Supply Chain Exchange First Fridays Research Briefing

Mar 05, 2021 at 11:00AM - Mar 05, 2021 at 1:00PM Artificial Intelligence deploys the ability of a machine to perform cognitive functions associated with human minds, such as perceiving, learning, interacting with the environment, and problem-solving. But some supply chain decisions require more than the formal rationality that underpins AI algorithms; they also need the substantive rationality of the human mind. In our research at the MIT Digital SC Transformation Lab, we explore the interplay between humans and AI, and we identify different combinations of human and artificial intelligence for applying AI more successfully. In this session, we will discuss some AI applications in supply chains, as well as recent findings from field experiments on demand forecasting in the retail industry.
