Technology came and has taken the world by storm, changing the way that things are done. There are many benefits that have been brought about by technology. Many things are now easier to do, or can be done in more efficient ways. In the long run, businesses are making more money due to technology. In this article, we are going to discuss the importance of technology in business.
Communication with Customers
There is easy communication between businesses and customers. They can interact through the business websites or social media pages. The good thing is that people can interact at whatever time or place. There is also the fact that the websites can contain all the information regarding the businesses.
Efficiency of Operations
Companies that use technology get to save on time and money. Good examples of the technologies used are software like quick books and warehouse inventories.
Business Culture and Class Relations
Dynamic working environments are created by technology, since people get to interact with people from all over the world, different races, cultures, and religions. Factory managers can coordinate with shipment coordinators in other regions, who will then coordinate with store managers in yet other places, etc.
Technology in the field of security has helped foil security threats and vandalism. It has protected financial data, confidential executive decisions and other proprietary information, ensuring that companies aren’t compromised by their competition.
Companies can actually conduct their research better due to technology. Researching the market is important if companies wish to survive in the turbulent waters of business. They can try out new markets without actually setting up their presence physically.
Human Paragon – The Difference Between Strong and Weak AI
Still on the topic of technology, we are now going to take a look at the difference between strong artificial intelligence and weak artificial intelligence. Weak artificial intelligence is where the artificial intelligence has weak applications that can make decisions and solve problems in a very limited area. Outside that limited area, they are useless. They are found all over, and a good example is self-driving cars. They are becoming better at their specific tasks by the day, and the term “weak AI” shouldn’t be confused for some useless applications. Good examples of modern day “weak AI” includes Siri, Cortana, and the cutting edge IBM Watson system. Strong AI is something that can be considered human level intelligence, and is self-aware, and self-conscious.
Technology is an important part of life, and has even given birth to artificial intelligence. The artificial intelligence is still evolving, and right now the weak AI is already a reality. We are not yet sure about the strong AI, but we hope to see it in the future. It is pretty hard to find the balance between the two, but the strong AI is more like a human being, since it is just as intelligent, self-aware, and self-conscious, just like human beings. It is best to embrace the technology and let it work for us.
