Living with Artificial Intelligence

Volume 2, 2017

The robots are coming! Correction, they’re already here. Now humans have to figure out a way to harness not just the mindless robots we’ve grown accustomed to over the years, but to ones that – thanks to artificial intelligence (AI) – are increasingly having a mind of their own. Depending on where you stand on the issue of AI, the thought of robots that can think for themselves can either be a scary or exciting prospect.

The debate rages and the questions are far from few. Will today’s smart robots steal jobs away from humans, and if so are we doing enough to educate the global workforce for this shift? Which countries are more likely to benefit from AI, and in what industries? How can AI transform the automotive, healthcare and financial services sectors?  What opportunities will AI bring for investors and entrepreneurs?

In this Cover Story we tap into the wealth of knowledge available from CEIBS faculty, alumni and industry experts affiliated with the school.  Read on for more in:-
