Business Advancements in Focus: Executive AI Training Course

Business Advancements in Focus: Executive AI Training Course

AmCham staff and members participated in a two-part Executive Training course on Artificial intelligence (AI) provided by Simula Learning during April.

The course was developed for business executives with limited technical experience to familiarize themselves with the terminology and concepts of AI.

Day 1 focused on introducing participants to Artificial Intelligence with basic definitions, including data sources and methods, as well as defining machine learning and a general understanding of neural networks. Participants were then given the opportunity to teach a self-driving robot to avoid falling off a table. 

Day 2 focused on use cases of AI, machine learning techniques, privacy and ethics around AI, implementation for respective industries as well as opportunities and limitations for the future of AI. Participants worked in groups to design an AI system for an education use case. Looking at future technology the session covered several fascinating projects in natural language processing, coding, and image generation.

The class was taught by PhD-candidate Hanna Borgli and Associate Professor Håkon Kvale Stensland from Simula.

Press Release: US Chamber Releases Artificial Intelligence Principles

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The US Chamber’s Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) and Center for Global Regulatory Cooperation (GRC) today released 10 policy principles governing the use and regulation of artificial intelligence (AI).

The principles were crafted in collaboration with more than 50 of the Chamber’s member companies, representing all sizes and sectors of the American business community, and emphasize the need for a sensible and innovation-forward approach to address both the challenges and opportunities of AI.

“The advent of artificial intelligence will revolutionize businesses of all sizes and industries and has the potential to bring significant opportunities and challenges to the way Americans live and work, said Tim Day, Senior Vice President, Chamber Technology Engagement Center. “The US Chamber’s artificial intelligence principles place the Chamber at the forefront of the national conversations on AI and will serve as a comprehensive guide to address the policy issues pertaining to AI for federal, state, and local policymakers.”

The Chamber also endorsed the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s recommendations on AI. Drafted with leadership from the United States and adopted by over 40 partner countries, the recommendations are a flexible governance standard that promotes the responsible stewardship of trustworthy AI.

“As leaders in the development and use of AI, the US business community has a strong interest in supporting a global AI ecosystem,” said Sean Heather, Senior Vice President of International Regulatory Affairs, U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “Foreign capitals are looking to promote trustworthy AI, without undermining innovation. We encourage them to turn to the Chamber as a partner and to our principles for guidance.”

The US Chamber will continue to work with US legislators and regulators to ensure America leads the way in developing and deploying artificial intelligence.
