    When Natasa Zivanovic and Ruben Vandenbulcke visited the Google offices in Brussels with their full-time MBA classmates, and heard what the Ghent-based machine learning company ML6 plans to do with artificial intelligence, they knew straight away: this was their chance to do an in-company project at the cutting edge of digital technology.

    Category: Opinions

    Today’s employees are confronted with the growing presence of technology in the workplace, in the form of artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics. In addition to being used on shop floors, this intelligent technology also has an impact on highly-skilled white-collar workers. So, in that sense the story of the march of the robots is wrong.

    “My head is saying one thing, but my heart is saying something different”: have you ever felt like that during your career as a leader? Or maybe you have intuitively sensed that something was not quite right, but you could not quite put your finger on it? In today’s business context, leaders should not only follow their head, but also their heart and intuition. However, the pressure to achieve results fast sometimes prevents you from tapping into these three sources of wisdom.

  6. AI: Science fiction or not?

    Date:
    Category: Opinions

    These days, artificial intelligence is everywhere and both large, established companies and young startups are busy experimenting with all kinds of AI applications, across all sectors. Science fiction? Actually, a lot of it comes down to advanced data analysis. Some people also call it “statistics on steroids”, as AI largely tries to recognise patterns in data. Legislation will play an increasingly important role here, a point which should not be underestimated if we do not wish to fall behind other continents that have already made greater progress. Professor Veroniek Collewaert is inviting politicians to already respond to the impact of all these evolutions on our society and to find the best ways of preparing for this.

For our Masters alumnus Helena Gheeraert, demonstrations, petitions or opinion pieces were not enough to make a difference. Helena actually wanted to roll up her sleeves and get stuck in. The result: Wonky, a range of delicious and healthy dips made of vegetables which would otherwise be thrown away. Not only less food is wasted, but it makes healthy snacking a lot easier too.
