The Insightful Leader Live: What to Know about Today’s AI—and Tomorrow’s

Large-scale language models like ChatGPT have taken the world by storm, dazzling users with their ability to pen convincing marketing copy, suggest recipes, and converse a lot like humans. But these models, for all their strengths, have some hefty (and concerning) limitations. So what should we make of them—as business leaders and as citizens? And what other kinds of AI could be on the horizon? In this complimentary webinar, Kellogg faculty David Ferrucci, the AI researcher who started and led the IBM Watson team from its inception through its landmark Jeopardy success in 2011, and Brian Uzzi, a professor of management and organizations, will walk us through the inner workings and social ramifications of today’s AI—and tomorrow’s.

David Ferrucci is founder, CEO, and Chief Scientist of Elemental Cognition, which builds hybrid AI. He has led AI research teams at both IBM Research and Bridgewater Associates. He is also an adjunct professor of management and organizations at Kellogg.

Brian Uzzi
is a professor of management and organizations at Kellogg. He is also codirector of the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO). His research uses social-network science and computational methods to explain outstanding human achievement. He consults with organizations around the world.
