McGill’s Executive Institute Launches a Program to Demystify Artificial Intelligence

Published: 30 November 2018

November 28, 2018 - Montreal, Canada – With big data and AI ramping up, the McGill Executive Institute (MEI) at McGill University is launching an essential 2-day seminar focusing on Artificial Intelligence; what it is and how it can affect your business. The seminar, which will run at the beginning of December and then again in April, responds to a growing number of businesses that are looking to demystify how AI technology will change the way they operate.

Artificial Intelligence is coming and just as with any new technology, it is the early adopters and those with a quick learning curve that will realize the potential of it. The longer companies wait to understand the technology, the weaker their competitive position will be. Artificial Intelligence can change business models but a clear understanding of the issue is the starting point. This course explores what A.I really is, and what its current applications and future capabilities are. It also explores the economic implications of those capabilities, and how they can create and capture value from a strategic standpoint.

“This technology is going to revolutionize the way most industries operate and compete; we are going to be looking at how you can use the toolkit of Artificial Intelligence to improve the performance of your existing business models. From there we move on to how you can use A.I. to innovate within your business model or come up with an entirely new one.”

- Corey Phelps, Associate Dean Executive Programs – Desautels Faculty of Management
