Special Issue Information
We are witnessing the advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and it influence in business and society. AI has penetrated almost every aspect of our lives, directly or indirectly. In some sense, it has become a disruptive technology that threatens the old ways of doing things, from daily activities through smartphones and social media to transportation, health, education, management, decision-making and many more. For example, natural language processing and machine learning are advancing to the state that computer-generated speech is very close to human speech, and expert systems are highly regarded in businesses.
We are also witnessing businesses and societies adopting digital transformations, where the digitalization of business processes to improve customer experience is the focus. Digital transformation in businesses and societies was accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, as social or physical distance had to be accompanied by digital closeness. The use of smartphones to monitor the virus was a necessity, and advanced digital technologies should be incorporated into health monitoring applications (apps) that are run using smartphones. In reality, people are ready to be reached digitally through their smartphones or wearable devices, such as watches, glasses, hats, earphones, or even shoes. It is organizations that need to redesign their ways to effectively and efficiently reach people for mutual benefits.
Unlike the old approaches to developing digital processes or computerization, where inside-out is the driving force, digital transformation is different, when the driving force is outside-in, focusing on digitalization and improving conditions for stakeholders, especially user or customer experiences. The role of AI in digital transformations is obvious. It can help improve users’, customers’; or people's experience generally when they interact with digital interfaces by creating enjoyable or satisfying experiences.
This Special Issue aims to focus on important issues of the advancement or applications of AI in businesses and societies, especially regarding the roles of AI in their digital transformation.
