On Thursday, May 6 and Friday, May 7, the AI Policy Online forum– an international effort convened by scientists from MIT– will provide their initial policy suggestions targeted at handling the impacts of artificial intelligence and structure AI systems that much better reflect society’s worths. Acknowledging that there is not likely to be any particular national AI policy, however rather public laws for the unique ways in which we experience AI in our lives, forum leaders will preview their initial findings and policy suggestions in three key locations: financing, mobility, and health care.

The inaugural AI Policy Online Forum Seminar, a virtual event hosted by the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing, will unite AI and public policy leaders, federal government authorities from around the world, regulators, and advocates to examine some of the pushing questions postured by AI in our economies and societies. The seminar’s program will include remarks from public policymakers helping shape governments’ techniques to AI; state and federal regulators on the front lines of these issues; designers of self-driving cars and trucks and cancer-diagnosing algorithms; faculty analyzing the systems used in emerging finance business and associated concerns; and scientists pressing the boundaries of AI.
