The Future of Humans and Machines: Assuring Artificial Intelligence
As advancements in artificial intelligences continue to accelerate, we must ensure that AI-enabled systems remain safe, secure and aligned with human intent. This forum will convene thought leaders from the national security, applied research, and AI Safety communities to chart a course for the coming decades towards assuring AI systems for real-world operation. This day-long event will include a series of panel discussions, spotlight talks and a technology showcase exploring intersections between leading-edge research and pathfinding applications across AI.
Confirmed keynote speakers include Lt. Gen. John “Jack” Shanahan, Director of the Joint AI Center of the U.S. Department of Defense, Max Tegmark, MIT Professor and Director of the Future of Life Institute (working to ensure that artificial intelligence is beneficial to humanity’s future), and Bob Work, Former Deputy Secretary of Defense, currently serving as Co-Chair of the National Security Commission on AI. We will keep you updated as additional speakers are confirmed.
