Considering Composite AI:

Could not agree more, but I am seeing practitioners wanting to stay with pure 'AI/Machine Learning'. It stays with the 'magic' of AI.  When hybrid methods should be used.  Why?  Because the other methods are seen as dated?  And require quite different training.  Are just classic analytics?  In typical analytics these are called 'Ensemble Methods', often mentioned here, we used them often, see the tags below.

Composite AI: What Is It, and Why You Need It    Alex Woodie in DataNami

You might have noticed a new term, “composite AI,” floating around the cybersphere. Don’t worry–it’s not a complex new technology that you must master. In fact, while the term may be new, the core idea behind it is not. Nevertheless, it’s likely a technique that you should be thinking about incorporating in your enterprise AI processes.

Gartner helped put composite AI on the map last summer, when it published its 2020 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies. Simply put, Composite AI refers to the “combination of different AI techniques to achieve the best result,” according to Gartner. That’s it. Simple enough, right?

So, what other AI techniques could that mean? It’s important here to keep in mind that AI is a very broad term. While some might believe that AI refers to the latest, greatest deep learning and neural network algorithms, AI actually covers much more under its sizable umbrella.

Machine learning and deep learning are types of AI. But there are many other types of AI that should be in your wheelhouse that fall outside of the machine learning/deep learning bubble. That includes traditional rules-based systems, natural language processing (NLP), optimization techniques, and graph techniques, according to Gartner.

A composite AI system is to be built atop a “composite architecture,” which Gartner identified as its number one Hype Cycle trend for 2020. A composite architecture (you might have guessed) incorporates packaged business capabilities that run atop a flexible data fabric, thereby enabling users to take be flexible and adaptable amidst rapidly changing systems and requirements.   ...
