Professional services firm Ernst & Young (EY) has leveraged the Microsoft Azure platform in the development of a solution designed to help enterprises quantify the impact and trustworthiness of artificial intelligence (AI) systems.

The EY Trusted AI platform was developed on the EY Client Technology Platform with the help of Microsoft Azure, and designed to offer its users an integrated approach to evaluate, monitor and quantify the impact and trustworthiness of AI.

The firm claims this is a first of its kind solution for the industry and is expected to be made available later in 2019.

“Currently, a lack of trust is the leading barrier to the adoption of AI,” said Cathy Cobey, global trusted artificial intelligence advisory leader at EY. “If AI is to reach its full potential, we need a more granular view – the ability to predict conditions that amplify risks and then target mitigation strategies for risks that may undermine trust, while still considering traditional system risks such as reliability, performance and security.”

“Sponsors and users alike want to develop AI in a transparent, accountable and therefore trusted manner,” added Cobey. “This innovative EY capability is a significant step toward reaching that goal.”
