What is Applied AI?
Like mentioned before, there are several levels of AI, from Weak A.I to Strong A.I and everything in between. Strong, Skynet AI-level threats are still years and decades away, so looking at Applied A.I, otherwise known as AAI, Narrow AI or Weak AI, is what will affect businesses and modern life the most in the near future.
AAI does not try to replicate human cognitive abilities, but is much more specialized. Simply put AAI is software that equals or exceeds human effectiveness or efficiency for specific tasks. It’s what Google Search, Amazon’s “We think you’ll like this”-lists and Facebook’s tailored fake news feeds are made of.
It is also our core AI focus for the AutoThink initiative, as understanding and using AAI the right way can make a world of difference for a world that can be surprisingly indifferent.
We believe that applied AI businesses will outperform their markets because AI will enable them to provide superior service levels in terms of delivery, availability, accuracy, convenience, engagement, cost and brand. Moreover, their applied AI leadership will create new business advantages and opportunities.
