Is "Insights" the right way to think about the value of data?

Is "Insights" the right way to think about the value of data? | Decision Intelligence News |

"Though it’s the stock response, 'insights' is precisely the wrong way to think about how an advance in AI will create value. In fact, we feel that 'insights' often is code for 'We don’t know what to do with our AI’s predictions.'

A much better answer would be to describe the decisions that the predictions will improve, because AI has value only if it leads to better decision-making."

Lorien Pratt's insight:

In examining how AI predictions affect decisions, this article goes beyond the need to focus on decisions vs. "insights". Because insights don't get you all the way to understanding the impact of your actions on outcomes.

What-if Scenarios in DI

What-if Scenarios in DI | Decision Intelligence News |

"Beyond decision making, the Decision Intelligence Platforms allow to work in what-if mode. The idea is to change the parameters generating the scenarios, to change the set of constraints to be respected as well as the objectives to be optimized.


By controlling this scenario generation at a very high level, it becomes possible to analyze potential futures, and to draw the most profitable one for a company."
