In the webinar, James spoke about artificial intelligence (AI) and intelligent automation (IA) technologies, which are rapidly becoming democratised and putting business leaders in the driving seat.
“Tools have been gradually been democratised to the point where businesses can take advantage of them,” James said.
“There is a proliferation of no-code and low-code tools that have taken these capabilities around AI away from the academic lab to the IT lab and data scientists, and now into the hands of business people. This matters because when technical people and business people work together to develop a solution, stuff can get lost in translation."
James discussed common misconceptions that arise when businesses embark on machine learning projects: many businesses do not realise the full extent of the challenge involved in creating successful pipelines that allow for transparent automation of processes.
“Machine learning technology is an analysis technology, not an automation technology… It still requires a human on the end of the process to apply judgement.”
James also spoke of new intelligent automation tools that are allowing businesses to do three things every business wants: increase efficiency, improve customer experiences and create new revenue streams, all while remaining transparent.
