ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE – CHANGING OUR LIVES.
Hirsch’s Umhlanga’s monthly Business Networking morning that was held on the last day of July saw a variety of business owners and corporate employees coming together to network, exchange ideas and listen to Network Configuration’s directors, Iain Emerson and Wayne Erradu give a thorough rundown on the latest trends available for businesses in the IT sector.
Once a month they hold IT workshops for their clients, and interested parties and provide proactive technology support and management that empowers people and businesses to achieve more and remove the frustrations around technology.
Iain, who is the CEO of the company, gave some sound advice on the importance of keeping up with the new technology on the market, focusing on one application, in particular, Office 365. Apparently, once you subscribe to office 365, you get over 290 applications to go with it.
On the subject of Artificial Intelligence, Netconfig’s Technical Director, Wayne Erradu explained that it is the science of creating intelligent computer programs and machines in an attempt to mimic human levels of intelligence. “Artificial intelligence is used in virtually all businesses; in fact, you likely interact with it in some capacity on a daily basis.” Explained Wayne.
“AI-equipped voice assistants are now powerful tools deeply integrated across entire ecosystems of channels and devices to provide an almost human-like virtual assistant experience. As AI technology becomes more sophisticated, virtual assistants will probably learn to take on even more complex tasks and work alongside their human colleagues.” Said Wayne.
