AI is Different Because Scales With Data
Cloud Commerce Consulting CEO, Michael Zammuto wrote recently on his CIO.com column about the impact of data challenges on IT initiatives. Mike argues that many promising IT initiatives stall because they depend upon data being cleaned, enriched or combined as a precursor to success. BI and analytics projects are particularly dependent upon good data. Even with the best traditional tools and techniques, the process of preparing data for these projects does not scale well, often negatively.
This means trouble for IT chiefs and business sponsors alike. Mike argues that because machine learning algorithms can learn to categorize and clean data better as you as it processes more data, this means that AI is the only approach that scales data projects well.
