About this event
On September 28, 2022, the MIT AI Policy Forum — MIT Schwarzman College of Computing’s effort to move the global conversation about the impact of AI from principles to practical policy implementation — is convening leaders from government, business, and academia virtually for the inaugural AI Policy Forum Summit. The program will involve participants engaging in a day-long dialogue, focusing on the global policy challenges surrounding the deployment of AI in key areas such as development of truly trustworthy AI, the challenge of making AI work for consumers in finance, and charting a viable path towards social media reform.
There is, of course, no shortage of discussion about AI at different venues, but we believe that the current public discourse would greatly benefit from a deeper and more focused inquiry. To this end, the AI Policy Forum Summit will involve exploration and in-depth discussions of key questions and issues in this space, as well as consideration of possible future developments and concrete guidance for governments and companies on implementing AI-related policies.
The AI Policy Forum Summit will feature a number high-level decision makers from business, government, multilateral organizations and academia discussing key AI policy challenges and opportunities. Confirmed speakers include:
- Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO
- Mathias Cormann, Secretary General of the OECD
- Gary Gensler, Chair of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
- Stephen A. Schwarzman, Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder of Blackstone
- L. Rafael Reif, President of MIT
- Melissa Nobles, Chancellor of MIT
- Dan Huttenlocher, Dean of the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing
