Dr. Colin Garvey, a post-doctoral research at Stanford's Institute for Human-Centered AI and Center for International Security and Cooperation, will present his talk: "Scanning the AI Risk Horizon: Cybersecurity, Trust, and other Challenges."
Dr. Garvey is a graduate of the Science and Technology Studies Ph.D. program at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a research focus on the governance of risky technologies. His recent and upcoming research articles not only analyze the trajectory of AI research in the United States, but compares it with the political economy of Japanese AI. He won "Best Early Career Paper" award in 2017 from the Society for the History of Technology. His work challenges traditional binary thinking about AI as either utopia or dystopia, heaven or hell, arguing that more democratic policy innovations are necessary to avert catastrophe and realize the best that AI technology has to offer, especially for cybersecurity. Dr. Garvey is also fluent in Japanese and a Zen Buddhist monk, and freelances as a translator of Japanese books and scientific articles.
