Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

Exploring Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

Considered one of today’s most disruptive technologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is real and revolutionary. Artificial Intelligence is a broad term which encompasses a machine mimicking cognitive functions of the human brain, such as learning and problem-solving. Research has divided AI into two types, strong and weak. Weak AI is machine intelligence that is limited to a specific or narrow area, whereas Strong AI currently doesn’t exist, being described as the next, theoretical step of AI.

In some cases, when people talk about AI they might actually mean Machine Learning (ML), a branch of artificial intelligence based on the idea that systems can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions through deep learning. Version 1 Innovation Labs have been exploring the potential of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to understand how these technologies can be used in our customer’s businesses to provide real-world benefits. To date, Version 1 Innovation Labs have interpolated AI with Chatbots, building the Smart FAQ Bot using open source and Cloud technology.


Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can be applied across a wide range of industries - below are some industries where this technology can be applied to.

Travel and Hospitality
Energy and Utilities
Financial Services
