He contributes actively to advancing dialogue on public policy challenges at the intersection of law, science, and technology. He is co-chair of the Law Committee of the IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems; is chair of The Future Society’s Science, Law and Society Initiative and Senior Advisor to its Artificial Intelligence Initiative; and chaired the Law Committee of the Global Governance of AI Roundtable hosted in Dubai as part of the 2018 World Government Summit.
