**Update on 3/5/2020: Our March 18th event on ‘AI Governance: Mitigating Misuse Potential’ has been canceled due to flight restrictions for our international panelists in the wake of further spread of COVID-19. We hope to reschedule the event in the months to come, and will update this page once we know more. Thank you for your support.

Join our international panel of experts to discuss their work including AI opportunities and risks, the responsibilities of AI researchers, open publication norms, and how to fill current gaps in the AI governance landscape.

Artificial intelligence (AI)’s rapid development brings both incredible opportunities and grave societal challenges. The transformational nature of AI is only expected to increase into the future, making questions of governance not only urgent, but also uniquely challenging. How can we encourage widespread innovation and access while simultaneously addressing risks related to safety, security, accountability, and society?

  • Rosie Campbell, Program Lead at The Partnership on AI;
  • Allan Dafoe, Director of Oxford University’s Centre for the Governance of AI;
  • Irene Solaiman, Policy Researcher at OpenAI;
  • Jaan Tallinn, founding engineer of Skype and Kazaa, and co-founder of the Future of Life Institute and the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk
  • Moderator: Jessica Cussins Newman of UC Berkeley’s AI Security Initiative at the Center for Long-Term Cyberesecurity (CLTC)
