Organizations that harness the power of AI while effectively governing its associated risks and implementing the right safeguards can better enable innovation, break boundaries, differentiate from the competition, and drive better outcomes. Stakeholders, including customers, investors, C-suite executives, board members, and regulators, are demanding a focus on trust – ethics, governance, bias, controls, and more – as organizations embark on AI programs. How can organizations build trust in their AI programs to differentiate themselves and accelerate desired outcomes? In this session, we will explore a framework to articulate trust and develop safeguards for the responsible use of AI.
