Policy & AI: Four Radical Proposals for a Better Society
This year’s virtual fall conference features a novel format. We will present and discuss four policy proposals that respond to the issues and opportunities created by artificial intelligence. Each policy proposal will be a radical challenge to the status quo and capable of having a significant and far-reaching positive impact on humanity. The proposals will be presented to a panel of experts from multiple disciplines and backgrounds, who will vet, debate, and judge the merits of each proposal. We will also encourage audience participation throughout.
