But… AI is difficult
Artificial Intelligence is seen as a big investment, something risky and difficult to start with. One of the most important reason organizations are hesitant to start with AI is that they do not really know what AI is.
Fortunately, you do not really have to know what AI is. We already use in in our daily lives. Think of Siri, Google Home or those chatbots on several websites and apps.
We believe those devices use AI, but do we really care how they work?
Another reason the organizations are hesitant is the lack of relatable examples. The examples we hear of are usually from the US and China and do not really show the practical side of AI.
AI comes down to about 80% data preparation – translating the business use case into data and asking the right questions. Every company can start with that. The first results probably lead to more questions along the way, but eventually can lead to an accurate forecast, that allows organizations to improve. Even if this improvement is only a percent or two, the return can be huge.
Instead of thinking AI is difficult, focus om what you already know and start small. Sharing concrete, practical, and relatable examples of what AI can do for organizations also helps to make the first into the world of AI.
