Putting Artificial Intelligence to Work for Your Business

As Artificial Intelligence Business Solutions become more accessible, smaller and mid-sized enterprises will benefit from newfound opportunities to capture greater efficiency and analysis. With barriers to entry falling, CIOs and product managers have incredible tools at their fingertips; tools that, just a few years ago, would have been cost-prohibitive and cumbersome. Even smaller-scale AI deployments can have a huge impact on an organization’s ability to:

 

  • Engage more authentically with customers
  • Reduce manual labor for employees
  • Fuel higher productivity and profits

 

A few examples illustrate the powerful impact AI solutions deliver, even when end users may not realize advanced cognitive processes are operating behind the scenes. From the simple to sophisticated, this sampling shows the many ways AI can benefit organizations of every size and sector.

 

Fly through Forms

Something as straightforward as a date can cause significant slowdowns in document-intensive scenarios. Let’s say you need job applicants to upload a copy of their undergraduate diplomas. To validate their date of graduation, in times past someone on the receiving end would have to open and view every single file (ignoring the fancy calligraphy as they hunt).

 

With AI, an automatic document scan recognizes date formats – whether it’s May 25, 2001; 05/25/01; or even the twenty-fifth day of May in the year two thousand and one. Over time, the system gets better and faster at searching any document and applying logic, only requiring human interaction in unusual circumstances. This can be extended to any other input data in the document which can be used for automatic verification or validation.

 

Take Text Analysis Further

A recent story on NPR Morning Edition, reported on sophisticated plagiarism schemes on college campuses, in which students are purchasing custom-written term papers. Plagiarism also runs rampant in the business arena. To keep up with consumer demands for fresh news and insights, marketers face temptation to borrow concepts—and even verbatim content—from other sources.

 

Sophisticated AI tools go well beyond comparing documents for common words or phrases; they actually analyze the personality of the content. Using dozens of parameters, they take into consideration a full scope of tone, style, writing patterns, and language choice to attribute content. Companies can add a powerful weapon in their intellectual property protection arsenal. On a less serious side, this technology engine is behind an Intelliswift-developed application that recommends books based on a user’s tweets.

 

Tap into Recommendation Engines

For e-commerce retailers, “Returns can be a disease — aggressively attacking profit margins, gutting conversion rates, and ultimately threatening your business,” according to an article in Shopify Plus. Intelliswift has built a recommendation engine that collates all the information associated with a specific product online, such as descriptions, consumer reviews, price points, and more.

 

 

At a glance, the system evaluates a retailer’s product listing to its peers’, exposing gaps in consumer information that may lead to higher return rates. Providers plug into a constantly updated and easy-to-use system that has a demonstrable bottom-line impact. As return rates drop, the system quickly pays for itself.
