Today, making a business or IT decision requires considering more information and contextual impact than ever before. The need for speed with increasing complexity has opened up the opportunity for technical assistance from Cognitive AI. This post will look into three of these factors and how cognitive powers can be applied to assist decision makers.
In the near future, Cognitive AI will assist decision makers, allowing them to get to their desired business outcomes faster than ever before.
Assisting Knowledge Intense Decisions
Knowledge workers and high level professionals can benefit from an AI assist. AI can search, read, understand, and categorize various sources of unstructured data such as documents, voice, and video faster than any human can. Teams of researchers can’t even keep up with AI, especially when it comes to dealing with emerging new levels and sources of information. Wouldn’t you want your most trusted experts assisted with the latest information worldwide? If so, AI can help.
Assisting Algorithmic Intense Decisions
Today, great decisions can be made by having the right set of algorithms applied in the the proper sequence to come up with optimal decisions. Analytics or poly-analytics can be further leverage by using cognitive assists to decide on new combinations and sequences replacing the human trial and error application of filters and algorithms. Predictive algorithms can be enhanced by machine learning and cognitive AI as a side benefit. Wouldn’t you want a suggestion on what analytics to use? If so, AI can help.
Assisting Situation Intense Decisions
AI can consider assisting the decision maker by considering all the contexts that could be affected by a decision while simultaneously gathering additional information on the impact of a decision or a series of decisions strung together over time. This is a difficult task for most of us. Wouldn’t you want an understanding of the impact of a decision on all of the contexts it might affect? If so, AI can help.
We need to move the needle on decisions by collaborating with AI / Bots as well as other people. The day of isolated decisions is drawing to a close. Decision makers can enhance their expertise with the speed and complexity that AI can attain. Why not leverage AI as a collaborator in your decisions?
