How to Build and Integrate for Sustained Competitive Advantage

Let’s start with the definition of artificial intelligence:

1: a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers.

2: the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior.

Now let’s see where humans break down and AI needs to be inserted. Humans are good at dealing with a single problem at a time, like “How do I optimize the loading of this truck?”

➡️ What about if several degrees of complexity are added, like “Only people certified to touch this product are allowed to unload it.” Not too bad if you have enough of these certified people in the right place at the right time.

➡️ What if the inventory to load the truck must come from several different locations and you get the order in the last 24 hours and it must be delivered today?

➡️ What if you have to pick up a product every time you deliver one and they may not be from the same location?

The problem is solved with a combination of human intelligence coupled with applied artificial intelligence. Now you have a sustained competitive advantage.
