Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's testimony before Congress earlier this year highlighted how poorly informed U.S. lawmakers are about how modern technology actually works. The hearing inspired Harvard Kennedy School's Dipayan Ghosh and former U.S. Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler to launch a new artificial intelligence (AI) policy initiative focusing on expanding the legal and academic scholarship around AI ethics and regulation.

The initiative also will host a boot camp to help Congressional representatives learn more about the technology, with the goal of helping policymakers be better equipped to effectively regulate and guide the growing impact of AI on society.
