Can marketing afford to ignore Predictive Analytics?

We are naturally curious beings and are so invested in the future and what it holds for us. Perhaps that is why astrology, horoscopes, palm readers, and their ilk continue to thrive. In fact one of the movies which dwelt upon this subject of predictive analytics in the human context was “Minority Report” where pre-cogs – humans with the ability to see the future – are used to stop crime. It is this curiosity of the future and how it can be leveraged in the business context that has led to predictive analytics gaining momentum. In fact in many businesses, it is an integral part of their growth and marketing… Read More

“Okay Google, is Conversational Analytics here to stay?”

“Okay Google! When did the US women’s football team last win the World Cup?” “The US women’s team won the football World Cup in 2015, and have won 4 World Cups overall.” “ Alexa I want to buy the US women’s football championship jersey.” “Here are some jerseys you can buy.” Our online browsing and searches have turned conversational. People everywhere are increasingly using voice-activated technology to get answers to their questions in real-time. Enterprises and businesses have thus realized that the conversation has shifted from “mobile first” or “cloud first” to a “conversation first” landscape. This paradigm shift in Conversational AI – having a conversation with a device-assistant like… Read More

NLP helping organizations make ‘intelligent’ decisions

A decade ago, we couldn’t have dreamt that someday we would be interacting with machines as though they were human. Natural Language Processing (NLP) is changing the way humans interact with machines owing to huge advances in machine learning. NLP tools such as Siri, Google assistant, Cortana, Amazon Alexa and Bixby have shown us that machines can hold a reasonably intelligent conversation with humans. NLP techniques enable machines to detect and identify patterns in human languages in order to carry out tasks such as speech recognition and sentiment analysis. Why is NLP Important? Through NLP, non-programmers are able to obtain useful information from computing systems. From an enterprise’s perspective, NLP… Read More

Why are Data Scientists crucial for AI?

Why is AI powered customer engagement a must now?

  In 2017, Aeromexico launched a customized AI system, a neural network that was built on the foundation of machine learning. At the Facebook’s F8 Global Conference, the company announced that it went from zero to 96% automation of its customer service function and that its AI-powered platform, which learns as it goes by scanning and analyzing previous customer service transcripts, reduced the average customer service resolution time from an average of 16 minutes to just 2 minutes.   I cited the above example to highlight just how important AI has become for customer engagement. The sheer volume of fragmented consumer data that is generated these days often erodes the… Read More

How can Insight firms manage privacy and data security concerns?

  Data is an invaluable commodity for businesses and this is why data security has become their top priority. Many international regulators are holding organizations liable for any privacy or security breaches. The recent Facebook – Cambridge Analytica data leak scandal,  EU slapping a second $11 billion antitrust case on Google and now YouTube being made liable for copyright violating videos – all point towards how rampant data security breaches are and how serious the consequences of such violations can be. For businesses that deal with consumer data like market research firms, the burden of responsibility is huge. With stricter regulations like the GDPR coming into enforcement since May 2018,… Read More

Agile, efficient and affordable: AI powered market research is here to stay

  Anyone who has ever bought a market research report knows how expensive it is. Subscription to the likes of a Gartner, Forrester, McKinsey or Nielsen costs companies tens of thousands of dollars.  And surprisingly for the price companies pay, the data is used disposably, meaning once used it is archived or forgotten and everyone moves on to the next study – and the cycle repeats again. While this worked earlier, today the demands of consumers coupled with the explosion in information and technology is forcing companies to look at insights that are more agile. Making insights and market research companies realize that they need to innovate, add agility and… Read More
