Nearly every industry is being disrupted by artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. AI uses machine learning (ML) as well as advanced analytical and logic-based techniques to interpret events, support and automate decisions and take actions. In the project setting, AI brings many potential benefits and also comes with challenges such as data privacy and security concerns, ethical and legal considerations.

Innovation is the primary force guiding project development around the world. Within this new environment, AI is giving rise to new management issues, new application scenarios, and new methods and tools. This environment provides a rich source for academic research oriented to AI in project, program and portfolio management, and offers opportunities to co-create value for the enterprise and its customers.

AI is emerging in project management practice, and research is urgently needed to address the challenges of both building AI-driven solutions, and leveraging AI to create more effective projects, programs, and portfolios. AI will have considerable impacts on competency requirements for project and program managers, project teams and sponsors, business leaders, end users, and other stakeholders.
