Put AI to Work: Managing with Machines

Transform complex business challenges into new opportunities with AI and machine learning.

If your firm hasn't yet developed an AI business strategy, it's not too late to start. The right combination of technology and talent is an ongoing challenge for all organizations, and even non-technical managers and directors can contribute to strategies for data analytics, AI, and machine learning that stays ahead of the competition. 

Rotman's Put AI to Work: Managing with Machines program provides you with practical insights from the TD Management Data and Analytics Lab on topics at the forefront of these emerging fields and their current applications. In two days, our expert faculty will help you leverage artificial intelligence and big data to set strategy and best practices, adapt your systems and manage talent to solve ever-more complex business challenges. 

This course is not technical and does not require programming knowledge or a computer science background. However, a familiarity with basic data interpretation will be helpful in our discussions. 

With the massive opportunities presented by AI, good leaders know that smart innovation will always involve humans. Pairing human-centric methods with AI tools will be very powerful no matter what your goals are, and we can help you get started. Our program incorporates design thinking to show you how to design AI systems that actually work.
