What came first: artificial intelligence (AI) value off the back of strong data or data value off the back of AI?
This “chicken and egg” conundrum is not only a headscratcher for businesses contemplating the future role of machine learning (ML) in their supply and demand planning. More often than not, it’s actually proving to be a reason — or excuse — for not investing in ML’s capabilities at all.
The thought process is that, just like the “chicken and egg” cliché, there’s no right answer. Therefore, investing in AI comes with a gamble that it won’t work because the datasets won’t be strong enough to optimize the technology.
