Machine learning falls under the realm of artificial intelligence (AI), and though the technology has been around for a long time, it’s becoming more relevant when married with big data, according to Amjad Hussain, CEO of Detroit-based Algomus, who provides AI assistance to retail and suppliers.

During a recent workshop in Bentonville, Hussain demonstrated how AI is used by some retail suppliers such as Sony. He said AI, when used as a business assistant, can enhance productivity in an office. Hussain said machine learning combined with human creativity creates collaborative intelligence.
