When you think of AI (Artificial Intelligence) or machine learning, you might be thinking ‘Skynet!'. But the reality is, the human race is investing a lot of money and energy into creating super advanced machines that learn and help us to make informed, risk-free decisions based on patterns, usage and data.
We're always on the lookout to bring the latest and greatest to the table for our clients. The recent advances in AI have started to become a reality, with machine learning now starting to roll out throughout a large range of technology and digital platforms.
Machine learning or AI can dramatically improve the performance of our websites, ensuring that we're reaching the right audiences and content is being analysed to see how effective it is to our customers.
So what exactly is AI?
AI is a rather simple notion. It is intelligence performed by a machine as opposed to natural intelligence which is carried out by humans. AI enables machines to undertake tasks that would have previously had to be carried out by human beings. Over time, machines will be able to undertake more jobs that humans do not particularly wish to undertake, however there is always a concern that AI may make lots of jobs obsolete.
Such jobs undertaken by a machine are already evident in self-service checkouts and customer support ‘chat-bots'.
What we are also witnessing on the web, is another form of AI entitled ‘machine learning' which is based on algorithms. This means when software undertakes particular tasks, it can learn from this and base future decision making on the knowledge it has obtained from previous experience and change accordingly. Clever huh?
AI is a hot topic. Now let's delve into a few of our favourite AI and machine learning tools that we are currently learning here at Scott Pearson Design to improve our clients' websites. This in turn will drive more leads, improve our client's sales messages and protect their website...
