What is The Analytics Academy?

The Analytics Academy was founded by ORTEC, the Department of Computer Science, Mathematics at the University of Amsterdam and the Amsterdam Business school. At The Analytics Academy we are a great supporter of lifelong learning to ensure the expertise of professionals stays relevant to meet today’s professional demand. We believe that learning more about data science requires a sound theoretical foundation, combined with practical experience in working with the latest tools and techniques. That way, participants can directly apply the lessons learned into their daily working practice.

  • Effectief Toezicht op Artificial Intelligence (in Dutch)

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is een technologie die helpt bij het uitzetten van een strategische koers, het doorrekenen van scenario’s en het creëren van waarde. Kenmerkend is het ‘Blackbox karakter’ van de technologie. De uitkomsten van de algoritmiek zijn daardoor voor betrokkenen niet verklaarbaar en transparant. Dit kan leiden tot ethisch verwerpelijke of juridisch aanvechtbare uitkomsten, zoals discriminatie, of tot waardevernietiging door grootschalige fouten. Voor leidinggevenden en commissarissen is AI dus niet alleen een asset, maar ook een risico. In deze 1-daagse masterclass krijg je handvatten aangereikt die jou als bestuurder, toezichthouder en lid van het hoger management helpen om op een goede manier met deze problematiek om te gaan.
