Our Perspective on AI & Automation
The purpose of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is to increase productivity and reduce costs. It is not about automating intelligence, it is about automating specific tasks.
Successful use of AI requires to first identify clearly the tasks and processes to automate. This means finding tasks where automation has business value and is technically feasible.
Machine learning is one automation technique, but there are many others. We help our clients select the most appropriate technique(s) based on their goals. AI and automation must be viewed as one module of a larger IT solution.
