AI for Good: The Promise and the Peril

There is much discussion about the potential of advances in AI to transform the human experience and improve human wellbeing. But as with any frontier technology, there are both opportunities and risks — and the effects on society of AI will be a function of both the choices technologists make as well as the way in which AI is governed. We’ll explore this new frontier from the perspective of public policy, as well as through the lens of some particular use cases.

Jeremy Weinstein is Professor of Political Science, Fisher Family Director of Stanford Global Studies, and Senior Fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research at Stanford University. He also is faculty co-director of the Immigration Policy Lab and the Data for Development Initiative. In addition, he is a non-resident fellow at the Center for Global Development in Washington, D.C.

Note: This event is open to Stanford students and staff; however, there is also a version that is open to the public. Please send us an email for more details.
