Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to be a term that is greatly misunderstood among the general public. A reasonable risk management approach to the use of AI tools by public managers must carefully consider both potential positive and negative outcomes, opportunities, and challenges. Please join AFERM and IBM Center for The Business of Government to hear more about the government’s broad risk management approach to AI, a risk management framework for when and how government can and should consider using AI tools, and two innovative case studies.
