What you'll learn

  • Understand why and how AI changes the relationship between people and organizations
  • Explore the biggest risks—and opportunities—for business in the age of AI
  • Learn operating principles, recommendations, and best practices for designing innovative, engaging, and ethical products, services, and brand experiences


In the next five years, machine intelligence will become ubiquitous, and technology innovations, such as the internet of things (IoT), chatbots, and augmented reality, will proliferate. We’ll increasingly interact with devices via talk and text, on a range of devices and locations, often determined and delivered by machine learning algorithms. As a result, artificial intelligence (AI) will shape our experiences with companies, products, and services in unprecedented ways.

Susan Etlinger explores how AI fundamentally changes the relationship between people and businesses, lays out its risks and opportunities, and demonstrates emerging best practices for designing customer-centric and ethical products and services. More than anything, business leaders today should begin to treat AI as fundamental to the customer experience. This means thinking about the values it perpetuates as an essential and eventually indistinguishable expression of product, services, and brand.
