Four Ways Your Business Can Use Machine Learning
Machine Learning can take your business to the next level. There are so many opportunities for you to capitalize and differentiate yourself from your competitors. For example, in Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement, you can add a Predicted Probability field to your Leads and Opportunities screens. This will use Azure Machine Learning to predict the outcome of a potential deal based on your historical wins and losses for similar deals.
Using Computer Vision API, Machine Learning can assist you in automation of the tagging and cataloging process. One example is in the manufacturing industry. You have a vast repository of images of your product at various stages of production, as well as good or defective product photos. You can create a neural network that will automate and improve the quality assurance for your business, using remote cameras.
Another example of the power of Machine Learning is in wildlife services. Using motion activated cameras to track species can be time consuming. Humans might look at 40,000 images and see mostly moving grass. Training the model to look for your target will reduce your approved photo count to a few hundred and vastly save on your employee time to work on other tasks.
If your company has a vast repository of knowledge, why not leverage that by creating a Q&A repository? With the right format, you can even insert a bot in front of the QnA endpoint and have it search the knowledge base in response to plain language questions.
The Internet of Things (IoT) also presents tremendous opportunity as well as challenges, depending on the number of data points you wish to capture. For some industries, this could mean billions of data points that need to be processed daily, in real time. This is where high capacity Spark clusters, with in-memory processing come into play. These specialized servers allow you to ingest massive amounts of data, and then use a product like Power BI to present this data in a meaningful way.
