Artificial Intelligence. Do you know what AI can do for your business? - ITMAGINATION

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, Neural Networks … most of know these words. They're banded about as the'next big things' that promise to revolutionize the way you do business. This might well be true, but there are still many people that aren't aware of exactly what these technologies are, how they're already impacting our lives and how they have the potential to transform the way we do business. We know Siri and Alexa, the personal assistants by Apple (Siri) and Amazon (Alexa) to help us out in an increasing number of ways. Most of us know that these are AI-powered assistants, but few of us know about the thousands of algorithms, neural networks, random forests and gradient boosting that help make these assistants what they are and contribute to their growing sophistication and usefulness. Julia Medvid, Senior Client Partner at ITMAGINATION and Łukasz Dylewski, Head of Data Science, have extensive experience in introducing ITMAGINATION clients to AI and helping them to benefit from this game-changing technology.


Elevate Your Enterprise's Chatbot Capabilities To Reach Greater Efficiencies

#artificialintelligence

It's no surprise that the banks are leaders when it comes to implementing intelligent digital solutions, with 41% of banks reporting the use of chatbots. But are they making the best use of this technology? Using chatbots for simple tasks such as resetting passwords may be a way for businesses to start to understand artificial intelligence (AI) and its idiosyncrasies. However, it's hardly going to bring the 25% efficiency increase by 2025 for customer service organizations that embed AI in their multichannel engagement platform, as predicted in Garner's 2019 "Market Guide for Virtual Customer Assistants" report. In order to achieve this, enterprises need to take a look at the wider digital transformation strategy and how chatbots will integrate into it.

Predictions 2020: AI Aspirations Will Both Sizzle And Simmer

#artificialintelligence

Confident CDAOs and CIOs will come to the rescue to break data logjams. Data scientists often struggle to acquire, transform, and prepare the data they need to start a machine-learning (ML) project. Data lakes, data engineers, and data prep tools have helped, but the real problem is sourcing data from a complex portfolio of applications and convincing various data gatekeepers to play along. In 2020, senior executives like chief data and analytics officers (CDAOs) and CIOs who are serious about AI will come to the rescue, with a top-down mandate to get around the data access problem. Firms with chief data officers (CDOs) are already about 1.5 times more likely to use AI, ML, and/or deep learning for their insights initiatives than those without CDOs.


Study Suggests Robots Are More Persuasive When They Pretend To Be Human

#artificialintelligence

Advances in artificial intelligence have created bots and machines that can potentially pass as humans if they interact with people exclusively through a digital medium. Recently, a team of computer science researchers have studied how robots/machines and humans interact when the humans believe that the robots are also human. As reported by ScienceDaily, the results of the study found that people find robots/chatbots more persuasive when they believe the bots are human. Talal Rahwan, the associate professor of Computer Science at NYU Abu Dhabi, has recently led a study that examined how robots and humans interact with each other. The results of the experiment were published in Nature Machine Intelligence in a report called Transparency-Efficiency Tradeoff in Human-Machine Cooperation.

See how institutions are integrating new technology to create smarter campuses. I've practically grown up in the data, application, information, and tech industry. For over 18 years, I've worked with both small organizations and major corporations like Gartner and Nelnet. With Nelnet Campus Commerce, I'm proud to help our partners consider the impact future technology will have on higher education. If you still remember the rotary phone, you're very different from today's "digital natives."


Messaging as a Platform: The State of Human to Machine Communications

#artificialintelligence

Conversational user experiences, in the form of chatbots and voice interfaces, are overtaking many of the traditional ways in which we interact with machines. Since the rise of computers, human-machine interfaces typically had some form of Graphical User Interface (GUI) which enabled direct (if limited) interaction with devices and their programs, for instance via software installs, mobile apps, and web-based applications such as Software as a Service (SaaS). No matter how "beautiful" the respective interface, this GUI is now more and more replaced by a Conversational User Interface (CUI). Other still evolving interface styles are less text- and voice-driven, and therefore limit the messaging element to certain basic functions such as taking photos with the blink of an eye (smart glasses or smart cameras such as Blincam can do that today) but will eventually allow for richer interaction gestures (see project Soli). When coupled with an input-output feedback loop, so-called bionic lenses also hold a promising future.
