As AI continues to revolutionise the technology landscape for businesses, leaders are grappling with how to take advantage of the potential and respond appropriately. While there is immense potential with the latest AI developments, there are equally immense challenges – from the potential for misinformation and copyright issues, to ethical questions, to even deciding if your organisation is ready for AI and where to focus efforts.
To address some these pressing issues, Credera founded theAI Global Council. The AI Global Council is an international consortium comprised of leading experts, policymakers, industry leaders, and academics from diverse fields related to AI that have a vision to foster collaboration and help other organisations avoid the mistakes that come with the development and adoption of AI.
Forbes recently published “New Global AI Council Pioneers Insights To Shape The Future Of Artificial Intelligence”, and interviewedVincent Yates, founding member of the AI Global Council and Chief Data Scientist for Credera and OPMG, to learn more about the Council.
Below is a quick summary of their conversation. Continue to read the full articlehere.
The evolution of AI in 2023
Whilst AI is not new, it’s suddenly all everyone is talking about because of the availability of the latest generation of AI technology.
Yates shared, “If you look back at other transformative technologies, there was a huge barrier to entry. In the early days of personal computing, you had to have incredibly expensive machines that required highly esoteric programming knowledge that was out of reach of most people. It was only when those devices had graphical user interfaces and better user experiences that guided users without as much specialised training that they really began to become transformative.”
Yet while AI is a strategic priority for more than 80% of corporations, over80% of AI projectsnever make it past the proof-of-concept stage. This is one of the many places the AIGC hopes to add value.
The creation of the AIGC
The Council is made up of AI leaders with deep expertise and experiences from leading organisations, such as McDonald’s, Mastercard, and AWS.
Yates shared, “We were constantly struck by the abysmal track record of enterprises successfully deploying AI. In our experience, we do not see one consistent problem that must be solved but rather a whole tapestry of challenges that end up stymying progress within organisations.”
The AI Global Council came together as a prominent advocate for bridging the AI knowledge gap, empowering individuals and organisations to make informed decisions about AI adoption, and fostering an ethical and inclusive AI landscape.
The Council shareshow top-tier executives see the future, how their organisations are setting themselves up for success with AI technology, and what lessons they’ve learned along the way.
