Stanford HAI Conference on Policy & AI: Four Radical Proposals for a Better Society



We are pleased to invite you to the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) virtual fall conference on Policy & AI: Four Radical Proposals for a Better Society on November 9-10, 2021.

This year’s virtual fall conference features a novel format. We will present and discuss four policy proposals that respond to the issues and opportunities created by artificial intelligence. Each policy proposal will be a radical challenge to the status quo and capable of having a significant and far-reaching positive impact on humanity. The proposals will be presented to a panel of experts from multiple disciplines and backgrounds, who will vet, debate, and judge the merits of each proposal. We will also encourage audience participation throughout.

Keynote Speakers:

Eric Lander, President’s Science Advisor and Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)

Rumman Chowdhury, Director of META (ML Ethics, Transparency, and Accountability), Twitter; Former CEO and Founder, Parity; Former Global Lead of Responsible AI, Accenture Applied Intelligence

The Proposals:

Universal Basic Income to Offset Job Losses Due to Automation: Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang
