“Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a hot topic for business”, said Sue Williams, Managing Director at Hexagon Consultants. “There’s lots of headlines about how AI can transform businesses and increase value, and there’s also been a significant increase in the number of companies offering AI services.”
“But with all these opportunities comes risk. Whether it’s ensuring that AI systems cause no harm to an individual, or protecting your investment by making sure it achieves its objectives, creating or using AI comes with responsibility.”
“RAII and Hexagon Consultants share a passion for responsible AI. We are proud to be working together for AI we can trust.”
Ashley Casovan, Executive Director at Responsible AI Institute, said: “RAII is proud to be leading the way in Responsible AI certification. As our UK, and Europe delivery partner, Hexagon Consultants Limited will be bringing their leadership and expertise in helping organizations scale and grow their Responsible AI practices.”
