"In 2021, governance oversight isn’t just of people and balance sheets, it is also about governing machines, data and innovations. Today, AI is all around us and has the power to autonomously learn and make its own, or significantly influence, decisions. This must have checks and balances to unleash the positive value and manage risks that senior leaders have the responsibility to monitor."
