I have a question for all of you. I guess I can’t help myself.
I know this question probably doesn’t apply to everyone, but I’m curious about what it would look like in a business context. A typical scenario might involve a business deciding it wants to make a decision about a specific process or product and then deciding to do so using a specific AI system.
For example, an airline company might use an AI to schedule the flight it wants to board for a specific date and time. Or a company might use an AI to schedule the purchase of a product for a specific date and time.
In the business world, the most common AI system is probably a decision support system. A lot of these systems are able to reason about a variety of things, and some of them even have the ability to predict outcomes. But for the most part, they are used to help us make decisions. We use decision support systems a lot when we shop for furniture. We use them a lot when we buy clothes and shoes and so on.
Some of these systems are more complicated than others. An eis might run through a decision support system to determine which products to buy and when, but it wouldn’t have any control over the results. And yes, it would have to make all of these decisions, even if one or two of them would be the most important decisions of the day.
The eis has no idea what day it is. It might know what day it is, but it doesn’t have any information on that day. It might be able to get an accurate location, but it wouldn’t have any knowledge of that.
That doesnt sound like a good business decision. And if we are to assume that an eis will be involved in making the buying decisions, it couldnt make them. It would need to have a very good idea of what day it is, and what it will need to do to get there. It would need to know if there was a storm or if there will be a storm. It would need to know if there was a fire, or if there is a fire. And so on.
