ECDA XP Spotlight Digital Business

4 October 2021 @ 16:00 17:30

The topic of Artificial Intelligence increasingly is on the agenda of the executive board in Dutch firms. A proper blending of AI and human decision-making can provide important value to the firm, however, there are also still many questions and challenges in the adoption and use of AI. What factors drive the adoption of AI in Dutch companies, and where do organizations face the biggest challenges? How can we bridge the gap between the board and the operation, and what role can universities and Hogescholen play in the AI ecosystem innovation?

These factors will be discussed in a workshop that will take on October 4, 2021 from 1600 until 1730 at the campus of Erasmus University Rotterdam. The workshop is hosted by the Erasmus Centre Data Analytics (ECDA) in close collaboration with the Dutch AI Startup Digital Sundai and the Kenniscentrum Business Innovation (KcBI), part of Hogeschool Rotterdam.

Background for the workshop is a survey study that was executed with support from the Dutch NLAIC coalition among 40 managers in the period March until May 2021, followed up by interviews with advanced users of AI. A whitepaper with the key findings will be published after the workshop.
