Tommy Weir: The World’s First Leadership AI Lab

As founder of Emerging Markets Leadership Center, Tommy Weir has helped several thousand executives from more than 80 nationalities achieve better performance.

Tommy Weir is the author of the bestselling, Leadership Dubai Style and advises CEOs around the world on how to improve their leadership in order to achieve rapid growth.

Emerging Markets Leadership Center has now launched its latest project: the world’s first leadership Artificial Intelligence lab in Dubai. Its goal is simple: to use machine learning to help leaders lead the best they can.

The EMLC Artificial Intelligence Lab will highlight how people and machines lead better together.

The EMLC Leadership A.I. Lab disrupts leadership execution by combining traditional leadership approaches with cutting edge A.I. technology.

By observing data, employee behaviours and patterns, the Lab delivers A.I.-enabled leadership that predicts the best actions and recommends which leadership nudges will result in minimized organizational input with maximized output: profit, performance and productivity. A.I. enabled predictions provide higher accuracy and deeper granularity, which allows leaders to focus on making the right judgment calls for decision-making and execution.

Tommy Weir commented: “About a year and half ago, I visited Tokyo to learn about applied A.I. When I boarded the flight to Tokyo, I was sceptical about artificial intelligence, but what I learned from MIT Media Lab, Sony Labs, Google’s driving cars and other progressive projects, made me wonder, ‘What’s the relationship between AI and leadership?’ That question has led to the opening of the EMLC Leadership AI Lab, where our team of data scientists and leadership experts use A.I. to make leaders better and help organizations maximize their profit.”

EMLC has hired global AI talent to work alongside the existing team of leadership experts to build the intent triggers and leadership nudges that improve individual leadership capacity and impact, supporting day-to-day leadership execution for organizations looking to grow their output.

EMLC’s Lead Data Scientist, Vitalii Duk commented: “The opportunity to use machine learning to solve for leadership impact is a progressive move in the data science world. It is complex: combining internal company data, process mining, individual employee offsets, and leadership science to predict the best actions and ways for leaders to get results. Fortunately, Dubai has created an environment for the data science community to disrupt the ways AI is used and lead the way in global innovation.”

Machines learning and humans leading is the next logical progression in both machine learning and leadership science.

EMLC is a boutique leadership science and technology firm that merges artificial intelligence with its decades of leadership research, working with executive leaders and practical experience.
