Cool Tool: Rationale

Friday, June 30, 2023

A Deloitte study this year found that more than half of the 2,620 global business leaders surveyed planned to incorporate artificial intelligence in 2023. AI has become a prominent part of the workforce, and now, with some prompting, it can resolve indecision.

A tool called Rationale is designed to help business leaders make difficult decisions. Users simply enter a pending decision, and the generative pretrained transformer (GPT) works in tandem with in-context learning algorithms to generate a pros and cons list, a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis, and conduct either a multi-criteria or causal analysis.


Rationale's causal chain analysis feature provides up to three levels of outcomes in a tree-like structure, revealing potential consequences of the proposed decision. Users will also have access to a cost-benefit analysis that evaluates internal and external factors affecting their company.

As you continue to use the tool, the AI learns from your decision making, giving you a personalized experience.
