Great Decisions in Foreign Policy

Artificial Intelligence & Data

The League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island sponsors Great Decisions, America's largest discussion program on world affairs. A new topic is presented each week during the series.

Policymakers in many countries are developing plans and funding research in artificial intelligence (AI). Global growth is slowing, and not surprisingly, many policymakers hope that AI will provide a magic solution. The EU, Brazil, and other Western countries have adopted regulations that grant users greater control over their data and require that firms using AI be transparent about how they use it. Will the U.S. follow suit?

The program involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, and meeting in a group to view a short film and discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. To order a copy of the book, which includes all eight topics, and for more information, call 212-481-8100 or visit https://www.fpa.org/great_decisions/?act=gd_materials.  For more information, email lwv.whidbey@gmail.com.
