Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Automation

The Daisy Partner Ecosystem – delivering AI Services and Automation Solutions

Get in Touch


The profile of automation, and now AI, has been raised massively by the strides in capability seen in generative AI over the last couple of years.

Generative AI will greatly impact product development, customer experience, employee productivity and innovation delivering cost reduction through automation, provide enhanced customer profiling and allow enhanced decision-making through sophisticated data analysis.

As a result, every business is asking the question “How can we take advantage of this technology?”, but many organisations have only just begun the journey and, in a complex landscape, it is difficult to take that first step confidently. Every project has different requirements, and the plethora of tools and methods can be daunting.


Please share any specific areas of interest:


Whether automation, predictive AI or generative AI is your target outcome, the program lifecycle should always start with an identification of the business objectives, progressing through use case definitions, data acquisition and preparation before tooling, implementation and delivery is undertaken.

Daisy can help. From the initial engagement to understand the business outcomes and perceived challenges, through use case assessments, data preparation and platform delivery, we have a partner ecosystem gathered from across the IT industry to help organisations of all sizes and aspirations.

Artificial intelligence


While there are many categories of perceived artificial intelligence, from simple rules-based systems at one end of the spectrum, right through to self-aware systems at the other, there are three definitions to consider. These are automation, predictive AI and generative AI.

Programmed to respond to specific inputs with predetermined actions and based on predefined rules and patterns, automation models excel at highly repetitive tasks requiring speed and accuracy.

These systems however are not “intelligent” and simply follow these predefined rules.

Typical use cases might include business process automation or robotic control in closed environments,

Predictive AI
Making use of machine learning algorithms and statistical techniques to analyse historical data, identify patterns, and make predictions about future outcomes or events, predictive AI aims to forecast trends, behaviours, or events based on patterns observed in past data.

The use cases are broad and are seen in financial forecasting, predictive maintenance, personalised healthcare, consumer marketing, inventory management and logistics amongst many others.

Generative AI
Using machine learning techniques to create new data derived from the underlying patterns and structures present in training data, generative AI allows the creation of new text, images, and other outputs from patterns learnt from previous information.

Uses include the generation of documentation to aid business processes, natural language text and speech for virtual assistants, the generation of novel chemical structures in the pharmaceutical industry, and imaging in the media sphere.
