1. Predictive software is the most crucial tool to ensure that the new tools work as intended. The staff would be able to enter how much time is saved using this tool, the speed at which it works, its cost, its accuracy and all the other variables associated with it. The predictive analysis will then be able to determine a forecasted model of the possibility(s) with an accepted level of reliability. This will allow them to ensure the new IT tool is solving the problems they intended, without having any outside repercussions. A sensitivity analysis would also work well, if the software came with usage points (like speed of process, accuracy, etc.) The IT staff would be able to pug in how much time was actually being saved, the accuracy of the …show more content…

They allow the user to plug in mass amount s of data, and can analyze them to learn complex patterns and relationships that humans simply couldn’t process. It would allow the city planner to analyze things such as where are the bus tops are at highest/lowest usage, are any bus routes overlapping in locations, are passengers having to make bus route switches at higher rates that others, and so much more. It will allow the city to determine what they are doing right and what they can improve on, so they can alter the different pieces to make a better experience for the riders. Next, I recommend the use of predictive analysis tools. These tools use statistics, data mining, historical data, and assumptions of the future to predict the behavior patterns of consumers in the future. Companies like FedEx use them to determine the effects of price change or new services, and has seen 65%-90% accuracy. This ability to determine the best solution before it happens is an incredible achievement. Making changes that aren’t well receptive can cost your business customers, reputation, and much more. Putting out the right plan the first time can save your face and more importantly, you cash flow. For the city planner, predicting which bus stops will have the …show more content…

Watson’s intelligence is much different than that of a human, for better and for worse. In the better category, the clear difference is their capacity for learning. Humans have storage space the size of a shoebox, according to the video, and learning new tasks and topics can take multiple times seeing it in order to bridge the neurons for a memory. Watson can “memorize” new information in the snap of a finger, with a server size spanning over 8 refrigerators. This allows it to recall 200 million unique pages of data, while processing it at a blistering 80 teraflops, or 80 trillion operations per second. Humans on the other hand process information very linearly, and struggle at multi-tasking a handful of tasks let alone the amount Watson handles. Lastly, Watson can have languages programmed into it. Humans can take months, or even years, to learn languages as opposed to Watson who can learn it as soon as his programmer uploads the data. This allows Watson to be operable anywhere with a written language. Any good can still bring a bad side, unfortunately and Watson is not exempt. First off, Watson reads in binary code, so can only function with straight answer questions or answer coming from an established database. Dealing with human emotions, intelligence, and theories is beyond the capability of its processing. Also, Watson cannot learn on its own. Due to the fact Watson is fully programmed, any processing mistakes must be fixed by human programmers (although quantum
