On average, a company loses 5% of its revenues to employee financial fraud each year, with the annual median loss at $140,000 and over 20% of companies reporting losses of $1 million or more. The key to keeping a lid on this fraud is identifying the fraud before it takes too much of a bite out of the company’s bottom line, or even further, to put processes and controls in place that automatically audits, monitors, and accepts or rejects transactions that don’t fit an recognized pattern.</p> <p><a href="https://www.cognilytica.com/2018/04/25/ai-today-podcast-34-interview-with-anant-kale-appzen-preventing-employee-expense-fraud-with-ai/" rel="nofollow">Read more ...</a></p>

However, for many companies, fully substituting autonomous agents for their human counterparts is not technically possible at the moment and also may not be feasible or practical.</p> <p><a href="https://www.cognilytica.com/2018/01/18/ai-today-podcast-020-augmented-intelligence/" rel="nofollow">Read more ...</a></p>

Something super hot, of course. In this case, we’re talking about the combination of Internet of Things (IoT), which has been an area of significant investment and adoption with Artificial Intelligence (AI) which is gathering more and more steam as time progresses. What’s interesting is that AI is uniquely suited for gathering critical information from the vast quantities of data generated by the millions (billions?) of connected devices on the Internet.</p> <p><a href="https://www.cognilytica.com/2017/12/06/ai-today-podcast-014-ai-iot-interview-rashmi-misra-microsoft/" rel="nofollow">Read more ...</a></p>

Much of the brain is devoted to generating, sensing, processing, and understanding speech and communications in its various forms. When humans were building their first civilizations we were also expanding the spoken and written form of communication. We didn’t start communication with swipes and types, in fact for most of human history we did not have technology, so it’s no surprise that what we want from our interactions with machines is what we want with interactions with people: natural conversation.</p> <p><a href="https://www.cognilytica.com/2017/11/22/ai-today-podcast-012-chatbots-useful/" rel="nofollow">Read more ...</a></p>

The more an AI system approaches the abilities of a human, with all the intelligence, emotion, broad applicability of knowledge, the more “strong” it is. On the other hand the more narrow in scope, specific to a particular application a particular AI system is, the more “weak” it is in comparison.</p> <p><a href="https://www.cognilytica.com/2017/10/25/ai-today-podcast-008-weak-strong-ai-terms-matter/" rel="nofollow">Read more ...</a></p>
