Understanding How AI Will Impact Business

By Melanie Miller

Deputy Head of School - Business, Weymouth College

 

Explore the impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the business world.

 

Delegates will gain an understanding of the fundamentals of AI, its current and potential applications, and the implications of its widespread use.

 

Topics will include the practical uses of AI in business, such as automation, machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics. We will also explore the ethical implications of AI, such as data privacy and security, and the potential for job displacement.

 

Through discussions, and hands-on activities, delegates will gain a basic understanding of how AI is impacting the business world and the potential opportunities and risks that come with it.

 

After the talk, delegates should be able to think critically about how AI is shaping the future of business and how to best prepare for the changes that AI will bring.
