Our artificial intelligence (AI) and risk expert colleagues across the world have worked in the corporate world to acquire knowledge and expertise. AI and risk researchers and practitioners have had a profound impact on our thinking and on the contents of this book. Subsequently, working with many corporate customers and serving them has greatly influenced the preparation of this material.
