Statement Response
Organizations are sufficiently expanding risk management capabilities to address AI-related risks. Disagree “Organizations are not yet sufficiently expanding risk management capabilities to address risks coming from AI, particularly in emerging economies. Firstly, there is not enough awareness of the risks involved in deploying some AI systems within organizations — that is, the demand for these AI systems is not yet comprehensively articulated to contemplate a risk assessment that not only takes into account technical risks but also legal and ethical risks. Secondly, how suppliers of AI systems comprehensively address the risks involved in the systems that they are developing is essential when the demand side is not sufficiently capable or aware of how to address this.

A more comprehensive approach to risk management is one that is also able to take into account a risk assessment that incorporates the systemic view: In other words, when an organization deploys an AI system, is it only considering efficacy and efficiency concerns, or is it also able to address wider societal concerns from these practices (such as automation and job replacement, climate-related consequences, and surveillance)?”
