The Compliant A.I.: How to Ensure A.I. Is Working for – Not Against – Us

Compliance Conference 2021

In almost all sectors of the economy companies use AI for a wide array of activities from profiling their customers to facilitating their hiring processes, and the spectrum of AI application is only getting wider. In theory, legal requirements and boundaries should be clear, but in practice, legislation is often playing catch-up with the fast-evolving technology. Therefore ethics play an equally important role and will soon need a designated herald within organizations. Will Compliance Officers tackle the AI ethics questions, or will we see the rise of the Chief Ethics Officer?
