Report Discusses Risks of Artificial Intelligence Data Use
May 10, 2018
In its new research report, Artificial Intelligence – The Data Below, the Internal Audit Foundation aims to help practitioners distinguish how artificial intelligence (“AI”) uses data differently than standard information technology. The report analyzes how AI-based applications’ use of data impacts auditing AI applications. It also covers how and why internal auditors must change their audit approach to manage data use by AI applications.
Topics covered in the report include the difference between auditing AI applications and auditing traditional information technology; the challenges of how AI leverages data and how an auditor should comprehend data concepts and controls and AI methods to data analysis when creating an AI system audit; and the role of AI and data governance.
