N.Y., Nov 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM
(NYSE:IBM) today announced that watsonx.governance will be
generally available in early December to help businesses shine a
light on AI models and eliminate the mystery around the data going
in, and the answers coming out.
While generative AI, powered by Large Language Models (LLM) or
Foundation Models, offers many use cases for businesses, it also
poses new risks and complexities, including training data scraped
from corners of the internet that cannot be validated as fair and
accurate, all the way to a lack of explainable outputs.
Watsonx.governance provides organizations with the toolkit they
need to manage risk, embrace transparency, and anticipate
compliance with future AI-focused regulation.
As businesses today are looking to innovate with AI, deploying a
mix of LLMs from tech providers and open sources communities,
watsonx enables them to manage, monitor and govern models from
wherever they choose.
"Company boards and CEOs are looking to reap the rewards from
today's more powerful AI models, but the risks due to a lack of
transparency and inability to govern these models have been holding
them back," said Kareem Yusuf, Ph.D,
Senior Vice President, Product Management and Growth, IBM Software.
"Watsonx.governance is a one-stop-shop for businesses that are
struggling to deploy and manage both LLM and ML models, giving
businesses the tools, they need to automate AI governance
processes, monitor their models, and take corrective action, all
with increased visibility. Its ability to translate regulations
into enforceable policies will only become more essential for
enterprises as new AI regulation takes hold worldwide."
