This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro-11-4-22: AI Santa Claus!

Written by

What if Artificial Intelligence got so good at predicting what consumers want, that a virtual "Santa" could just automatically deliver Christmas toys without parents even having to order them in advance?

That was just one of many intriguing questions I explored this week with Joshua Gans, who recently co-authored the new bookPower and Prediction: The Disruptive Economics of Artificial Intelligence, along with Ajay Agrawal, and Avi Goldfarb.

Gans, who is a Professor of Strategic Management, at the University of Toronto, concludes that while AI can be extremely useful in business; much of its promise may not be fully realized for years to come. 

Find out why, listen now.
