Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transpiring as a soul of lifeless machines, putting them to work while making them aware of their own surroundings. In the era of automation and AI, organizations are compelled to reassess their business models and swiftly adapt. This transformation affects not only companies but also governments and individuals. However, the hype surrounding AI as a magical solution and the associated uncertainty pose constraints on its application and growth prospects across various industries. This course aims to redirect the focus towards AI, exploring its profound business implications and successful implementation in various sectors. Specifically, we will examine multinational organizations in the retail, banking, financial services, telecom, and automobile industries. AI opens up opportunities for novel business structures, processes, and competitive strategies. Through case discussions, we will delve into how multinational corporations navigate and respond to the industrial transformation driven by big data, AI, modern automation, robotics, and platform revolution.
