After completing the program, you will be equipped to better understand and lead the data scientists and groups that produce AI tools.

Faculty members from across Stanford University will come together to share their research and strategic insights on artificial intelligence, big data, and their impact on our greater society. This holistic approach will enable you to analyze critical real-world problems and apply methodologies to your own team and organizations.
