Five years ago I was in Abu Dhabi for one of my last INSEAD GEMBA modules by Professor Philip M. Parker. It was titled Al Strategy for Startups and C-Suites. This elective course was designed to introduce, demystify and investigate value creation strategies in ecosystems relating to AI, machine learning (ML) and and advanced analytics. I was curious and apprehensive as I knew nothing about AI beyond science fiction. And especially how this could be applied in my daily life or work.
