Six UC Berkeley graduate students have been selected to join the UC Berkeley AI Policy Hub, an interdisciplinary center focused on translating scientific research into governance frameworks to help guide the development and adoption of artificial intelligence (AI).

The AI Policy Hub is a joint effort of the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity at the UC Berkeley School of Information and the  CITRIS Policy Lab.

“As AI becomes more pervasive in society, there is a critical need to train future leaders who can best ensure society benefits from this transformative technology,” says Brandie Nonnecke, director of the CITRIS Policy Lab and co-director of the AI Policy Hub. “The AI Policy Hub is preparing future leaders with the knowledge and skills to best ensure AI is a force for good.”

The 2023–24 fellows include Marwa Abdulhai, Jessica Dai, Ritwik Gupta, Christian Ikeokwu and Guru Vamsi Policharla, all doctoral students in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, and Janiya Peters, a doctoral student in the School of Information.
