Artificial Intelligence (AI) Simply put, artificial intelligence is another way of programming computers. Instead of giving a computer exact instruction on what to do, it is programmed to understand problems and solve them on its own. AI is used in many different areas: search engines, map services and digital assistants are examples of services that use it daily. Advanced Analytics and Machine Learning are two other concepts that are often mentioned in connection with AI. By using advanced algorithms, you can allow computers to test hypotheses instead of having people doing it. This way, you can test many more hypotheses than is otherwise possible and arrive at solutions faster. For example, within the Volvo Group, Advanced Analytics is used to predict battery life. This is one of the electric vehicle's single most expensive components and by predicting in advance exactly when it needs to be replaced, you can save both money and resources.
