The practical application of Artificial Intelligence models and systems in the business world is now a reality. During the last few years, Artificial Intelligence has been an increasingly, concrete and comprehensive application in many application domains. Despite this, its introduction in business environments has been somewhat selective, being gradually absorbed in various aspects of business management, with particular impact in the areas of automation and improvement of production processes, investment and risk management, business communication plans, establishing of effective customer relationships, operational assistance and support, cybersecurity, and intensive data analysis, among many other things.
AI tools, such as ChatGPT, Bard, Stable Diffusion or DALL-E, are recognized today as essential instruments for supporting intensive data searching preparation and analysis in a large diversity of domains, including the most traditional ones, such as business. Data has today new and sophisticated models, instruments and artifacts to deal with it, in a very simple, fast and efficient way. Data represents a critical aspect of the life of an, contributing to a more competitive environment on how their activity will function. Generated data allows organizations to know how business is evolving, supporting critical decision-making processes not only at the operational level but also at the tactical and strategic levels. However, the analysis of data, in all its diversity, imposes several changes related not only to the diverse data formats available in real-world scenarios but also to the amount of data available.
Additionally, business needs are more volatile and unpredictable. Requirements change fast and need proper strategic reactions. All this contributes to the development of new approaches, technologies, and models to ingest, process and analyze data not only using statistical methods but also using Artificial Intelligence solutions for identifying and discovering new knowledge that contributes to business growth and improvement. This workshop promotes the most advanced research on innovative techniques and models for storing, processing and analyze data using disruptive approaches to knowledge engineering and decision-making systems, appealing to the use of Artificial Intelligence models and techniques in their implementation and development, giving particular attention to all solutions using the most recent Generative Artificial Intelligence approaches.
