactions that we experience in our daily lives, such as:
- Digital Assistants – online assistance with bank / customer services
- Virtual Assistants – Amazon Alexa / Apple Siri
- Personalized content recommendations – on popular streaming platforms
- Navigation apps to optimize routes – based on real-time traffic data.
Why is AI important?
AI helps to deliver new capabilities into applications that support business process workflows. Such as those encountered in finance, human resources, sales, customer service, and procurement.
As a business you may look to improve worker productivity, detect fraudulent transactions, or increase sales, and AI can help with all of these.
These AI capabilities improve workflows by automating tasks and generating insights to make better decisions.
Many of the best AI products for businesses aren’t products at all. They are features and functions integrated into missioncritical applications, such as enterprise resourceplanning (ERP), logistics, accounting, or human resources management.
