The impact of advances in artificial intelligence (AI) does not stop at national borders; successful governance of AI and related technologies relies on transnational expertise and coordination. Policymakers need the knowledge and skills required to reap the benefits of AI, while mitigating its risks.

The EUI School of Transnational Governance and Stanford University’s Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence therefore join forces to contribute to better AI legislation and regulation.

The first edition of the AI Online Intensive Policy Lab will bring together a select group of policymakers, high-level officials, and regulators with leading AI experts from academia and the world of practice, as well as social scientists, data scientists, and tech futurists. The group will include US members of congress and members of the European Parliament.

The policy lab sessions are intended to increase the understanding of AI technologies and their legal and transnational implications, and to improve future legislative and regulatory dialogue and outcomes, both domestically and internationally.

The group will engage in interactive discussions with experienced trainers and guest lecturers covering a broad range of policy issues related to AI, including near-term challenges and longer-term prospects.

Participants will have the opportunity to interact, discuss, and help shape policy solutions for the future of AI with colleagues from across the Atlantic.
