Artificial intelligence (AI) is already having a major impact across the economy, coursing in short order across the global business environment. To truly understand the potential it holds, you first need to understand how the technology works. The Oxford Artificial Intelligence Program aims to provide you with a sound framework of this technology: from its history, functionality, and capability, as well as its inherent ethical challenges. Over the course of six short weeks online you’ll develop an informed opinion about AI's applications with insights from University of Oxford faculty. Reflect on the implications and opportunities of AI, and build a business case for its implementation within your unique organisational context.
