Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to be the most disruptive and transformative technology of our time. AI and machine learning promise almost limitless applications: from simple chatbots to self-driving cars; from automation in recruitment and financial services to detecting cancer; from reducing energy consumption to predicting vulnerabilities in software.

From the point of view of business leaders, the big questions are not around the technology but the strategic impact of AI. Where will AI disrupt the value chain and undermine existing business models? How can incumbents adapt? How do we create value from AI?

In this webinar, led by INSEAD’s Deputy Dean Peter Zemsky, we will draw together a panel of alumni practitioners and other experts to discuss:

  • Where AI investment is already working and generating novel benefits to customers or driving efficiency
  • Where AI has not had the expected impact
  • What the challenges are to execute AI strategies and how to overcome them
