AI is everywhere, growing in its reach throughout business and society. As AI continues to rapidly evolve, it’s becoming a partner among people, with unprecedented access and impact on the ways people work and live. Responding to the Accenture Technology Vision 2018 survey, four out of five executives agree that within the next two years, AI will work next to humans in their organizations, as a coworker, collaborator, and trusted advisor.

Kishore Durg explains why, now, more than ever, deploying AI is about more than training it to perform a given task. It’s about “raising” it to act as a responsible representative of the business and a contributing member of society. By creating a responsible, explainable AI system, businesses will build trust with not only their customers but also their employees, who are understandably wary of intelligent but opaque systems making decisions that directly affect their lives.

This keynote is sponsored by Accenture.
