Professor Naqvi empowers public, private, and social companies to successfully invest in, and with, artificial intelligence
The problems solved by Professor Naqvi
As artificial intelligence has redefined the competitive dynamics for all firms, some companies are better than others in investing in, and with, artificial intelligence. Since artificial intelligence is now central to delivering returns above and beyond shareholder/investor expectations, and for creating competitive advantage, tremendous value can be created by answering the questions:
Why some firms are better in creating value from artificial intelligence while others are not?
How to use artificial intelligence to create value?
This leads to a single problem statement: how to invest in, and with, artificial intelligence? Professor Naqvi calls this the Problem of AI Reindustrialization.
The solution developed by Professor Naqvi
Professor Naqvi recognized that the level of change introduced by artificial intelligence is so immense that any unidimensional approach for analysis will not provide meaningful insights. He developed a model for understanding disruptive innovation asset values based upon their role and performance potential in reindustrialization economics. Specifically, his model has the following features:
Multidimensional: A firm’s ability to innovate and then drive shareholder value from its innovation requires automation and creativity at all critical points in the value chain. Knowing, measuring, and analyzing such variables is key to studying the performance potential of disruptive innovations.
Dynamic Valuation: Static valuation models are no longer adequate representations of a firm’s valuation. Professor Naqvi’s dynamic valuation modeling includes behavioral, narrative, and geopolitical developments.
Multi-model: Professor Naqvi deploys a multi-model approach based upon complex adaptive systems to model automation dynamics and disruptive innovation of a firm.
Professor Naqvi’s work deploys deep learning to study advanced models of financial engineering, portfolio management, and asset management. He uses a unique approach. Specifically, Professor Naqvi’s model closes the gap between operating decisions of a firm (for example Supply Chain Management) and its financial decision-making (for example, Capital and Capital Structure). Such models can be used to study the performance and competitive dynamics of companies, industries, and national economies.
Al Naqvi pioneered the development of original body of knowledge in various application areas of artificial intelligence – inventing various methods and models. These knowledge areas include AI in Corporate Strategy, AI in Finance, AI in Marketing, AI in HR, AI in Competitive Intelligence, AI in CSR, AI in Supply Chain Management, and AI in Audit. His work is recognized by several professional societies including AICPA and APICS/ASCM. As a keynote speaker, Naqvi has appeared in leading AI global conferences.
He enables firms to invest in, and with, artificial intelligence. He is CEO and Professor at the American Institute of Artificial Intelligence. Under his leadership, American AI offers asset-based consulting, conducts sophisticated research, and is developing stealth products. He is the author of several books on AI, including: Artificial Intelligence for Audit, Forensic Accounting, and Valuation (Wiley); Artificial Intelligence for Asset Management and Investment; and co-edited Handbook for Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Process Automation: Policy and Government Applications. A leading advocate for responsible adoption of AI, Naqvi’s programs are naturally linked with ESG strategy.
His work has been recognized by world’s leading professional societies, universities, and companies. Over 300 companies have benefited from Naqvi’s research. He is widely published in both academic and practitioner publications. Al Naqvi’s professional research interests are broad, and include artificial intelligence, applied AI, robotic process automation, deep learning, complex adaptive systems, cognitive organizations and leadership, and strategic cognitive transformation. He teaches several classes on Applied Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, RPA, and Cognitive Transformation at the American Institute of Artificial Intelligence. Professor Naqvi is passionate about teaching people about the potential and practical applications of artificial intelligence. He calls it reskilling and re-intellectualization of the workforce. He has designed several products using Deep Neural Networks. Known for making artificial intelligence fun and easy to understand, he has appeared in various conferences and shows all over the world. He lives in the greater Washington DC area.
