As AI application scenarios continue to evolve and diversify, enterprises and other relevant stakeholders are bound to face a myriad of opportunities and challenges at different levels. It is imperative for enterprises to adapt to these changes proactively, integrating AI technology into their corporate governance framework, and enhancing both internal and external governance mechanisms. This proactive approach is essential not only for the day-to-day operations and management of enterprises but also for fostering the long-term, sustainable growth of the AI industry. By aligning AI technology with robust governance practices, enterprises can pave the way for mutually beneficial development and ensure a win-win outcome for all stakeholders involved.
