Our work seeks to catalyze and advance AI in the public interest, with the aim of including the broadest possible set of voices in the discussions around understanding and addressing the human impacts of AI. The Berkman Klein Center and the MIT Media Lab will act as a collaborative platform where stakeholders working across disciplines, sectors, and geographies can meet, engage, learn, and share. This set of related resources features a sample of the significant work already being conducted within the broader community. Our continued work will build on previous and existing collaborations, and we are excited to establish new connection points with others in the field.
