Avi Goldfarb is the Rotman Chair in Artificial Intelligence and Healthcare and a Professor of Marketing at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. He is also Chief Data Scientist at the Creative Destruction Lab, Senior Editor at Marketing Science, a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and President of Goldfarb Analytics Corporation.

In his new book, “Prediction Machines,” Goldfarb explains how artificial intelligence (AI) will affect business, public policy, and society in terms that work for decision makers in virtually all fields. Perhaps his most important role is coming up this October in Boston, when he will be the featured speaker at the FP&A Luncheon at AFP 2019.

Goldfarb recently joined us on the AFP Conversations podcast, and we discussed using AI to make predictions in all areas of life and business.
