“We look to understanding what we know and don’t know about our problem to determine whether AI is a good fit or not.
Known knowns: we know the destination and how to get there
Known unknowns: we know the destination but not how to get there
Unknown knowns: we know the area but don’t know where to go
Unknown unknowns: we don’t know the area or where we’re going”CS Penn
What can AI do?
Answer: The Three As – Acceleration, Accuracy and Alleviation

- Accuracy – anything to do with mathematics and probability you will get a better answer from a machine that a human most of the time; and
- Alleviation – offloading lower-value tasks to machines so that humans are freed up to do more valuable work.
