‘’The AI Way’’ – Their Unique Style

ATAI has developed a systemic approach for designing, architecting, process rehashing, and implementing a solution for a given business problem based on their deep understanding of technology, business environment, and human psychology while keeping the core purpose of a business transformation as a central theme. They refer to this as “The AI Way”. It encompasses the following points:

  1. Determining the most important business objectives.This exercise is carried out on a business level, with a clear goal in mind. This serves as a compass for the organization’s AI adoption journey, as well as a way to set the tone for the cultural transition.
  2. Process & technique “as-is”This aids us in comprehending and appreciating the existing situation. This is one of the most difficult aspects of the entire workout. It serves as a myth buster for various processes and procedures, in addition to knowing the current situation.
  3. Heat mapThis aids in prioritization and the development of a true ROI model for this activity. This necessitates the use of digitalization and intelligence software.
  4. PilotThis step allows the company to obtain a sense of the true value of AI. The pilot must be carefully chosen because it provides: (a) Confidence in the technology to management as well as numerous impacted stakeholders, and (b) Aids in understanding the unspoken requirements of various stakeholders.
  5. Execution of the ProgramA big bang approach, which might disrupt or confound larger teams and the current business, is strongly discouraged. This stage should also be used to re-orient and train selected teams. They can bring in high-quality inputs to assure product quality. The solution should be put through its paces in a real-world setting. This knowledge is also applied to the creation of rollout training materials.
  6. RolloutThis is the part of the solution rollout where the rubber meets the road. This is preceded by a training program for all stakeholders who will be affected.
  7. Continual EducationUnlike previous technologies, AI-based solutions evolve by self-learning from changing environments and conditions, which necessitates continual data monitoring and AI model finetuning.
