I have three points of view why I enjoyed this boot camp so much: 1. Legislation - I need it for near future, educational needs, 2. Leadership - what can we expect from AI in reali ... ty, what can we do already, how to approach implementation, 3. Data Analytics - for my future career plan. I would recommend to all managers that think AI is avoidable, so after the boot camp hopefully they will at least realize that AI is here. And to everyone that is interested in AI technology and did not have the opportunity to learn about it. Svjetlana Maksimović, Transport manager, Gebruder Weiss d.o.o. Read more
I was inspired the most from the lectures given by Professor John Soldatos and Professor Miha Škerlavaj. The Harvard simulation on leadership challenges was the most interactive w ... ay to participate. I would recommend AI in Business Boot Camp to anyone who is interested in AI and would like to learn the basic concepts or improve existing knowledge. The Boot Camp is also suitable for individuals who would like to implement AI into their business or those who have ideas about a potential AI business, as you can get a lot of useful feedback from experts in the field. Ema Globovnik, FroomCare Read more
Intensive knowledge acquisition. Personally, the most beneficial topics were the integration between different business challenges and the appropriate AI technology to address eac ... h challenge. I know different technologies, but not in detail which one to use in which case. Secondly, the concept of change management is of course the most memorable for me, because it was linked to a simulation. I would recommend it to colleagues who are already working in analytics or data management. Jani Pušenjak, Revenue manager, Hotel Slon Read more
