What you will learn

This dynamic, one-day course explores the past, present and future of Artificial Intelligence (AI): how it has developed, how it is currently being used and how it is expected to develop in the future.

The course will give delegates an increased understanding of AI by demystifying the key technical concepts and relating them to real life. With this foundation, delegates will engage in active debates about the current commercial and social issues surrounding AI. After the course, delegates will be able to apply these debates to their working lives, transforming themselves into proactive harnessers of AI rather than passive observers of it.

Who should attend

This course will be of benefit to finance managers and business professionals who want to get beyond the popular media coverage to understand more about what AI really is. It is particularly useful for leaders and managers seeking to develop a deeper awareness of the potential impact of AI on their business.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

  • The concept of Artificial Intelligence has a rich history in science fact and science fiction. The course begins by exploring that history and charting the transition from attempting to replicate human traits to developing a mind that exceeds human capabilities.

The impact of Big Data on AI

  • The advent of Big Data has created a revolutionary opportunity for AI. The technological and social advances that have enabled Big Data will be discussed and then related to AI through the concepts of machine learning and deep learning.

The commercial potential of AI

  • The current reality of AI will be illustrated using real-life examples from education, transport, healthcare, retail, policing and politics. These examples will allow a list to be created of tangible commercial benefits of AI as well as specific risks and obstacles that need to be addressed.

A vision of the future

  • AI has always attracted controversy, and current manifestations of this controversy will be debated. This will take the form of an exploration of general issues of data protection, ethics and security, as well as consideration of the impact on specific job roles.
