Free Public Panels: Governance in an Emerging New World | Stanford

George P. Shultz’s project of Governance in an Emerging New World explores the challenges and opportunities for democracy, economy, and security posed by emerging technologies and societal changes from April to May at 4 pm until 5:15 pm.

Upcoming Free Public Panels:

  • April 8: Health and the Changing Environment
  • April 22: The Middle East in an Emerging World
  • May 6: Emerging Technology and America’s Economy
  • May 14: Stability in an Age of Disruptions

Artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing, and other new technologies appear poised to transform the world economy, and, though the transition may be painful, the United States is well-positioned to take advantage of these new opportunities.

Panelists will discuss the impact of changing demographics and advancing technology on the U.S. economy and what the United States can do to manage these changes and seize their potential, including improving the educational system, removing bias in AI, and ensuring a growing, productive population.

Moderated by Gopi Shah Goda, deputy director at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research
