AI Model

The popularity of AI (Artificial Intelligence) systems is growing in leaps and bounds. Businesses around the world are starting to understand how these systems can benefit them, but AI is not yet at the stage where you can simply take it out of the box and expect it to perform. AI systems require training, which is where AI models come into the equation.

An “AI model” is an algorithm that is taught using data and input from a human expert. The model is evaluated on its accuracy by comparing the results it provides against the decisions made by the human expert. This often requires the algorithm to review a significant amount of data. In addition, by accessing data from multiple sources, the model is better able to find patterns which it can use to further streamline its analysis. The model is attempting to replicate the decision process of a team of experts with access to the same data.
