Leverage new technologies to build value for your organization.

What You'll Learn

Artificial intelligence (AI) has captured the attention of business leaders, scientists, and engineers worldwide. Across industries leaders are seeking ways to create value through machine learning and other frontier technologies.

Companies like Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Alibaba have made commercial strides into AI—from smart bots to facial recognition to semantic analysis. Others like GE and Siemens are dedicating a large share of R&D to the AI-fueled industrial Internet.

If framed correctly, the opportunities for smart applications abound. For example, there’s potential to mitigate climate change via autonomous transportation, or develop better preventative healthcare through predictive modeling.

This program is designed to teach the management and application of artificial intelligence in the global business world.
