ABOUT THIS COURSE
This course provides an understanding of the role of artificial intelligence in managerial decision-making. It surveys different methods in unsupervised and supervised machine learning with a focus on exploiting firm data for strategic advantage. Learners will acquire the language and framework to talk to both technical experts and executives in order to better oversee the practical application of artificial intelligence and data science in their respective organizations.
Throughout the course, you will examine problems in marketing, operations, workforce management, and finance through the lens of data science and machine intelligence.
