Panel Discussion

AI adoption in the enterprise. How behavioral science plays role in driving the change?

Implementation of advanced analytics and artificial intelligence requires organizations to change skill sets, tools, processes, and information systems. The most successful companies also achieve an overall change in mindsets and expectations. However, AI alone can neither explain nor ensure particular choices and behaviors – let alone guarantee the desired outcomes. Driving effective change depends on effective communication, which in turn depends on understanding how the audience will receive the message. That communication challenge is further complicated by the speed, volume, and complexity of the data and analytics.

This panel will discuss how to meet the challenge with behavioral science – to assess the mental models and emotional underpinnings that frame and influence people’s decisions and to design communications and engagements accordingly.

Algorithms to Live By

All decision-makers face a particular set of problems, as a function of having limited information and limited time. How many options should we consider before committing to a course of action? When should we explore new opportunities, and when should we go with what we know and trust? These might seem like problems unique to humans; they’re not. Learning to recognize the underlying algorithmic structure of the world around us gives us the tools to transform the wisdom of computer science into strategies for better decisions, in business and in life.
