Exploring Artificial Intelligence at the 7th Global Peter Drucker Forum
We’ve been learning – and writing – a lot about artificial intelligence recently, as many of you will know, so we were pleased to note that it’s central to the topic being explored at this year’s Global Drucker Forum in Vienna.
