The importance of testing cognitive systems

The importance of testing cognitive systems
Published: 04 June 2018 (1715 Views)
As computer capabilities develop and advance, they take on greater responsibilities in society. After all, technology is now at the centre of everything. For example, cognitive systems have begun to play a key role in industry, changing the workspace in terms of efficiency and accessibility. They use automation to store and transmit information without needing manual input.

Consequently, occasional testing is essential to making sure everything is running smoothly without the need for round the clock surveillance. Companies such as Sogeti can make sure everything works properly, using a combination of high-end analytics services and digital assurance to get the job done adequately. Therefore, we've put together a brief article that should help you realise the importance of their testing.

Identifying Fraud

Fraud is everywhere. No business is immune from the risks, and those that fall victim to them rarely bounce back. It can take one bad decision or faulty system to send everything into meltdown, and assets and finances can trickle through the drain soon after. Of course, implementing and testing cognitive systems can build a big wall around what you want to protect.

For example, voice recognition software can ensure that only the appropriate personnel have access to certain computers or files. Additionally, facial recognition can work to the same end. In the end, streamlining security in this fashion can tailor how a company conducts its business, making sure the right people are in the know. If nothing else, lost passwords become a thing of the past. Ultimately, testing cognitive systems is important in this regard, safeguarding companies and their staff.

Productivity and Accessibility

Time is money. Any company wants to complete objectives as quickly as possible so that it can move on to the next big thing. With so much opportunity and so little time, it’s important that any task is met confidently and swiftly tackled. Moreover, perhaps some staff aren't computer literate? Perhaps others are slow to type on the keyboard, or have endless admin to perform?

Of course, automation streamlines the grind, and cognitive systems can carry out a great deal of most kinds of legwork. Whether it’s mundane admin toil or a repetitive work cycle that detracts from company time, automation can recycle the faff and get it all done at a quality standard. Additionally, it is also equipped with the potential to support disabled workers through the speech recognition capabilities. Ultimately, it's a helping hand, and one that should be regularly tested to boost its overall efficiency.
