Details on how AI has impacted their organisations is provided for better interpretation and understanding of the complexity of the problem being investigated. Additionally, logical and statistical approaches such as historical analysis were used to determine the trend of AI and its application on different industries since its development (Datamation.com). Quantitative methods were also used to systematically determine the trends of AI and its application. How AI has been applied by different companies was determined through quantitative approaches. The data was obtained by manipulating pre-existing statistical data using computational techniques using tools such as Microsoft Excel. The output was generalized to explain how AI has been used by different companies since its development, its contribution to technology improvements, its impacts as well as its effectiveness. The results are portrayed in a descriptive format to explain the findings of what was explored (Lee, 1990). 3.4 Data Sources and Generation The research relies on secondary sources such as scientific publications, specialized bulletins, periodicals, journals, magazines and other internet sources like companies’ websites which were considered as reliable sources. These sources would contain published information on AI and how it has been applied for best practice management 18

across different fields, including in the medical, finance, public relations and engineering industries. Each of these selected industries applies AI differently to perform different operations for faster and more accurate results. For instance, how AI applied in the medical field is different from how it has been applied in the engineering field. However, the end goal is to improve efficiency and make work easier and faster. Data was generated by evaluating different peer-reviewed journals that have published papers on AI and its application across medical, finance, public relations and engineering disciplines. These papers also provided recent trends in AI development. Websites of the targeted companies that have been using AI technology in operations were also provided information on how they have applied AI, its effectiveness and also some of its impacts. Trends as to when a chosen company incorporated AI in their activities were also generated from their company. This was used to explain a company’s past and current experience with AI. The future of AI could also be determined by providing threats and opportunities in different fields chosen for the purpose of this study. 3.5 Literature Review and Secondary Data The literature review in chapter 2 was used to serve as an introduction to research on AI. This involved reviewing relevant work that has been done on AI with regards to its development and application. The discussion of AI research spans from several fields including transportation, pharmacy, nursing, sales and marketing, among others.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
