How AI revolutionizes business strategy

Kenneth Cukier (The Economist)
16:35–17:15 Thursday, 2/06/2016
Location: Capital Suite 4

For centuries, the decisions made in a company were the responsibility of the top managers. But when firms harness AI and big data, algorithms can make millions more decisions in the same time, and probably better ones. Kenneth Cukier explores how this affects the ways that companies are organized and how they compete and set strategy (as opposed to just execution) as he outlines what is happening now and what to expect in the future.
