| | AUGUST 20188THOUGHT LEADERSHIPARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE MEANS BUSINESS By Jagdish Mitra, Chief Strategy & Marketing officer, Tech MahindraHeadquartered in Mumbai, Tech Mahindra is one of world's largest technology companies offering a wide array of solutions in the areas of information technology, networking technology solutions, and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), mainly to the telecommunications industry.Today, while some industries are leveraging AI (Artifical Intelligence) capabilities to provide end-to-end solutions by automating business intelli-gence and analytics, others are us-ing it to simply enhance efficiency of business processes. Then, there are virtual assistants like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa that are using natural language process-ing (NLP) to interpret voice com-mands and generate responses ac-cordingly. Emotional Intelligence today is embedded in the realm of AI.Another interesting application of AI is autonomous driving, which has made the idea of driverless cars a reality. AI technology is making it possible for human drivers to take a backseat, while the autonomous cars compute large amount of data, consider thousands of scenarios, and take real-world decisions in a very short span of time and with high precision. Driverless cars are here to completely disrupt the way we imagine travel, giving us more time to work in the car, watch a movie or even talk on phone without having to loathe those hours of being stuck in traffic.
