Singapore Book Launch
Working with AI: Real Stories Human Machine Collaboration
Wednesday, 12 October 2022, 5 PM - 6 PM (SGT)
Li Ka Shing Library, Level 5, Quiet Area
Gradually but steadily, more organisations across the private, public and non-profit sectors are implementing AI-enabled information systems and physical machines into their everyday work processes. What happens when an employee transitions to doing their everyday work with the assistance of an AI-enabled “smart machine?” What is involved in making this happen within an organisation? How are companies actually combining the capabilities of AI-enabled systems/machines with human capabilities? And what are important implications as a result of this happening across more and more organisations?
These are the topics explored in this new book, “Working With AI: Real Stories of Human-Machine Collaboration,” co-authored by Tom Davenport and Steven Miller (published by MIT Press). The book contains 29 real-world case studies of people doing their everyday work with AI-enabled systems as well as seven insights chapters synthesizing insights and exploring implications.
Join us in-person for the Singapore launch of this new book.
Book co-author Steven Miller will facilitate the panel session where prominent executives from government, industry and the university discuss their take-aways from the book and their broader thoughts on the topic of “Working with AI” as it increasingly becomes part of the way we go about our daily work.
