Module assignments


Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly emerging as the most important and transformative digital technology of our time. Recent advances have led to a rapid proliferation of new approaches that are changing the competitive landscape for companies in almost all industries. Therefore an understanding of this technology is indispensable for future managers

Upon completion of this module students therefore possess basic knowledge of the conceptual and technological foundations of AI and its strategic implications for companies. They can distinguish different types of machine learning as core enablers of AI (e.g., deep learning, neural networks). They are able to formulate strategies for using AI to create value in companies and to apply the appropriate tools and techniques. Students are familiar with the limitations, pitfalls and possible countermeasures when using AI. They are capable of discussing the societal, ethical and legal implications of the use of AI in business.

During the course, the students are divided into heterogeneous teams of 3-6 students. Within these teams they will learn to develop their own strategy to use AI to solve a real business problem. Finally, the teams will compete with their solution against the solutions of the other teams in a pitch towards the company's stakeholders.
