Statement Response
Organizations are sufficiently expanding risk management capabilities to address AI-related risks. Neither agree nor disagree “Corporations certainly are taking seriously the fact that AI adoption poses risks. Companies are putting together governance and ethics boards, engaging with regulators, and reacting to news about various AI mishaps. While they are expanding their risk functions and purview to engage with AI, they are not doing so in a way that considers the unique and novel types of risks and benefits AI provides. Risk organizations and advocacy groups are still dominated by attorneys, with very few technical experts in the room who can weigh in on the appropriate value-variation calculus businesses need to consider.”
