Lecture Preview

Recently, artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the operating process of a large number of companies as well as our lifestyle. The advances of machine learning techniques (especially deep learning) enable AI-based algorithms, machines, and systems to perform more tasks. In this paper, we review the current research on AI from a micro perspective. First, we discuss the application research about AI in four different scenarios (i.e., operations management, healthcare, human resources, and city governance). Next, we explore discrimination issues in AI-based algorithms and the potential reasons as well as solutions. Last, we review how do humans perceive the AI technologies or algorithms, and then make a conclusion.
