How Cathy is building a better working world

“I’m working with thought leaders across industries, academia and the government to develop leading practices to build and operate AI in a trusted fashion. AI’s transformative potential is high, but its risks are significant, complex and fast-evolving. Adopting a set of core principles to guide AI-related design, decisions and future innovations will cultivate both confidence and discipline as these technologies evolve.”
