AI can be used to derive new, valuable, and most importantly, actionable insights from data. Specifically, we use algorithms, or machine learning applications, to detect patterns in vast volumes of data and interpret their meaning. The new insights that are gleaned from this method of data analysis are different from traditional data analysis because the insights are more detailed and can grow in value over time, as the trained models get better at analyzing the data and making predictions.
