Columbia Effective Altruism and Roosevelt at Columbia have organized an AI policy hackathon on Saturday, April 23 from 9am to 7pm EDT, open to virtual and in-person participants! No prior experience with AI governance or policy writing is required. Up to $3,000 in prizes available.
As artificial intelligence is expected to have a dramatic influence on our world in the coming decades, it’s increasingly urgent to develop policies for governments and corporations to reduce risks from advanced AI. During the hackathon, your team of 1–4 people will write and present a brief policy memo. There will also be workshops to help you deepen your understanding of AI governance, effective policy research and writing, and other crucial skills. If we get enough Georgia Tech participants, we’ll get a room on-campus with free food for the hackathon. In addition to our first place, second place, and third place cash prizes, all teams that submit a memo will receive a prize.
