The Center for AI Policy is a new DC-based organization developing and advocating for policy to mitigate catastrophic AI risks.
Our current focus is building capacity in the US government to monitor and safeguard AI development. Our proposed legislation would establish a federal authority to monitor hardware and license frontier AI development, ensuring we can identify and respond to risks. It would also create strict liability for severe harms caused by AI systems, promoting accountability and improving incentives.
Our team includes Thomas Larsen (Executive Director), who has a background in technical AI safety; Jason Green-Lowe (Legislative Director), who has a legal background; and Jakub Kraus (Operations Director), who has a computer science background. We’re also advised by experts from other organizations and supported by several volunteers.
You would be a key voice in our developing organization.
