An Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (AI)

'The topic of AI in organisations will become just as big – if not even bigger – than IT. We need an AI transformation just as we need a digital transformation' - Afke Schouten

We will all be aware of the term AI, but how many of us really understand it? We are constantly told that it is likely to change so many aspects of our future world and organisations. Yet what level of knowledge do we really have on the subject? Book your complimentary place below to get up to speed on the rapidly developing world of Artificial Intelligence.

Overview

Over the coming months IPI Academy and FutureWork Forum will be offering a series of interviews, presentations and round table discussions on today’s leading business challenges.

Our next event on the 10th of February will consist of a 60-minute engaging and thought provoking discussion with FWF Partner and AI expert, Afke Schouten, focusing on the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Afke is a consultant & director of studies for AI management and AI Operations at Zurich’s HWZ, business school. She is also Founder of AI Bridge by Building Bridges GmbH. 

We will all be aware of the term AI but how many of us really understand it? We are constantly told that it is likely to change so many aspects of our future world and organisations. Yet what level of knowledge do we really have on the subject?

Afke believes that for leaders and managers to fully understand AI and successfully realise its potential, AI literacy is required. This means understanding what AI is and how best to engage with the approach. Like all complex organisation change it also requires an understanding of what it takes to implement AI solutions to successfully transform organisations.

In this powerful conversation Afke will cover three fundamental aspects of Artificial Intelligence:

  • What AI is, and what it’s not!
  • Corporate case study examples of AI
  • The key success factors for any organisation looking to successfully implement AI

Following her presentation, Afke will then respond to questions from our participants. This will be facilitated by Future Work Forum partner & IPI Academy Faculty member Mark Thomas.

This is a great opportunity to develop your knowledge and understanding on a critical subject that has the potential to impact all of our organisations and businesses.

The FutureWork Forum is devoted to exploring the working world of tomorrow.
