Wharton School announces new AI for Business initiative

The Wharton School has announced the establishment of Wharton AI for Business, which will inspire cutting-edge teaching and research in artificial intelligence, while joining with global business leaders to set a course for better understanding of this nascent discipline.

“The advances made possible by artificial intelligence hold the potential to vastly improve lives and business processes,” says outgoing Wharton Dean Geoff Garrett. “Our students, faculty, and industry partners are eager to join in our AI knowledge creation efforts to more deeply explore how machine learning will impact the future for everyone.”

Operating within Analytics at Wharton and led by faculty member Kartik Hosanagar, the John C. Hower Professor of Operations, Information and Decisions, AI for Business will explore artificial intelligence’s applications and impact across industries.
