    What we're about

    Welcome to AI & Business Strategy Group.

    AI technology is evolving faster than expected and is already surpassing human decision-making in certain instances. AI is producing some of the most effective and dramatic results in business today and will change the course of business tomorrow and day after.

    Meet entrepreneurs, academics, industry veterans, ethicists, marketers, and startups who are using or planning to use AI in their business.

    We look forward to seeing you at our next meetup to share and discuss best practices in building great products and services with ML/AI

    Please RSVP now.

    PS: Initially this was a smaller set of "executive students" from the Bay area who took the namesake course (AI: Impact on Business Strategy) at MIT over 8 weeks and use this Linkedin group ( to communicate, but we sense there is an emergent need to share the goodness and become more informed of the business side of AI.
