AI for decision making

Managing artificial intelligence (AI) represents a new era of information technology management: it is not always easy to discern the path to take.

Building, implementing, and controlling machine learning technologies is not easy as they are a constantly evolving.

Working relationships involve collaboration between humans and machines and it is important to find a rationale to implement changes.

Understanding the risks of AI, setting the conditions for operating and not being afraid to implement change demands a lot of thinking.

About AESE/EDP Chair in Ethics in the Company and in Society

The AESE/EDP Chair in Ethics in the Company and in Society was set up in 2011, under an Agreement between the two organizations. The Company and the School have undertaken to develop the 1st Corporate Chair – Ethics in the Company and in Society, through which they can, on the one hand, consolidate the information provided in classes taught in the School on this subject and, on the other hand, offer advanced training on ethics to the Company’s workforce. (on the AESE/EDP Agreement).

The Chair is an institutional initiative, within an academic field, related to the development of an area of study. It consists of a research, teaching and dissemination programme led and developed by an AESE professor in order to perfect knowledge on a particular subject matter.

“Several years after the creation of the AESE-EDP Chair in Ethics in the Company and in Society, we can now assess, with a certain distance (historic acceleration has compressed all timeframes), the great rewards that it has brought and the prospects that are opening up.
It is not just the research that it has made possible, the seminars that it has enabled us to organize, with foreign visiting lecturers who are leaders in this field, but, above all, the existence of a team dedicated to developing a theme that is at the heart of both AESE and EDP and is so crucial to organizations.
EDP has rightly gained international recognition for its long track record in this field, including the successive implementation of the most highly recommended best practices.
A commitment to ethical leadership, with best practices and with social and environmental responsibility, will be the hallmark of large organizations in the future, for which they will be judged, in addition to the results they obtain.” Raul Diniz, Chairman of AESE and holder of the AESE/EDP Chair in Ethics in the Company and in Society
