The world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly growing and it’s important to be aware.
In this webinar, Alex explores the most pressing AI and data battles taking place, while bringing to life some of the important real-world scenarios we too often ignore either as corporate citizens or everyday individuals.
From companies making decisions without human intervention to certain governments controlling ISO standards processes on AI, Alex will draw from his personal experience developing the world’s first Algorithmic Impact Assessment tool to show how we can reduce risk and move forward.
In this presentation, you will learn:
- What AI is and how it affects the modern workplace.
- How your organizations can better prepare for the algorithmic conflicts to come.
- How to choose ethical technology suppliers.
- The role corporate values play in automation.
- How to cut through the hype in order to focus on real concrete digital actions your institution should be most concerned about getting right.
Canada’s former chief information officer Alex Benay is no stranger to the world of AI. Now as a partner at KPMG LLP, Alex is an advocate for culture change that facilitates more digital, agile and open organizations. He is a dynamic executive with public, crown and private sector experience.
Alex has incredible energy, drive and a wealth of knowledge in the world of digital. He is the former CIO for the Government of Canada where he was named one of the world’s 100 most influential people in digital government.
