The Harvard Law AI Law and Policy Student Association is excited to announce a lunch event with Chris Byrd from the RAND Corporation. Food will be provided!

Event details: Fast moving emerging technologies are notoriously difficult to govern. Nevertheless, governments in the US, UK, and EU have all taken action to establish oversight of Frontier AI. This talk will discuss what may have motivated these governments to act, describe some of the steps taken so far, and explore areas of consensus and divergence between the three approaches. Time permitting, we’ll conclude with a broader discussion of the policy toolkit for AI governance, and speculate on what may happen next.

His current interests include defense industrial base modernization, export control reform, and information security for AI hardware and datacenters.
