Overview

In the last few years, we’ve seen a proliferation of products and services relying on Artificial Intelligence to personalize, automate and sometimes replace human cognitive activities. And yet too many of these new solutions have led to dramatic market failures – leading to monetary and/or reputational harms. In this course, we will look at different categories of AI project failures, beyond the technology, to better understand what went wrong. This non-technical course is aimed at future data scientists who want to take a cross-disciplinary approach to building their AI solutions that enables them to consider their projects from multiple perspectives. But as AI will have an impact across many business and societal activities, this course also targets those interested in entrepreneurial, business and management programs.

General Requirements

 While technology is an important component, this is not a technology course. Instead, students need only bring an exposure to and interest in how AI is rapidly reshaping our society. While this course if primarily relevant for students from DKE and Digital Society, it's also relevant for any program touching upon the implications of AI solutions – Economics, Law, Public Health, International Business, Medicine, etc. Students with a background in customer research, product or service design will also find the content extremely relevant. In fact, the more diverse the students’ programs of studies, the more relevant and useful the group work and practical exercises.
