The COVID-19 pandemic has perplexed data scientists and creators of machine learning tools as the sudden changes in consumer behaviour has made predictions based on historical data very difficult. While these challenges could shake our perception of what machine learning is, they might also foster the development of tools that could automatically adjust.

When it comes to predicting demand or consumer behaviour, there is nothing in the historical data that resembles what we saw during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, models based on historical data tried to reproduce what is normal and failed to give accurate predictions.

AI is not just a tool for scientists to develop a new medicine, or for researchers to beat humans at chess, but something that impacts all of us, every day. Throughout Covid-19, AI has been optimising the schedules of the vans that deliver your groceries or suggesting you what to watch on Netflix. But what actually is it? And what else can it do for us?

Artificial intelligence originated as an umbrella term in the 1960s, as various scientific communities began studying the first artificial neural networks. The now-famous Turing test…


Earlier this year, Satalia Lithuania fully integrated into the Satalia family after the London-based AI system developer acquired the Lithuanian company in 2019. Just like in every integration project, bringing two companies together required some effort to account for the change and uncertainty in the day-to-day lives of the staff. This experience collected from the integration process is particularly useful in the face of the unprecedented lockdown period, where the merger had to be carried out while adjusting for an unusual pandemic-related situation.

Last spring, Satalia acquired Data Dog, a Lithuanian development company with more than 40 software developers, project…

Verslui migruojant nuo statiškų hierarchijų į organiškesnes struktūras, darbuotojų tarpusavio ryšiai tampa vis aktualesni. Kolegos patarimo kreipiasi ne į kompetentingiausią bendradarbį, o į jiems patogiausią, artimiausių asmenį. Įmonėse egzistuoja skirtingų ryšių kategorijos: profesiniai-instrumentiniai ryšiai bei draugiški-socialiniai ryšiai.

Bendrovėms prisitaikyti prie kintančios aplinkos bei diegti pokyčius sekasi sklandžiau, kai apie pasikeitimus komandą informuoja nuomonės lyderiai. Tyrimai rodo, kad įmonės lyderiais, kurių požiūris formuoja bendrąją nuomonę, nebūtinai yra vadovai.

Laura Weis, Satalia sprendimų architektė, verslo psichologė, tyrinėjanti darbuotojų tarpusavio ryšius įmonėse ir taikanti ONA metodologiją (angl. Organisational Network Analysis, ONA) sako, kad kiekvienam verslui naudinga iš arčiau pažinti komandą ir išsiaiškinti, kokie darbuotojai įmonėje yra sukaupę ekspertinę patirtį, kurie specialistai kitų kolegų akyse yra neformalūs lyderiai ir pan. …
