We’re at a new age, an age where artificial intelligence is becoming the most influential General Purpose Technology, a technology that once arrived, is poised to morph all aspects of our lives, irreversibly. Artificial Intelligence (AI) rapidly moves into the mainstream, supported by emerging capabilities in Machine Learning, Data, Cloud and Quantum Computing. AI is already generating greater efficiencies, greater precision and personalization, and at times, greater creative output than humans. And with this growing capacity, there grow questions regarding the business value of AI, the future of work, societal implications of deploying this technology, and of course, new and intriguing ethical considerations.

This course will introduce you to some of the central disruptive Artificial Intelligence developments, concepts, and considerations, and will address the future of work as we lead and transform/evolve/sustain AI-enabled businesses. The course does not require any technical knowhow of AI. We will focus on the strategic, organizational and managerial implications of AI and how they can be applied in the context of organizations, rather than on the technical dimensions of the technology

The following agenda is a sample and subject to change.

9:00 - 10:30 am ET: Session 1: Introduction: The emergence of a new business model

  • Digitization efforts enable structuring data that in turn make the deployment of AI possible. Such tech capabilities underpin a new business model whereby a company is looking to personalize its offerings while also enter a set of ecosystem relationships (…in order to develop and/or gain access to multiple capabilities with which to personalize value to end users). We’ll discus the competitiveness of this new business model and the steps companies take to shift and adopt such new and cutting-edge strategic focus.

10:30 - 10:45 am ET: Break

10:45 - 12:15 pm ET: Session 2: Mapping The growing presence and impact of AI across industries:

12:15 - 1:15 pm ET: Lunch Break

1:15 - 2:45 pm ET: Session 3: Work and AI - what has happened thus far

  • What is AI’s current state of art and impact. AI is viewed as a force that will retire a massive number of people from the workforce. How do organizations approach these talent dilemmas is the focus of discussion for this session. (+ a side note on the aging of the world and how this issue further exacerbates the use of AI and robotics across tasks/ jobs and geographies).

2:45 - 3:00 pm ET: Break

3:00 - 4:30 pm ET: Session 4: New forms/models of work are emerging

    10:45 - 12:15 pm ET: Session 6: Talent considerations for the AI- enabled organization
