Description

How can we prevent project management from falling into the AI darkness?

Controlling the dark side of AI.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a topic that is all the hype in today’s business world, with new articles highlighting the seemingly endless possibilities AI offers to organizations and its leaders overall. From integration to human-computer-interfaces, to prediction, through to autonomous steering; anything is on the table and everything goes!

As with all technological progress and the change it brings with it, there is also a lot of buzz about the implications that change brings along. From loss of jobs, loss of autonomy through to humanity becoming slaves to the machines – fearmongering is a consistent companion of technological change. The same is true for the project management practice. AI has set its foot inside the door of project management and it is here to stay. However, is AI really the dark devil that it is frequently described as? What do project managers need do in order to control that darkness?

In this presentation, Marc Lahmann and Adrian Stierli will explain what risks project managers need to be aware of when dealing with AI and which limitations exist for AI in project management. Furthermore, they will describe how project managers can deal with AI myths and what causes the fear behind these myths, help to prepare project managers to use AI in the context of project management and enable them to get the most out of using AI in their projects.
