How to operationalize Trustworthy AI Models in production


Using AI for business solutions and operations has become mandatory for organizations today. Most of the organizations today are using various technologies and platforms to develop (and deploy) AI models based on choices and skills of data scientists in different groups. However, ensuring Trustworthiness of those AI Models is of paramount importance for every organization.for various reasons starting from social responsibility, compliance to legal compliance, audit requirements, to assurance of overall business value. The requirements to make an AI Model trustworthy run across the areas of Independent Validation of Models; Continuous Monitoring of Model Performance (Accuracy, Bias, Drift, etc) in Production; Model Interpretability; Controlled sourcing and reuse of Data, Features and Packages; Model Facts; Approval steps in Model Lifecycle; Change Management, etc. In this session you will learn how AI models developed and deployed in Heterogeneous platforms can be Operationalized keeping above requirements fulfilled but customized based on an organization's governance requirements. Attendees would also learn the technology agnostic key principles those can be used to ensure trustworthiness of AI Models.
