Dear INSEAD and HBS Alumni & Friends,

 In collaboration with HBS Club of Japan, we will have the unique opportunity to host INSEAD faculty member Pavel Kireyev, Assistant Professor of Marketing in Tokyo.

  • Professor Kireyev teaches “Artificial Intelligence Strategy” in the MBA and executive programs at INSEAD as well as a PhD-level course on machine learning for management research.
  • He holds a Doctorate in Business Administration from HBS with a focus on quantitative marketing.
  • He was formerly a partner at a data science firm out of Harvard where he specialized in digital marketplaces and worked across Tokyo and Boston.

Professor Kireyev will introduce us to his research collaborations with companies and his new case study on building a “deep learning” business, written with Japanese company Preferred Networks (https://preferred.jp/en/).

 Professor Kireyev’s talk at the INSEAD AI Forum in October 2018 is available at https://youtu.be/X0a9VBzXZ7k.

The case study “Preferred Networks: A Deep Learning Startup Powers the Internet of Things” is available at https://cases.insead.edu/publishing/case?code=38453 and a short article about the case is available at https://knowledge.insead.edu/entrepreneurship/a-start-ups-evolution-from-ai-lab-to-ai-business-12846.

The lecture will be interactive and followed by a socialization time. Number of seats are limited to 40 for this event so make sure to buy your ticket ASAP to avoid disappointment.
