How Can Artificial Intelligence Effectively Augment Human Intelligence
How Can Artificial Intelligence Effectively Augment Human Intelligence?

Hosted by Aravinda Garimella

There is growing consensus that the better way to think about artificial intelligence is not from a machine-versus-human perspective but from a machine-plus-human perspective. The understanding that human intelligence and artificial intelligence have different, as well as complementary, strengths and weaknesses has led to the emergence of human–AI hybrid systems that combine the two intelligences. While the transformative potential of AI is widely recognized, there is still significant uncertainty for businesses on how to effectively integrate AI into their existing processes. Aravinda Garimella, assistant professor of business administration at Gies College of Business, discusses key issues to consider before designing, implementing, and using AI-augmented systems.

The Disruptive Impact of COVID 19 on Supply Chains
The Disruptive Impact of COVID 19 on Supply Chains

Hosted by Nehemiah Scott

Organizations typically operate their global supply chains based on fairly predictable and highly probable situations. When an unpredictable and highly improbable situation arises, supply chains will be disrupted. During disruptive events like COVID-19, the displacement of international transportation resources, the negative capacity cushions of manufacturers, and the demise of small deep tier suppliers were evident, but what exactly does this mean for the supply chain? In addition, the severe shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators has placed supply chain disruption front and center within the global landscape.

In this webinar, Professor Nehemiah Scott discusses the supply chain’s susceptibility to risk and describes several ways in which typical supply chain processes were disrupted by COVID-19. He also identifies important investment options that organizations can pursue in their quest for supply chain recovery and resilience.

One word: Data. Gies Adjunct Professor and Principal Data and Analytics Strategist with Caserta, Doug Laney, shares guidance and examples for business and IT leaders on how to leverage your (and other’s) data assets to buffet against, and even thrive, in challenging economic times.
