Hands-on accelerated class on artificial intelligence and law & ethics to equip small teams of students to explore, design, and pitch AI-driven, ethical innovations to address some of the most pressing societal issues of our time, including:
Education and the Digital Divide | Racial Inequality in Policing | Digital Democracy and Governance
Environmental Conservation | Equal Access to Legal Services | Digital Privacy, Compliance, and Ethics
- 2-day workshop, Saturday, Jan. 9 – Sunday, Jan. 10 (9:00-2:00 pm PT both days)
- Required team formation and intro session on Thursday, Jan. 7 (4:30-6:00 pm PT)
All classes taught virtually from Stanford and Northwestern University.
Space is limited, and only for Stanford & Northwestern students from their respective Schools of Law, CS/Engineering, and Business.
What does it take to innovate and build companies/ventures in areas that address some of society’s most pressing needs? How might artificial intelligence and computational technologies contribute to exponential innovation in these areas? How can we properly address privacy considerations, prevent bias, and comply with law, regulation, and ethical standards to ensure that these innovative ventures provide solutions that have high social impact and are sustainable ventures?
You will learn and explore these questions in this bootcamp, while you work in a small team to build a startup idea addressing one of these pressing societal issues. You will then pitch your idea to a panel of VCs, public interest leaders, and AI entrepreneurs in a finale. No prior knowledge of AI or familiarity with the subject areas is necessary.
