With globalization, the use of artificial intelligence in companies has become an inescapable shift for those who want to stay in the race. These days, AI shows up everywhere in the organization: in factories, warehouses, and even offices. But what can you do concretely to deploy it within your company?
Artificial Intelligence in Office Automation Tools
These days, the introduction of artificial intelligence in office automation tools is a required step. Furthermore, many employees are already using it without knowing it in handling emails, sorting spam, or chatbots. New spreadsheets also come with features that make it possible to correct or automatically complete different fields by referring to those already filled out. There are also machine translation tools for slides and live conversations that are becoming increasingly powerful, as well as—more recently—data analysis features that produce statistics and provide explanations on trends, such as increases or decreases in sales—not to mention document formatting and graphic organization wizards.
Using AI to Analyze Large Volumes of Data
In the legal, technical, and commercial fields, it’s often necessary to conduct searches of numerous documents. Thanks to enhanced or cognitive search, it’s now possible to quickly and automatically extract useful information, analyze the content of images, and find links between different documents without performing a tedious chore.
AI to Promote Collaborative Work
Although a growing number of employees, collaborators, and freelancers are doing their jobs remotely from their home or a coworking space, work has never been so collaborative, thanks in part to the use of artificial intelligence. Collaborative solutions are increasingly integrating AI solutions to increase productivity as well as inclusion. We can now set up a meeting via a wizard, automatically manage agendas, and record the exchanges over the course of the meeting in a summary document, as each participant is recognized when they speak. In addition, people who speak another language or hearing-impaired people can follow the exchanges in real time.
Augmented reality and mixed reality are also used to promote collaborative work. For example, it is now possible to create a representation of a project or building in augmented reality to show it to your colleagues or clients, or to illustrate breakdown issues.
Artificial Intelligence as a Decision-making Tool
Currently, there are virtual assistants that can identify the most qualified collaborators for a specific project and bring them together to work on it successfully. By making it easier to identify the right profiles, AI promotes collaboration. Other tools, especially machine learning, provide accurate forecasts of product sales and turnover, thus perfectly complementing the insight of the sales teams.
Implementing artificial intelligence in your company is now no longer an option, but a necessity. To successfully achieve this, you need to be aware of the importance of data and introduce AI at all levels of the company, from senior managers to employees.
