Leading with Artificial Intelligence - UC MBA Thought Leadership Series 2023

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are being increasingly utilized across various sectors of society, including healthcare, finance, transportation, and education. Technologies like ChatGPT have made AI suddenly accessible to everyone, however, many decision makers lack a comprehensive understanding of the inner workings of these technologies and are not fully aware of their potential, or their unintended consequences. When these innovations introduce new methods, processes and products, they challenge the status quo and demand that managers think differently about their businesses. Join us to hear a panel of New Zealand business leaders share their insights about leading with artificial intelligence. Our panellists include Ben Reid – author of Fast Forward Aotearoa (to be published mid-2023), former Executive Director of AI Forum NZ (2017-19), Kari Jones – General Manager – Analytics & Insights, Woolworths NZ, and Gareth Mitchell – Head of Digital and Improvement, Westland Milk Products. All guests are invited to join us for networking and refreshments following the presentation. UC MBA Thought Leadership Series 2023 The UC MBA Thought Leadership Series brings together leading business minds from New Zealand and abroad to feature in our Thought Leadership Series.
