Navigating the AI Horizon - Exploring the Impact, Challenges and Opportunities of Artificial Intelligence in Modern Business and Society | Sabine T. Köszegi & Rick Hefner


Insight Exchange with leading experts Sabine T. Köszegi (TU Wien) & Rick Hefner (Caltech) about the latest AI research in leadership & technology management.


As AI technologies become increasingly vital across all industries, their impact on our daily lives and business practices continues to grow. From shaping management decision-making to swiftly altering work processes with cutting-edge innovations, AI is propelling us into uncharted territory. But amidst this transformation, are our perceptions of AI exaggerated?

Since ChatGPT and its self-learning capabilities gained widespread attention in 2022, Artificial Intelligence swiftly became a globally recognized term. Reactions ranged from initial excitement to concerns regarding its societal implications. But AI encompasses far more than ChatGPT – employees are already leveraging intelligent systems, and adjacent technologies such as IoT, quantum computing, and biotechnology, into numerous industries and domains.

Join us as we discuss AI’s present and future with two experts:

Our Expert Insight will address the following:

  • What is AI – from expert systems to robotics – and why does it have such a disruptive potential?
  • In what ways have AI and Deep Tech transformed industries? What do future leaders need to know about AI? ?
  • What are potentials and risks that come with AI – both for leaders and for team members? For society? How can we manage the transition into the new AI-era?
  • How are adjacent innovations and technologies impacted, and how do we effectively leverage them?
  • How can smaller businesses, with limited resources, effectively integrate AI and Deep Tech into their operations to stay competitive?

Learn about the latest AI research, gain an exquisite insight in AI leadership and technology management and discuss your practical experiences with fellow prospects for our Executive MBA programs at TU Wien ACE!
