Data Management and Business Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Strategy for Business Professionals

Why Attend

Society and organizations are creating petabytes of data, and with Artificial Intelligence (AI) we can put that data to work in order to improve well-being, increase revenue and reduce costs. With modern technology we can use internal and external, structured and unstructured data and apply Artificial Intelligence to bring new possibilities to make predictions, improve decision making, improve company performance and augment human capabilities.

However, this new field of science comes with new terminologies and technologies. But it is not just about data and technology. To really create business value with AI you need to scale up from isolated Proof of Concepts to a coherent approach and prepare the organization for effective use of AI. That needs a vision to define the best opportunities for AI to support the business, it needs a framework to understand which capabilities in the organization have to improve, and an implementation strategy to know what to do where and when.

This course provides participants with the AI literacy to be the business AI leader in their organizations, to understand AI concepts and use cases, to converse on a qualified level with the data specialists, to create an AI strategy and develop an AI ready organization, to know how to set up and run an AI project and to assess the make or buy decision of tooling.
