More than ever, we have to ask ourselves, “What’s up with the new artificial intelligence hype?” Is it only a brief technological hype or is it something more substantial that actually promises an economic and social impact on us in the coming years?
Many doubts regarding the potential of artificial intelligence technologies are remnants from AI research reaching back to the 50s and 60s. Ambitious predictions about the performance capabilities of intelligent computers were quickly disappointed and AI soon fell into a state of hibernation. In the last 4 years, AI technologies have experienced dramatic developments and have become an integral element in our daily lives. In our digitized world, high tech products and AI always come together. With AI, a good product becomes a “smart” product. Artificial intelligence has finally become an integral part in the world of business. With big data and the increasing level of machine networking via digital sensors, artificial intelligence is the driving force behind cross-industry digitalization of business processes and models. Massive amounts of data generation and cloud computing demand AI-based systems that collect, connect and automatically analyze data to better maintain equipment, improve service or add value to businesses.
Empolis applies innovative AI technologies to its solutions, enabling businesses to leverage, transform and adapt their business processes to new situations, on-premise or in the Cloud as SaaS/PaaS solutions.
