Robot CEO: Your next boss could run on code

#artificialintelligence

At the time it was predicted that it might take another hundred years until computers would beat top human players at the boardgame Go. But a few days ago, Google's AlphaGo beat the world's champion Go player in a five-game series. Business books and management consultants commonly list six functions that a CEO is responsible for: determine the strategic direction, allocate resources, build the culture, oversee and deliver the company's performance, be the face of the company, and juggle with everyday compromises. Human managerial decisions will switch focus to the "why" rather than the "how" as data-driven decisions slowly creep from scheduling to resource allocation to performance measurement and reporting, and finally to daily management tasks.
