Time has briskly changed the pace at which technology is progressing. The progression of technology has, in turn, challenged the verticals of human intelligence. Strategic intelligence has become the new culture and Artificial Intelligence has emerged as the new normal. The advent of Artificial Intelligence has invaded all sectors alike. The prominent one among them is the business process outsourcing industry. Let us explore it in detail.
Deep diving into Artificial Intelligence
Put in simple words, Artificial Intelligence is the intelligence shown by machines. If we deep dive into the neural schema of Artificial Intelligence, we find that machine learning and deep learning power the inner core of Artificial Intelligence. When we talk about machine learning, we are actually referring to a sequence of algorithms and other relative arrangements, which get created during the execution of a specific task. On the other hand, deep learning is all about the variety of permutations and combinations, which are possibly closest to the algorithm needed to execute the task. Thus, it can be concluded that it is machine learning and deep learning that form the basis of pedagogical theory lying underneath Artificial Intelligence.
Interface with Business Process Outsourcing Industry
A survey conducted with attendees of Intelligent Automation, Chicago, 2017 revealed the following figures:
- 56% of attendees had confirmed that they plan to partially automate 21-40% of their business processes using AI.
- Over 40% of attendees had confirmed that the major challenge in implementing AI is the Standardization of processes before implementation.
- One more interesting finding is that 68% of attendees confirmed that the FTEs will be redeployed into more value-added work and 8% felt no impact on FTEs.
We may conclude the following from the above-mentioned survey;
- Artificial intelligence and BPO industry has a strong correlation with each other in the domain of chatbot.
- Chatbot can be called a mini AI robot which is at the intersecting point of both AI and the BPO industry.
- A close interface of AI with the BPO industry would lead to the generation of huge revenues and act as a powerhouse for other startups.
The superposition principle of AI and BPO
Artificial Intelligence is fast invading various industries, so it is dictating upon business process outsourcing companies. To put it in a nutshell, Artificial Intelligence is transforming industries by researching in Big data and Cloud computing. As such, BPO is the one that is most affected as it is intimately related to both the former and the later. Moreover, it acts as an epicenter for numerous kinds of business process outsourcing companies. The centrality of the BPO industry also paves the way for meeting the growing customer expectations. Therefore, it would not be wrong to point out that a thriving BPO industry would flourish with AI intervention.
In the post-globalized world, businesses are eager to pile up their revenues. To make it happen, they want to cut down on unnecessary costs and further the scale of their operations especially in the untapped markets where favorable business conditions are present. Hence, they desire the outsourcing units to leverage the power of AI so that not only the subsidiary company is benefited but the parent company also becomes a partner in the road of rapid monetary progress.
BPO companies worldwide are now fast responding to this changing business climate. Using Big data and cloud computing they are mining large sets of data and generating a comprehensive graphical analysis from the raw and randomly stacked up data sets. These analytical data sets are not only useful for the scaling up of business operations in general but also tracking up customer satisfaction by review monitoring in particular.
Hence, when we are talking about the superposition principle in the case of AI and BPO, we are referring to the mutual benefits one can bring for the other. Put in simpler words, AI can make the BPO industry thrive in the form of revolutionizing the processes liked to chatbot. On the other hand, BPO industry can benefit AI by acting as a hotbed of research and a new genre for researchers interested in this field.
