Description:
This course was formerly known as KACI 950-5
An executive's most prized network contact for crafting new strategies and making evidence-based judgments may no longer be a person, but a machine. Machines help solve complex problems, lessen decision bias, scale human effort, and spot hidden patterns in big data. However, they lack the creativity and insight that top executives possess. Together, executives and machines have the potential to make powerful "thought partnerships." Using hands-on cases and applications --- including IBM's Deep Blue and Google's AlphaGo that beat Chess and Go Grand Masters --- this course shows how to use a critical set of machine learning decision tools, such as natural language processing, sentiment analysis, and pattern recognition to discover new competitive strategies, turn raw numbers into convincing stories, and make less biased judgments. The overarching goal is to enable you to confidently lead data science and design teams, know the expansiveness and limits of machine-learning complex decision support tools, and be capable of applying human+machine thought partnerships to grow businesses or disrupt Grand Masters in any field.
