Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) is NOT the future. It is very much the present. We are at a pivotal time where AI will be incorporated into every aspect of our professional and personal lives. As we shift to Society 5.0, the key questions are: 1) what should I be doing with AI, and 2) how do we channel our efforts for social enterprise/entrepreneurship? To create a bright future, organizations will need fresh ideas and new techniques to maximize value from AI capabilities. Let’s explore the path ahead of us and show how we can be the creators of the future rather than just passengers.
