10:00 AM Trust in AI

Trust and interpretability are vital in allowing asset allocators to increase investment in AI driven funds.  What are the latest developments, and how can you separate the claims from the facts.

Session preview:
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been increasingly hyped over the past few years. This is led to both great hope and great anxiety, primarily rooted in an assumption of how much the output of AI can be trusted. Here we examine some popular examples and posit a framework for how to incorporate AI into existing systems while trusting it neither too much nor too little. Our approach is geared towards utilizing AI for tasks where it is strong while implementing multiple controls that mitigate risk in regimes in which it is weak. Notably, this requires multiple touchpoints with experts in a partnership of human and machine.
