The course builds on a relational understanding of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and focuses on opportunities, limitations, and challenges related to organizational use of AI for value creation. The course introduces different types of AI technologies and how they have emerged. Through theories of how the relationship and dynamics between organizations and technology can be understood, the course highlights how AI triggers new organizational and societal challenges. Against this backdrop, the course explores how, on operational and strategic levels, businesses can work with understanding, managing and creating value using AI.
Admission to the course requires 90 credits in informatics, computer science, business administration, media and communication studies, pedagogics, psychology, political science or sociology (or equivalent competence). Also required is English A.
Applicants in some programs at Umeå University have guaranteed admission to this course. The number of places for a single course may therefore be limited.
