The Analytic Moment - Episode 4 - Four steps to Embedded AI

In this 8 minute video we talk about how to move your organization towards embedded AI - this is the holy grail of AI - unless it is integrated into your operations, you won’t get the maximum return.

Step 3 is where you start to predict certain elements and components of your organization, now that you have a robust data set and situational awareness. Only at this point, can you truly start down the world of predictions.

Finally, these solutions need to be embedded into your operations. In order to make it easy to consume these newly developed insights, then need to be moved to a “next best action”. This is where the magic happens, combining analytic insight and operational know-how to produce a set of prescriptive actions.
