Dakota State University President Dr. José-Marie Griffiths moderated a briefing Wednesday on artificial intelligence for members of the U.S. Senate, according to Sen. Mike Rounds, R-South Dakota.
Griffiths said in a news release, “With so many questions about where AI is heading and how it will change the world, it is important that our leaders and policymakers understand AI technology.”
The briefing was the third bipartisan education session hosted by the Senate’s AI working group, which is led by Rounds, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, and Sens. Martin Heinrich, D-New Mexico, and Todd Young, R-Indiana. Griffiths was invited by Rounds to moderate the briefing.
Rounds said DSU, which is in Madison, and Griffiths are nationally recognized leaders in cybersecurity and artificial intelligence.
“The goal of the working group is to unite the Senate in a bipartisan way to address the challenges and opportunities posed by AI,” Rounds said in a news release.
DSU has three Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense, Research and Cyber Operations. There are 10 institutions in the United States that have all three of those designations, according to Rounds.
