Work and Leadership in An Age of AI and Robotics - Phnom Penh
Join Prof. Jones in Phnom Penh!
In recent years, you have been hearing more about Robotics, “Big Data” and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and their capabilities to transform business decision-making. At minimum, automation technologies put enormous pressure on firms to keep innovating. But what are their wider implications for leadership and management?
This session will look at how these technologies are already being applied in fields like Retailing, Finance, Consulting, the Law, Journalism and Medicine. It will then seek to answer questions like, “What have we learned about good management in this ‘Brave New World’? How do these technologies change optimal team structure and behavior? What are the implications for societies and nations? In other words, what do we already know about making best use of teams as the impact of Robotics, Big Data and AI spread?”
