Introducing Inclus AI – Santa’s AI powered risk management 

We all know that it’s a busy time of year at Santa’s headquarters at Korvatunturi in the Polar Circle. Santa Claus is occupied with his final preparations for Christmas and his little helpers do their best to ensure that operations are running smoothly. 

It’s safe to say that Santa’s operations are faced with numerous risks – related to production, logistics and customer service, to name a few – both during Christmas and in the off-season. 

Despite recognizing these risks, Santa and his little helpers, are simply too busy to keep up with their risk management activities. Luckily, they reached out to our team at Inclus for help. To help Santa and his little helpers ensure a Merry Christmas, we developed Inclus AI – a set of new AI features in Inclus. 

Whether or not your operations are similar to Santa’s, we are confident that Inclus AI will serve as an exciting addition to your risk management process and help to spark ideas when identifying risks and planning mitigation measures. 

So how does it work?  

“In the first release, Inclus AI will provide you content suggestions. You can use it to generate new risk suggestions and risk mitigation actions. The new suggestions will take into account your already existing risks and actions, also helping you to identify possible gaps in your current approach” says Juha Törmänen, CTO at Inclus. 

In Santa’s use case, featured in the video below, Inclus AI provides Santa with risk suggestions for Christmas and the off-season. The generated suggestions can easily be added one-by-one to the risk registry. The suggestions are generated based on the risk category and existing risks, as well as the initial context defined in Inclus IA, which in this case is “Risk management analysis for Santa Claus during Christmas and off-season”. In similar fashion, Inclus AI is used in the Task Manager to suggest mitigation actions for the identified risks. 

The future of AI in Inclus 

“We are aiming to make Inclus AI as easy to use as possible – once you have it enabled you can generate AI suggestions and analyses with a press of a button. On the backend, we use some of the leading international AI frameworks to ensure that you get back high-quality answers no matter what your use case is” Törmänen says. 

AI has the potential to make it much easier to identify new risks and mitigation measures, and to group and analyze collected information. ”With Inclus AI, we hope to minimize the amount of repetitive or trivial work risk managers need to do, and let them focus on the parts that still remain in the domain of human intellect – making conclusions and decisions based on the data. What we have developed so far is only the beginning. Later on, we plan to upgrade Inclus AI with textual and quantitative analysis capabilities, so that you can summarize gathered comments and focus on the most relevant quantiative information in your project.” Törmänen continues.

Inclus is starting limited trials of Inclus AI at the beginning of 2023. Contact our sales or customer success team for a demo or additional details.  

“Early 2023 will be spent on fine-tuning our AI models and ensuring they handle Inclus use cases reliably and provide high quality outputs. As Inclus AI matures, we will start to move the features to broader use within Inclus, at which point the AI capabilities in your Inclus process will depend on your license specific use case” Törmänen concludes.
