Governance in the Age of AI

Artificial intelligence is a powerful technology with capabilities that are open to use by state and non-state actors. In this conversation Azeem Azhar, De Kai, and Joanna Bryson discuss how governance should adapt as our institutions are challenged by unintended consequences of the technology and its creators.

Joanna, De Kai, and Azeem also discuss:

  • Why rule-based systems fall short of protecting us against the unintended consequences of technology.
  • The value of cross-cultural dialogue in establishing common values to guide the governance of AI globally.
  • The role of the leading technology companies in regulating the industry.
