AI assurance – protecting next-gen business innovation

by Dr Carolina Sanchez and Dr Maya Dillon | Apr 27, 2023

AI will transform business and society. The revolution is already in play, but nagging concerns linger over AI ethics and safety, particularly in areas such as autonomous AI security or decision-making systems. There are also worries, of course, that AI will replace human workers, leading to job losses and increased inequality. At the extreme, some argue that AI could become uncontrollable, leading to unintended consequences and potentially catastrophic outcomes.

Against this backdrop, it is AI assurance – also referred to as trustworthy AI – that can act as protection for your business future. Scroll down to for a CC Innovation Briefing that reveals the commercial and societal value of AI assurance, while unpacking the holistic approach that is necessary to implement lasting and effective change. We explain ethical AI, explore specific AI assurance industry use cases, and plot the purpose, design, context and interactions of AI on the successful journey from automation to autonomy.

Very few companies have managed to develop and integrate an ideal AI assurance process. But those that have are leaders in the AI solutions market. Our paper explains that although the benefits of AI are significant, you must be vigilant in making sure your systems are developed and used responsibly. By implementing AI assurance and taking steps to address the potential risks and challenges, you’ll be best placed to unlock the full potential of AI – and so drive innovation, growth and positive societal impact.
