Does hyperintelligence require a radically new approach to business?

Publish date:

Developments in AI make today’s technology revolution unlike any in history – and they have significant implications for how businesses will operate moving forwards.

“AI will both create and destroy value… There will be creative destruction… Policies should protect people, not jobs… Companies and the government’s focus should be on skills” – Professor John Van Reenen, economist at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

These words from the sphere of academia closely resonate with the business advisory work that Capgemini’s Christopher Stancombe (Executive Vice President, Capgemini) and Xavier Hochet (Head of Europe, Capgemini’s Business Services) have been heading up recently.

Their shared viewpoint is that the current wave of technological innovation will have a much greater impact than any such wave before it.

As such, it is ushering in a new age of hyperintelligence, where people will work collaboratively with machines to achieve previously unobtainable outcomes. This is bringing about a fundamental rethinking of how businesses operate and organize themselves. 

Christopher and Xavier are publishing a series of articles on this topic, looking at:

This series provides insights, challenges, and new perspectives to decision-makers across all areas of business today – from IT practitioners and HR managers, to CIOs and chief executives.

Going beyond mere speculation on the impact of AI, it will inform the practical and strategic changes required as businesses move into the new age of hyperintelligence.
