Alumni event: On the right track to fuel growth - Henley Business School Finland

On the right track to fuel growth – AI insights from current business

Date: 04 April 2019


Time: 16:30 - 19:30

Itämerenkatu 5, 00180 Helsinki

In line with this semester’s topic on artificial intelligence (AI), this follow-on event from the AGM’s strategic viewpoint on AI provides an insight into the business position. Organised as a company visit, we will learn more about the concrete steps private enterprises are undertaking and review the current market and industry situation.

While the hype curve of AI might arguably have reached its peak, true AI implementations are still rare. Experts talk about ‘narrow AI’, the current application capable of and limited to delivering only one request at a time and where the main focus lies on machine learning, data mining and analysis. ‘Full AI’ does not yet enjoy consistent academic and business views, however trends are developing and the benefits of implementing ‘full AI’ can be substantial. As this development progresses, questions arise: where will it lead to, what will happen to workplaces as we know them, what will be the financial and social cost? Both, AI business providers and their buyers are making strategic selections with regard to priorities and focus areas for AI development.

Through snapshots of current academic thinking, future vision and actual case studies, participants will gain up-to-date business insights into applied AI. Other important take-aways include concrete experiences and examples through the networking part and thus an open peer-to-peer sharing of experiences.
