AI (Artificial intelligence) has received a bad rep in the news recently and some would say "I told you so" (Mainly Elon Musk)
Recently Facebooks AI chat bots were shut down when they started to 'create their own language' (turned out to just be shorthand English to allow them to communicate quicker)
Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have spoken about the dangers of AI and Sci films from Terminator and the Avengers to I -Robot speak of the dangers of AI robots creating AI robots and becoming a massive issue for the Human race.
They fear that we as a race are not yet equipped to handle a fully automated world. Bill Gates promotes taxing of mechanised robots in the same way we would humans, if a Robot can perform the actions of 3 humans than surely governments are losing 3 incomes of tax revenue and a way to keep the global economy going would need to be thought out if we are going to automate more and more of our daily chores.
Elon Musk who is making amazing progress in high speed super underground carriageways and also SPACE-X programmes to populate Mars.....is somewhat worried that as more and more of our functions become fully automated, that testing AI can have disastrous consequences if AI robots learnt that they could control these functions themselves.
While Koda Web does not promote SKYNET and Terminators sent from the future to be our robot overlords* (*when it happens we will of course fully support our Robot Overlords)
We do however promote efficiency and making your website work in an intelligent manner to save you and your business time and effort.
Some simple tasks that take up a part of your day can be performed on your website to free up your time and effort to work in other parts of your business.
One of our clients reported that filling in enrollment forms could take 20 minutes sitting in front of clients:
We designed a conditional webform that they could send to clients to 90% complete the enrollment and free up 15 minutes per client which adds up over the days, weeks and months to a significant savings time that has allowed them to create more sales.
Another client was calling all sales order customers and updating them on their delivery status (or receiving calls!)
Koda designed an automated system where users could log into the website and view previous orders, current orders, delivery status and tracking where provided.
We have also created Chat bots for simplistic tasks, automated onboarding mail sends to full back end stock intergration systems that print stock lists direct to Forklift machines to pick the order while at the same time contacting couriers to collect deliveries.
