Background As Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to rapidly revolutionize businesses and redefine the way we live and work, it becomes crucial to understand and manage risks that are unique to AI. This workshop aims at discussing the approach to effectively assess and mitigate these risks. Such understanding and mitigation of risks is a sine quo non for responsible and ethical deployment of AI technologies. Alongside understanding of AI centric risks and its mitigation, this workshop will also consider the potential impacts of AI on various aspects of organizational functioning, including data privacy, cybersecurity, workforce dynamics, and business processes. At the workshop, we will delve into real-world case studies, examining both successful implementations and notable pitfalls.
