As the pandemic has proven, digital transformation is possible—and at speed. Many more aspects of business operations have moved online or have enabled remote or no-touch access. This evolution has generated another growth spurt of “big data”, from websites, social media, and the Internet of Things (IoT). With new customer behaviour likely to stick after the pandemic and working from home remaining an important factor, novel approaches to decision-making support are an increasingly important consideration for many organisations.
In this context, the recent growth in interest in and focus on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) across all aspects of business in every industry and government raises important questions. How can AI/ML be applied at management levels in support of decision making? What new possibilities or problems does it present? How far and how fast can businesses move to benefit? What are the downsides?
AI, combined with big data, IoT and automation, offer both the threat and the promise of revolutionising all aspects of IT, business and, indeed, society. In this half-day session, Dr Barry Devlin explores what will enable you to take full advantage of emerging AI technology in your decision-making environment. Starting from the familiar worlds of BI and analytics, we position traditional and emerging BI and analytics tools and techniques in the practical application of AI in the business world. Extrapolating from the rapid growth of AI and IoT in the consumer world, we see where and how it will drive business decision making and likely impact IT. Based on new models of decision making at the organisational and personal levels, we examine where to apply augmentation and automation in the roll-out of AI. Finally, we address the ethical, economic and social implications of widespread adoption of artificial intelligence.
