Unlocking the potential of the strategy machine: an experiment with NLP Using AI to Create Advantage

28 Apr 2016

What does it mean for technology to enhance or inhibit strategy? To explore this distinction, let’s consider how two software tools using the same underlying technology—natural language processing (NLP)—can affect human thinking and business outcomes in opposite ways. We believe that unstructured data—text, in particular—could transform the way we think...
