In Brief

How leaders can drive cultural shift that accelerates the acceptance, adaption, and scaling of AI in order to augment human capabilities and create new possibilities.

In Detail

Without transformation in leadership, AI will never fully deliver. Throughout history, we can witness, emerging technologies have always lead to development, yet, it was never technology on its own that lead to change. It’s been the people behind it. People who dared to think outside of the box and dared to take risk with the vision of how a transformation can result not only in better economic value, but also in more sustainable and legitimate organizations.

Visionary leaders play a fundamental role also in the era of AI. They dare to take the lead to drive their organizations forward by combining human intelligence with artificial intelligence. It’s something that has not yet been seen in history, but the potentials for our businesses, economies and societies worth taking the risks. Visionary leaders across domains and industries, can create understanding and acceptance, and ensure that the embracement of new technologies lead to a flourishing future across the world.

Main Focus Points
– Thinking outside of the box: when leaders become also thought-leaders
– AI in the boardroom: the top-down approach to drive change
– AI and the workforce: creating understanding and acceptance
