ForHumanity’s Risk Management Framework for AAA Systems is a comprehensive implementable approach to examining risk associated with all aspects of AI, Algorithmic and Autonomous Systems.  It will include teachings on Risk Foundations, Risk Scope, Risk Taxonomy, Risk Inputs/Indicators, Risk Evaluation, Risk Assessment and Risk Treatment.  It will examine the documentation of Residual Risk and associated disclosures.  We will operationalize all aspects of the RMF including templates for Algorithmic Risk Assessments and the inclusion of Diverse Inputs & Multi stakeholder Feedback.  The class will examine the role of committees, governance structures and the manner in which the RMF plugs into ISO 31000 and traditional ERMs and ORMs.  We will examine four lines of defense including integration with Independent Audit of AI Systems.  When completed the learner can expect to be prepared to install the risk management framework for clients or employers.

Pre-Requisite for this course is Foundation of Independent Audit of AI Systems.

This course, taught by Ryan Carrier, FHCA and Shea Brown, ForHumanity Fellow will prepare the student to become a ForHumanity Certified Auditor in the New York City Automated Employment Decision (AEDT) tool Bias Audit.  The class meets daily at 9:30 to 10:00 am ET live from August 29th to Sept 19th.  The course is available at the same time asynchronously as the recordings and quizzes are available each day after class.  Students will learn all relevant criteria to becoming an expert in conduct an audit using ForHumanity's NYC AEDT Bias Audit Criteria.  The class covers the scope, lawful basis, relevant definitions, governance/oversight/accountability, disparate impact studies, bias mitigation tests and controls, reporting requirements, training requirements, candidate notices and general risk management assuring compliance with NYC Local Law #144.  An FHCA credential is issued upon completion of the exam.  We expect the class to be useful to the following students:
