Disruption as the New Normal
Data is getting created at a rapid pace. It is estimated that more than 2 quintillion bytes of data have been created each day in the last two years. As organizations experience an overflow of data, they are sparing no effort to extract meaningful insights to make smarter business decisions. In order to help you unravel the true worth of data, MIT Professional Education offers Applied Data Science Program, which aims to prepare data-driven decision makers for the future.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a powerful tool—but without the right system-wide architecture in place to support your initiatives, your organization is leaving value on the table. Featuring interactive exercises, industry speakers, and a hands-on group project, this dynamic five-day course is designed to equip you with the skills and strategies you need to deploy an AI systems engineering approach that maximizes the value of your digital products and services.
This research-driven and practitioner-led program is designed to help senior executives avert failure, create cultures of agility and resiliency, and develop a customized blueprint for large-scale transformation in their organization.
Horizon Europe is the EU’s key funding program for research and innovation with a budget of €95.5 billion. It tackles climate change, helps to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and boosts the EU’s competitiveness and growth. The program facilitates collaboration and strengthens the impact of research and innovation in developing, supporting and implementing EU policies while tackling global challenges. It supports creating and better dispersing of excellent knowledge and technologies.
In this presentation Michael Leskiw - Alliance Manager at the Office of Strategic Alliances & Technology Transfer (OSATT) will discuss how European ILP member companies can direct Horizon Europe funds to be used for research at MIT.
This webinar will discuss insights that are important to build resilient and efficient supply chains under uncertain environments. Speakers will elaborate on how understanding business characteristics, and using quantitative approaches may help mapping leverage points, understanding challenges and gaining flexibility in supply chains. Attendees will learn innovative strategies to support their decision-making processes to create proactive, adaptable business models through the use of data analytics while reducing costs and expanding their market share without compromising their long-term financial sustainability.
This program offers a fresh approach—a doer's approach—to innovating. Aspiring innovators will explore how to turn their “hunches” into tangible, real-world problems by learning to envision the organizations that can solve them. You will discover the advantages of converting challenges into opportunities and acquire the necessary tools and techniques to work with parts and people to move forward in your innovating.
The desire to develop solutions to the challenges we face is intrinsic within us as humans. However, with an overflow of data generated daily, solutions are often developed that exclude certain groups or may not be based on the critical needs people have. An increased focus on the context of our solutions, however, can lead us as we develop human-centered products, ventures, and services. But how do we establish that context? Is it through the data or the tech we use? The processes we establish? Or does it come directly from those who have experienced these problems?
Participants in this organizational strategy program will learn what it takes to build game-changing companies that make their teams and areas of responsibility world-class talent factories. They will also discuss the importance of building an innovative company culture and learn from the successes and challenges of various companies that have been on similar journeys of transformation.
Disruption. It’s one of the most overused words in technology and innovation, but whether we like it or not, it’s here, it’s persistent, and it’s necessary. With the pandemic as status quo for two years, its disruptions continue to reverberate, revealing weaknesses across the global supply chain and beyond. Climate change is also disrupting the world economy, and in response, the world increasingly shows a willingness to address these challenges by disrupting the way we do business now and in the future. Underneath all of this lies technology – a disruptive force in and of itself, but also a key part of the global reaction to these unavoidable disruptions.
Both historically and currently, MIT has played a key role in studying and responding to disruption. In manufacturing industries, we are helping to design resilient supply chains, flexible and automated plants and equipment, sustainable transportation alternatives for distribution, immersive technologies to enable global collaboration, and many other innovations well-suited to the present “new normal” in which change is the only certainty.
In this focused one-day event, the MIT Industrial Liaison Program and MIT Startup Exchange, in partnership with our industrial members and the MIT innovation ecosystem, will examine the state of manufacturing today, what we have learned in the past two years (and more), and where things might go in the future. We’ll hear from MIT faculty and researchers, MIT-connected startups, and industry experts, all of us working together to seek a new normal.
