The Assembly program is pleased to announce a new publication proposing a statutory safe harbor from the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and section 1201 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act for security research activities using a constructed communication protocol based on a responsible disclosure model.
Assembly, at the Berkman Klein Center & MIT Media Lab, gathers developers, managers, and tech industry professionals for a rigorous spring term course on internet policy and a twelve-week collaborative development period to explore hard problems with running code.
Each Assembly cohort comes together around a defined challenge. In 2017, the Assembly pilot program focused on the future of digital security. The cohort’s outputs are featured on the 2017 program and project pages.
Our new cohort in 2018 will come together to tackle the challenges of artificial Intelligence and its governance.
