Friday 28th April, 2023 – Prologue

You may or may not have read some of our Fall Business Innovation Week blogs so I thought it would be a good idea to jog your memory first.

Back in Fall, the Business Innovation Week was designed by BSL Professor Reda El Andaloussi an Ideation session to help students bring to light ideas of interests they have and how to budget and conceptualize a week’s worth of guest speakers and event management…

This was extremely fruitful as the Winter Business Innovation Week took the most popular idea (Negotiations) and got the team who proposed the idea, to work hand in hand with the BSL Student Council to bring it to life. It was the most well-received BIW by our students and brought back some well-needed energy to the Business Innovation Week.

The second most voted topic was that of AI Automation. ChatGPT hit the news at the end of 2022 like a huge fireball from above, taking most by surprise and causing a fury of curious being to sign up in order to “try it out”. (100 million users in 2 months) Our students did identify this as being a topic of interest before it blew up onto the scene and since then, so much has happened and evolved that this second most popular topic would certainly be the number 1 chosen one today.

It is so very fitting to have AI Automation as being the center point of this term’s BIW at BSL It is the current hot topic and it is something that all of us need to know about as we will be using more of it not only in business, but in our daily lives.

Here is what the upcoming week looks like:
