Join us on Tuesday, October 12 at 4:30pm ET for a Study Group with IOP Resident Fellow Congressman Mac Thornberry.

Artificial Intelligence
Both China and the United States see artificial intelligence as central to military and other security efforts.  Who is ahead in that competition?  And how can a democracy compete while remaining true to our values?  What role does public opinion play in such a technical area? 

Congressman Thornberry will be joined virtually by Yll Bajraktari, Executive Director, landmark National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence and Harvard Kennedy School graduate.

You must register through the form and a limited number of seats will be allocated for in-person participation. We will notify you at noon the day of the study group via your Harvard email whether you will be joining in-person or via Zoom. 

*AUDIENCE: These conversations are open to members of the Harvard community. Please RSVP with a valid Harvard email address.

*OFF-THE-RECORD: In keeping with our long tradition at the IOP to ensure honest and candid discussions of politics, all IOP study groups are off-the-record.
