Artificial Intelligence is the focal principle for the disruptive changes of the forthcoming Industrial Revolution. The introduction of AI brought about the idea of a fault-free world. It is gradually presenting itself in all the sectors to decrease human interventions and give accurate and swift outcomes, and the publishing industry is nowhere behind. A wide range of publications are already fusing Artificial Intelligence into their practices. UniTouch developed by Thomson Digital is an Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning powered publishing production workflow management platform that would enhance the efficiency of the publishing operations. Here’s how AI acts as a key element in boosting the publishing production workflow.

Automating Laborious Tasks

Production workflow involves numerous tasks and activities in various segments including content organizing & tagging, proof reading, linguistic error refinement, completeness & usability checks, copy-editing, XML parsing, validations, graphic enhancement, quality assurance and so on. The processing of these many tasks require a colossal amount of workforce and an elaborate timeline. Automating these operations would help in reducing manual interventions and thus, faster timelines and freeing up authors for more important work.

Achieving Incredible Accuracy

The publishing industry is surrounded around the word accuracy. Higher the words convey the message, higher the credibility the author sustains. And providing error-free content for publishing has increasingly become a tedious task for authors. The process of copy-editing and proof reading provide a door front to authors to enhance the accuracy of the content. Artificial Intelligence adds an extra edge to the operations which enhance the efficiency and accuracy of the tasks by reducing human errors.

Adding Intelligence to operations

Operations form a crucial element for any business organization. They require huge amounts of physical as well as mental efforts to enhance the efficiency of various processes and thus when the need for artificial intelligence in these operations rises. AI not only diminishes human physical interventions from the system but also adds human intelligence to the operations. The AI-based software is capable enough to understand the instructions provided by the user and provide efficient outcomes.

Minimized Operational Cost

Every business aims at attaining optimized outcomes while curtailing minimized costs. Human resources form a giant part of the operation’s budget while the outcome from the resources is comparatively less. Adding Artificial Intelligence to business operations helps in minimizing the costs as it would require the least amount of human as well as other resources.

Real-time Updates

Artificial Intelligence integrated in the software provides real-time updates that help in attaining time-to-time updates about the workflow. Such that in case of any hindrances in the workflow, the issue can be resolved immediately thus maintaining the delivery timeline. Automated real-time updates also helps in analyzing and enhancing the efficiency of the team.
