Who would you rather have access to human-level artificial intelligence: the US government, Google, the Chinese government or Baidu? The biggest governments and tech firms are the most likely to develop advanced AI, so understanding their goals, abilities and constraints is a vital part of predicting AI’s trajectory.

Jade Leung is the Head of Research and Partnerships at the Centre for Governance of Artificial Intelligence (GovAI), housed at the Future of Humanity Institute, University of Oxford (https://www.fhi.ox.ac.uk/governance-ai-program/). GovAI strives to help humanity capture the benefits and mitigate the risks of artificial intelligence, focusing on the political challenges arising from transformative AI: advanced AI systems whose long-term impacts may be as profound as the industrial revolution. Jade’s work focuses on emerging and dual-use technology governance, the role of private companies, firm-government relations, and international cooperation.

Alongside her work at GovAI, Jade is a PhD candidate at the University of Oxford in International Relations. She is also the founding COO of Soul Capital, New Zealand’s first impact investment fund, and Co-Lead of the Rhodes Artificial Intelligence Lab, an action lab consultancy which uses AI and machine learning to create solutions to high-impact problems.

In this talk, Jade will explore how we can think about major players in AI. Join us for a fascinating talk, and an opportunity to discuss the issues further with Jade over refreshments at the end.

There will also be an opportunity to go to dinner with Jade at 6.00pm prior to the event. Please sign-up here if you’d be interested in attending: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdQSAkGiTFgxBgvKppuvT8wPcuj3bf7RJfWrGjgedMTkjkd1w/viewform?usp=sf_link
