Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

They are some of the great buzzwords of the digital age. However, they are far less daunting than they seem.

Basically, Artificial intelligence is setting a computer a task and giving it the means to achieve it. For example, if we asked a computer to give us all the possible routes for a newspaper boy to deliver 100 papers, it would crash as the number of options would take it light-years to process. However, if we give the computer an algorithm and all the relevant data, it will produce the optimal route in a short timeframe.

If this process can be delivered consistently and more cost-effectively than existing systems, then why not use it? Especially, if the program can use live data to adapt as the traffic, weather and customers change?

It won’t be perfect, the paper boy knows an unmapped shortcut, but if the improvement gain is substantial enough then it creates value. The important thing is recognising that this is a recommendation that has the ability for human beings to enhance and improve it rather than a definitive solution (as the makers of chatbots and editorial algorithms have painfully discovered).

At Miralis Data we develop applications using AI and machine learning to help solve your business and organisational challenges. We do it in a benevolent way and with a human-centered approach to delivering outcomes that understands the full implications of change.
