Course Details

Assessing Emerging AI and Computational Technologies

This course introduces students to artificial intelligence and computational technologies and equips them to identify and assess business and societal opportunities and risks. Globally, leading organizations have begun to embrace these technologies and prepare themselves to leverage future technological advances. This course aims to prepare students to contribute to the development and implementation of innovation initiatives, considering various perspectives, including that of executive, entrepreneur, technologist, regulator, and lawyer. Most of the coursework will be completed in teams, including a final presentation. No prior understanding of the underlying technologies is required for this class. Students will learn enough about these technologies to evaluate them, but will not be required to develop technology solutions. Students will also be introduced to various innovation frameworks, including lean startup and business model canvas. This course also provides a basic introduction to the applicable regulatory, legal, and ethical landscape, including privacy, bias, discrimination, inequality, and the opportunities to improve beyond the status quo.
