Executive Opinion

Scott Frederick, Partner at Sands Capital, said, "Credo AI is at the forefront of the Responsible AI movement with a leadership team whose primary mission is to help organizations create AI systems with the highest ethical standards. AI has the power to augment essentially every part of our lives but can cause irreparable damage to our society without proper governance. Credo AI helps enterprises on their Responsible AI governance journey by bridging the gap between their technical and business stakeholders to successfully keep AI applications compliant and aligned with industry-specific standards."

JoAnn Stonier, EVP, and Chief Data Officer, Mastercard, said, "Mastercard has been an early champion of Responsible AI development and governance and has been committed to the ethical use of data to power a wide range of business results as well as drive financial and inclusion across the world. We are committed to constantly evaluating our efforts in this area and are happy to be partnering with Credo AI's Responsible AI platform to extend our governance model further. These types of partnerships, tools, and techniques assist us in furthering our governance process while improving our time to market."
