Most of us working in business intelligence and data science spend a lot of time creating data models, reports and beautiful dashboards. Even though the models are great and reports look fancy, the true value is in your customers actively using it. How often do you find that nobody is actually running the report?
This hurts, but it also makes sense. People get so much information during a day, they really need to be selective. So any important information should pop out of your report…Continue

Summary: Too many solutions. We are at an inflection point where too many vendors are offering too many solutions for moving our AI/ML models to production. The very real risk is duplication of effort, fragmentation of our data science resources, and incurring unintended new technical debt as we bind ourselves to platforms that have hidden assumptions or limitations in how that approach problems.

Summary: Based on a McKinsey study we reported that 47% of companies had at least one AI/ML implementation in place. Looking back at the data and the dominance of RPA as the most widely reported instance makes us think that the number is probably significantly lower.
Summary: Digital Decisioning Platforms is a new segment identified by Forrester that marries Business Process Automation, Business Rules Management, and Advanced Analytics. For platform developers it’s a new way to slice the market. For users it eases integration of predictive models into the production environment.

For people working in Artificial Intelligence, the term “Human-in-the-Loop” is familiar i.e. a human in the process to validate and improve the AI. There are many situations where it applies, as many as there are AI applications. However. there are still some distinct different ways it can be deployed even within the same application.
Contact Center Example
Let’s take for example the automation of a contact center. A…Continue

Much of the recent AI revolution has been focused on automation through big data and/or sensors and feedback into neural networks. The resulting applications are highly valuable to businesses and consumers. They improve quality of life by optimizing labor and resources. However, these applications fall short when it comes to handling human reasoning. Much of the rationale behind the operation of these systems are implicitly embedded in the data.…Continue
