Artificial intelligence is a hot topic, but what is it and what do policymakers need to know? Where does one even start? Is it a field, a technology, an application, or something else? How should lawmakers approach the complex questions AI technologies raise across so many sectors?
On behalf of the GRAIL Network (Governance & Research for Artificial Intelligence Leadership), the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT) and the R Street Institute cordially invite you to join us for the first in a series of informational briefings on artificial intelligence. In this briefing, our experts will offer grounding insights and foundational information for lawmakers and policymakers to build their understanding of some of the central considerations surrounding AI.
In this series, we ask members of GRAIL to present on topics they think are most important for policymakers to understand. Topics will include how to think about AI systems, automation and the future of work, bias and discrimination, and more. GRAIL members are among the leading scholars in their fields, and we are pleased to offer their expertise as a resource for policymakers wishing to build upon their understanding of both the technical inner workings of AI systems as well as the impacts this field of study could have on society.
