Dealing with AI in organisations

EXECUTIVE FORUM 2019 / A.I. & BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT / LUGANO KEYINSIGHTS #1

During the Executive Forum in Lugano participants looked at AI and its impact on organisations and society. They have explored the potentialities of AI as well as the risks. Here are some key insights that emerged from speakers’ inputs and participants’ contributions.

UNDERSTAND HOW AI CAN IMPROVE OUR LIVES

Even with AI, there are so many capabilities which are still exclusive to humans. Clarify where you can automate the job through machines, and which human tasks you should value more.

 

DO NOT TALK ABOUT AI, TALK ABOUT PROBLEMS

Instead of focusing on AI it is better to think how to improve your business. AI nowadays is like Computer Science: you use it to solve problems, you do not focus on it.

 

IT'S IMPORTANT TO INVEST IN (RE)TRAINING

Like cyber-security, AI is something which should be understood at any organisational level, to better integrate this technology in your company.

 

BE FLEXIBLE AND ADAPTABLE TO CHANGES

In this age, it is more important to have a mindset which is ready to change rather than to have a wide knowledge specifically on AI.

 

RESULTS COME FIRST, EVEN WITH AI

AI may be an amazing science, but never trust it blindly. Learn how to measure its results and follow only the reliable applications.
