Artificial Intelligence AI
Business operations are more digital than ever, thanks to AI, IoT, and cloud computing. Artificial intelligence (AI)is the future, with limitless potential and benefits for organizations of all sizes. Today, businesses are finding new ways to leverageAI and increase their competitive advantage.
What is AI?
Artificial intelligence is the ability to process information and solve problems without an organic brain. Like humans, AI uses perception, reasoning, and learning to perform tasks and improve over time. This AI attribute has numerous use cases across the business environment. As an innovative entrepreneur, you can adopt AI solutions to automate business processes.
Types and Subsets of Artificial Intelligence
There are three types of AI systems:Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI), Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), and Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI). They are classified by their hardware, ability to imitate human behaviors, and applications in the real world.Also known as weak AI, ANI is goal-oriented and the only type of AI that exists today. It is programmed to perform a single task, such as autopiloting an airplane,self-driving cars, and virtual assistance like Siri. Currently, AGI and ASI are concepts based on experts’ consensus about AI of the future. AGI is known as Strong AI that enables conscious, self-aware machines driven by emotions like intelligent beings.
AI consists of two subsets: machine learning and deep learning. Machine learning uses Supervised, Unsupervised, and Reinforcement algorithms to enable learning from experiences and problem-solving. With ML-based algorithms, you can train software to react to specific datasets. Deep learning is a subset of AI that enables machines to filter information like our brains and learn from examples. In the business environment, you can use DL computer models to analyze tons of data, predict outcomes, and classify information.
How Businesses Leverage the Power of AI
Using AI tools, small and medium companies can optimize operations, boost efficiency, and cut costs. You can use AI to extract insights in business data stored in the cloudto drive growth. So, how do you leverage AI forbusiness?
1. Automate product quality assurance
Artificial intelligence is synonymous with automation. Whether it’s manufacturing, agriculture, or pharmaceuticals, you cannot compromise product quality. But manual inspections are costly, time-consuming, and prone to errors. You can use AI-enabled software and smart cameras with machine vision to automate product inspections. These solutions use machine learning to detect defects in real-time, with high precision. So, you can correct the flaws and deliver high-quality products to your customers.
2. Improve service delivery
As an SMB owner, you can use AI-powered bots to deliver the best customer service consistently and cost-effectively. Bots maximize the availability of customer services. For example, a chatbot on your website to enable 24/7 interaction and engagement with customers. Youcan also integrate a bot on your app or site to schedule appointments automatically. Chatbots with machine learning canhelp your business improve service delivery.
3. Streamline HR processes
HR professionals waste too much time on mundane tasks, such as screening resumes. Yet, the labor shortage is the biggest challenge facing SMBs. Use AI tools to automate candidate screening, communications, interviews, performance analysis, and more. Automating HR withAI eliminates bias from hiring processes.
4. Boost cybersecurity
The last thing you need is your trade secrets or customers' information in the wrong hands. You can use AI-enabled cybersecurity solutions to implement data security best practices company-wide.AI cybersecurity software continually scans business systems for unusual activityand stops cyberattacks. It is proactive rather than reactive. So, you can anticipate and tackle threats instead of waiting to deal with data breaches and losses.
5. Optimize marketing campaigns
Marketing is all about targeting potential customers with customized content. AI can help SMBs understand their customers,crucial for targeted marketing. WithAI-powered CRM software, you can analyze customers’ behavioral patterns andbuild successful marketing campaigns. SMBs can also use AI-enabled CRMs to improve customer relationships.
AI is the future and a must-have for organizationsof all sizes. With AI-powered solutions, you can improve product quality, service delivery, marketing efforts, and cybersecurity. This disruptive technology can level the field, allowing SMBs to compete with giants across all sectors.
