Government Perspectives on AI Impact Assessments

This event has passed.

Event Series
AI Impact and Assessment Language matters in policy, and in the case of AI, there is a lack of consensus for defining the scope and definitions used for impact and risk frameworks. Creating common narratives that define AI impact is critical for mitigating defined risks. Without an intentional effort to create this shared understanding, risks can go unidentified or underestimated. Often there is even disagreement on the meanings and scope of the language used to define AI risks and impacts. Our research has identified over 70 different frameworks around the world. The Bipartisan Policy Center recognizes the need for the US to create a shared understanding of the language used to define impact. We will convene stakeholders to address this issue and work toward shared definitions.

Second in Series
BPC will host two former Federal Chief Technology Officers to hear about how the US government is responding to advances in AI and the need to understand its impact. They will be joined by organizations that work with government agencies to develop AI, assess its impacts and research the latest technology.
