politicotech rao 2x1Join Intel’s Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Artificial Intelligence Naveen Rao as he opens a conversation about the role of government in shaping the future of AI.

Following the recent formation of a White House Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence, debate is heating up around the administration’s appropriate response toward regulating AI. A discipline crucial to national competitiveness, what will help our nation continue to move at the speed of innovation?

John Delaney (D-Md.), co-chair, Al Caucus; Dean Garfield, president and CEO, the Information Technology Council; Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas); and Rashida Richardson, director, Policy Research, AI Now Institute, NYU. The session, moderated by POLITICO Pro Senior Technology Reporter Nancy Scola, will explore the tensions and opportunities surrounding this complex issue to understand if a consensus could be reached on the government’s role in AI – what is too much and what is too little?
