Two years ago, when Google’s AlphaGo computer system beat Ke Jie, the world’s best player of the 2,500-year-old game called Go, the world sat up and took notice of the power of artificial intelligence. Among those who quietly committed to boosting their AI strengths was Iris Software. Industry-wide, peer-level recognition of its AI and related capabilities came with the 2018 Kaizen Awards, bestowed by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
Three of five participating Iris Software teams had won Gold awards in CII’s 2018 Kaizen Competition in the areas of Robotics Process Automation, DevOps and Machine Learning. (Kaizen, a Japanese concept, is a system of continuous improvement in quality, technology, processes, company culture, productivity, safety and leadership.)
The CII honors last year were no mean achievement: Sixty companies participated, presenting 125 case studies. Iris teams won the awards in the categories of Innovative, Reactive and Proactive.
