As a Fellow of the Global Research Institute, Professor Greis’s research explores the role of new digital technologies in reshaping intraregional and interregional growth in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). New digital technologies and tools of data analytics and artificial intelligence are having a disruptive impact on the ASEAN region’s economy—and its workers. Professor Greis’s research explores how these technologies are enabling organizations to rethink how they design, produce and deliver their products and services to their customers worldwide to drive positive social and economic outcomes—and strategies for closing the emerging skills gap needed to maximize its digital potential.
