Our founder discusses the challenges Boards are experiencing and highlighted any progress made towards the governance of AI in their organisations.
She concluded with a number of recommendations to parliamentarians, including those on regulation.
The Boards polled, represent private industry across a range of sectors in the UK and the research undertaken by Anekanta Consulting and the Institute of Directors backs the findings.
Over 80% of Boards said they have no established process through which they may assess the use of AI within their businesses. 60% said they were unaware of any Government plans to regulate AI. As the Board is usually the accountable body in an organisation, these statistics are alarming. How do the Boards manage risk? and who, one may ask, is actually in control?
