Description

Competing in the Age of AI

With Marco Iansiti and Karim Lakhani


"Iansiti and Lakhani have written an important book that explains what's required to rethink the firm and become an AI-first company. Anyone interested in the impact of AI should read this book."

-- Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft

Our global economy is being transformed by a new generation of companies built on digital networks, data and AI. In Competing in the Age of AI, Harvard Business School Professors Marco Iansiti and Karim Lakhani show how companies can rethink the way to operate in this new era. Deploying even relatively simple AI across the enterprise to enable operating processes can remove growth constraints, crushing traditional limits on scale, scope, and even learning, eclipsing traditional managerial methods.

Along with major strategic advantages, however, this new generation of AI-based firms is also generating major new challenges, from widespread algorithmic bias, to the amplification of false information. Responding to this transformation involves rearchitecting how traditional firms work and driving major changes in traditional sectors of the economy.

On Monday 17 February Iansiti and Lakhani will join us in London to share their research on hundreds of enterprises from the United States, Europe and Asia. To help companies move toward a strategy built around AI, they present a framework for rethinking how companies function – redesigning both their business and operating models. They will describe how the digital firm works with decisions powered by software, data, and algorithms, which they call the “AI factory”, and its implications for management and strategy. They conclude by covering the impact on competition and implications for training and shaping the latest generation of AI-savvy business leaders.
