Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been burning up our Twitter feed of late. Every day brings a new AI development for business, and this doesn’t appear to be slowing down in 2018. Even though this tech has the reputation of being only for large enterprise businesses, there are more than a few AI developments that you can utilize for your small business as well.

With 2018 comes the perfect time to start turning your eye toward AI. This is one phenomena that isn’t going to go away. But if you’re not building Westworld-esque robots what do you need AI for anyhow?

From customer relationship management to human resources, to marketing to analysis, there’s something AI can do for you, no matter your company’s size.

A great example is Monkey Learn. This awesome machine learning platform can turn text from emails, surveys, or even tweets into actionable data! With applications in marketing, sales, and customer service, you can get the power of knowledge without having to crunch all the numbers yourself.

Of course, most people in the tech world have heard of Watson from IBM. Besides beating world champions at chess, IBM has now released a Watson Ecosystem for small businesses enabling you to do everything from translate voice to text, to build your own analytic environment.

In short, AI is not only for the big guys! Spend some time thinking about how artificial intelligence can serve your business in the new year.
