Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

AI is a new way of creating problem-solving systems as computer technologies mimic human intelligence to learn from data and make decisions.


Why Now?

AI is rapidly advancing from theory to practice, with game-changing implications for the economy, national security, and global quality of life.

  • The development and deployment of AI technologies promises to reshape great-power competition, trends in global workforces, the practice of warfare, and scientific progress.
  • Authoritarian regimes such as China and Russia use AI to repress freedoms of their own citizens and export those technologies to other authoritarian nations.
  • Governance structures and processes must be put in place to ensure accountability, transparency, and rule of law, maximizing AI’s positive benefits for society and minimizing its risks.

AI is the ultimate human ally, it will allow us to move from an Information Age, to an Insight Age, from being reactive to proactive, it will fuel our ability to action our curiosity, and it will be a mirror that requires us to confront the best and worst of our own humanity.

Vint Cerf: Ethics Counts in a World Animated by Software

An ethical approach to software development relies on five core elements: reliability, security, data protection, transparency, and accountability. Companies developing software must recognize a responsibility to these ethical standards beyond the initial release of their products. At the same time, user agency and engagement are also critically important. Users are responsible for challenging potential hazards stemming from the use of the software. Vint Cerf, widely recognized as one of the “Fathers of the Internet,” was a co-developer of the TCP/IP communication protocols used to build the Internet. He is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the National Medal of Technology, and the Turing Award, among others. He now serves as Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist at Google.
