AI, Platforms, and Society Center

The Artificial Intelligence, Platforms, and Society Center offers a unique forum for students, academics, practitioners, and technology companies to explore technical and governance strategies to support responsible technology development and use, including the role of the private sector and state, federal, and international laws, regulations, and policies in shaping these strategies.

In addition to creating a community for attorneys to better understand current issues, the Center supports research and training related to responsible platform governance; AI governance; and development, use, and validation of technologies used in the legal profession. 

The strength of this Center is its breadth of subject-matter expertise. The Faculty and Instructors that drive and contribute to this Center are among the world’s leading experts on issues from generative AI to platform governance to the intersection of AI and criminal justice. Notably, the AI Center collaborates with the Privacy & Cybersecurity Center and the Center for Technology, Justice & the Courts to create a unique environment for education, research, and policy development.

The Center is a joint effort between the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology and the CITRIS Policy Lab. The Center’s collaborative approach and multidisciplinary research also involves the Goldman School of Public Policy, the School of Information, and the College of Engineering.

We host and sponsor academic-focused events and industry-focused events–most of which are open to the public at no charge. Check out our upcoming events. As for past events, many of them are available on-demand–and free of charge–in our video library, B-CLE.  

Berkeley Law offers many classes associated with the Center’s work. Over the course of their studies, students will have opportunities to study with some of the best minds in the legal industry. Examples of past and planned courses are included in our Related Courses link.
