On the 18th of June, the Center for the Governance of Artificial Intelligence (GovAI) is organising the seminar ‘Socially Responsible AI: A Perspective from Google’s DeepMind’ which is part of the Center for the Governance of AI Trinity Term Seminar Series.

Attend this event to:

  • discuss some of the questions tech companies face when trying to develop and deploy ethical AI
  • unpack how even the simplest ethical questions can, on closer inspection, become complex
  • explore elements of social impact that need to be accounted for when understanding and managing the implications of new technology

Sasha is an Ethics and Policy Researcher at DeepMind. She has an academic background in neuroscience and behavioural science and has used this training in jobs ranging from creating BBC Horizon programmes to working on Obama’s 2012 campaign. Before DeepMind, she worked at Google, advising non-profits and the UK Government on their digital strategies. She has an MBA from INSEAD.

Allan Dafoe will be joining Sasha on stage as discussant and host. Allan Dafoe is the Associate Professor and Senior Research Fellow in the International Politics of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Oxford. He is also Director of the Center for the Governance of AI (GovAI), at University of Oxford’s Future of Humanity Institute, which is a leading site for governance thinking about AI. Allan’s research focuses on characterising and building the field of AI governance, and on great power cooperation and conflict around AI.

The Center for the Governance of AI, housed at the Future of Humanity Institute, strives to help humanity capture the benefits and mitigate the risks of artificial intelligence. Their main focus is on the political challenges arising from transformative AI: advanced AI systems whose long-term impacts may be as profound as the industrial revolution. The Center seeks to guide the development of AI for the common good by conducting research on important and neglected issues of AI governance, and advising decision makers on this research through policy engagement.
