About The Future of Leadership: Human & AI Collaboration in the Workforce

When businesses embrace extended intelligence (EI), they get results. Research shows that encouraging human-AI collaboration – blending the leadership, creativity and social skills of humans with the speed, scalability and quantitative capabilities of AI – makes AI business tools faster and smarter, boosting a company’s bottom line. As businesses increasingly adopt AI solutions – global AI software revenue is forecast to reach nearly $1 trillion by 2028 – business leaders must rethink their organizations to turbocharge productivity and stay competitive. If 81% of office workers already say AI improves their overall performance, the future of human-AI collaboration is truly infinite.

In this course from MIT Media Lab, the leader in how technology impacts humanity, business leaders and corporate innovators will learn strategies for rethinking people, processes and organizational design by enhancing human-AI collaboration through EI. To understand how AI can augment – not replace – human intelligence to help reduce costs, manage risks, streamline operations and accelerate growth and fuel innovation, you will dissect use cases and dive into topics like reinforcement learning, cross-domain operations, integrated decision-making, dynamic teaming and cryptographic trust networks. Throughout the course, you’ll work on a capstone project to leverage EI to more effectively direct the computational strength of AI, so that you’re best positioned to reimagine business frameworks for the future.

Is This Course Right for You?

The course is designed for C-suite leaders and founders who are looking for ways to set their business up for future success by taking advantage of EI frameworks, as well as corporate innovators such as head counsels, investment directors and managers, heads of R&D and heads of finance, who want to use the power of EI to improve AI outputs in their organizations. Digital experts who want to get more out of their existing AI outputs also stand to benefit greatly from the course.
