Challenges and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence in the business world

18:00 - 18:40 Tuesday 19 March


Models based on Artificial Intelligence can increase, and in some cases replace, through completely autonomous systems, the ability to act, to make decisions, of human persons. This substitution of functions, which worries so much in the whole world, could produce massive losses of jobs, the disqualification of the people who performed them, unknown effects in the systems they will manage or contexts of unwanted ungovernability.

These challenges must be met with strategies that minimize the damage they may cause, turning them into opportunities to improve the competitive advantages of companies, increase yields and employment, and increase commitment and social welfare.
