Artificial Intelligence: Implications For Business Strategy

Overview:

Introduction:

Artificial intelligence (AI) has advanced from an unknown force to a universally recognized opportunity. With its innovative potential for business and society no longer being predicted but rather realized, business leaders need to attain a practical grounding in AI and its business applications, in order to efficiently take advantage of it and navigate the challenges associated with its implementation.

This program equips you with the knowledge needed to transform your organization into an innovative, efficient, and sustainable business of the future.

Through an engaging mix of key technologies, business insights, case examples, and your own business-focused project, you’ll explore the reality of central AI technologies and how they can be harnessed to support your business needs. Focusing on machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics, the program helps you understand the implications of these AI technologies for business strategy, as well as the economic, societal, and business implementation issues they raise. Additionally, the course will emphasize how the collective intelligence of people and computers together can solve business problems that not long ago were considered impossible.
