Widespread advancement in machine learning (ML), computer vision, deep learning, and natural language processing (NLP) have made it easier than ever to bake an AI algorithm layer into software or cloud platform. For businesses, practical AI applications can manifest in multiple ways depending on organizational needs and the business intelligence (BI) insights derived from the data collected. Enterprises can employ AI for everything from mining social data to driving engagement in customer relationship management (CRM).
