Using AI: 5 mistakes to absolutely avoid!

< Return to blog

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to profoundly transform the way your business operates, but its integration requires a strategic and thoughtful approach. It is crucial to avoid some common mistakes that could compromise the success of its use. In this article, we will look at the 5 mistakes to avoid at all costs when integrating AI into your company.

1. A complete lack of strategy

Well, you’re heading straight into the wall! Rushing headlong is clearly not the best approach. However, this is a very common error in the field. Although AI is easily accessible, when it comes to integrating it into your activity, the stakes are very real, as much as the financial cost. You must necessarily think about why you want to integrate it and who the users would be. Is it a technical or business team? Do you want to integrate AI to improve your turnover, your customer satisfaction or even save time? It’s not just about following the trend, it’s imperative to identify areas where it can actually create value.

2. Neglected data

AI and its ability to respond in a relevant manner to your problems relies on the data sets that you transmit to it. Poor quality data will inevitably lead to unreliable or downright bad results. Underestimating the importance of data cleaning and preparation can compromise algorithm performance. You will certainly save time when launching your activity, but will lose much more time when it comes to resuming erroneous results… It is therefore essential to devote the necessary time to preparing the files and data that will feed your AI to guarantee accurate and relevant results.

3. Non-existent control

A crucial error consists of ignoring the “configurations” part of the AI: whether it is the prompting work, that is to say the instructions that you will give to your AI assistant or the checks and adjustments made once the solution is in place. We know well that configuring an AI is not an easy thing. However, it is a very important step that must be carried out with the greatest professionalism. You must ensure that the decision-making processes of the algorithms are understandable and at the same time as accurate as possible. The more detailed the prompt, the more structured and relevant the responses provided by the AI ​​will be. This should not, however, exclude control work. Supervision of the elements produced by AI must be regular and followed by necessary updates and adjustments. Ignoring these aspects can have very negative consequences, both in terms of customer satisfaction and also in terms of brand image.

4. Teams left to their own devices

“My teams are competent and do not need any training.” We don’t doubt their skills, but AI is a powerful technology and one that evolves extremely quickly, much more than any other software in general use. It is therefore necessary to explain to your employees how AI works and to train them in its effective use. Successful adoption of AI involves collaboration between technical and business teams. Once all stakeholders are on board with the project, it is crucial to invest in training to ensure that your business will get the most out of AI and that your investments will quickly pay off.

5. Succumbing to an addiction

“Artificial Intelligence is great, I don’t need to do anything anymore! »

What a mistake and by far the worst! Although AI automates many tasks, your employees still play a major role in controlling and tracking the responses provided. Do not take as absolute truth what AI dictates to you and do not be dependent on these technologies. In the worst case, dependence on AI causes a total lack of reflection in humans who must nevertheless be able to maintain control over critical decisions and not let the AI ​​operate autonomously. You will have to find a happy medium between human and technology, as we do through our range of AI solutions: dialogg.ai which provides you with the necessary elements to boost your customer interactions while keeping humans at the heart of the processes.

6. Conclusion

In conclusion, the use of AI can bring significant benefits to businesses, but avoiding these common mistakes is essential to ensure successful integration. By understanding each, you can maximize the benefits of AI while minimizing the risks. A thoughtful approach is the key to taking full advantage of this revolutionary technology.
