3 Innovative ways Excel harnesses Artificial Intelligence
Excel is a powerful calculation engine and offers a host of tools to spin data into valuable intelligence for companies. Excel now incorporates the power of artificial intelligence (AI) so that you can process data faster, make better decisions and do more with less.
Here are 3 new AI features released in Excel in 2018
Ideas: AI powered intelligent insights
One of the most difficult parts of converting data into insights is deciding what to do with the data. Now, you can proactively browse suggestions that are tailored to the task at hand. In Excel, Ideas can be used to find trends, spot outliers and identify patterns in the data. You can sort through different data analysis options in seconds. Activate Ideas by using the lightning bolt icon in Excel. For more tips and tricks on how to use Ideas for your needs, view this article here.
Import Data from Photos with a few clicks
Manual data entry is tedious and opens the door for human error to interfere with the integrity of the data. If you are an Android mobile device user (smartphone or tablet), you can now use your device to snap a photo of a data table and directly covert the analogue information to an Excel spreadsheet. This dramatically cuts down the time it takes to move data from one area to another and also frees up your energy to focus on the real task at hand, interpreting the data for actionable insights.
Processing speed upgrades: LOOKUP and MATCH functions
VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP and MATCH are some of the most used functions in Excel. With data becoming more and more valuable, data sets are expanding exponentially. Excel has upgraded the ability of these well known functions to process large volumes of data. Instead of it taking minutes to compute these functions, Excel is now able to complete its regressions in mere seconds so that you have the data you need in the blink of an eye.
