AI Governance: A View from the States

30 October at 10:00 PT / 1:00PM ET / 5:00PM GMT

Recent advances in artificial intelligence have captured the public’s imagination. AI-powered tools seem poised to unlock human productivity by helping people make more informed decisions and better identify opportunities. But these advances have also raised questions among policymakers about what, if any guardrails are needed so that AI is developed and used responsibly.

As leaders in Washington, D.C., Sacramento, and state capitals across the country weigh these considerations, what role do AI impact assessments have in promoting AI trust and accountability? How can policymakers balance responsible AI development and innovation?
