Artificial intelligence (AI) is steadily making its way into the workplace. AI offers a wide range of applications in business, from workflow management to decision making. It also opens up new business possibilities towards a company. Many organizations are now using Artificial Intelligence to support their internal business processes. The usage of AI in a corporation appears to be part of a trend to incorporate cutting-edge technology into every business operation. 

According to research, AI does not necessarily work best on its own. AI technologies are excellent at driving or even replacing lower-level, repetitive jobs, but when humans and machines collaborate, businesses frequently produce the best results and give much more benefit towards organizations. We live in an AI era where if any algorithm begins to perform at a human level, it is quickly adopted by others. However, if the implementation of Ai  is scaled up significantly, economies of scale will be achieved, lowering the entire AI implementation cost, and developing a business strategy that combines both AI and human resource. 

1. Building Business Improvements Towards Digital Transformation

The integration of digital technology into all elements of a business, radically changing how we operate and give value to clients, is known as digital transformation. It's also a cultural shift that necessitates firms constantly challenging the status quo, experimenting, and learning to accept failure. 

The data result from a digital transformation survey for generating products and services in a digital environment conducted by a partnership of Corporate Executives and PTC, demonstrating that the impact of digital transformation may help companies improve their bottom lines. Digital transformation may boost operational efficiency by 40%, improve product quality by 26%, and introduce new revenue sources by 21%.  ​​Digital transformation also comes to the top of global manufacturers' strategic objectives; 92% are at some stage of their digital transformation journey. Digital projects are altering physical processes across the value chain.

Building business improvements by exploiting data at the enterprise level is the goal of digital transformation. To make improvements,  all data sources must be connected, and a smarter business must be built. Engaging stakeholders and customers and enhancing operational effectiveness, such as increasing productivity, minimizing risk, better forecasting, building precision, agility, and reducing errors, are all important aspects of a successful digital transformation.

2. Increase Business Efficiency

Technology brings various impacts in human life, including in the business process. While the adoption of technology resulted in the loss of many jobs, it also resulted in the creation of new jobs and responsibilities.

Data from McKinsey shows that the results of the 2021 poll show that AI use is continuing to rise steadily: AI has been adopted in at least one function by 56 percent of all respondents, up from 50 percent in 2020. Service operations, product and service development, and marketing and sales are the most typical corporate functions where AI is used.

One of the implementations of AI towards business efficiency is by using computer vision. A study undertaken by Ibn Tofail university. They use a facial expression classification to anticipate client decision-making by identifying varied grins, frowns, eyebrow rises, and more. They used a database with 213 photos of 10 Japanese female model’s facial expressions. The findings of this research suggest that this data can be used to anticipate a customer's product choices. According to the experts, this technology might be used in virtual stores by using eye gaze detection to track their customers' gaze and determine which product drew their interest. 

Artificial Intelligence has been widely used and adopted in recent years across a wide range of industries to help eliminate inefficient operations. The use of AI raises several benefits in business efficiencies including simplifying corporate structure that help to align companies structure and strategy, develop a management review system as part of company’s evaluation process, and assist in developing Key Performance Indicators (KPI) as a performance measurement method. 

3. Drive Business Outcomes

Integration between AI components includes clever algorithms that are essentially human-like, engineering that integrates all data pipelines seamlessly, and design that helps in putting everything together on the cloud to make those real-time decisions. 

According to Width.ai, artificial intelligence has a substantial impact on decision-making, according to more than half of firm leaders (54 percent). There are numerous ways that AI can help a company's bottom line. It all relies on the sort of business, the company's size, and the culture of the organization. Automation of the most monotonous work, greater income through a recommender system, more educated and data-driven decision making, and a better understanding of customer demands and satisfaction are all part of the process. 

Advanced AI applications have the potential to change the way businesses operate. It helps businesses make sense of huge amounts of organized and unstructured data, enhance business decisions, and achieve better results. The new level of data analytics for the goal of increasing business outcomes is undoubtedly being driven by Artificial Intelligence. Corporate data repositories are producing unprecedented levels of value for businesses.

4. Reducing Human Error

Human error is one of the most common sources of data breaches around the world, but its seeming inevitability makes it particularly dangerous. Bringing more data, more computing and more methodologies is the key to reducing human error. 

In 2014, the Heartbleed bug created panic when it was reported that a simple coding error could let hackers access computers. Wonga's data breach, which occurred recently, harmed 245,000 UK consumers. Better cyber security and the elimination of coding faults may have averted this. This problem doesn't end there: according to recent data, hacking attacks on UK businesses have cost investors 42 billion euro, with the UK being the victim of dozens of severe cyber attacks every month. By the minute, software becomes more complicated and susceptible, and we can no longer rely on humans to analyze millions of lines of code. The more complexity we add, the more difficult it is for people to test. This shows that human error can be fatal in a company's business processes. By using AI this problem can be solved with progressive detection of the program code to prevent errors during the operation of the program code.

From Smartsheet survey mentions that 66% respondent agree that using AI is an important factor in eliminating data mistakes from collecting, copying, and cleaning data by employees. The use of AI includes intelligent document processing technologies that use machine learning and optical character recognition. 

Artificial Intelligence has the ability to understand, learn, automate, and emulate intelligent human behavior, its help to revolutionize process instrument trust and remove human and process failures. AI can predict specific instruments and human behavior and lead directly to actions and avoid human errors such as improving process safety, measured qualities, and quantities of the delivery product.

5. Boost Organizational Effectiveness

According to IDC study, inefficient processes cost businesses 20-30 percent of their annual income. The average employee spends 4 to 10 hours each week on computer chores that are repetitious (up to 350 hours per year). Frequently, these computer duties have nothing to do with their principal work role.

It is critical to invest in a talent mix of artificial intelligence, engineering, and machine learning that can assist generate results in order to move an organizational culture towards effectiveness. AI improves overall organizational effectiveness with: boost productivity by avoiding time-consuming and repetitive tasks, enhance employee effectiveness by augmenting employee intelligence, and automate common client requests to improve business products and services.

The advantages that are listed before are quite general. The benefits of AI are limitless and depend on the use case as well as the side being looked at. AI can increase revenue by identifying and maximizing sales opportunities, predict product demand, classify customers' market, detect fraudulent credit card transactions, malware detection, review documents, conduct research, and so many advantages using artificial intelligence development services.

Whatever our motivation for exploring AI, it has the ability to transform the way we do business. Artificial intelligence is still a very new technology and rapidly changing and also provides some unexpected problems. Apart from looking at the benefits, we also need to remain wise in managing AI in the future.
