AI and Business: Opportunities and Challenges in the Era of Artificial Intelligence

Business, Economics and Marketing will be transformed as the emerging technologies associated with artificial intelligence are embedded in organisational management and decision-making practices. How will business managers, company directors and entrepreneurs apply AI to solve business problems, develop new markets and design corporate strategy? How will the application of AI impact on the economic performance and market competition of corporations? Big data analytics, customer profile analysis, predictive modelling are among the many business and marketing tools that will be augmented by AI. This conference aims to explore and critically analyse the opportunities and challenges that AI presents for companies and entrepreneurs in the coming decade. Research papers that investigate issues associated with the conference theme (AI and Business: Opportunities and Challenges) are welcome to be presented at the BEM 2018 Annual Conference.
