Unlock the Power of AI: Transform Your Industry and Take Your Company to the Next Level
The release of ChatGPT by OpenAI in November 2022 signaled a new era for business. It demonstrated that AI was now ready for the masses and could provide practical solutions that seemed impossible before. Similar to how Dell computers solved "mass customization" through modularization, OpenAI solved "content creation" through AI. Perhaps more important than just this technology, ChatGPT showed what was possible and has sparked an AI arms race by companies to understand, harness and unleash the potential of AI in their industry and businesses. Those individuals and companies who can react the fastest to understand and capitalize on this new technology, will gain a long-term competitive advantage.
This program is designed for non-technical working professionals to quickly get up to speed on the latest in AI and how it can be used in your functional area and industry. It will provide a base fluency for you to work with others within your organization to reimagine how to do business. The course is premised on two fundamental tenets: (1) AI no longer belongs to engineers but must be embraced by everyone within the organization, and (2) AI should not replace humans but rather work in conjunction with humans.
