A Blog On Managing Service Requests In The Era Of AI & Machine Learning

Artificial intelligence is the ability of a computer system to replicate human cognitive functions like learning and problem-solving. A computer system can repeat human reasoning to learn from new knowledge and make judgments through artificial intelligence (AI). Artificial intelligence can be classified as Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI), which has a limited set of capabilities, Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), which has powers similar to those of humans, and Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI), which has capabilities that are greater than those of humans. Narrow AI or weak AI are other names for artificially narrow intelligence or ANI. Machine learning is used by internet search engines, spam-filtering email software, websites that provide personalized recommendations, banking software that identifies questionable transactions, and several mobile applications like speech recognition. In this context, artificial intelligence refers to the general ability of computers to simulate human thought and carry out tasks in real-world environments.

In contrast, machine learning refers to the Systems that can identify patterns, form opinions, and get better with experience thanks to technologies and algorithms. A subset of artificial intelligence called "machine learning" enables a system to automatically learn from primary data without explicit programming. AI aims to create intelligent computer systems capable of resolving complicated issues like those posed by humanity.

What is the management of AI services and machine learning?

What is Managing Service Requests in the Age of AI and Machine Learning? Image result AISM often referred to as AITSM, is the application of artificial intelligence (AI) to service management. Other phrases include AI service management as well as AI-driven service management. Machine learning is used by internet search engines, spam-filtering email programs, recommendation websites, banking programs that identify questionable transactions, and many mobile applications like speech recognition. There are many more potential uses for the technology, some with higher stakes than others. Future developments will significantly impact society and could help the UK economy. Machine learning algorithms can be classified into four categories: supervised, semi-supervised, unsupervised, and reinforcement learning. An emerging strategy called AISM seeks to address the growing problems with conventional IT service management solutions. In this second article in my series on artificial intelligence and service management, I will pro­vide a concrete example, name­ly, using AI to help manage service requests and other support re­quests from service con­sumers. In this post, A Model of Artificial Intelligence in a Service System. Let me first set the stage by discussing service management more generally. Many parts of planning, deploying, operating, and enhancing services can be supported by artificial intelligence. Here are some applications that could be advantageously enhanced with AI components. Let me first set the stage by discussing service management more generally. Many parts of planning, deploying, operating, and improving services can be supported by artificial intelligence. Here are some applications that could be advantageously enhanced with AI components:

  • Locating service possibilities within market environments
  • enhancing the design of intricate service systems
  • Enhancing the way that service systems operate, such as reducing the amount of energy that a data centre uses
  • Testing of service systems automatically
  • Automated replacement of service system parts
  • Automated service request classification
  • The detection of operational risks
  • Finding problems
  • Recognising potential causes
  • Dividing up customers
  • Examining the feelings of service users, especially those who are requesting help and customers
  • Service optimisation to enhance customer satisfaction 

Specifying the AI's Goals

First and foremost, the AI's scope needs to be specified and limited. Let's say you want to enhance how service users' requests are handled. At the current level of technology, it is impossible to create an AI with the goal of "managing service user requests." However, you can break down that management into specific tasks. There's a chance that AI may be used to automate some of those activities. It frequently happens that duties are not adequately delegated to teams. Large amounts of waste and unsatisfied customers and suppliers may arise from this. The categorising of service requests is thus an illustration of such a task. What issue do organisations seek to resolve? On the basis of technology, the service provider is frequently set up into teams of specialists. As a result, there are experts in networks, servers, clients, databases, applications, etc. I ignore the possibility that such a structure would be incredibly ineffective in managing the flow of work.

What is the risk to service consumers of a misclassified request? 


A rigorously structured or tightly coupled system runs the danger of offering the incorrect service or having the provider try to fix the false issue. Both the consumer and the provider will be highly unsatisfied, and a significant amount of time and money will have been squandered. Misclassification is more likely to be caught in a buffered system before the customer receives the service. Therefore, the main risk is in increasing the lead time for providing the exemplary service. 

This risk also applies to the first scenario, where it would be significantly worse. We shall see that an AI produces probabilistic outcomes. To put it another way, every time it categorises a service request, it does so with a likelihood that the categorisation is accurate. Such errors can be quickly lay the first stone in an AI that is well controlled, and adjustments can be made to lower their chance. As a result, using AI for classification poses little danger to the user. The cost of developing the AI and its maturity is closely correlated with the risk to the supplier.

In conclusion, I have tried to instantiate my suggested model for applying AI in service management in this paper. I've selected a straightforward illustration that most service managers should be familiar with. The model's descriptions of each stage of an AI's existence have been addressed in some detail, providing examples of the underlying concepts. It is now up to you to use those same concepts in other situations where AI could assist you in managing and delivering your services more effectively.
