Impact of artificial intelligence on risk management

AI has great potential to streamline risk management by swiftly and accurately analyzing large datasets. However, it also presents significant challenges. Issues like "AI black boxes," where decision-making processes lack transparency, pose concerns for users and regulators. Moreover, potential abuses and errors in AI could result in severe financial and operational consequences.

For the upcoming HumanTech Meeting, we have partnered with the "AI: Game Changer 2024" initiative to delve into the risks linked with artificial intelligence that demand careful and strategic handling.

Dr. Konrad Maj, head of SWPS University's HumanTech Center, and D. Eng. Piotr Senkus, an AI expert from the University of Warsaw's Faculty of Economics Department of Management and Information Technology, are organizing this event. Keynote speakers include business practitioners Andrew Tollinton, co-founder of SIRV Systems Limited (UK), and Urszula Jessen from ECE Group Services (Germany).

The discussion panel following the lectures will tackle critical questions about AI's impact on risk management. For instance, how does reliance on autonomous AI systems affect financial stability, cybersecurity, and data integrity? What strategies can we employ to manage risks associated with potential errors and manipulations in AI algorithms? Are decisions made by machines as reliable as those made by humans? Join us to explore real-world case studies and learn from experts in the field of AI-driven risk management.

The event will be conducted in English. It will take place in a hybrid format, both online and at the International Management Centre at the University of Warsaw.

HumanTech Meetings

We live in an era of innovation, technological progress and digitalization. This current innovation drive may lead to unpredictable psychological and social outcomes. Therefore, it is crucial to establish collaborations between engineers, programmers, IT specialists and social scientists during initial phases of any new projects related to development of new technologies or services. Such collaborations may help to avoid mistakes and can support better development of new ideas.

The project is planned as a series of meetings, gathering academics and professionals from the technology sector from Poland and other countries. Each meeting will include two lectures, one delivered by a speaker from Poland and one presented by a guest from another country. The lectures will be followed by panel discussions, where panelists will represent different approaches to innovation and technology.

HumanTech Meetings is a project of SWPS University's Center for Social and Technological Innovation.

  1. Andrew Tollinton: Will Risk Management Drive AI Adoption?

    While most enterprises counter inflation and low growth by cutting expenditures, one budget has grown significantly over the last year: AI. However, what this means for society is uncertain. In the 17th century, Thomas Hobbes proposed that the primary purpose of government is to provide its citizens with a secure society. Hobbes’ elevation of security above all else perhaps gives us an insight into where AI adoption will be the greatest. In this thought-provoking presentation, I’ll explore one vision of how AI will impact security and risk management in the next few years, drawing from my experience of introducing AI to risk management functions. We will explore the question: Is human motivation a guide to AI adoption? By examining the parallels between Hobbes’ philosophy and the driving forces behind AI implementation, we can gain valuable insights into the future of risk management. Furthermore, we will address the potential risks in AI mediating man, as the increasing reliance on AI systems raises concerns about the consequences of delegating decision-making to machines. To effectively communicate AI’s value to clients, I will introduce the three promises of AI and how they can revolutionize risk management practices. However, we must also confront the issue of bias in risk management and explore strategies to mitigate its impact.

  2. Urszula Jessen: Venturing into Monte Carlo: Exploring the Risks and Opportunities of Generative AI in Risk Management

    This keynote delves into the profound integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in risk management, marking a significant shift from conventional methods to cutting-edge AI-driven techniques. The discussion begins with a review of established risk management practices, such as Monte Carlo simulations, which have long been essential for quantifying risks and uncertainties in various sectors. The talk then broadens to include other AI-driven methodologies, like predictive analytics, machine learning algorithms for pattern recognition in large datasets, and neural networks that simulate potential outcomes to assist in decision-making processes. The narrative progresses to the transformative capabilities of generative AI, particularly Large Language Models (LLMs), which enhance scenario simulations and decision-making processes in fields such as finance, cybersecurity, and healthcare. The presentation poses critical questions about these models' ability to redefine risk assessment and explores the potential shape of future AI-driven risk management solutions. It questions whether the role of risk managers will evolve or diminish as AI technologies become more autonomous in the next five years. Addressing the challenges of generative AI, the presentation delves into critical issues such as algorithmic bias, data hallucination, and the black boxes of AI decision-making. These concerns are crucial for developing trustworthy and ethical AI systems in risk management.
