AI and Its Impact: Theory, Practice, and Deployment of the Enterprise

Are you interested in learning about Artificial Intelligence technologies and how they can impact your business? Watch the recorded webinar.

Recorded Tuesday, October 13 | 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. CST

This will be a lively discussion of the technologies of Artificial Intelligence and how they are impacting our lives and businesses: where they work well, where they don't and some guidance on how to avoid problems and optimize results.

Join Northwestern University’s Corporate Engagement team for a webinar on the technologies of artificial intelligence, led by Dr. Kris Hammond PhD, the Bill and Cathy Osborn Professor of Computer Science at Northwestern University 




Kristian Hammond has spent most of his career focused on the problem of making machines smarter. Since the fall of 2016, he has been the faculty lead of Northwestern's CS + X initiative, exploring how computational thinking can be used to transform fields such as the law, medicine, and education. Most recently, he has taken on the role of directing Northwestern's Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence.

Dr. Hammond's primary research is at the intersection of data analytics and human/machine communication. He works on computational methods  for interpreting user needs, translating those needs into machine executable queries and analysis, and then mapping the results to natural language. His vision is to automate the relationship between business goals and data science in an effort to scale the link between the data that serves us and the language to understand it.

Kris believes in humanizing computers with the aim of stopping the process of mechanizing people.

Who Should Participate  

Business and academic leaders interested in learning how to avoid problems and optimize results related to artificial technologies.


This is an informational webinar with an opportunity for Q&A with the speaker at the end. Participation is encouraged.
