Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the world at warp speed. Impacts are felt in business, education, government, and everything in between. That’s why the AI Global Council was formed. This group of leaders from varied backgrounds and experiences has united to think through the implications of advancing AI technologies, policies, and ethics.
Each AI Global Council member brings a unique and necessary point of view to the conversation. Today, we’re introducing Ryan Johnson, a senior director of data and AI at GoGuardian.
Johnson’s one thing on AI
We asked each of the AI Global Council board members to share one piece of advice in the AI space. Johnson’s piece of advice is to keep data top-of-mind as you explore the potential of AI.
“Think more about data,” Johnson said. “With all the exciting, new use cases for generative AI, it’s easy to forget that data is the foundation upon which all this innovation is built.”
