AI challenges and opportunities: considerations for boards

This webcast will explore four ways that boards can support the responsible, effective and strategic use of artificial intelligence.

Join the EY Center for Board Matters on Thursday, June 20, at 11:00 a.m. ET for another episode in our webcast series, Better Questions for Boards, designed to provide directors with insights and questions to consider as they engage with management on a variety of complex boardroom issues.

Companies continue to make significant investments in AI as the technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Directors are working to cut through the noise and focus on helping companies strategically use AI and better understand the related risks. During this webcast we will highlight four focus areas for boards, including:

  • Building a strong foundation for data use
  • Supporting the integration of AI into the organization
  • Weaving responsible AI into the fabric of the company
  • Enhancing the effectiveness of board oversight

Across each of these areas, panelists will discuss where boards should focus and what actions they can take. The 75-minute webcast will be moderated by Kris Pederson, EY Americas Center for Board Matters Leader.

Panelists will include:

  • Ted Acosta, Americas Strategic Relationships Leader, Ernst & Young LLP
  • Debbie Dial, Board Director, Dow, Hubbell
  • Dan Diasio, Global Artificial Intelligence Consulting Leader, Ernst & Young LLP
  • Tobias Yergin, Head of Product and Gen AI, Walmart
