Main Topics

Artificial Intelligence: Applications and Risk Management

AI’s transformative potential is evident in various areas, such as customer service, brand management, operations, and organizational culture. Recently, its applications have expanded to include risk management and compliance. However, the deployment of AI can introduce new hazards, such as amplifying biases or generating incomprehensible judgments. While integrated audit software systems are necessary to oversee current and future risks, is this all we need?

Technology: Current Status and Innovations

Some notable advancements include:

  • The Metaverse: Blurring the lines between digital and physical worlds, with applications ranging from medical treatments to organizing farmers and boosting productivity.
  • Hydrogen Engines: Gaining traction as a sustainable energy source for high-performance cars and everyday use.
  • Geothermal Energy: Emerging as a viable option for achieving unlimited and sustainable energy.
