Executive Speaker Series

Work and Leadership in An Age of AI and Robotics

In recent years, managers have been hearing more about Robotics, “Big Data” and AI, and their capabilities to transform business decision-making.

At the minimum, these technologies put enormous pressure on firms to keep innovating. But what are the wider implications for management?

This session will look at how these technologies are already being applied in fields like Retailing, Finance, Consulting, Law, Journalism, and Medicine. It will then seek to answer questions like, “What have we learned about good management in this ‘Brave New World’? How do these technologies change optimal team structure and behavior? In other words, what do we already know about making best use of teams as the impact of Robotics, Big Data, and AI spread?”
