When: March 18, 2021 3:00pm-4:00pm ET

How will AI, robots and automation impact labor, economic growth and future productivity? How should policymakers think about education, skill building, and job creation? What issues should we prioritize as automation and AI drive these economy-wide transitions?
Join us for the second in a series of informational briefings on artificial intelligence, hosted by the GRAIL Network (Governance & Research for Artificial Intelligence Leadership), a joint initiative from the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT) and the R Street Institute.
In this briefing, our economic experts will talk about the economic consequences of AI, robotics and other advanced technologies, and discuss how technology affects jobs, skills and wages.
We’ve asked 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.
The GRAIL network includes 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.
We hope you will join us, we encourage your questions — we intend for these briefings to be both informative and interactive!
