MIT’s Efforts at Informing AI Policy

Date: February 2, 2024
Time: 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This workshop will consider key questions about how to effectively govern the use of AI. The discussion will build on recently released policy briefs aimed at delivering technically informed recommendations on AI policy, produced by several MIT faculty as part of an initiative led by the College of Computing and MIT DC Office. The aim of this discussion-oriented workshop is the continued development of practical, technically informed AI policy recommendations. The first session of the workshop will be dedicated to a discussion of the policy brief on an overarching AI governance framework, as well as issues particular to large-scale generative models. We will use the second session to dive deeper on issues such as auditing, data ownership, and other topics that arise in the discussion.
