Dubai group EMLC opens first leadership AI lab

DUBAI, June 11, 2018

Dubai-based leadership science company EMLC has opened the world's first artificial intelligence (AI) lab which will work towards making leaders better and help organisations maximise their profit.

The EMLC Leadership AI Lab disrupts leadership execution by combining traditional leadership approaches with cutting edge AI technology.

By observing data, employee behaviours and patterns, the lab delivers AI-enabled leadership that predicts the best actions and recommends which leadership nudges will result in minimised organisational input with maximised output: profit, performance and productivity, said the company in a statement.

AI enabled predictions provide higher accuracy and deeper granularity, which allows leaders to focus on making the right judgment calls for decision-making and execution.

Founder of EMLC and author of Amazon best-seller Leadership Dubai Style, Dr Tommy Weir said: "About a year and half ago, I visited Tokyo to learn about applied AI. When I boarded the flight to Tokyo, I was skeptical about artificial intelligence, but what I learned from MIT Media Lab, Sony Labs, Google's driving cars and other progressive projects, made me wonder, 'What's the relationship between AI and leadership?' That question has led to the opening of the EMLC Leadership AI Lab, where our team of data scientists and leadership experts use A.I. to make leaders better and help organizations maximise their profit."

EMLC, he stated, has hired global AI talent to work alongside the existing team of leadership experts to build the intent triggers and leadership nudges that improve individual leadership capacity and impact, supporting day-to-day leadership execution for organizations looking to grow their output.

EMLC's lead data scientist Vitalii Duk said: "The opportunity to use machine-learning to solve for leadership impact is a progressive move in the data science world. It is complex: combining internal company data, process mining, individual employee offsets, and leadership science to predict the best actions and ways for leaders to get results."

"Fortunately, Dubai has created an environment for the data science community to disrupt the ways AI is used and lead the way in global innovation," he added.

Machines learning and humans leading is the next logical progression in both machine learning and leadership science.

EMLC is a boutique leadership science and technology firm that merges artificial intelligence with its decades of leadership research, working with executive leaders and practical experience.-TradeArabia News Service
