The future of Intelligent Automation
December 10th 2020
Artificial intelligence (AI) is already part of our daily life and it’s now used by most of the large Italian and International companies part of BTO network. The foundation on which artificial intelligence rests, the ability to replicate and overcome the way humans perceive and react to the outside world, is quickly becoming the cornerstone of innovation. Thanks to the Machine Learning (ML) that recognizes the patterns in the data and allows to make predictions, artificial intelligence can add a concrete value to the business:
1) Allowing a broader understanding of the abundance of available data; 2) Relying on predictions that automate overly complex or routine tasks.
We hear more and more about applications of AI, such as autonomous cars and drones to support industrial processes, but also simple voice assistants like Siri, Alexa and Cortana, with whom we have all experienced different types of interaction.
