Hot off the press: Artificial Intelligence (AI) – AI&U: Translating Artificial Intelligence in Business by Christian Ehl and Sharad Gandhi. AI is an increasingly “hot” topic these days. Christian Ehl and Sharad Gandhi participated on our 30 November 2016 AGBC Exchange II panel discussion that addressed: “Innovation – Advances in Digitization, Digitalization and New Business Models.” They have now published their new book AI&U which is now available on Amazon (hardcopy or Kindle version). Christian and Sharad will be featured at our 29 Nov 2017 AGBC Exchange II when they address “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Implications for Economic Inequality.”
Summary: “The next technology to create the biggest and widest impact on all aspects of our lifestyle, industries, and society has arrived. It is Artificial Intelligence (AI) with its newly acquired magic of Machine Learning. AI is the next big thing and will greatly transform businesses. AI is inevitable. Its progress and disruptive power is evidenced in a number of areas – like Apple Siri, IBM Watson and Tesla cars. The use of AI for future competitiveness and survival is a must.” “What is AI? What does it do? How does it work? Where can it be applied? This book sets out to demystify AI and help you and your company to harness its unique power to smarten and uplift your business. The time to capitalize on AI is now.”
In the process of writing the book Christian and Sharad have talked to a number of AI experts in Europe, USA and Asia, business leaders and non-technical people about AI. With their research and discussions exploring the width and depth of the subject, they have encapsulated many interesting insights, not just about AI, but also on its applications and on how our natural human intelligence works.
