A primary focus of the program is tackling the intrinsic challenges surrounding trust, accountability, security and return on investment (ROI) that often accompany AI implementations.  We will also cover the Biden administration’s executive order on artificial intelligence and its call for new standards, funding, training and enforcement to mitigate AI risks, while also paving the way for the technology's widespread adoption. Finally, on Friday, we’ll dive deep into some practical real world AI tech experiences impacting business now and in the near term. 

For more information and the current Agenda:



In April 2023, CMU and PwC held the inaugural University Exchange focused on The evolution of AI, trust and value.  The sold-out program included dozens of senior executives, CMU Faculty and thought leaders. The program also featured the CMU/PwC Digital Transformation and Innovation Center, to highlight the ongoing research across the spectrum of AI applications to help business leaders boost productivity, increase profits and enhance experiences in a responsible manner.
