A common misconception about artificial intelligence is that AI pulls its solutions out of thin air.
In truth, AI agents are not magicians. Instead, they are more like data-dependent analysts that will be effectively useless unless you give them quality data.
This is something that all business owners need to understand before jumping on the AI train.
Is Your Business Fit for AI?
You have likely seen blogs and LinkedIn posts touting all of the wonderful things that artificial intelligence can do.
From automating customer outreach to streamlining manufacturing solutions (one example being predictive maintenance, which stops machinery breakdowns before they occur), it may seem like AI can fulfill an endless number of tasks for you.
That is certainly true.
However, if you want AI to do these things, then you need to run an internal check on your operations to figure out, first, if your business is producing the data needed to make these predictions. Second, you need to figure out if enough data is made consistently to justify giving it to AI.
Most Businesses Produce Enough Data for AI
The good news is that most businesses do produce the requisite data for plenty of AI applications, just by virtue of operating the business. Customer records makes it easy to predict customer churn, and your online inventory that you have entered into your website provides the knowledge that a chatbot will offer to your online customers with questions about your inventory.
Giving AI Context Through Your Data
The more context that you can give AI through your company’s data, the better.
What is great about AI is that it can also gather the data that it needs to provide context for its work.
For instance, you may have an issue with customer outreach. Without AI, you normally need to guess about the customer demographics that you want to reach.
This is much like imagining a target, drawing it, and then throwing darts at it.
An AI tool, like the persona modeling platform that is offered by Findability Sciences, will actually find the target customers that you are looking to reach.
This is done by crawling through both your customer records, to find key categories such as who are the big, frequent spenders in your company, and through publicly available data from your customers. In the latter case, the AI typically analyzes posts made on social media and other Internet resources.
From there, connections can be made to find out who is willing to spend the most on your business, and what their tastes are. Beyond tastes in products, other important cognitive insights are found. Favorite colors, political beliefs, and more are divined by the artificial intelligence platform.
AI, then, creates important context about just who is buying your business’ products or services. This contextual data can then be repurposed in the context of marketing, customer outreach, and other important strategies for growing your business.
