A global collaboration moving from principles to practice

The rapidly increasing applicability of AI has prompted a number of organizations to develop high-level principles on social and ethical issues such as privacy, fairness, bias, transparency, and accountability. Now, it is time to take the next step.

Building on those broader principles, the AI Policy Forum, a global effort convened by the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing, will provide an overarching policy framework and tools for governments and companies to implement in concrete ways.

We aim to have real impact in the world of AI policy, as measured by clear action from governments and companies. This is a challenging and complex process, for which we need all hands-on deck.

The AI Policy Forum will be a yearlong process that brings together scientists, technologists, policymakers and business leaders, culminating in an event gathering high-level decision makers to provide a focal point for work to move from AI principles to AI practice, and to serve as a springboard to global efforts to design the future of AI.
