On 13th November 2019, ESCP's London Campus hosted an event promoting international-bestselling book ‘The AI Republic: Building the Nexus Between Humans and Intelligent Automation’ published in June 2019. 

‘The AI Republic’, co-written by Dr Terence Tse (Professor of Finance and Academic Director of the MSc in Digital Transformation Management & Leadership at ESCP Business School and Co-Founder of Nexus FrontierTech), Dr Mark Esposito and Danny Goh, is for anyone curious about a future shaped by Artificial Intelligence, explaining how we can build a shared space where humans and intelligent automation work together. 

During the event, which was attended by many ESCP students, alumni and external guests, Tse and Goh focused on demystifying AI as a life-changing but often threatening technology, and provided examples of how it could serve a purpose in business. They also suggested that artificial intelligence will radically change our lives, just not in the ways we initially imagine (such as massive job elimination).  

Tse and Goh emphasised the myths that need to be debunked and the opportunities ahead of us to reform our societies in the light of new AI technologies. Following this line of thinking, they offered certain ideas of career directions in tomorrow’s job market.

The talk was followed by a Q&A session and book signing. 

ESCP has developed a strong expertise in the domain of artificial intelligence through its cutting edge research and development of two programmes: MSc in Digital Transformation Management & Leadership and Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation & Digital Transformation.

The School has also supported the Digital Transformation and Innovation Forum organised by the French Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain (CCFGB). An article on the theme of demystifying AI in the current business arena, based on the CCFGB’s forum event, can be found here
