In the 21st century, the business world is increasingly using data and analytics to develop insights that will drive better decisions and shape stronger leaders.
High school students need to understand the impact of analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning and how they are altering the approach to problem-solving in every industry. Data has been described as the lifeblood of artificial intelligence, or human intelligence exhibited by machines. Systems that use AI can analyze data from different sources and offer predictions about what works and what doesn’t. That intel informs, empowers and transforms the business mindset.
In this latest series of Explore Business mini-sites designed for the pre-college learner, Wharton Global Youth translates cutting-edge analytics concepts for the high school classroom. Here, Erika James, Dean of the Wharton School, leads three separate panel discussions with analytics experts from Wharton and the professional world. Together, they investigate: how data can help govern and grow the economy; how analytics can drive social good; and how analytics gives sports teams a competitive edge.
Meant to be incorporated into classroom discussions and assignments, we invite high school educators and students to dig into these rich learning opportunities with the help of Wharton-powered insights and tools. Explore Business with a world leader in business education.
