Increasing digital transformation has led to the tremendous growth of business data volumes and increased the investment of disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to generate data-driven insights and business efficiencies. This change has shifted the risk landscape (privacy, data biases, and discrimination, etc.) and has emphasized how organizations are responsibly using, protecting, and governing data assets.

This session will begin with a primer on AI and how various disruptive technologies tend to shape the organization’s strategy; will then introduce a framework for understanding risks; following by a discussion of leading practices for how organizations should address these risks with the right balance of innovation, risk management, and ethically scaled AI.
