The Telfer MBA Conferences connect you with original thinkers whose ideas are transforming business and management in Canada and around the world. Do not miss this upcoming event.

Bad AI/Good AI: The Future of Artificial Intelligence

There has been a lot of recent buzz about artificial intelligence (AI). From forecasting, medical diagnostics, fraud prevention and sales to business innovation, AI is transforming the way we work.

However, recent examples of algorithms gone mad suggest that the race to implement AI systems could be leaving sound governance behind. According to MIT Sloan Management Review, 84% of enterprises believe investing in AI will lead to greater competitive advantage, but it's not clear that the potential disadvantages have been clearly addressed.

In this MBA Conference, we will discuss current and future applications of AI and responsible practices that can help your organization benefit from this powerful technology.
