The emergence of complex intelligent systems and the future of management

How can organisations be managed to responsibly contribute to, and benefit from, the emergence of artificial intelligence and complex intelligent systems? This is the overall question addressed by this project led by Nicolette Lakemond at Linköping University.

Artificial intelligence (AI) plays an increasingly important role in our society and in our lives. More and more infrastructures are dependent on AI. As a result, we are also becoming increasingly vulnerable to flaws in these systems. But the knowledge of how individuals, systems and organisations interact is limited.

The aim of the project is to contribute to the management of future organisations.

The project will provide insights into how decisions can be made concerning complex intelligent systems, how organisations can be designed, how they can work with others in ecosystems and how to harness complexity.

The project is also expected to provide new perspectives on decision-making that enable further considerations of, for example, ethical aspects.

The project combines technology and management perspectives while considering social aspects. The project’s ecosystem therefore includes management researchers, AI researchers and practitioners. Future scenarios will be studied, for example demonstration arenas for technology research and industrial applications.
