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.
