Impactful AI Use Cases in 16 Industries: Check Out Our Interactive Infographic!


Explore the power of Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Mathematical Optimization and other AI Techniques across 16 Industries

Have you ever noticed that many lists of AI technologies and use cases tend to overlook mathematical optimization techniques? While these lists and the broader media in general typically highlight machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and other fashionable and often controversial applications of AI, optimization is often missing from the conversation.

So why does it matter? When evaluated as a whole across industries, use cases powered by mathematical optimization are not only among the most robust and enduring, but they are arguably the most impactful and highest ROI applications compared to all other AI-powered software applications. That’s because optimization-powered systems aren’t just telling you when demand is highest, how the sentiment toward your brand has changed, when a customer will churn, or when a crop will likely ripen (followed by your combine harvester breaking down, all in the midst of a worker shortage, naturally!)... Instead, optimization-powered software systems actually prescribe how to schedule your employees, plan your maintenance, sequence your production, load your trailer, price your product, or route your trucks - even on short notice in response to unpredictable disruptions. That’s why we call it prescriptive analytics because it’s prescribing what to do with all the insights derived from all those other techniques, and in a way that gets you as close as possible to achieving your business objectives without violating your business constraints.

That's why we're excited to introduce our new interactive infographic, which showcases some of the most common AI applications grouped in five different AI technology categories across 16 different industries. While this is nowhere near an exhaustive list of AI methods, industries, or use cases, nor does it make predictions about the use cases of the future, we hope you’ll find it to be a valuable resource for business leaders, innovators, students and really anyone who wants to see the current AI landscape through a broader lens.
