Expert advice means so much more when it comes from people who understand the pressures of leadership

Every day new uses are being created for Artificial Intelligence.  The rapid pace of technological development is exciting so it’s easy to race ahead with using AI in your organisation without thinking through the governance and ethical implications.

“This developing focus on ethics is no fad, and companies that treat it as such put themselves at considerable risk.”

Financial Times – 6 December 2020

But how do you know if your data is truly representative or if it contains bias? How do the algorithms in your model weight the data? Will your model work reliably in all circumstances and is the data securely held? Have the data subjects given real, informed consent? What about inclusivity – does your app empower everyone?

These are just some of the questions we can help you figure out. With over three decades experience in dynamic businesses and not-for-profit organisations, we have the experience to understand the pressures on you to act fast and bring strategic and practical advice to your team.
