    How AI Is Enhancing Big Data Initiatives

    By Dennis McCafferty
 

Enterprise leaders and professionals overwhelmingly view artificial intelligence as a productivity boost—and even a jobs creator. These views are especially true when AI is used to advance big data efforts, according to a recent survey from Narrative Science. The resulting report, "State of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in the Enterprise," indicates that most of the companies surveyed are using big data and/or AI-powered solutions. Enterprises that combine both are measurably better at turning data into information that solves problems. Among other uses, organizations turn to AI for voice recognition and response, machine learning and decision support. They also depend on these advancements to drive toward the story (analysis and insight) behind the vast volumes of big data numbers. "By implementing AI solutions, businesses are capable of turning their strategy conversations from data-driven to story-driven decision making," according to the report. "Where raw data is challenging and time-consuming, AI-powered solutions can step in to provide analysis and quickly communicate findings to decision-makers." A total of 200 CEOs, chief innovation officers, data scientists, managers, directors, and other business leaders and professionals took part in the research.
