Many businesses are facing the problems due to having very repetitive, tedious and difficult workflows that increases cost of production and also slows down production. To improve these processes and to bring down the cost of production, business should automate some of the functions to bring down costs. The automation of processes and digitization of repetitive tasks, the cost on paperwork as well as labour can be decreased also by decreasing the human-errors. This will boost the quality, speed and efficiency of leading to better results. To gain all these benefits, businesses should choose right automation tools and AI strategies.
The high degree of artificial intelligence is achieved when a machine mimics cognitive functions of human brain such as problem solving, learning to new things & mastering, logical reasoning, knowledge representation, general & social intelligence, etc. The most powerful abilities of AI includelearning, planning, knowledge, natural language processing perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects.
For deploying these AI technologies, various development platforms are needed to design our system on top of it. The AI platforms include cognitive functions we discussed above and use of expert systems such as machine vision and speech recognition.
All the business may not be capable of developing their own AI systems as due to lack of resources& experience in that field. So, the best way is to outsource the requirements to some AI-experienced company which can provide best and reliable AI services. These companies specialized for developing artificial intelligence systems are called as Artificial Intelligence Service Providers.
This strategy of third-party offering of artificial intelligence resulted to new servicing business known as Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AIaaS). AI as a service allows individuals and companies to experiment with AI for various purposes without large initial investment and very less risk. Experimentation can allow multiple platforms to test different machine learning algorithms.
Different AI service provider platform offers different types of machine learning and AI. These variations can be less or more suited for organization’s AI needs. The artificial intelligence systemscan deliver following services:
- Machine Learning:ML relies on the input dataset provided to ML algorithm.Data must be reliable and good. ML performs classification, extraction and prediction on this data to give cognitive learning capabilities to system.
- Automation: One can save time and resources by automating tasks. Automation caters the capability of performing precise and accurate tasks without any human interaction. Different automation technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) are available to automate the processes.
- Natural Language Processing (NLP): NLP is the most popular application of AI today which allows seamless and intelligent voice interaction between machines and humans. Speech-to-Text systems are evolving through AI and giving more natural, interactive real-time response to the voice conversation. Trends of voice assistant has increased rapidly offering voice-enable help in every product services.
- Cloud Infrastructure: Clouds have made the need of obtaining resources for complex AI applications & machine learning solutions easy and scalable. Another two popular services provided by cloud are Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).
Hence, Artificial intelligence Services has large scope today in almost every field where improvement is needed. This need & popularity of AI emerged into companies developing AI solutions for others, known as artificial intelligence services providers.
