Artificial intelligence has now become commonplace. AI is programming to mimic human behavior. It is a pretty broad brush which includes endless solutions. AI has been around for a long time but has been riding the wave of rapid growth with no end in sight. Some of this can be attributed to not having enough resource, replacing human resource to complete tasks to reduce cost, providing a solution focused on results and data integrity, accomplishing tasks that improve deliverables, and providing solutions that may not be feasible with existing resource skills and availability. We are seeing AI implemented across all industries. Whether it be used for data analytics or providing a solution for automating common tasks, we have all interacted with and have been impacted by AI solutions. IBM has embraced AI with a significant kickstart through the infamous Watson Jeopardy event. Check out Watson on IBM i and Web Query to see some of the ways IBM i is embracing AI.
