Very often terms such as Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Robotics, IoT, and Cloud are thrown around in leadership sessions as “silver bullets” or “easy buttons” that provide a competitive advantage.
While there is reason for the sizzle behind the hype, it’s not what we should focus on.
We should be focusing on Impact.
The cornerstone of Artificial Intelligence is Machine Learning, where historical data (which ever organisation has) is used to teach sophisticated algorithm or machines to solve everyday problems. Providing businesses with insights into what the future will hold. Sounds much like science fiction you tell me? Well not so much as you would think, these “machines” are readily available to the public in tools such as Scikit-learn, Tensorflow, jupyter notebook, Python and R.
