Get Caught Up with the Artificial Intelligence Basics
Artificial Intelligence may be the next big thing but according to CMO.com, only 15% of enterprises are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) right now.
For many organizations, AI still seems untouchable, conjuring up images of complex sci-fi scenarios. But, in reality, it is surprisingly straightforward to implement and to use in day-to-day business operations.
KMWorld recently held a webinar with Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder, Deep Analysis, and Christopher Wynder, product marketing, OpenText, who discussed how to incorporate AI into day-to-day information management practices, practical applications of AI and best practices for a successful implementation, and more.
Pelz-Sharpe outlined several guidelines to consider when approaching AI for the business:
- Your understanding of your processes, operations and requirements are key to AI success
- You do need some fundamental understanding of the difference between different AI tools and approaches to select the right one for your needs
- You do not need to understand the math behind the algorithms
- You do need a simple to use, implement and manage AI tool
Augmenting existing technologies and processes with machine learning is the first step, Pelz-Sharpe explained.Machine Learning & AI may be highly complex under the covers but are in fact surprisingly straightforward to implement. ML learns over time - it improves not degrades (like traditional systems).
A simple targeted start can be effective and up and running quickly - but its also the foundation for future expansion and growth.
Wynder recommended OpenText’s AI-augmented capture as a solution that can help businesses that are struggling to implement AI.
The solution offers:
- Sort based on classification
- Text extraction for use in other systems
- Image clean-up
- Optical Character Recognition
- Index creation
- Capture Workflow
- Machine learning for classification
- Machine learning for workflow
- Handwriting recognition
