A Human uses 10% of their brain at a time-Here are 3 ways AI can act as your business's other 90%

The Brain vs AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is inspired by the way the human brain processes information, draws conclusions, and codifies instincts and experience into learning. While human brains are great at certain activities such as parallel processing and sorting information, they can only use 1-16% of their brain power at a time. This is due to the overwhelming use of energy it requires. Thanks to advancement in technology and AI and Augmented Analytics, we are no longer held by the constraints of human capabilities. According to a report by Gartner, AI will create more than 2.6 trillion dollars of business value by 2021 and about 6.2 billion hours of worker productivity. As such, it will be impossible for investors to even think of investing in a company that doesn’t incorporate this kind of intelligence in its operations.
