Session Overview

Artificial Intelligence (AI) often refers to a set of techniques that develops machines to emulate intelligent behavior. By thinking rationally or acting human, software can replicate human tasks that require a higher sphere of cognitive awareness. AI is now making its way into banks, insurance companies, asset management and many other industries.

As AI becomes more widely adopted, it becomes necessary to develop insights into Auditing AI to prevent business disruptions and be regulatory compliant. Join us for an engaging session on artificial intelligence, where we will:

·     Use interactive activities to help participants demystify seemingly complex AI concepts, including big data, algorithms, and types of artificial intelligence.

·        Apply case studies, to explore opportunities and risks associated with AI.

·        Highlight frameworks that can be applied to introduce AI and clarify roles across the three lines of defense.
