Abstract: Due to the tsunami of data available to organizations today, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are increasingly important to businesses seeking competitive advantage through digital transformation. That’s why over 75% of enterprises prioritize AI and ML over other IT initiatives.
But before AI/ML can contribute to enterprise-level transformation, organizations must first address the problems with the integrity of the data driving AI/ML outcomes. The truth is, companies need trusted data, not just big data. According to Data Trends survey, 47% of newly created data has at least one critical error. That’s why any discussion about AI/ML is also a discussion about data integrity.
There are many steps toward trusted data. Breaking down data silos and integrating that data, ensuring data quality with accurate and inclusive data, and adding third-party data for critical context to the organization’s internal data. AI is increasingly becoming important for the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives as well. Assessing and automating the ESG data supply chain, making recommendations for data enrichment such as with wildfire data, demographics data, or with datasets for underrepresented groups are important for use cases in insurance, financial services, for non-profits, and more importantly help organizations remove bias from their data. Taken together, these steps — data integration, data quality and governance, location intelligence, and data enrichment — ensure access to data with maximum accuracy, consistency, and context driving trusted business insights derived from AI/ML.
