This session will explore AI and Machine learning and how it can be applied to the procurement process. AI is the science of training systems to emulate specific human tasks through learning and automation. In short, it’s a technology that makes it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs and perform specific human tasks, such as pattern recognition, finding anomalies in data, image and video analytics, and more. AI can help analytics programs in government find connections and trends in the data that human analysts might miss due to scale, complexity, or other factors and it can do it at a much faster speed.
