Artificial Intelligence & Business Strategy


The Artificial Intelligence & Business Strategy initiative explores the growing use of artificial intelligence in the business landscape. The exploration looks specifically at how AI is affecting the development and execution of strategy in organizations.

The initiative researches and reports on how AI is spurring workforce change, data management, privacy, and cross-entity collaboration. It looks at new risks and threats in dependency, job loss, and security. And it seeks to help managers understand and act on the tremendous opportunity from the combination of human and machine intelligence.

Research and analysis for the initiative is in collaboration with and sponsored by Boston Consulting Group.
