Artificial intelligence is dramatically reshaping every aspect of business and society. Nearly every job will face some impact from AI - and positions making more than $100,000 per year are particularly vulnerable to AI disruption in professions such as consulting, investment banking, asset management, software engineering, and general management. How can leaders respond to this magnitude and pace of disruption? What new questions of corporate management and governance arise in the AI age?

In this dynamic, content-rich webinar with David Shrier, Professor of Practice in AI & Innovation with Imperial College London and author of Welcome to AI: A Human Guide to Artificial Intelligence, you will learn:

  • What is the scope of AI's impact on business and the global economy?
  • How will it affect the nature of work?
  • What are the new skills that people need to acquire to thrive in the AI future?
  • What are five concrete steps boards and executive leaders can take to address AI disruption?
  • What are the fundamental cognitive biases that will inhibit AI innovation?
  • How can leaders overcome this resistance to change?
