Join Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Anja Kaspersen in this latest AIEI webinar featuring Gary Marchant and Carlos Ignacio Gutierrez as they discuss their work on characterizing soft law programs for the governance of artificial intelligence (AI). Soft law is defined as any program that sets substantive expectations, but is not directly enforceable by government.
For the past year and a half, Marchant and Ignacio Gutierrez built a database of 634 programs from 64 countries/regions and classified them with up to 107 variables/themes. The presentation highlights the strengths and opportunities of this governance tool. With the launch of this effort, their hope is that this information becomes a valuable resource for stakeholders looking to create, adopt, amend, or better understand the role of soft law programs in managing applications and methods of AI.
