AI Public Policy Conference
December 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$199
This conference will bring together leaders from across the innovation spectrum and across the state in a day-long retreat to make connections, build bridges, and expand knowledge – all focused on strengthening the state’s innovation economy. This year, the public policy conference is focused on better understanding the landscape of artificial intelligence and creating a robust conversation about how Washington State can continue to be a leader in this technological advancement.
Our agenda includes a morning of presentations that will establish a fundamental understanding of artificial intelligence with ample opportunity to engage and ask questions. Washington state AI experts will also share their work from both the east and west sides of the state. After lunch and a networking break, our conference will resume with a keynote discussion of the relevant policy issues in AI and industry case study perspectives. Finally, our day will conclude with insights from other policy makers and experts into what is necessary to keep Washington competitive in AI.
