Artificial Intelligence is rapidly shaping the future of industry, government, and society. Harnessing AI for Breakthrough Innovation and Strategic Impact will help you explore the power and potential of this transformative technology, what it means for your organization, and how to leverage it to gain a competitive edge.

This interdisciplinary and experiential AI program from Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) will demystify AI technologies and provide strategies and frameworks to help your organization innovate and take the lead.

Faculty members from Stanford GSB, Engineering, Law School, Medical School, and School of Humanities and Sciences will come together to share their research and strategic insights on artificial intelligence and its impact. This holistic approach will help you examine how computers and people can collectively solve business problems.

In this program, you’ll get an overview of AI technologies from machine learning to fully autonomous systems. You’ll discover how companies are currently using AI, practice design thinking to imagine how AI can be applied in the workplace, and weigh the ethical and societal implications. And, you’ll brainstorm and share ideas for implementing AI in your own organization.

There’s no better place to learn about innovative approaches to artificial intelligence than on the Stanford GSB campus, in the heart of Silicon Valley. This AI program delivers a powerful combination of technological expertise and business innovation you simply won’t find anywhere else.
