Episode Title : Helping Businesses Responsibly Implement AI

Episode Summary:

Businesses need to evaluate AI strategy as a key element of corporate strategy and not as a separate strategy. Example, if diversity and inclusion is a core strategy, those values should be part of AI strategy too. Cortnie Abercrombie, CEO & Founder of AI Truth, worked with many businesses as part of IBM’s Digital Transformation team. Cortnie advocates that businesses need to start with a goal. Is this a goal we need to pursue AI for this goal? Could we pull the use case in a way that does more good? Example: Targeting heavy smoking people for additional sales? She also warns businesses that AI models are not just set and forgotten. They need to properly document so they can be explained and maintained.
