Chicago Booth introduces AI class for MBAs

Professor Mullainathan puts students' taste buds to the test

Could you tell the difference between a risotto recipe created by a catering company and one created by a robot?

Sendhil Mullainathan, Roman Family University Professor of Computation and Behavioral Science, asked his students to put their taste buds to the test as part of a new class on artificial intelligence. 

Rather than focusing on the mechanics of AI, as other UChicago classes do, Mullainathan gives students a strategic understanding of how to deploy AI tools in business, and, more importantly, how to consider what AI does well and what it does badly.
