AI and machine learning

80% of data scientists’ time is spent on processing data, rather than developing or deploying artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. This doesn’t just cost time and money, it also adds up to missed opportunities.

Our take on AI in 60 seconds

Many businesses have over-inflated expectations of what AI can deliver right now. In reality, the resources required to execute a successful project – whether in time, data, or management – are often underestimated. Not surprisingly, fewer than 10% of the firms we speak to have actually deployed an AI solution.

Data is central to the success of AI projects. Ultimately, your solution is only as good as the data you have and how well it is ‘trained’. To provide a solid foundation for your AI plans, data must:

  • Cover real breadth and depth
  • Derive from a trusted source
  • Be well-structured
  • Be easily accessible

When your business has high-quality data and builds a partnership with an experienced operator, you can rapidly harness the undoubted promise of AI. In the future, this technology could transform predictive analytics for business performance management, real-time transaction monitoring and fraud detection.

Key takeaways

Here are the essentials

Get back to basics

AI is only as good as the data you use and how it's trained. Build strong foundations with high-quality, well-structured data.

Work in new ways

Successful AI projects require fresh approaches, working across siloes and creating new roles such as data wrangling and annotation.

Leverage cloud technology

Tech is becoming easily accessible via cloud environments, meaning you can instantly access the data and tools you need to experiment and innovate.
