Session 3: Managing Your AI Risk Profile


Welcome to Part 3 of our 3-Part AI Educational Program Series!
The AI Opportunity, How we are Already Using it and What’s Next

Event Overview

In this session, we address that question that’s top of mind with leaders and board directors: What have I gotten myself into? Our panel and audience will explore the risks associated with AI. Key issues to consider when conducting any AI initiative will be examined. Topics include avoiding so-called Black Box AI problems by focusing on explainability and transparency in a company’s AI practices, establishing an ethical AI philosophy in the organization through the use of FATE (Fairness, Accountability, Transparency, and Ethics in AI) principles, and managing stakeholder trust in AI through communication. We will discuss the confusing landscapes of content ownership, data privacy, and ethics in applying AI to business opportunities and challenges. Our panelists will share perspectives on how leaders and board directors can stay informed and engaged with the rapid changes in artificial intelligence, including deploying board-level AI governance into their companies.

Core subject matter for the session:

  • Trust and transparency in artificial intelligence models
  • AI ethics and governance
  • Regulatory issues related to data and AI


  • 4:30-5:30 pm: Networking
