Enterprise AI and the Paradox of Accuracy

Oct 26, 2018 |

As more organizations begin to experiment with AI in their internal operations, an interesting paradox is developing. The best way to think about the state of AI is that it behaves as a very powerful “mimic.” If you show it example data or model an existing process, AI will be able to perform at massive scale, delivering dramatically increased throughput and reduced processing times. Read more…
