AI is hyped as magic solution that will power self-driving cars, provide new ways of trading stocks, and revolutionize education. But some fear that AI will lead to massive job loss and societal upheaval.

For companies and senior leaders, knowing what to do about AI can be paralyzing. How should companies set strategies and make investments? How will AI affect work and workers? What are competitors doing?

In Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence, Avi Goldfarb and his coauthors recast AI as a tool that lowers the cost of prediction.

When reframed as less expensive prediction, AI’s power becomes clearer because prediction is at the heart of making decisions under uncertainty; better prediction creates opportunities for new strategies and structures; and prediction tools increase productivity.

On April 29, in an interactive HBR webinar, Goldfarb will:

  • Share a different way of thinking about AI and its business value
  • Show how basic tools from economics provide clarity about the AI revolution and a basis for action
  • Describe an economic framework for understanding AI’s impact
  • Offer insights for navigating changes on the horizon

If you are unsure what AI means for your business, join HBR and Avi Goldfarb on April 29 to find out.
