AI Readiness & Compliance

Background

In today’s digital landscape, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the primary driving force behind transformative change. As technology guru Ray Kurzweil aptly puts it, “AI is already responsible for a 66% increase in labor productivity in the United States, equivalent to 47 years of natural gains.”

But this potential brings risk and responsibility.  “In 2020 AI-related errors, including hallucinations, resulted in a staggering $2.3 billion in financial losses, underscoring the need for responsible AI.” (1)

The Synergist team has coupled a proprietary AFFIRM software solution with a suite of professional services to assist our clients in preparing for this change.

Organizational Readiness for AI:

 

AI Insight & Action | Elevating AI Awareness | Workforce AI Empowerment

Our team begins by conducting employee surveys to gauge the current level of AI awareness and proficiency within your workforce. For instance, in a manufacturing setting, these surveys might reveal that employees are primarily familiar with AI-driven automation on the production line but lack awareness of AI's potential in predictive maintenance. Based on these insights, we provide tailored recommendations for factors such as training programs to upskill employees, establishing robust governance frameworks to oversee AI implementations, and fostering a culture that encourages safe AI-driven innovation and collaboration.

 

AI Awareness & Blind Spot Detection: Do you know where you're using AI?

AI Risk Detection | Blind Spot Illumination | Data Privacy Safeguarding

Unidentified AI systems may inadvertently access and process sensitive customer data, potentially leading to data breaches and privacy violations.  Our approach identifies AI engagement across your organization, shedding light on potential blind spots.

 

Understanding AI Types and Systems:

AI Type Clarity | Bias & Reliability Analysis | Deep AI Insight

We provide insights into the types of AI utilized allowing you to understand the integrity behind the insights. For example, our analysis might reveal the utilization of Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms to enhance customer support interactions or Computer Vision AI for image recognition in your e-commerce platform.  Synergist goes beyond surface-level awareness by conducting a deep inventory and analysis of the Learning and Language Models (LLM) that your AI systems rely on. This not only helps gauge their reliability but also allows you to pinpoint potential biases or prejudices that may influence decision-making processes.

 

AI Learning Mode Auditing:

AI Precision Assurance | Risk Tolerance Definition | Tailored Risk Mitigation Strategies

Accuracy Evaluation: Ensuring AI Precision for Critical Tasks: We specialize in assessing the accuracy of AI models for tasks that hold paramount importance to your organization. For instance, in the healthcare sector, we will evaluate the precision of diagnostic AI systems, determining whether the achieved accuracy percentage aligns with industry standards and meets your specific healthcare needs.

Risk Tolerance Analysis: We guide our clients in defining and quantifying your organization's risk tolerance.  As example a FinTech client may implement AI for algorithmic trading.  Here, we help you establish clear risk thresholds, ensuring that AI-driven trading strategies remain within acceptable boundaries to safeguard your investments and minimize potential financial losses. Our analysis provides valuable insights into risk mitigation strategies tailored to your specific AI applications.

 

Accountability & Discrimination Checks:

 

AI Accountability | Ethical AI Practices | Bias-Free Decision Making

We take AI accountability seriously and help you maintain transparency and fairness in AI decision-making processes. For instance, consider an HR department utilizing AI for resume screening. Our proprietary audit function ensures that the AI system is not inadvertently discriminating against candidates based on factors like gender or ethnicity. We help you uphold ethical standards and prevent discriminatory practices in your hiring processes by providing actionable insights and recommendations.
