Doing business with AI

AI is quickly making a commercial career for itself. What happens to business models and companies when someone can speak any language, can learn things in an instant and has more areas of expertise than anyone else?

We may consider it entirely natural these days for artificial intelligence (AI) to be used to facilitate communication with customers or to deliver goods faster. The fact that technology giants like Microsoft are investing heavily in AI is not that remarkable either. But many agree that there are still some questions to be answered before the technology can be fully utilised; people are talking about things like jobs and security.

Welcome to a seminar that will explore the issue of doing business with AI from three perspectives: business, investment and research.

  • IBM has changed its future strategy and AI is now a predominant part of its business model. In which commercial contexts is the Watson software being used?
  • How do investors regard the new companies whose business models are based on AI?
  • What is the distance from research to market, and how does it differ from other research areas?

Participants: Mikael Haglund, IBM, Jane Walerud, Walerud Ventures and Danica Kragic, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH).

The moderator will be Staffan Truvé, Chairman of IVA Division XII Information Technology, and Birgitta Resvik, Chairman of IVA Division II Electrical Engineering.
