Our Mission


The Center for AI and Digital Policy aims to ensure that artificial intelligence and digital policies promote a better society, more fair, more just, and more accountable – a world where technology promotes broad social inclusion based on fundamental rights, democratic institutions, and the rule of law.


Working under the auspices of the Michael Dukakis Institute and in collaboration with the AI World Society and the Boston Global Forum, the Center for AI and Digital Policy will bring together world leaders, innovators, advocates, and thinkers to promote established frameworks for AI policy – including the OECD AI Principles and the Universal Guidelines for AI – and to explore emerging challenges.
