Build Your AI Strategic Roadmap

Wednesday, May 8, at 1:00 PM ET | 10:00 AM PT

Webinar Summary

Every organization is being challenged to determine its strategy on the use of AI-based solutions. Never in our history has a technology become so accessible and at that same time so disruptive with the benefits and new risks introduced. This is a unique time in our history where the benefits of AI are transformative and readily accessible to all organizations. However, the introduction of transformative capabilities also introduces new risks that need to be planned for.

Join this webinar where we will discuss how to:

  • Build an AI strategy that is driven by and aligned to the organizational strategy.
  • Responsibly deploy AI guiding principles to mitigate the risks that are introduced with the deployment of AI-based solutions.
  • Build a roadmap to deliver and support new AI-based solutions.
