How to govern AI? Risks and Responsibilities along the Value Chain The recent months have been marked by heated debates around the world on how to govern AI. Particular attention has been given to increasingly advanced general purpose AI models and the applications building on them. This keynote explores how the rapid technological advancement of these AI models and their integration into everyday life give rise to risks along their value chain. We will explore the complex dependencies between companies that develop these AI models and those that deploy them, highlighting the unique challenges this presents across a range of risks.
