Soon Your Network Will Manage Itself

Traditionally, artificial intelligence isn’t thought of positively. In science fiction A.I. systems are usually the antagonist our hero has to overcome; or, more recently, as a knowledgeable sidekick to our hero. Outside of science fiction, however, A.I. has some real uses that make it a benefit to businesses today.

Understanding A.I.
Before we dive in too deep, we should first examine how artificial intelligence actually works outside of the sensationalist scope of popular culture. In actuality, A.I. is the practice of creating systems that can successfully see through tasks and other processes that would typically require the intelligence of a human, at least. The goal of A.I. is to crunch data in a way where it can accurately replicate the human decision-making process under certain situations where given options are available.

Artificial intelligence is largely dependent on a concept called machine learning. Machine learning is the automated process of compiling recorded data and basing predictions on these data sets. These predictions are always shifting as data is added, giving the A.I. construct the impression of learning. While the potential applications of this kind of technology vary widely, it shows particular promise where network management is concerned.

Leveraging Machine Learning
A business’ proper function is heavily reliant on its network. There are a variety of ways that newfangled artificial intelligence practices can help to ensure this proper functionality. They include:

  • A.I. systems can analyze collected data much faster than humans can.
  • User performance issues can be identified on both an individual level, and a systemic one.
  • Interpersonal stress and operational hang-ups due to network issues can be avoided through proactive, preventative activities.
  • The origins of issues are identified, thereby avoiding interpersonal finger pointing, and the strife it creates among staff.

Furthermore, with a lot of innovative technologies needing a network connection to function, A.I. will soon be needed for network management, especially in larger networks with heavy traffic. Even in everyday life, the Internet of Things, advancements in search engines, and emerging technologies like self-driving vehicles will likely need to be managed by some semblance of smart machines. There are seemingly endless applications that A.I. can improve if implemented properly.

How do you anticipate you’ll leverage A.I. for your business down the road? Share your thoughts with us below.
