Governance of artificial intelligence

The governance of artificial intelligence (or AI governance) is the study of norms, policies, and institutions that can help humanity navigate the transition to a world with advanced artificial intelligence. This includes a broad range of subjects, from global coordination around regulating AI development to providing incentives for corporations to be more cautious in their AI research.
