Value vs. Risk – A Thoughtful Approach to Generative AI

For leaders, there’s nothing new about managing internal expectations on hyped technologies, but the recent advancements in AI have caused an increased and urgent demand for the evaluation and adoption of generative AI models. There is no question that these breakthroughs, such as ChatGPT, are just the beginning, but technology executives must temper expectations and ensure a thoughtful approach to building AI models that will add more value than risk.

Join your CISO community, as they discuss:

  • Communicating and quantifying the benefits and risks of generative AI adoption
  • Identifying and aligning a business need and use case for AI implementation
  • Keeping up and staying ahead of the continuous AI advancements
