    Frameworks for Trustworthy AI

    AI is rapidly proliferating everywhere we look. Unfortunately, AI regulations and best practices are lagging dramatically. The rapid proliferation and lagging regulation of AI presents a significant challenge for organizations that are required to comply with the trustworthy AI requirements in the EU and United States. This session has three focus areas; 1) AI development, 2) risks associated with AI development and 3) trustworthy AI solutions. This session will review the typical AI development lifecycle. We will also review popular frameworks used for AI model development and validation including the Alethia Framework, NIST AI RMF and others. We will also explore risks and bias associated with AI development. Ultimately, this session will focus on a pragmatic approach to achieve trustworthy AI in the face of these challenges, risks and bias in AI development.
