Key Quote

“. . . for AI, we need to have more comprehensive governance that includes everything from ethics to explainability to accountability to bringing together all of the operational side of a model. Is it working properly? Is it being retrained continuously? Is it getting better? Does it need to be retired? But also, wedding that to some of these broader customer-relevant and employee-relevant issues.” [15:17]

“ . . . what AI is trying to do using probability is creating new conundrums that the business isn’t used to dealing with. And people aren’t very good at probabilistic thinking in the first place. So I think unfortunately, it’s one of these cases where you’ve got to bring everyone together to do this internally. My colleague Michele Goetz and I did a whole bunch of interviews around this. And we found that even some really large, sophisticated technology companies haven’t mastered every dimension of AI governance.” [16:09]

Key Quote

“Most adults don’t know how machine learning works, how the face recognition on the phone works, what’s behind all of this. And that’s the idea -- kind of unpacking this black box of AI technologies because it’s everywhere.

“When you don’t know something, it can be very scary. You don’t know what the implications are and so you tend to sort of shut it down even more, and you’re resistant to any kind of re-skilling, up-skilling, which will have to happen no matter what.” [3:44]
