THE BOTTOM LINE
While artificial intelligence (AI) is still in a vague infancy with unclear value as far as enterprise software is concerned, the combination of growing data resources and machine learning capabilities looks to have measurable financial benefit soon. Recently, several companies have announced new AI products that have the “potential” to provide radical business insights. Although the benefits of many aspects of AI are grossly inflated, there are certain industries that stand to gain something from one branch of AI: machine learning. Understanding how machine learning works is essential to seeing all the way to an end goal of realizing profits.
