A Practical Path to AI Podcast Series

The fundamental idea of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not new. A robot butler has been in the public consciousness since the Jetsons first hired Alice or Ironman was first assisted by Jarvis.

What is new, is how Artificial Intelligence is now accessible to the end consumer and business user, and is poised to unleash the next wave of digital disruption. Companies should prepare for it now.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence is the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. AI is a collection of advanced technologies that allows machines to sense, comprehend, act and learn.

Why is Artificial Intelligence Important?

AI is set to transform business in ways we’ve not seen since the Industrial Revolution; fundamentally reinventing how businesses run, compete and thrive. When implemented holistically, these technologies help improve productivity and lower costs, unlocking more creative jobs and creating new growth opportunities.

How Can Artificial Intelligence Help Your Enterprise?

AI can help your organization catalyze innovations, automate tasks and processes, and augment and enhance productivity and engagement. Chatbots and virtual assistants help us ask our phones and home devices questions. Why not bring this into the workplace setting? Digital assistants could help businesses with tasks like daily routines for talent recruitment and utilizing machine learning to determine the next best action for salespeople. You can also bring in natural language processing to allow users to communicate and interact with the assistant in a conversational manner.

A Practical Path to AI

For all enterprises there is a practical path to Artificial Intelligence (AI), but how do you get started? Tune in to our “Practical Path to AI” podcast series where we’re providing a basis for understanding the role of various technologies in problem-solving and decision-making and provide listeners with the tools they need to evaluate, build and compare different technologies. We have 10 podcasts we've recorded to discuss AI and how it relates to applications, mobile, integration, process management, digital experience, security and more! 

Here are just a few highlights:

  • Many of us have likely talked to a robot already without even knowing it. Interesting and intriguing all at the same time. We'll dive deep into Conversational AI and Chatbots, to give you the 101 on how Chatbots are transforming the customer experience.
  • Interest in taking advantage of robotic process automation as well as a variety of intelligent systems, such as artificial intelligence or machine learning, has exploded over the past few years. We’ll discuss how the technologies in question will have a dramatic impact on the future of knowledge work.
  • Computational capability has grown exponentially over the years and with that comes more data. There's now more data to analyze than ever before. Overall there is huge growth in both the volume and variety of data captured in any form. We’ll talk about what new capabilities are needed to corral and tame this data.
