Digitalisation - Review Competitive Strategies using AI: A Board’s Perspective

07 Apr 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
KL Eco City, Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

No board can fulfil its oversight duties without considering artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential to transform and disrupt strategy. AI’s potential value is enormous. According to a study of 16 industries by Accenture, AI is capable of increasing profitability rates by an average of 38% and add trillions of dollars in gross value by 2035.

To reap that value, companies are starting to compete using AI by disrupting industries with new business models. They have to simultaneously raise and serve customer expectations and partner with technically advanced ecosystem partners. It is timely for directors to perform both an inward and outward evaluation - reviewing their own knowledge and their company’s activities, as well as appraising the use of AI beyond the walls of the boardroom and the company.

This webinar will help boards and directors independently evaluate and guide management in using AI to advance their company’s strategy in a responsible way, providing them with frameworks and questions to assess their understanding of AI & their company’s future AI activities.
