Some of our best inspiration for cutting edge technologies comes from nature. Aircrafts were inspired from birds, the helical motion of falling maple seeds inspired drones, even the Japanese bullet trains were streamlined by observing kingfishers. So, it’s no surprise that Artificial Intelligence (AI) takes inspiration from the most complex super computer on earth – the human brain.
Why do we need a more human-like computing system?
We have supercomputers today with insanely high computing capacities, capable of achieving speeds of nearly a hundred quadrillion FLOPS (floating-point operations per second). These computing systems have incredibly powerful cores and can perform tasks in mere milliseconds, however, they can only perform them sequentially. Which means they need to be pre-programmed to execute tasks. Unlike computers, our brain can think, recognize patterns, and seek meaning in milieu of facts, emotions and associations, which gives us an incredible advantage. The human brain is structured to process information in a highly parallel manner, which allows us to assess, understand act and learn at the same time.
So, what if our technology could do the same? We have tools today that help our business organizations understand the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ but it is often the ‘why’ that they struggle to understand. To get answers to the ‘why’ we need a super intelligent system that can mimic the powerful cognitive abilities of the human brain. The Fore, the Mid and the Hind Brain
To understand how our brain learns and makes decisions, we need to understand its structure. Without getting into the exact medical definitions, we can broadly say, the human brain exists as the fore, mid and the hind or the Limbic brain. Each of these control specific functions that play a vital role in our learning and decision making abilities. The fore and the mid brain control our abilities to communicate, our memories and recollections and the skills we learn and acquire. The Limbic system controls our fundamental emotions, behavior, instincts, motivation, long-term memory etc. A simpler summary would be that our fore and mid brain help sort our ‘what’ and ‘how’ but it is the hind brain (or Limbic brain) that guides the ‘why’, because all that we do follows from the instincts and emotions that drive us.
The technology to understand the ‘why’ will drive future businesses
Data is a vital resource for business organizations, it is the new oil, as experts say. The amount of data generated across business operations today is huge. While there are many tools in the market, getting hold of contextually relevant, data backed insights in real-time is still a big challenge for businesses. There exists an insights gap which traditional BI and analytics systems have failed to address - to understand the business critical ‘why’. The real power of AI lies in its “contextual awareness,” namely its ability to sense and respond to current context.AI powered by cognitive intelligence will help future businesses seek answers to the ‘why’. Advancements of AI technologies and capabilities will inevitably impact the ways in which businesses operate and the need to adopt and embrace a radically new approach to decision making will be crucial to gain a competitive advantage.
