Advantages & Adversities of AI: A Risk-Based Approach to the Future of Resilience 

April 10, 2024

4:10 - 5:00 PM


Welcome to the realm of possibilities and dark alleyways, where artificial intelligence converges with simulation and real life. This session will emphasize the importance of understanding the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in risk and resilience. We will cover why AI is good for our profession using present case studies and examples of AI-driven successes in resilience. We will also look at the potential risks and drawbacks of AI in the context of resilience - touching on concerns with ethics, privacy, and data security. As Third Party Risk professionals, what should we be asking – what are those critical questions and safeguards? We will conclude with what are the emerging trends and future scenarios related to AI and risk.
