    The potential of new AI tools is unarguable, but the fundamental question remains: How much do you trust AI?

    Later, Mary discusses critical skills business leaders need to navigate trends, move beyond the hype of new technologies and progress toward genuine innovation. She then examines the potential of AI in very human fields like mental health and the challenges of integrating new technologies in more unexpected fields, such as cardiology.
