aiTech‌ ‌Trend‌ ‌Interview‌ ‌with‌ Talya Stone, Chief Marketing Officer at Permutable AI

What motivated you to be a part of and how has the company evolved since its inception?

I was motivated to join the company because I believe that  AI has the potential to revolutionize the way we approach sustainability and create positive impact for our planet. I saw the incredible work that Permutable was doing in the field of sustainability analytics in terms of driving transparency and accountability of corporate sustainability commitments, and I knew I wanted to part of that journey to speed up much needed action in this area. Since its inception, and in a very short time, Permutable AI has evolved to become a leader in the sustainable AI space, providing cutting-edge solutions to address critical ESG challenges and I am proud to be part of a team that is working on such innovative solutions in such an urgent area.

How do you see AI evolving in the next 5-10 years, and what role do you see playing in that evolution?

I think things are happening way faster than most people realise. Although AI can be a force for good, I think it can also be scary and the discussion around AI and ethics is a big one that we need to take more seriously on a widespread basis. In the next 5-10 years, I see AI rapidly evolving to become even more integrated into our daily lives, transforming industries across the board. Although this is already happening, I think this is going to increase rapidly to a point of singularity. Permutable AI is well-positioned to play a crucial role in this evolution, leveraging our expertise in sustainable AI to help companies make more informed decisions about their environmental, social, and governance impact. We also feel a strong sense of stewardship in the team. We talk and worry about the evolution of AI daily as although there will be many positive impacts such as solving problems that humans have not been able to for the greater good, there will also be a dark side to be dealt with in terms of its impact on humanity.

What is your vision for and how do you see the company shaping the future of AI?

My vision for Permutable AI is to continue to push the boundaries of what is possible with sustainable AI, driving real change and impact for our planet. We are committed to addressing the ethical implications of AI development and deployment, and are taking steps to ensure responsible and ethical use of our technology. Ultimately we want to be world’s conscience and the go-to AI company for solving complex problems around sustainability issues – and perhaps others in future!

In your opinion, what are the biggest challenges facing the AI industry today and how is addressing them?

The biggest challenges facing the AI industry today include issues around data privacy, bias and transparency, as well as the ethical implications of AI development and deployment. At Permutable AI, we are addressing these challenges through a combination of rigorous ethical standards and advanced technologies. We are committed to building responsible AI systems that prioritize transparency, fairness, and privacy, and we work closely with our clients to ensure that our solutions meet their needs while adhering to the highest ethical and technical standards. We also prioritize ongoing research and development to stay at the forefront of the AI industry and help shape the future of responsible AI.

How does balance the ethical implications of AI with its potential benefits, and what steps are you taking to ensure responsible AI development and deployment?

At, we recognize the importance of responsible AI development and deployment. We continuously review our AI systems and ensure they align with ethical standards. Our team is also continuously researching and staying up-to-date on industry best practices and regulations to ensure we are operating ethically. Additionally, we place a strong emphasis on transparency and explainability in our AI systems, allowing for better accountability and understanding of how our AI operates. By prioritizing ethical considerations in our AI development and deployment, we aim to mitigate potential harms and ensure that our AI technology is used for the greater good.

What sets apart from other AI companies in the industry, and how do you maintain your competitive edge?

Our focus on sustainability and our deep understanding of the ESG landscape. We maintain our competitive edge by staying at the forefront of sustainable AI research and development, and by collaborating closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and challenges.

How does approach innovation and stay ahead of the curve in a rapidly evolving AI landscape?

At Permutable AI, we approach innovation with a mindset of curiosity and experimentation, constantly seeking out new ideas and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. We have adapted quickly to the changing business environment brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, leveraging our technology to help our clients navigate these uncertain times.

What advice do you have for other leaders who are considering integrating AI into their business operations?

My advice for other leaders considering integrating AI into their business operations is to start with a clear vision and a deep understanding of how AI can help drive their specific business objectives. It’s important to prioritize transparency and accountability, and to consider the ethical implications of AI from the outset.

What is one lesson you’ve learned as a C-level executive in the AI industry that you would pass on to other aspiring leaders?

One lesson I’ve learned as a C-level executive in the AI industry is the importance of collaboration and teamwork. The best ideas often come from diverse perspectives and a willingness to challenge assumptions and think creatively. As leaders, we need to foster an environment that encourages open communication and meaningful collaboration across teams and disciplines. I find there is a lot of talk of collaboration but a lot of the time that is just that – talk. So my advice would be to stay open and curious, and jump on that call or have that meeting as you never know who or what it will lead you to! And then most importantly – action it.
