October 20th | 1:00pm CDT
Usually when we think “governance” we think ”slow”, “bottleneck”, “anti-innovation”. But the right AI Governance approach goes beyond ethical AI, fairness and bias and also provides:
  • Visibility to the business contribution of AI efforts and investments
  • Freedom to innovate with the latest tools and techniques
  • Faster resolution of problems with less finger pointing and wasted efforts
Why attend? DS, AI CoE and CDAO teams will learn how to:
  • Show the ROI of their AI initiatives
  • Automate the full model life cycle and establish seamless handoffs across teams
  • Define and implement reusable governance templates
  • Automatically ensure all AI Governance policies (e.g. ethics and fairness) are enforced
October 27th | 1:00pm CDT
Scaling AI for an enterprise means more than more data, more compute, bigger speeds and feeds. Enterprise IT Architects need to accommodate multiple DSML tools, data systems and serving environments. In addition to the migration to cloud or multi-cloud, the dockerization journey, the increasing use of 3rd party AI models and 4th party AI. How do you implement enterprise standards for Operations and Governance, without stifling innovation and adding complexity?
November 22 | Virtual
November 28-30 | Toronto
Meet our co-founder Stu Bailey  onsite to discuss how to:

On-Demand Sessions

2022 ModelOps Summit
Join your peers, colleagues, industry and thought leaders, as well as experts in business and technology on Thursday, April 28 at 10 am ET (3 pm GMT), for the second annual virtual ModelOps Summit.

Together, we will dive deep into ModelOps best practices and trends for the future, exploring the challenges at the forefront of AI and ML operations, governance, and risk.
Model Risk Industrialization: A Mandate for MRM Teams in the Age of AI
The growth in AI adoption is accompanied with a parallel growth in regulations targeted at minimizing the risk inherent in AI. Many financial institutions have risk management processes and teams; however, the processes are typically manual and require highly trained model validators, which are in short supply. Because of this, Model Risk teams are unable to keep pace with the growing number of new models, in conjunction with the substantial backlog of existing model validations, re-validations, and annual reviews. This presentation provides real life experiences about how to solve this growing pain.
Model Risk: How the Speed of Digitization Changes Risk
Digital disruption is part of your workflow now and adapting your approach to handling model risk in light of the speed this brings is imperative. In this panel discussion, Banking industry insiders share their strategies for managing this, and still maintaining control and quality.
Panelists:
  • Stu Bailey, Co-founder and Chief Enterprise AI Architect, ModelOp
  • Agus Sudjianto, EVP, Head of Corporate Model Risk, Wells Fargo
  • Krish Swamy, Senior Vice President – Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics and BI, Wells Fargo
  • Harish Sharma, Advisor, TruEra
  • Julian Horky, Head of Risk Controlling, Berenberg Capital Markets
End-to-End Governance and Scale of AI and Model Driven Initiatives
Enterprises have strict risk, regulatory and compliance policies today. When it comes to AI, those policies are continuing to evolve. In this presentation, ModelOp Co-founder and Chief Enterprise AI Architect, Stu Bailey shares a case study of a large financial institution that is using AI to better add new layers of defense for fraud detection, and how they successfully established an audit ready ModelOps practice that also reduced model operational costs by 50%.
Leveraging AI as a Source of Competitive Advantage
Enterprises are investing in AI with the intent that it creates market differentiation for them through unique service offerings and improved business operations. But ModelOps (Model Operations) of AI models is still a barrier to high-quality and scalable AI for many organizations. In this discussion, the panelists discuss challenges and best practices for ModelOps based on lessons learned from industry leaders.
Panelists:
  • Dave Trier, VP Product, ModelOp
  • Agus Sudjianto, EVP, Head of Corporate Model Risk, Wells Fargo
  • Jacob Kosoff, Head of Model Risk, Regions Bank
  • Richa Sachdev, Head of Machine Learning Engineering, Vanguard

Governance and Risk Management of AI and ML Models
Model risk management isn’t new to Risk and Compliance teams, but AI and machine learning models are. AI and ML models require stringent controls and governance over the processes used to operate them and their outcomes. Creating an automated ModelOps process allows firms to grow and scale their AI initiatives while enforcing the governance, business and risk controls that are not only expected, but required.

In this online discussion featuring executives from ModelOp, Regions Bank, Wells Fargo and Goldman Sachs, learn how model risk management teams can enhance model operations processes to ensure regulatory, compliance and risk requirements and controls are enforced and auditable.
ModelOps vs MLOps – What’s the difference and why should you care
In this presentation from the MLOps: Machine Learning in Production – New York conference, Jim Olsen, CTO at ModelOp, discusses and shows how ModelOps, the discipline of managing all types of models and MLOps, managing only machine learning models, are different in model operational requirements.
