IESE has launched a new Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Management Initiative, a multidisciplinary project that will look at how artificial intelligence is impacting management, and will prepare executives to put Al to use in their companies in an ethical and socially responsible way. The initiative responds to growing interest worldwide in AI and its impact on people, work and society. Because AI is expected to touch every sphere of economic activity, managers must know how to adapt to the changing competitive landscape, be able to transform their organizations, and ensure that employees – and themselves -- have the skills required. IESE's new Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Management Initiative will meet those needs for research and education efforts by: "AI is as much a management challenge as it is a technological challenge," Dean Franz Heukamp said. "With this initiative we want to help current and future managers, as well as policy makers, face the challenges AI presents, enabling them to shape the ways AI is used and ensure that it's a force for good in society."
