Artificial intelligence is not new. The term can be traced all the way back to the 1950s. Various applications have been developed in the decades since, but artificial intelligence is only really taking off now. Why, after all these years? In essence, AI's recent momentum was made possible by evolutions in hardware. Data storage and processing have never been more efficient. New artificial intelligence applications are being developed at an incredible pace, with the processing of large amounts of data and computer-intensive calculations no longer presenting a problem. Is your company ready to seize this opportunity now that the time is right?
Artificial IntelligenceThe core of innovation
Juggling big data
Without AI, there would be no smart computer games. The phenomenon is now also entering the business world primarily thanks to the arrival of the Internet of Things (IoT). Communication between devices, systems, databases and the like keeps getting better and more frequent. The result is a tsunami of data that humans can no longer process. The purpose of AI technology, then, is to juggle that big data and extract valuable information from it.
Human analysis becomes superfluous
An AI system is so smart that it can work out by itself what the possible applications are for the data it is analyzing. Pre-programming what needs to be done with the data is therefore no longer necessary or even possible. The system creates its own algorithms for this via self-learning mechanisms. As a result, human beings are becoming superfluous when it comes to analyzing data.
Is Al of interest to you?
Artificial intelligence is set to replace certain human interactions. Nevertheless, it has been proven that the combination of man and machine will prevail. This is also the key to the development of applications. By adapting the process, the application must allow both man and machine to generate maximum added value. This is not consistent with merely replacing old technology with new technology, but implies structural adjustments to processes. Realdolmen guides its customers through this process, from ideation workshops to the development of a proof of concept (POC), down to the final result and production.
Applying AI to your own practices
AI helps us to adapt more quickly, accurately and safely in our daily activities. It is set to have an impact on the automotive, communication, health care and manufacturing industries and many more. Realdolmen uses co-creation and an ecosystem-based approach to actively evaluate and implement these new opportunities and help you and your customers to move forward. In doing so, we zoom in on two specific applications.
AI enables you to build autonomous and self-correcting Smart Machines based on the huge amount of data generated by the IoT. Smart Machines are usually tiny devices – like sensors or wearables – with a single specific function. Sometimes, they are also apps that function autonomously. Their major benefit is that they can make incredibly rapid, accurate decisions without any human intervention because their use of AI allows them to process all the data extremely quickly.
Computers learn how to 'see' with Computer Vision
The science of teaching computers how to see. In recent years, the computing power available for enabling deep-learning algorithms such as convolutional neural networks to work efficiently has accelerated developments in Computer Vision. Computers can analyze images (photos and videos) more accurately than humans. Applications in the medical world are already extremely successful, and the possibility of using cameras in support of (and to replace) visual inspections is of great value.
The power of the IoT lies in extracting, collecting and using valuable data. Sensors handle the extraction and collection and actuators make it possible to control the systems remotely from a business application.
