Microsoft introduces AI business school to help companies improve decision-making

Recently, Microsoft declared a business school in Artificial Intelligence (AI) that will help companies improve decision-making in integrating AI across their operations. INSEAD, a graduate business school with campuses in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, joined with Microsoft to build the AI Business School’s strategy module, which includes case studies about companies across many industries that have successfully transformed their businesses with AI, the company stated in a statement.

Also, the company stated, a series of short introductory videos provide an overview of the AI technologies driving change across industries, but the bulk of the content focuses on managing the impact of AI on company strategy, culture and responsibility.

“There is a gap between what people want to do and the reality of what is going on in their organizations today, and the reality of whether their organization is ready, “expressed Mitra Azizirad, Corporate Vice President for AI marketing at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington.

“This school is a deep dive into how you develop a strategy and identify blockers before they happen in the implementation of AI in your organization,” she said.

According to Nick McQuire, analyst with market research firm CCS Insight, more than 50 percent of the companies his firm has surveyed are already either researching, trailing or implementing specific projects with AI and machine learning. However, very few are using AI across their organization and identifying business opportunities and problems that AI can address, he said.
