DAMA Calgary September Talk
Speaker: Mario Cantin
AI Governance – An Implementation Use Case
Date: September 16, 2021 11:45AM - 1:15 PM
The economic value of AI is expected to reach 17,5 trillions dollars by 2030. Yet, in 2020, 80% of all AI initiatives never went to production; the average ROI on AI is currently below 1,3%.
In the presentation, we will review the main reasons for the failure of AI initiatives (hint: Technology is NOT one of the main reason) and review a simple framework to proactively address AI related risks.
Through a real use case, we will analyze the strategy and step-by-step actions that will help your organization to improve its AI Governance Readiness and Maturity.
