Artificial Intelligence Risk (AI Risk) Chapter

The AI Risk chapter demonstrates an organizational commitment towards a sustainable AI through governance over its impact on humanity.

 

 

The AI Risk Chapter is the first of its kind to be set up in RIMAS. 

The activities of the chapter will be organizing workshops, seminars to promote the concept of AI risk management, responsibility, and leadership among our members in the association. AI Risk Management, and the benefits thereof, are better understood and many large companies now have personnel who are specially assigned AI risk management duties. Some companies in fact have established AI risk management divisions in order to provide risk services to their clients in ensuring areas of AI ethics, bias, privacy, and trust are audited and reasonably considered.

There is a bright future for risk management practitioners as the benefits of sound AI risk management strategies become increasingly recognized throughout the business community.
