A market shift could lead to more diversified and resilient AI strategies, predicted Sarah Nagy, co-founder and CEO of generative AI startup Seek AI.

"AI startups with advanced teams and private models are more in control of their tech stack. However, startups relying on OpenAI with sophisticated integration or building only on top of OpenAI APIs are at risk of endangering their products," Nagy said.

Nagy said there is a tradeoff between AI advancement and responsible AI development. Seek AI focuses on the middle ground as a B2B company by prioritizing AI governance and safety protocols to ensure clients receive accurate and reliable data from their data warehouses.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Nagy discussed:

  • Lessons learned from the OpenAI leadership crisis;
  • Trust and governance issues;
  • Balancing AI advancement with responsible development.

Nagy founded and leads Seek AI, a startup that offers generative AI for data that's breaking through the information barriers slowing down business. She previously led the consumer data team at Citadel's Ashler Capital and led enterprise data product development at two startups, Edison and Predata. Nagy started her career as a quant at ITG, developing algorithmic trading strategies.
