Microsoft Thailand and the Future Economy and Internet Governance (FEGO) Institute, Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA), are bringing the world-class AI Business School program to Thailand to lay the groundwork for Thai business leaders and executives in grasping the capabilities of artificial intelligence to the fullest extent. 

The AI Business School program takes the form of an intensive course that will empower leaders of various organizations, businesses, and agencies to harness its knowledge base, expertise, tools, and best practices for the benefit of their own organizations. The program also places an emphasis on multi-disciplinary learning that fulfils the specific demands of each organization and sector – from healthcare and retail to manufacturing, education, and even government agencies – in four key areas: AI Strategy, AI Culture, Responsible AI, and Technology of AI. 

ETDA and Microsoft will commence e-training sessions under the program from January 2020 onward, starting with a session titled “AI for Financial Services” – to be held at the ETDA offices on January 29, 2020. Further sessions for other business sectors and industries will be held throughout the first half of 2020 – including healthcare and medical services (February), retail (March), manufacturing (April), education (May), and government agencies (June) – followed by an exclusive hackathon for course participants. 

“We can no longer deny the fact that AI is the technology that will bring about incredible changes to every business and every industry. The integration of AI into the core business can enable businesses to better engage people, innovate new possibilities, shift how we work, or solve societal challenges. We are bringing the AI Business School program to Thailand so that Thai executives can build upon the capabilities of AI and confidently stride into the digital future,” said Dhanawat Suthumpun, Managing Director, Microsoft Thailand.
