New book on AI from an innovation perspective
In the newly published book Artificial Intelligence and Innovation Management, international experts give their views on how AI affects how companies and organizations do business and innovate. Helena Blackbright, innovation researcher at Mälardalen University and project manager at Automation Region, and Stoyan Tanev, professor at Carleton University in Canada, are editors of the book.
“AI technology is now so useful that it is expected to have a major impact on the pace of innovation in many different sectors”, says Helena Blackbright. “It enables radically renewed processes for value creation, at the same time as more and more tasks can be automated and machines begin to surpass human cognitive ability.”
The book is divided into 12 chapters where 24 experts from 8 different countries – both researchers and practitioners – present different perspectives on how AI affects and gives power to innovation. Editors Helena Blackbright and Stoyan Tanev lead a Special Interest Group for AI within ISPIM, the International Society for Professional Innovation Management.
