Here’s what happened at one of our recent Board development sessions

We tailored the session to the stage the Directors were at; some wanted to know the basics of how AI works, whilst others were keen to get into the details of the risks using AI could bring.

Board leader discussion

After covering the basics to get everyone on the same page, we facilitated the discussion about how the business could use AI and posed challenging questions like:

  • Who’s the Board champion who can bring real clout to your plans to use AI?
  • How are you going to tackle the tricky grey areas of AI ethics?
  • How will you consult with people across the business (and outside) to gather views and disseminate the Board’s decisions on the guardrails you put in place from the top?

It was a great presentation, thoughtful and thought-provoking in equal measure, which prompted lots of discussions on the tables, and subsequently over drinks. You left people with a clear sense of the opportunities offered by AI as well as realistic sense of some of the threats, cutting through the hyperbole which has been such a feature of recent media coverage.

Ready to start using AI – time to explore the risks

Now they were ready with ideas to start using AI we worked on the risks their plans for AI could bring and how to mitigate them, using our Responsible AI framework. At the end of the session they had a comprehensive plan for how to move forward with using AI responsibly, including areas to work on such as:

  • Ethics – you could allow your algorithms to play on human psychology and manipulate people into behaving in certain ways, but should you?
  • Bias – is your data truly representative or could it contain bias?
  • Data privacy – do you have genuine, informed consent to use personal data?
  • Transparency – how do the algorithms in your model weight the data? Are outcomes clear and transparent or black box?
  • Explainability – can you explain how your AI models work? Who should you be informing?
  • Regulations – are you complying with regulations (which could include GDPR, the UK Age Appropriate Design Code and proposed regulations in the EU, UK, US and other jurisdictions)?
  • Safety and cyber security – will your model work reliably in all circumstances and is the data – including new data being consumed by the model – safe and securely held?
  • Diversity and inclusivity – is your AI application inclusive by design and does it empower everyone?

“The ethical issues that arise from AI … require expertise and insights across a wide range of disciplines, from technology and regulatory compliance to philosophy, psychology, and sociology—and everything in between.”
