Wednesday | 29 April 2020 | 2:30PM Qatar time

HEC Paris invites you to a series of free online masterclass sessions designed to support you and your teams through these next few weeks of confinement and help you prepare for the new normal.

The future of human collaboration in a world of automation and AI - Why companies should not give up on human and social capital too quickly.

Automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) will change the workplace as routine tasks, even complex ones, will be increasingly automated. Scientists and technology experts focus on designing effective human-system interactions as it is generally expected that human collaboration becomes less important in the future. I argue, however, that in an automated world, human collaboration will be one of the most important competitive advantages of organizations. The challenges that cannot be tackled by automation and AI require the best experts around the world to collaborate closely together and at the highest levels of effectiveness. How can organizations prepare for such challenges? And how can AI, in fact, foster organizations’ human and social capital?
