AI comprises of different technologies that can be combined in different ways to sense, comprehend, act and learn (think big data coupled with cloud connectivity and the IOT). What does this mean for a business in practical terms? It means creating greater efficiencies and driving economic growth. Companies can now use machine algorithms to identify trends and insights in vast data sets and make faster decisions that potentially position them to be competitive in real-time. AI is making everything simpler and smarter!
