Maximizing benefits, minimizing risks and bridging the AI tooling gap

  • Invitation Only

  • We are calling for case studies showcasing successful – and less successful – attempts at implementing AI regulatory frameworks. By examining what works and what doesn’t, and by pinpointing existing gaps, these case studies will provide insights into practical approaches, challenges faced, and lessons learned in the journey towards responsible AI utilization.

    Each table discusses one of three themes:

    • Theme 1: What is the landscape of AI Governance and how will it evolve?
    • Theme 2: How do we implement AI Governance frameworks?
    • Theme 3: How do we ensure inclusion and trust?
