Accenture’s Applied Intelligence platform claims to provide non-data scientists with the tools and access to the data they need to rapidly assemble applications
Professional services firm, Accenture, has launched an Applied Intelligence platform at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, which helps organisations make use of artificial intelligence (AI) without the need for deep data science expertise.
The platform aims to allow organisations to apply pre-configured self-learning industry solutions, as well as develop new solutions.
Accenture’s team of industry specialists and more than 3,000 data scientists have already developed a range of 40 intelligent industry solutions for the platform that helps bridge the gap between information technology and operational technology.
These include asset and fleet management solutions expected to unlock efficiencies across manufacturing, transportation and logistics and energy. Examples from the platform’s suite of intelligent industry solutions include:
The Applied Intelligence Platform builds on the proven Accenture Insight Platform through which Accenture has been offering analytics applications using machine learning and deep learning to clients. It will integrate these capabilities with edge analytics and Internet of Things (IoT) services, as well as access to more than 350 data sources, all made accessible via an on-demand, low-code platform.
“Data science has largely been decoupled from operations and application development, and models are often deployed only to be orphaned as there is a limited feedback on effectiveness”
As a result, clients are less dependent on specific technologies as the platform leverages solutions and tools from leading technology providers, to enable creation of the proper solutions across industries and functions.
“The Applied Intelligence Platform enables AI-powered transformation at scale as clients will be able to systematically embed AI across their operations — from the edge right through to the cloud,” said Mike Sutcliff, group chief executive, Accenture Digital.
The potential benefits of the platform include:
“Data science to date has largely been decoupled from operations and application development, and models are often created and deployed only to be orphaned as there is a limited feedback on their effectiveness,” said Athina Kanioura, chief analytics officer and global lead of Accenture applied intelligence.
“Our new Applied Intelligence Platform provides non-data scientist with the tools and access to the data they need to rapidly assemble and apply applications while the platform ensures the effectiveness of the underlying advanced analytics.”
