In the business and technical worlds these days, creating value and competitive advantage are among the top goals. Artificial intelligence (AI) can help. This interesting topic came to us from DATAVERSITY in their article, “Artificial Intelligence Has its Foundation in Good Data.”

Most companies are ready and willing to take on AI in their data management. Large and small organizations can benefit from AI in their computing power.

Real-world applications for AI are emerging in areas such as boosting the productivity of dispersed workforces. However, early adopters are still struggling to determine the return on initial AI investments. Businesses want to hear less about the sci-fi scenarios of machines taking over mankind and more about the practical ways that AI can be applied to deliver a significant return on investment. Many AI-based projects still stall out post-pilot, or close down because costs are too high with little benefits.

Meeting expectations is the big challenge for AI. Optimizing data for building AI models is the key to get meaningful response information.
