The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University and the MIT Media Lab are excited to announce the launch of the 2018 Assembly program, a program that brings together 15 to 20 participants from various backgrounds to collaborate on one or more projects that address a specific tech problem.
After a successful run of the Assembly pilot program in 2017, which focused on digital security, the Berkman Klein Center and the MIT Media Lab have combined forces, as part of our larger Ethics and Governance in Artificial Intelligence Initiative, to support a second iteration of the program with a new challenge; this year’s topic will be artificial intelligence and governance.
We are looking for applicants with experience in one or more of the following areas who also have an interest in artificial intelligence and governance issues:
Applied Machine Learning & Data Scientists
Program and Product Managers
Communications Strategists and PR experts
This is a unique opportunity for participants to learn, connect, and collaborate with other skilled developers and tech professionals across industries and backgrounds, to step back from day-to-day goals, and to explore novel solutions to difficult problems at the Berkman Klein Center and the MIT Media Lab.
