The Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Public Policy will launch on 30 May.
About the Centre
The Centre will be dedicated to exploring policy options for managing the introduction of AI technologies, so as to maximise their benefits and minimise potential harms. The Centre will study AI-related policies proposed and/or implemented internationally, and participate in the wide-ranging international investigation of the impacts of AI. It will pay particular attention to evaluating policy options for New Zealand.
The Centre will provide a hub for collaboration between a number of existing initiatives at Otago, including:
- The New Zealand Law Foundation funded Artificial Intelligence and Law in NZ Project
- The University of Otago’s Artificial Intelligence and Society Group which includes over 50 researchers and graduate students from a broad group of academic disciplines including: Computer Science, Law, Philosophy, Economics, Information Science, Linguistics, Politics, and Sociology.
