(AI and) Machine Learning for Business Intelligence

What can AI tell you about your business in order to make it run better?  As long as you have the data behind your decisions and the results, the newest AI tools can help anyone tease out the reasons for failure and the secrets to success.  AI doesn’t always have the data or reasoning to tell us “Why?” – but it now makes it easy to analyze the trends of the past, offer advice for the future and, best of all, warn us in a timely fashion when “the rules” for success might be changing.


Please join us as we show how the current generation of AI tools dramatically lowers the requirements bar for obtaining valuable results.  We will start by using the Microsoft Azure Machine Leaning Studio to quickly analyze two real-life business and showing how much value can be obtained from even the free versions of current tools used by ordinary users.  We will then cover some of the more advanced tools, such as those provided by DataRobot and others, and show you why you no longer need data engineers and other expensive specialists in order to start obtaining valuable results. 


AI and Business:  The Past, Present and Future

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not some novel new “magic” that you must pay extravagant sums in order to it into your business if you wish to survive.  It is merely the latest iteration of “Operations Research” that has existed and improved business processes since before you were born.  AI is “miraculous” only when you don’t realize that the tremendous societal infrastructure that enables it is exactly the same as the YouTube videos which now allows any savvy teenager to perform car repair, house maintenance or even medical research – and when you don’t realize how dangerously stupid or biased it can be.

AI has the advantages, costs and limitations trade-offs as anything else.  Any given instance should be able to be easily explained to anyone with a high school education.  So please join us as we review the past, present and future of AI in terms that anyone can understand.
