The promise and reality of AI to change how we build and operate companies and societies are significant. However, if unchecked and ungoverned, AI’s potential to produce unintended consequences and biased outcomes poses existential threats to all stakeholders. At the same time, those who stand by the sidelines, afraid to act, will lose out on the value-creation opportunities. While most business leaders acknowledge this tension, many companies have yet to implement mechanisms to balance the trade-offs in maximizing value and minimizing risk. Addressing this dilemma requires consideration of company values, governance mechanisms, and even cultural changes.

Join us, fellow business leaders and AI experts, as we explore and address these challenges together. This event is by invitation only.
