About the Initiative
The Brookings Institution Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Technology (AIET) Initiative aims to advance good governance of transformative new technologies. With so many of these new technologies’ capabilities and implications still largely unknown, it is critical that the next generation of policies and norms is informed by ideals of economic and national security, transparency, fairness, and inclusion.
By publishing timely, rigorous research and bringing together leaders and researchers from across the technology and policymaking sectors, the Brookings AIET Initiative strives to identify the governance models and best practices necessary for society to gain the benefits of A.I. and emerging technology while responsibly managing their risks.
Under the leadership of Brookings President John R. Allen, the independent and non-partisan research of the Brookings AIET Initiative draws on scholars from all five research programs at Brookings, as well as relevant experts from academia, government, civil society, and the technology industry. Importantly, the Brookings AIET Initiative seeks to bridge the growing divides between industry, civil society, and policymakers.

“There are parts that machine learning can probably help with, but fully automated interviews, where you’re making inferences about job performance—that’s terrible. Modern artificial intelligence can’t make those inferences.”
