The Future of AI Lies in Trust


Tuesday, September 19, 2023 | 12 – 1 p.m. ET

Tremendous advances in artificial intelligence (AI) have led to bursts of enthusiasm directed toward leveraging solutions designed to tackle real-world problems across industries.  Yet, despite some well-publicized success stories, truly successful adoption of AI has been limited to date.

Indeed, even some early positive use-cases have seen new issues and challenges surface that have either hindered further deployment or led to the roll-back of AI implementation efforts. Compounding these challenges, recent legislation related to "responsible AI" has increased the bar for AI deployments.

Join this free webinar on September 19 from 12 - 1 p.m. ET and hear Dr. Alexander Wong share why trust is one of the biggest barriers to successful and sustainable deployment of AI solutions for solving real enterprise problems, and why building trustworthy AI can create a competitive advantage. He will also explore some of the key challenges in operationalizing AI in a trusted, dependable, and explainable manner, while offering potential solutions and best practices for those organizations seeking to maximize their AI investments.
