AI is changing how people work, communicate, learn and organize. Transformative AI technologies are being deployed and widely adopted, but it is not clear if and how to evaluate and govern them. This creates a tension between the desire to rapidly deploy ubiquitous AI that may transform society for good and the risks and harms that arise as AI tools are used in new ways, embedded in complex systems.
Core to our approach is the recognition that good policy must be connected to a deep technical understanding and technology should be deployed with sensitivity to implementation, governance, equity and social impact. This approach uniquely positions us to deliver timely education and problem-driven research that bridges traditional boundaries.
GW’s Trustworthy AI Initiative integrates a collection of research and educational centers, institutes, programs and projects across our comprehensive university to pursue a holistic approach to the development of new technologies and institutions that realize the potential of responsible, trustworthy AI while building the foundation for widespread adoption and positive integration across the spectrum of society.
The institute will integrate broader participation in AI design, new technology and process development and more informed governance of AI-infused systems.
Ph.D. fellows from GW’s Designing Trustworthy AI Systems program are gaining firsthand knowledge about convergent problems in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
