Global Perspectives on AI Governance

April 10, 2024

A showcase of lawyers studying for their LL.M.s in Technology Law & Policy as part of Tech & Society Week 2024.

UNESCO, the OECD, President Biden’s Executive Order, and the EU AI Act all emphasize the importance of diverse perspectives when analyzing artificial intelligence’s unique and novel challenges. Global Perspectives on AI Governance will highlight the international perspectives of experts in Georgetown’s Tech LL.M. program, who will bring their experience working in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean to bear and provide insights on the critical issue of how regulatory approaches to AI will differ across countries and regions. The event will take place on Wednesday, April 10, from 3:00–4:00 pm on Georgetown’s Capitol Campus. Register for the free event here.
