Blueprint For Artificial Intelligence Bill Of Rights

April 13, 2023, 6:30 PM


Sorelle Friedler Ph.D. is the Shibulal Family Associate Professor of Computer Science at Haverford College. She served as the Assistant Director for Data and Democracy for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy where her work included the AI Bill of Rights. Her research focuses on the fairness and interpretability of machine learning algorithms, with applications from criminal justice to materials discovery.

6:30pm - Interactive AI workshop

7:00pm - Lecture

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing our lives everyday. As tech companies, researchers, and users advance the technology, what policies should govern its use? How should we think about our rights and responsibilities in this changing landscape? In what ways can computer scientists and policy experts work together to create effective guidelines and regulatory practices to create a responsible AI future?

Please join us for a conversation with Dr. Sorelle Friedler, the co-author of the AI Bill of Rights and former Assistant Director for Data and Democracy for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Dr. Friedler will talk about the policy challenges presented by AI technology and how lawmakers, practitioners and advocates are responding.

This event is a collaboration between the Davis Institute for Artificial Intelligence, the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs, Departments of Computer Science, Science, Technology, and Society (STS), and Anthropology. A Q&A discussion session moderated by Farah Qureshi, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, will follow the talk.

In addition to a conversation with Dr. Friedler, there will be an interactive workshop preceding her talk where you can try out OpenAI’s newest large language model (LLM) tool, GPT-4 and other generative AI applications.

We will also be live-streaming the event with Dr. Friedler. For those of you who are not local, we encourage you to join using this live-streaming link.
