Difference between AI and BI
AI, put simply, is a way to make a computer system think intelligently like humans. It learns from experiences, and several problem-solving measures and mimics human intuitions and judgment, post-training, and iterative experiments.
BI is a technology used to gather, store, access, and analyse data to help business users in making better decisions. BI turns data into meaningful insights – in the form of reports and dashboards – and enables organizations to make better data-driven decisions. It helps capitalize and maximize available historical data.
The Differences Between AI and BI
|Business Intelligence||Artificial Intelligence|
|What is it?||Traditional analytics that make analysing data easier but leaves decision-making in the hand of humans||Advanced analytics that enables computers to make critical business decisions themselves|
|Goal||To streamline the process of collecting and analysing data and provide businesses with useful information and analysis to aid decision-making||To mimic human intelligence, behaviour, and thought process and help businesses to make rational decisions|
|Why and when is it used?||Develops insights based on data already gathered; it is used to answer what has happened in the past||Analyses large quantities of big data; it is used to answer what will happen in the future|
|How does it work?||It works on the principles of statistical analysis||It uses sophisticated machine learning and deep learning algorithms|
|How does it help businesses?||It analyses past data and enables businesses to make better data-driven decisions to improve business processes, customer service, and employee satisfaction||It creates human-like intelligence in machines and enables businesses to forecast and predict customer demand, competitor standing, and market changes|

|Application||Majorly used in reporting, data mining, data warehousing, and highlights key matrices and visuals out of historic data in the form of modern, intuitive dashboards||Majorly used for predictive analytics, gaming, forecasting, natural language processing, robotics, image recognition, and self-driving cars|
|Goal and final outcome||It starts with gathering and analysing data points from various data sources, and ends with visual reports and dashboards||It starts by training computer systems to think and work like humans, and ends with predictive insights about the future|
|Usefulness||BI is helpful in descriptive analytics||AI is a key player in prescriptive analytics|
