Today’s most valuable companies and innovative startups are increasingly driven by data and artificial intelligence (AI). Understanding the value of data and AI is not only a critical differentiator for firms in today’s economy, but has profound implications across a number of core business functions and strategic activities-- in pricing, valuation, ESG and CSR, services, mergers and acquisitions, investment, and much more. Additionally, the emergence of new public data markets makes clear that billions of dollars and the financial success of many firms will be determined by their ability to price and value data and AI successfully.

In this three-part live online executive program, Stanford faculty take senior executives and key decision-makers through the emerging business strategies and research around the economics of data and AI. Participants explore the latest developments, challenges and solutions in data and AI valuation, the key technologies and platforms in play, questions around data markets, treating AI as a service, value of incremental algorithmic innovations, as well as the implications of regulatory, privacy and fairness considerations of these new platforms.

No technical AI or computing skills are required for this executive program.
