Qlik establishes AI Council

Data analytics company Qlik has established a new AI Council to help accelerate the responsible development of its AI-based product portfolio.

The new council will work to help guide Qlik’s R&D direction, inform its product development roadmap and ensure its AI tools are built with responsibility and ethics front of mind.

It has been established in response to Qlik research finding that 31% of senior executives are planning to spend over US$10 million ($15.2 million) on generative AI initiatives in 2024 alone. Meanwhile, 79% have already invested in in generative AI tools or projects.

The AI council will consist of AI experts from across the world, including Kelly Forbes, the co-founder and executive director of the AI Asia Pacific Institute.

Other council members include Nina Schick, founder of an advisory firm based on GenAI; Dr Rumman Chowdhury, CEO and co-founder of tech non-profit Humane Intelligence; and Dr Michael Bronstein, a DeepMind Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Oxford.

Qlik CEO Mike Capone said the formation of the new council reflects the company’s commitment to ethically advancing AI.

“Our goal is crystal clear: to enable our customers to harness AI in a way that’s not only transformative, but also responsible,” he said. “By uniting a cadre of AI luminaries, we are sharpening our focus on delivering AI solutions that are not just cutting-edge, but also seamlessly integrated and governed. This initiative is a pivotal chapter in our journey, marking a bold move towards democratising AI in a manner that is both accessible and aligned with our core mission of driving substantial, data-driven business outcomes.”
