How the executive order on AI provides opportunities for higher ed
On Oct. 30, President Biden released an executive order with guidelines to promote “safe, secure and trustworthy artificial intelligence.”
In response, Camille Crittenden, Ph.D., who is executive director of CITRIS and the Banatao Institute as well as co-founder of both the CITRIS Policy Lab and the Women in Tech Initiative at UC, wrote an article that details how institutions of higher education stand to benefit from the priorities outlined in the order — from investments in research, education and workforce training to improving AI governance and health equity.
“As the largest institution of public higher education in the world in a state that is home to the leading tech companies creating and selling AI products and platforms, the University of California has an opportunity to lead the way in productively addressing the priorities articulated by the Biden administration,” she writes.
