Applying AI in Innovation Management (MTP)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming companies and revolutionizing the way innovation management is approached. With the increasing collaboration between AI and humans, there is a need to re-evaluate how creativity is defined and innovations are developed and managed. This course delves into the implications of using AI for creativity and innovation management. We explore the use of AI along the double diamond framework in innovation management to enrich new product development and other innovative tasks such as idea generation, idea evaluation, concept development and prototyping. In addition, we will reflect on the extent to which AI affects established practices in innovation management and related creative fields, identify current limitations, and explore potential future advancements.
