Dear AIB Colleagues, I'm currently co-editing a book with Dr. Alka Maurya titled "International Perspectives on Artificial Intelligence" (Anthem Press, 2021). Might you be interested in contributing a chapter? This book project is very relevant to the AIB community for the following reasons: 1) it has an international business theme, 2) it underscores the importance of the digital economy in today's global business environment, 3) it promotes collaboration of scholarship across countries, 4) it provides an opportunity for scholars and researchers to showcase their work to a global audience, and 5) it helps advance the understanding and appreciation of artificial intelligence within an international context. As you are aware, Artificial Intelligence (Ai) is having a significant impact on many organizations and countries worldwide. A PWC Report indicated that Ai can contribute as much as 26% boost in the GDP of countries. It is forecasted to have a $15.7 Trillion impact on the global economy by 2030. The edited book aims to educate readers on the state-of-affairs of Ai in various locations around the world. Drawing from international contributors from different countries, the book aims to be a key resource on Ai in international locations. The intended audience will be academics, corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, government leaders, consultants and policy makers worldwide. In this book project, we are gathering academics, scholars and thought leaders from around the world to provide their perspective of Ai in selected countries.
