Director of Data and Digital, Government of Canada

AI & ML have become the frontier for digital transformation. However, many companies are struggling with getting real business value and many ML projects are getting stalled due to risk and compliance concerns around black-box AI and scaling bias. 96% of organizations run into problems with AI and machine learning projects due to lack of trust in data and models across siloed functions according to a Dimensional Research report and 90 percent of all machine learning models never make it into production, according to VentureBeat. This session will discuss the important role of Responsible AI Framework and tools to drive end to end data and model transparency and trust. Topics will include real-life examples and challenges from early adopters on driving Responsible AI implementation to improve AI governance and control and accelerate adoption of Enterprise AI.
