Organization Productivity and Performance With AI
Organization Productivity and Performance With AI - Effective use of Artificial Intelligence
Many organizations are moving into the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to support strategic impact, customer relations and operational performance, what should your organization do? Organizations today apply AI capabilities to a wide variety of uses especially in improving decision making and operational flow. Improving decision making translates directly to improved organization performance. The increased use of analytic techniques, data bases and algorithmic techniques means that managers need understanding of the value and effort relating to AI.
How many managers and professionals today are capable of recognizing, understanding and using AI techniques for best value? Identifying, organizing, integrating and delivering AI capabilities to useful points in the organization is a key issue today. The good news is that organizations are already using some of the techniques without knowing they are part of AI.
The hype today is around AI capabilities like deep learning, facial recognition, driverless cars and other sophisticated applications. The reality is these are expensive and do not directly benefit the operation of an organization. With many machine learning and neural net algorithms how do you know which one to use? Which one provides insight that you can use now? Which should you be looking at for the future? Many AI algorithms are simple, reliable, easy to use and have great value to the typical organization. Algorithms like affinity analysis for customer behavior, correlation matrices for preferences and semantic keyword analysis for attitudes are used daily to assess service and product opportunities from customer and citizen behavior. AI enables rapid response to changing market conditions, waves of culture shock and shifting markets. Managers and professionals should prepare for the coming changes in analytics.
