AI: How Technological Innovation Has Already Transformed the Business

By Vanesa Zlatanova

In the fast-paced world of modern business, staying ahead of the curve is essential for success. Over the past few decades, artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as one of the technological innovations as a game-changer. From streamlining operations to revolutionizing customer experiences, AI has transformed the business landscape in profound ways.

But before reaching the stage that we are today, let's take a step back and look at the history.  It should be remembered that there are also a few famous AI failures in the last couple of years. For example, one of the first AI tools was Google Photos in 2015. Google's image recognition algorithms faced a blow when AI labelled photos of people from certain ethnic groups as "gorillas". Apple also released an AI tool – MAPS that had a lot of inaccurate information that led people to different spots.  In 2016 Microsoft Tay was a tool whose purpose was to learn from interacting with users of the platform. Within 24 hours of its release, he began issuing a barrage of racist, sexist and other offensive tweets. In the HR area and more specifically in recruitment, Amazon created an AI Recruitment Tool in 2018 that should build a job candidate resume reviewer that uses natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML). It subsequently had to be dropped because it showed a bias towards women.

Thanks to these first attempts and failures, the a need to improve the technology to be able to streamline operations, enhance decision-making and personalizing customer experiences.

One of the most significant impacts of AI on businesses is its ability to streamline operations. Through automation and data analysis, AI systems can optimise processes, reduce inefficiencies, and cut costs. For example, in manufacturing, AI-powered robots can handle repetitive tasks with speed and precision, leading to increased productivity and higher-quality outputs.

AI systems are also revolutionising decision-making processes within businesses. By analyzing data from various sources, including customer interactions, market trends, and financial performance, AI algorithms can provide valuable insights to help executives make informed decisions. Of course, it must be taken into account what data the AI tool is analyzing.

Another area where AI has made a significant impact is in personalizing customer experiences. Through advanced analytics and machine learning, businesses can gather and analyze vast amounts of customer data to gain a deep understanding of individual preferences, behaviours, and needs. This enables the employees of a company to focus on delivering highly and more personalized service.

Artificial intelligence has already transformed and indeed revolutionized the business landscape in numerous ways. As AI continues to evolve and become more sophisticated, its impact on businesses is only expected to grow. To remain competitive in today's rapidly changing world, businesses must embrace AI as a strategic tool for innovation and growth. However, amidst these transformations, it's crucial to recognize that human resources remain the most potent asset of any business. It's essential to acknowledge that the expertise, creativity, and adaptability of human employees are irreplaceable. While AI can optimize operations and provide valuable insights, it's human ingenuity that drives innovation and fosters meaningful connections with customers.

In today's rapidly changing world, businesses must strike a balance between leveraging AI technologies and nurturing their human talent. By embracing AI as a strategic tool for innovation and growth while also investing in the development and well-being of their employees, businesses can unlock new opportunities, drive efficiencies, and deliver superior value to customers in ways that honor the unique strengths of both AI and human resources.
