How do we maximize AI’s benefits while addressing risks?

AI, like any other technology, has “the potential to become both a tool and a weapon.” Come hear Brad Smith of Microsoft and Mariano Florentino (Tino) Cuéllar of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace talk about our future in a world with AI in a conversation moderated by Judge McKeown.

Welcome by Hon. Eric D. Miller, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

A former justice of the Supreme Court of California, he served two U.S. presidents at the White House and in federal agencies, and was a faculty member at Stanford University for two decades.

BRAD SMITH serves as Microsoft’s vice chair and president, leading work on a wide range of issues involving the intersection between technology and society, including cybersecurity, privacy, ethics and artificial intelligence, human rights, immigration, philanthropy and environmental sustainability.
