AI Discovery

At Atlantic BT, every development project begins with a requirements-gathering phase, which we call “discovery”. During our artificial intelligence discoveries, we will work together to identify the systems and business workflows that are:

  • Impactful to the employees
  • Affect costs and/or revenues
  • Can be improved with either AI technology or digitizing to the web.

There are three significant items we’ll explore during our AI Discovery:

  • Your Business. We need a high level understanding of the employees, the customers, and the work. 
  • Your Systems. We want to know all the systems, internal and third-party, that are part of the company’s digital space. 
  • Your People. We’ll learn about all of your different departments and job functions and how they impact cost and revenue. 

The Discovery Phase has been a first, and significant, step of our development process for years. Our AI-focused version  takes shape through stakeholder interviews, technical audits, user interviews, and contextual inquiries. Click through each item to learn more about how we execute each step.

Upon completion of the AI Discovery, you’ll receive a comprehensive plan detailing the results and our recommendations for next steps, aka your Practical AI Roadmap.

5 to 10 workflow actions for implementation

We will suggest AI tools to enhance efficiency and gain tangible benefits when suitable, while also considering non-AI digitization as an alternative solution.

A baseline metric for improvement comparison

This is likely the number of hours spent, but it may vary depending on the specific action.

A focus on reducing disliked or augmenting liked effort

The purpose of this is not to be replaced by AI automation, but rather to increase engagement and be supported by the company.

Are we a good fit?

At Atlantic BT we build complex sites. Websites that do work and/or handle large amounts of traffic and content. Organizations who typically require complex websites are in mid-market to large enterprise businesses. Our clients aren’t building their websites for the first time, but rather require improvements / redesigns for the 3rd, 4th, 5th generation of their original site. We’re a great fit for clients who need their website to interface with other systems, or have applications that need to meet specific regulations, or those who just need help determining how they can use technology to make their business operations more efficient / profitable.

Questions & Answers

How does AI work?

In its most simplest form, AI programming is centered around three key cognitive abilities: learning, reasoning, and self-correction.
The learning aspect of AI programming centers on the acquisition of data and the development of rules for transforming that data into actionable insights. These rules, known as algorithms, provide a step-by-step guide for computing systems to follow when executing a specific task.
The reasoning aspect involves AI’s capacity to select the most suitable algorithm from a pool of options based on the context at hand.
The self-correction aspect focuses on the ability of AI technology to continuously adjust and refine its output until it successfully achieves the desired objective.

Is there a difference between AI and ML?

Yes. While Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are often used interchangeably, they are not the same.
AI is a broad concept that refers to machines or software mimicking human intelligence. It’s about creating systems that can perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence. These tasks include learning from experience, understanding natural language, recognizing patterns, and making decisions.
On the other hand, ML is a subset of artificial intelligence. It’s a method of training machines to improve their performance on a specific task over time, without being explicitly programmed to do so. In ML, an algorithm learns from data. The more data it processes, the better it gets at the task it’s designed for.
So, in essence, while AI is about making machines intelligent, ML is one of the ways we’re achieving it.

Will AI replace human labor?

It is highly unlikely that AI will completely replace humans. It is more likely to complement and enhance human work, automating routine tasks and allowing humans to focus on more valuable activities. Additionally, developing and maintaining AI systems requires specialized knowledge, creating new job opportunities in fields like computer science and machine learning technology.

How much does AI cost?

Just like with any other development project, the costs associated with designing and developing your AI solution will vary. Depending on your project, that range can be anywhere from a few thousand to millions of dollars. Available data, current infrastructure, software, project objectives, etc. will all impact the complexity and thus cost of the project.
The only way to accurately estimate a development project is to look at the specifics of what you want to achieve. Atlantic BT accomplishes this through an AI Discovery, which is very similar to the Discovery Phase of Our Process when developing any other type of application. During this process, we’ll be able to rapidly determine functional requirements and build a plan that will ensure success within an established budget. Atlantic BT will then provide you with a comprehensive breakdown of the timeline, cost and any additional resources needed for your project.

I don’t know much about AI, where do I even begin?

“Fear of the unknown” shouldn’t paralyze you from considering how new technology may positively impact your business. A valuable starting point to enhance your knowledge of AI and ML is with Atlantic BT’s blog. This section of our website offers a wealth of valuable resources, including insights into the history, use cases across various departments, and a comprehensive roadmap for getting started with any AI implementation project.
Our AI Discovery is a great first step for business leaders who aren’t quite sure what area of their business can benefit the most from AI applications. The goal of our AI Discovery is to help you to identify systems and business workflows that can be improved with this sophisticated technology. Reach out today to get started.

Is AI safe?

Artificial Intelligence is a tool, and like any tool, its safety depends on how it’s used. When designed, developed, and deployed responsibly, AI can be safe and extremely beneficial. However, there are valid concerns about its misuse. Issues such as data privacy, algorithmic bias, and the fear of job displacement are often discussed in the context of its safe use. It’s important for organizations to address these concerns by implementing ethical guidelines, prioritizing transparency, and ensuring that AI systems are auditable.
At Atlantic BT, we’re committed to the responsible use of AI. We adhere to best practices in development and deployment, ensuring that the AI solutions that we work with are not only effective but also respectful of user privacy and fairness. We believe that with the right approach, AI can be both safe and transformative for your business.

How does AI impact cybersecurity?

AI plays a dual role in cybersecurity, as both a defender and a potential threat. As a defender, AI tools can enhance cybersecurity measures through more sophisticated threat detection and predictive capabilities. However, it can also pose threats to cybersecurity. Cybercriminals can use AI to carry out more sophisticated attacks. For example, they can automate their attack processes or use the technology to better hide their activities. Businesses must also be aware of the potential harm of AI Bias. If a system is trained on biased data, it could lead to unfair outcomes, which could be exploited by malicious actors.
At Atlantic BT, we understand the complexities of AI in cybersecurity. Our goal is to ensure that our use of any technology provides the maximum benefit to your business while minimizing potential threats.
