AI Meets IRM

“A genius is a person who has two great ideas”

J. Bronowski, Ascent Of Man.

Such is the case when IRM unites with Artificial Intelligence.

AI data mining magically discovers golden nuggets of bottom-line profits from complex masses of data. AI expert system knowledge base rules fire into action on the basis of correctly arranged and aligned data model structures. AI neural networks apply their ability to learn and uncover rewarding patterns from large amounts of properly established data. AI genetic algorithms model biological principles of heredity, environment and evolution to interactively evolve innovative and insightful solutions from large quantities of data. And AI natural language paradigms aspire to converse by translating raw data into human communication.

There is a burgeoning frontier of opportunities to engage AI as a powerful ally of IRM. Understand their application and go for the gold.
