Chinese Assessments of AI: Risks and Approaches to Mitigation

March 28, 2024 • 1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT

Brought to you by

As artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities and applications develop at an unprecedented pace, governments around the world are grappling with the regulatory, commercial, and ethical risks and opportunities. How is Beijing looking at this issue? How did the emergence of ChatGPT and the commercialization of generative AI change how Chinese policymakers are weighing the risks and challenges of the technology? Where do Beijing’s perspectives on AI regulation and application converge and diverge from other capitals around the world?

Please join the Interpret: China project to discuss these important questions with a panel of leading experts who will unpack recently translated primary source materials. Hosted by Lily McElwee, deputy director and fellow at the Freeman Chair in China Studies, the panel will feature Kendra Schaefer, head of tech policy research at Trivium China, Matt Sheehan, fellow with the Asia program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and Graham Webster, editor in chief of DigiChina and research scholar at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University.

This event is made possible by support from the Ford Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
