Foley is thrilled to partner with the California Technology Council on the Artificial Intelligence Podcast Series as part of our combined efforts to help foster high-tech innovation, collaboration, and growth across the state and beyond. The series dives deep into areas of data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, and features Foley attorneys, clients, and other industry contacts as thought leaders on trending topics in AI.
Our series continues with Part Two of a conversation between CTC chief executive Matt Gardner and featured guest Ken DeJarnette, an expert in technology risk who recently retired from a successful career as global risk and reputation leader at Deloitte. Ken talks about his experience working with management teams to foster the right environment for decision support, creating frameworks for analysis, and establishing the right business ethics for using these tools.

In one of the discussion highlights, Ken notes, “It’s important that you treat people fairly. If you’re using algorithms, you need to understand them.” He also suggests considerations for maintaining the human interface with decision systems. A company would not want to invite an AI system to make personnel decisions, for example. Ken then goes on to offer an approach for companies to have an ethical framework and teach their teams how to utilize it.
If you missed Part One of this inaugural first episode, you can listen to it here. Part One opens with Antoinette Konski, Managing Partner of Foley’s Silicon Valley office, who offers listeners a look ahead at future topics the AI podcast series will explore. Matt and Ken then dive into setting the stage for the series by exploring business trends in the use and culture around data tools for decision support.
