Eileen Donahoe, executive director of Stanford University’s Global Digital Policy Incubator, believes we haven’t done enough on the cultural level and in terms of civic education.

But, should governments ban AI? She’s on the fence when asked during a Global Stage livestream conversation hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft.

On the one side, Donahoe understands those like scholar Larry Diamond, her colleague at Stanford, who want to put a stop to it all before AI ruins democracy. On the other, Donahue also believes that the founders of OpenAI are genuinely committed to the future of humanity.
