#artificialintelligence

Evolution and decision-making are not immediately linked in our minds; however, as it turns out, algorithms inspired by biological evolution are the key to augmenting decision-making in a wide variety of business use-cases. But let's start with the problem statement. My team and I are continually engaged in conversations with enterprises from various industries about their expectations for artificial intelligence. Often, we learn they're seeking better ways to model the data that flows through their systems. These questions are all about using AI to produce more insights.

"We decided we could transform this industry by completely dissolving the concept of AB testing, by thinking of the website no longer being a static property, but a dynamic property that is always evolving based on the way it interacts with your audience.
