The first INSEAD forum on the rise and impact of AI & Machine Learning in Business and Society

AI is rapidly emerging as the most important and transformative technology of our time. Recent advances in machine learning have led to multiple new applications that are reshaping business, management and society. Today, AI can perform many human activities with greater accuracy and at a fraction of the time.

AI can also offer a substitute for human judgement as it forecast based on data patterns undetectable by humans. These features are not only creating new business opportunities for small and big businesses but also changing the way leadership and employees deliver value to their company.
Stay ahead of the game. Join the INSEAD AI Forum.

  • Demystifying AI
    Today, AI encompasses multiple technologies including Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Machine Vision, Natural Language Processing, etc. Gain a better understanding of these technologies: how they emerge, how they work, what problems they solve and cannot solve yet, why Machine Learning is a big deal and what the next AI is.

  • Neuroscience Meets AI: Leveraging Computational Neuroscience for Business Applications
    Computational neuroscience has the potential to enhance the “intelligence” in AI by plugging in what we know about the human brain. However, it is important to separate “neuro-reality” from “neuro-hype.” Learn how businesses can leverage this type of smart AI for different types of business decisions.

Hilke Plassmann, INSEAD Chaired Professor of Decision Neuroscience

Coffee Break

10:50-11:10

  • The Fourth Human Revolution
    Will AI be the best or the worst thing for humanity? Is it a form of alchemy, alien technology, autonomous weapon of mass destruction, generating vast unemployment and huge income inequalities or a tool to create a utopian world of abundance where robots take over all repetitive/boring work allowing us to pursue our intellectual interests? To answer the question, we will travel through the fourth human revolution and the rise of Intelligence Augmentation (IA).

Spyros Makridakis, INSEAD Emeritus Professor of Decision Sciences and Director of the Institute For the Future (IFF) at the University of Nicosia

11:10-11:50
