  • DATA AND AI ARE CHANGING THE WAY ORGANIZATIONS THINK, DECIDE, AND ORGANIZE. IT’S TIME HUMANITIES, MANAGEMENT AND SOCIAL SCIENCES GET INVOLVED.
  • THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF AI IN BUSINESSES IS NOT THE LACK OF DATA SCIENTISTS, BUT THE LACK OF LEADERS TRAINED IN AI.
  • AUGMENTED INTELLIGENCE STARTS WITH PEOPLE, NOT TECHNOLOGY.
