How is artificial intelligence (AI) affecting product and service development? And what do product managers need to learn in order to stay current with this rapidly expanding technology? This course will answer these questions and others, bringing you up to speed with the business side of AI and strengthening your core product management skills overall. AI-based products and services are fundamentally different from their non-AI counterparts in that they employ a “search” approach rather than a “programming” approach. This difference constitutes a paradigm shift in product management and team structures. AI solution teams, for example, include new roles like data scientist, data engineer, and AI architect. An educated AI product manager must know how to gather AI product requirements and then lay out a viable roadmap for these new teams; this course will show you how. You will learn how product managers at Yahoo, eBay, and NVIDIA created new market opportunities by utilizing AI and how their product management techniques differ from those of non-AI companies. By the end of the course, you will have crucial know-how and frameworks to manage impactful AI-driven products and services and successfully lead AI teams, practices, and partnerships.

This course is designed for individuals who have product management experience or knowledge.
