Dragonfly launches advisory AI services, bringing the latest industry developments and research to your project, to help manage risk, govern AI solution delivery, and verify quality

AI systems are not like other systems and building software that acts like humans is not like building other software. The growth of adoption continues, but the focus is too often on the technology rather than the business problems. The hype and pressure to be seen to innovate means businesses often implement low-quality solutions, and fail to consider all the risks that are unique to this field.

IT governance, risk management, verification and validation techniques are evolving rapidly to handle new problems posed by artificial intelligence and machine learning. Our advisory services are able to bring the latest industry developments and research to your business.

Our services include:

  • End to end governance, including procurement, taking a holistic view of AI systems and their use in a business context.

  • Risk management, including ethics and privacy focussed risks. AI must be trustworthy to gain adoption, and organisations need to demonstrate responsible use.

  • Specialist quality assurance and testing strategies. The old approaches don't work... we are the market leader in applying quality methods to AI solutions.

  • Staff training and change management. Many of our advisory activities are on the leading-edge of industry best-practice. We can train your teams in the approaches we use to up-skill your experts.

Our experience in delivering complex systems, coupled with our access to top talent in the AI governance sphere, gives us a unique ability to help organisations safely implement solutions without risking their brand.

Having Nick join Steve as established leaders in the consulting sector, means Dragonfly will benefit from their unique perspectives, enthusiasm and team work.”

Nick says, “I am thrilled to be joining such an established and talented team. Dragonfly is at the forefront of its industry, bringing out strong IP-based technology solutions to capitalise and build on its strong and established consulting and people capabilities.”
