Big data technologies, the Internet of things, and artificial intelligence are used in every area of people's lives and activities. Technologies allow you to own information about users and products, make decisions, automate routine processes, and improve the speed and quality of production of products and services
Questions (for each case of technology application):
- How do technologies work for creating a service/product?
- What data do you collect and what decisions do they allow you to make?
- What processes have you managed to optimize?
- What tasks did you manage to solve with the help of artificial intelligence?
- How have the process of implementing technologies into the product manufacturing or providing a service been taking place?
- What exactly has digital technology improved in your product / service?
- What risks do you see in using technologies? How is security organized in the use of technologies?
