Why this programme?

Research proves that data-driven businesses show significantly better financial and market performance relative to competitors. Therefore, organisations should carefully consider the integration of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data during their digital transformation. By leveraging machine learning techniques, natural language processing, and robotics, in combination with the Internet of Things and cloud solutions, companies can create data-driven innovations that give them a competitive advantage.

This programme will provide you with a strategic plan to increase your business’ data-driven maturity by adopting these new technologies in your organisation. It will also help you implement data-driven projects efficiently. And furthermore, it will help bridge the gap between Artificial Intelligence and Big Data concepts and the business value that they can generate.

By participating in the ‘Creating business value with AI and Big Data’ programme, you will be able to:

  • Identify new business opportunities supported by advanced data and analytics technologies
  • Develop a data and analytics strategy for your organisation that will help you grow in terms of data-driven maturity
  • Understand the principles of Artificial Intelligence techniques and recognise the business advantages and limitations of AI
  • Select the required tools to operationalise your data and analytics strategy
  • Communicate and collaborate better with technical profiles such as data scientists and data engineers in your organisation
  • Cultivate artificial intelligence and big data projects among stakeholders

This programme will provide an intensive and interactive learning experience in which you will learn from academic experts, leading business practitioners, and each other. We will help you translate the acquired insights into actions by means of sounding-board sessions in which you will be coached on your data-driven innovations.

Once again, this is the starting point for the third edition of Transformers, a research project by Vlerick Business School in partnership with Het Financieele Dagblad. The goal is to gain insight into the efforts towards digitisation being made by the big Dutch companies, as well as serving as a reality check and sharing useful insights to help them in their transformation process.
  2. Artificial intelligence makes stock management more efficient

    What do AlphaGo, a robot that plays table tennis, a program that recognises emotions, and self-driving cars all have in common, besides the fact that all of them appeal to our imagination and are guaranteed to hit the headlines? They are all applications that use deep reinforcement learning (DRL). Intelligent stock management has recently joined that list. Along with two other colleagues, doctoral researcher Joren Gijsbrechts and Professor Robert Boute have demonstrated that DRL can be applied successfully to problems that seemed all but unsolvable up to now.
