What is the need for this course, and why will participants benefit from it?

AI promises to be the most disruptive class of technologies during the next 10 years. Global business value derived from artificial intelligence (AI) is projected to total $1.2 trillion in 2018, an increase of 70 percent from 2017, according to Gartner, Inc. AI-derived business value is forecast to reach $3.9 trillion in 2022 . Yet, to many people, AI is the domain of only very bright people with well-developed maths and computer science skills. But to take advantage of AI, leaders need to understand how to frame AI within their organisation and guide its implementation and use.

The aim of this course is to break down the complexities behind AI, make it accessible, and enable leaders to govern AI – regardless of their background.

This course will provide guidance for how to develop AI capacity across an organisation. It will explain the capabilities of AI, with examples of how it’s being used by forward thinking organisations. It will explore what leaders need to do to start their AI journey and how they can get the most out of this exceptionally disruptive technology. The course funnels thinking towards creating a practical, usable AI plan – something that leaders can use immediately.
