On Monday, a giant player Microsoft announced a business school in Artificial Intelligence (AI) towards an intention to help companies improve decision-making in integrating AI across their operations. Named INSEAD, which is a graduate business school with campuses in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, which includes an in-depth case studies about companies across many industries that have successfully transformed their businesses with the help of AI.
A series of short introductory videos provide overall study of the AI technologies driving change across industries, but the bulk of the content focuses on managing the impact of AI on company strategy, culture and responsibility, reported Microsoft.
"There is a gap between what people want to do and the reality of what is going on in their organizations today, and the reality of whether their organization is ready," said Mitra Azizirad, Corporate Vice President for AI marketing at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington.
"This school is a deep dive into how you develop a strategy and identify blockers before they happen in the implementation of AI in your organization," she added.
According to the analyst with market research firm CCS Insight, Nick McQuire, the company has surveyed over more than 50 per cent of the companies in researching, trialing, or implementing specific projects with AI and machine learning. However, very few are using AI across their organization and identifying business opportunities and problems that AI can address, he added.
