Best Practice AI Workshops

Boardroom AI briefing

How board members should think about the opportunities and risks of AI

Date: Monday 8th June 2020
Time: 13:00 – 14:00
Location: Virtual CogX

AI has been described as one of the most important transformational technologies of the 21st century. But it is hard to differentiate between hype and reality. To succeed with AI it needs to be put into the context of its strategic value and a recognition that the hardest part of AI implementation is building its foundations. The unique risks and governance challenges are critical to board members as they look to protect the reputation of a company.

This workshop will focus on:
– What is AI? How should I think about it? What is real and – what is hyperbole?
– How do I create strategic value with AI in both the short and long-term?
– What are common uses of AI today?
– What is required to successfully trial, implement and scale AI projects in my organisation?
– What are the risks of AI and how should they be governed by the board?

Identifying and governing the risks of AI

How executives can understand and manage the real risks of AI

Date: Monday 8th June 2020
Time: 16:00 – 17:00

The media portrays AI as a minefield of risks from existential threats to black boxes and discrimination. It is important to understand the real risks of AI and feel confident in how they can be managed. Drawing on real-world case studies this session will help provide a roadmap for dealing with risks.

This workshop will focus on:
– What are the different types of AI risk (from strategic to legal to ethical to operational and reputational)?
– What are real world examples of AI risks and how have they been managed?
– What are the legal risks of AI and what are regulators proposing?
– What are the best ways to govern AI ethics within my company?
– How do we operationalise governance and make it real?
