Mitigating AI Bias and Business Risks: From Theory to Practical Steps

Mitigating AI Bias and Business Risks: From Theory to Practical Steps

Dr. Ansgar Koene, global AI and ethics regulatory leader at Ernst & Young, joins us on the latest edition of the "Mind the Data Gap" podcast to discuss AI and business risks, and how to define, measure and mitigate such AI related risks. He shared his view on how data plays into this risk and what organizations do to manage this risk. Dr. Koene believes we should rethink legislation relating to data collection on gender, for instance, in order to avoid unintentional data bias.

A former research scientist, Dr. Koene works with policymakers, regulators and industry leaders among others, to support the trustworthy use of AI for the benefit of people, society and organizations.
